This weekend, May 9th and 10th, PDGA Women want to see women and girls of all ages post a live video of themselves putting. We will be going live with videos of random giveaways all weekend during the Extravaganza! Even a sweet custom disc prize for the best dressed! So make sure you vote for your favorite video by liking it!
 
Here is how it will work:
  1. Go Live in this group. Title your Live Video with your name, PDGA number if you have one, and location. At the beginning of your video, state your name, and location (Country/State).
  2. Throw anywhere from 10-20 putts. You choose from how far you want to throw. Don’t have a basket? No worries! Make any type of target, such as a tree (tape an x or a box on it), Putt into a laundry basket, through a tire swing, get creative!
  3. Regardless of how many putts you make, fill out the form, which will be available here the day we start. This will make you eligible for random drawings of prizes from our wonderful sponsors.
  4. Encourage your female friends to join. Tag a couple friends in your post after it is loaded.

Change of guard and our summer schedule

Change of guard and our summer schedule

Well ladies, I’m officially announcing my semi-retirement as league director of our KC Women’s league. I’m taking a hiatus this season.

I want more time to focus on other ‘bigger picture’ projects that help grow women’s disc golf such as the Heartland Women’s Series. Another passion project that I feel has not gotten the attention it deserves since we started it in 2018. Not to mention, our oldest daughter, Sky and her family are moving to Washington in July so we want to have some extra time with our grandson – and Sky & Josh of course 🙂

Ladies Night Out began in 2010, which was a reboot of our original Girls Night Out we had here in KC late 90’s to early 2000’s. Sorry didn’t take time to dig up the actual dates.

Since then, we have built a solid foundation of women disc golfers here in the Kansas City area. Many of these awesome ladies are now stepping up to do more such as volunteer for course days and our local events, even blaze exciting new trails for women’s disc golf. I’m loving the fresh ideas and energy! Not just here in Kansas City but women are experiencing it in other cities. It’s a special time for women’s disc golf.

Some of my beauties will be spreading their wings this season!

Below are some noteable changes in our schedule, plus some recommended events.

 

League Nights:

 

Mondays: Ladies Night Out @ Rosedale 6pm
Effective June 10th, Crispian Paul will be taking over the league director role on Monday Nights at Rosedale. She lives just blocks from the course and is perfect fit.

Still Beginner Friendly and Free.

Got a +1 Dude that wants to tag along? No problem. Dude cards abide every week. Her husband Matt will also be attending occasionally when he’s not assisting with other KC Club leagues.

 

We know how difficult it can be to try to get across town before 6pm so we’re also adding some additional leagues at other courses to help accommodate.

 

Monday: Beginner league at Blue Valley of KS – 6PM
League Director: Anna Hare

To accommodate those on south side, and only in June initially as we test interest at this course. Women, Children and Men welcome. Free to play.

Wednesdays: Hidden Valley Doubles – 6PM – Kansas City Mo (near Worlds of Fun)
League Director: Tina Patterson and GLoSI.

Events:

 

  • Saturday June 8th: Play at the River – a Popup disc golf event presented by Friends of the River and Dynamic Discs. The KC Disc Golf Divas will be there- come play and stop by our tent.
  • Friday June 14 – Sunday 16: Kansas City Wide Open
  • Thursday June 20: KC Disc Golf Divas presenting Disc Golf at WinforKC Camp WIN for girls. (Coaches needed from 8:30am- 11:30am)
  • Saturday June 22: Flippin’ Sweet – a charity event at Thornfield Disc Golf Course. 
  • Saturday July 13: Omaha Ladies Open – Omaha NB – a Heartland Women’s Series event.

  • Saturday September 21: Flight of the Purple Unicorn. Doubles event at Pleasant Hill, Mo.   TD: Anne Quade. For those that can’t make the USWDGC this year, this is an all division bring your own partner doubles event supporting the 2020 KC Diva Spring Feeva. Camping available Friday and Saturday night.
  • Sunday October 6th: Throw Pink – Bad Rock Creek- Liberty MO. Proceeds to Gilda’s Club of Kansas City. TD: Tina Patterson
  • Saturday October 19: Kansas City Disc Golf Club Championships

Other KC Disc Golf Ladies On The Move:

 

  • Catch Jaimee Crosby of Yoga for Disc Golf at many of the events here in Kansas City this season. She provides pre-tournament yoga classes with stretches specifically designed for disc golfers.
  • Ladies of the Chains Podcast. A weekly podcast, posted every Monday, that discusses all things womens disc golf. Hosted and produced by Becca Kephart. Frequent guest host appearances by other KC women disc golfers.

I hope you all will support the other ladies and their leagues and events. I’m not disappearing completely. You’ll see Mama Diva around and at the local events.
