Our mission from the beginning has been to provide an unforgettable disc golf experience for ladies of all ages. We strive for this each year and 2018 will be no different. This event could not have grown to be one of the premier women’s only events without the women that play in it each year.
Based on previous years, we knew we would fill at 90 players, but we never anticipated we would do it in less than a week! It’s YOU, the women that make it so special. Your friendships, love, encouragement, and feedback the last few years continue to motivate us
We also have a tremendous support system within our local community. Kansas City loves disc golf and supports women in the sport. You’ll feel and experience this from checkin to when you leave the course on Saturday.
Ok so on to the announcements and updates…
It’s a Women’s Global Event so we said BOO to a waitlist! However, per Women’s Global guidelines “the exact same course layout must be used for both rounds”.
We didn’t want to split up across town if we could avoid it, and using all of the down under course made us a little nervous. With all that in mind and after MUCH discussion and consideration, we’ve got a plan! We will be creating 2 unique courses at Rosedale “up top” which will include utilizing some of the safer holes from the “down under” course. This will allow up to 144 women to play! The registration page has been updated and those previously on the waitlist have been promoted.
The final layout of these courses and schedule of play for divisions will be announced and posted as soon as we have that information available. Thanks for your patience. We’re excited about the possibilities!
Our Junior Divisions:
With a choice of playing just one round in the WGE, it was put to a vote and all the junior girls said “2 rounds please!” What champs! We currently have 6 junior girls registered- let’s invite more! If you know of a young lady that you think would have a great time and wants to meet some new friends, please share the event. We have a few junior sponsorships available. If the entry fee is of concern, please have them contact us and we’ll make sure to get that little detail worked out so they can play.
If you want to change the division you are currently registered in, we ask that you contact us ASAP. Keep in mind, there are now caps on some of the Amateur divisions so we cannot guarantee that we can move you.

The charity the WGE is supporting this year is the Disc Golf Foundation. This organization has been involved in our sport for more than 15 years and is motivated to make a big impact in 2018. We look forward to supporting their mission to facilitate more female disc golf players by introducing disc golf to Girl Scout troops across the U.S. and internationally!
