The Spring Fling - PDGA sanctioned event
The Spring Fling presented by Disc Golf Billings is the second stop of the annual Montana State Disc Golf Point Series and the club’s signature event.
We are going back to a ONE day tournament on May 20th. It will be two rounds played at Diamond X on the Red/Blue layout and the Orange layout. There is a cap this year of 80 players (35 pros, 45 Ams). The Professional divisions will be a sanctioned B tier while the Amateur divisions will be a C tier tournament allowing non active PDGA members to participate. Every year this tournament draws Montana’s most talented disc golfers, out of state competitors and is a huge hit with newcomers to the sport as well.

All rules set forth in the Official Rules of Disc Golf Rule 808 Scoring are in full effect and must be followed without exception.
If you lose or abandon a disc off of the cliff edge YOU MUST RE TEE FROM THE PREVIOUS LIE and take a penalty stroke. It is not out of bounds and you must replay from your previous lie.
You have 3 minutes from your turn to get to your disc and play your lie. Please throw a provisional for pace of play if you believe your disc is out of play.
You get two meters relief from any barbwire fence or cliff edge. If your disc lands in a crevice or on a cliff side, if you are able to get a hand or foot behind your disc then you must play from that position. If you can't position yourself behind your lie, you can play directly above your disc.
