Big news for The Challenge! The Challenge at Goat Hill Park – Driven by Innova has been added to the list of USDGC Qualifier Events for 2019! The top five finishers in MPO at The Challenge who have not already qualified for the 2019 USDGC by May 3-5 will be awarded invitations to the United States Disc Golf Championship, held at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
This is the first time that an event held in Southern California has been tapped to award USDGC invitations since the glory days of the Golden State Classic at La Mirada. We at The Challenge are pleased and honored to have this opportunity and are deep into the process of preparing an event worthy of qualifying players for one of disc golf’s premier events. We can assure the USDGC organizers that the five players who move on to Rock Hill from Goat Hill will have been tested by distance, elevation change, wind and tough pin positions.
If you’re a touring PDGA pro player we hope you decide to accept The Challenge and come to Oceanside, CA on the weekend of May 3-5, 2019. Take the southern route from Emporia to San Francisco – the combination of USDGC invitations, CCDG next-day coverage, UDisc Live scoring, ample payout, San Diego craft beer and beautiful Goat Hill Park sunsets will make it worth your while.
