Welcome to Tupelo Disc Golf Leagues! Continuing the tradition of promoting the sport locally, this site offers area players a unique system for disc golf competitions. It allows tournament directors to advertise their event(s) and submit results directly online. All events are included in the overall points series and can also be tied along with other events for smaller, multi-event points series, or leagues.
For those of you who follow this site I’ve been working diligently towards the development of a much broader site. Past efforts of revamping the SN site are being redirected towards development of a new site featuring only Mississippi tournaments, sort of a Mississippi points series of events!
To get the 2016 season started, Dustin allowed us to include his Ice Bowl events of this past weekend. Some of our southern Mississippi TD’s have been contacted and we’ll include their events as well. Robby’s Weapons of Grass Destruction are “on the books” and we’re testing an online pre-registration feature with his first event at Tomgibee.
Mississippi is #50 in many categories. Let’s make it #1 is disc golf!
How about working a little of that turkey dinner off this weekend? A lil’ speed golf action would do it! I think it would be interesting to see how the various divisions balance out with an event of this nature.
With the tournament season winding down, I could see this as a possibility locally. Maybe not 18 holes at first, but some 9 hole events followed by a casual laid back round. Who’d be interested in trying a round? Anyone up for a stab at it?
Object: To get the lowest score by finishing 18 holes in the fastest time with the fewest throws
Equipment: You may use as many discs as you want to carry.
- Use a stopwatch and start the clock on hole 1 teepad
- You must hole out on every hole. There are no gimmees.
- You do not need to mark your disc. You have the option to set your stance behind the disc where it lies, or to flip the disc over.
- No falling putts.
- OB throws must be played from the proper spot in bounds, and you add the usual 1 stroke penalty.
- Stop the clock when you’ve taken the disc out of the basket on hole 18.
Scoring: Score = Throws + Time.
Add together the total number of Throws plus the Time in minutes (converted to a decimal number). Since the number of throws is the most important aspect of disc golf this scoring method emphasizes the number of throws. Another advantage is that since it tracks the total number of throws courses with different pars can be compared.
1 throw = 1 minute. 72 is a pretty good score. A total score of 54 is an awesome round. For example: 52 Throws + Time of 25:30 minutes = 77.5
Who’d like tutorials on the simplicity of using our tournament database system? Well. here ya go! It’s my first swing at such a task, so be nice. Hopefully, the demonstrations will improve with experience. This initial video covers how simple it is to ….. “Create a Tournament Online”!
Of course, you have to be registered with the system and Tournament Director status rights. That topic may just be a future tutorial!
Hope this first one was informative. Look for future tutorials covering scoring, editing, and creating leagues!
Are you old enough to remember the weekly radio football segment called “Leonard’s Losers“? Yes, it was before cell phones, even before the internet. It was during a time you had to adjust the dial on the radio to get better reception and less static. In short, a generation of Southern Football fans grew up listening to Leonard’s weekly prognostications of who would lose in college football. Leonard’s descriptive verbalization of teams and how they would meet their match was a mainstay of my college years and brings wonderful memories still today.
I have found that the “You Pick’em” league system incorporated within this site recently has the ability to be tweaked slightly so users only pick the loser. I believe we’ll change the format of this contest to honor this great radio show of yesteryear. Stay tuned!
It was recently brought to my attention user’s were having difficulties in completing their registration and log in function.
First, my apologizes to those of you experiencing this issue. In an effort to restrict spammer’s and robot’s registering with the site, I had installed some widgets in the system that eliminated a high percentage of these irritating little bastards from accomplishing their goal of infiltrating the site. Dang, I’ll be dang if it worked so well that hardly anyone was registering. As they say … one step forward, two steps back. It’s an ongoing issue so if you’re trying to register and not able to log in, slap an email to me and I’ll make it happen for you.
Second, we’ve got alot going on via the hope page. There are actually two (2) different registrations. One is for the site. It’s a WordPress log in that allows access to hidden features and the “Pick’em” program. This is the challenging one discussed above.
The other registration if the “Player Registration” green button on the home page. This one is for users that want to edit their profiles, track their scores, and direct tournaments via the database. It’s fairly intuitive and I’m not aware of any issues with it.
Good luck and let me know if you have any issues.
