Muqueam Updates

  • THE TOURNAMENT START TIME HAS BEEN MOVED TO 8:30 AM to ensure maximization of daylight. Check-in will start around 7:20 AM, and the players meeting will begin at 8:00 AM.
  • THE FIELD SIZE WILL REMAIN FIRM AT 72 PLAYERS, again due to daylight. If any registered players withdraw before registration officially closes on Thursday, David Cowley will contact waitlisted players in the order they registered. Although unlikely, if there are any no-shows on tournament day, spots will be given to any waitlisted players at the course in the order they registered.
  • The course map has been posted. In addition, each hole will have an Illustrator created hole description sign on the course with visuals and information on recommended routes and potential hazards.
  • Gumboots or equivalent are highly recommended. The course is wet, and there is casual water in some areas. The forecast for Saturday is “light rain”, so we should all collectively pray for sun.
  • Depending on the length of the first round, the lunch break could be short, so packing a lunch is recommended. I will be providing water and snacks. If you feel there is time to grab food at lunch, there is an IGA on 41st and Dunbar, which is about 1.6 km away from the course. I leave that decision to you.
  • There is technically a road closure for water-main repair on Dunbar, between 50th Avenue and 51st Avenue, and 51st Avenue, between Dunbar and the course entrance, but you can still get to the course via this route, as construction is limited to weekdays. The road is bumpy and single file, so drive with caution. Salish Drive provides an alternate route to get to the course. Check on Google Maps.
  • You can look forward to some great prizes and added cash.

Duck Golf #5: The Van City United Open

DuckGolfFlyer

UPDATED: There will be no day of event registration. Register on-line by Thursday, December 4th to play.

Registration is now open for Duck Golf #5: The Van City United Open at Musqueam Golf Course on Saturday, December 6. You can register at The Disc Cellar website by following the link on the right side of this page. All event information is available there as well. Of note, the first round of this tournament will start at 9:00 AM due to limited daylight, player meeting at 8:40.

All divisions also have an additional $15.00 greens fee attached to them, which goes directly to Musqueam Golf Course. This is a substantial reduction from the greens fees typically charged for their corporate ball golf events, and the tournament will enjoy exclusive use of the course and hall as a result. 

Register now to take advantage of a great tournament and course. We hope to see you there!

Duck Golf #3 & #4

Registration is currently open for both Langley (Duck Golf #3) and Nanaimo (Duck Golf #4).

Langley is currently full with a waitlist of 5 players. They have already increased capacity from 72 (4/pad) to 90 (5/pad). In order to account for the longer rounds that larger groups causes, the player’s meeting will be at 8:30am and the first round will start at 9:00am. There will be no day of registration. As per the tournament policy, full refunds will be processed until the close of registration, after that time it’s at the TD’s discretion. Keep in mind that if you drop out of the event at this time, there is someone waiting in line to take your spot.

If you want to get on the waitlist for Langley, go through the regular registration process (including payment) and you will be added to the waitlist. If you do not get in the event, you will receive a full refund of your payment.

Nanaimo is a full month away, but registration is now open for it as well. There are handy countdown timers in the sidebar (scroll down on mobile) for when registration closes, and direct links to event details, registration and the current list of registered players.
