EDGA Presents: #RespectHerGame

This year, the Edmonton Disc Golf Association is proud to establish our first ever Women’s League, starting April 14th, 2021.

EDGA president Tim Plamondon and avid disc golfer and #RespectHerGame advocate Jo Henderson, got together recently to play a casual round and discuss women in disc golf, EDGA’s new Women’s League and the #RespectHerGame movement.

COVID-19 Update (2020-05-22)

Hello all,

While our 2020 season remains on hold, there is some good news: Edmonton has re-opened its disc golf courses. The city has issued a list of requirements and guidelines to help keep us, and our loved ones, safe. Please follow these as, if the city sees unsafe behavior, it is possible they could close the courses again.


https://www.edmonton.ca/programs_services/emergency_preparedness/covid-19.aspx

In all re-opened spaces, users must follow public health guidelines including:

  • Maintaining 2 metre physical distance
  • Gathering in groups of 50 people or fewer
  • Only sharing common equipment with members of the same family or cohort
  • Staying home if you feel sick
  • Bringing your own hand sanitizer
  • Washing and sanitizing your hands before and after using these areas

Some new guidelines will be in place:

  • Users should use local playgrounds in their neighbourhoods and sanitize their hands before and after use.
  • Equipment should only be shared by members of the same household or their family cohort. (Editor’s note: it’s best not to touch
    others’ discs, even when clearing the basket.)

COVID-19

Hello all,

The 2020 EDGA season is on hold for now. We’re hoping to run some events late summer or early fall and we’ll have more details as the situation evolves.

Both Edmonton courses are closed temporarily as per the City of Edmonton’s order and we don’t have a projected date for reopening. EDGA recommends that people do not play.

2019 memberships have been extended and are valid through 2020.

Stay healthy. We hope to see you on the course as soon as it’s safe to do so.


City announces additional sport fields and court closures

April 27, 2020

Effective immediately, tennis courts, pickleball courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, disc golf and premier sports fields are closed. This is to ensure the health and safety of Edmontonians and to meet provincial orders around physical distancing. Park spaces like baseball diamonds and soccer fields will be open to the public for casual use only starting May 1, weather permitting.

Users of baseball and soccer amenities must continue to adhere to two metre physical distancing rules, ensure gatherings are kept to 15 people or fewer, and avoid or limit touching commonly touched surfaces like sporting equipment or stationary field objects. We understand the benefits of outdoor activity, and we want to help keep everyone safe. Please keep your physical distance and interact safely with others when outdoors.

Petition for a new course

We’ve started a petition for a new course and would appreciate your help. Disc golf is growing in Edmonton because it’s a fun, healthy, and inexpensive activity. Rundle Park, the only 18 basket course in Edmonton, is overcrowded due to its popularity. We want to address this by working with the City of Edmonton and surrounding municipalities to construct additional courses.

If you’d like to see more course, please sign.
