Do you have what it takes to Beat the Brewers? Gather your team of 4 and join the Common Roots brew crew in our first ever Disc Golf Challenge! Join us for a fun day of friendly competition, tasty beer and help support the Common Roots Foundation – the charitable arm of Common Roots Brewing Company.
There will be two rounds, one for beginners/families and one for intermediate/advanced players. While we encourage you to sign up as a four-person team ($100), you may also register as an individual ($30). Registration includes entrance to the event, a beer token (or other refreshment), a raffle ticket, and a t-shirt if you register before September 29th. Your entry fee supports the Common Roots Foundation, which promotes community wellness, environmental stewardship and crisis relief.
The team from each round that beats the Common Roots Brewers by the largest margin will win that round’s grand prize (and serious bragging rights!). Challenge yourself with the Ring of Fire, Longest Drive, and Closest to the Pin competitions for your chance to win Common Roots swag and other gifts. After your round – enjoy food, beer and time with the CRBC brew crew while you wait for raffle drawings and awards.
We look forward to seeing you on the course!
