Capital Classic 2014

CF10 BaSKET

Since its first year in 2002, the Capital Classic has been the ODGC’s most prominent annual event. It has found homes at Jacques Cartier Park Disc Golf Course, Camp Fortune Disc Golf Course, and in 2008, they played at both!

Sanctioned as a C-Tier event, and an ODSA Provincial Disc Golf Gold Series Event, it is Ottawa’s only Professional Disc Golf Association tournament and attracts a fair amount of traveling players looking for a challenging course. The 2005 Capital Classic had an Ottawa record of 89 participants from all over North America!

TDed again this year by Mark Atos, the Classic will be battled on the Hill (CF DGC), July 26th and 27th. Camp Fortune DGC was installed on the Camp Fortune ski hill in 2005 and has undergone many layout changes since its inception. It is Ottawa’s most impressive course, with rough terrain, extreme elevations and tough pin placements. This is no walk in the park!

For FAQs and on-line banter you can check out the conversation in the ODGC Forums.
