The Cascade Challenge presented by GRIPeq is here! This new DGPT Silver Event will take place at Shelton Springs, a beautiful Pacific North West disc golf course, 90 miles away from Seattle in Shelton, WA.
This course has a few open holes, but most of it winds through a dense evergreen forest. The trees create tight lines for players to navigate, and hitting gaps in the foliage off the tee will be at a premium this weekend. The Mason County Disc Golf Club, which manages the course and is working closely with the local event team to support the event, has been a critical part of ensuring that the event was able to run at Shelton Springs this season.
Shelton Springs, home to three different course layouts, has been adjusted to create a new competition layout for the Cascade Challenge. With both the MPO and FPO tracks coming in on the shorter side relative to other courses on tour (8,219 ft for MPO and 7,285 ft for FPO), we will likely see accuracy and putting become the defining metrics for success at Shelton Springs. Even with a slightly shorter layout than is typical on Tour these days, the course will still challenge players with plenty of two shot holes. Both fields will contend with seven par fours and that will demand strategic placement off the tee. The added challenge of mandatory flight paths on holes 2, 6, 8, and 10 will require players to carefully consider their shot selection and execution. Tune in to see which players are able to navigate this new course (on Tour) successfully and come out on top on Sunday!
A Look Ahead to This Weekend’s Field

There are plenty of big names headed into this weekend’s tournament with Eagle McMahon (fresh off his first 2023 DGPT win at the Beaver State Fling), Gannon Buhr, and Ricky Wysocki sitting atop the registration list in MPO.
On the FPO side, Holyn Handley is your highest rated competitor with Ella Hansen and recent first time Elite Event winner Kat Mertsch just behind her.
