DGPT Announces New Location for 2022 Tour Championship
September 8th, 2022: The first ever DGPT playoffs are set to start next week with Discraft’s Green Mountain Championship. With playoff events awarding 125% of normal Elite Series tour points, players will be looking to cement their spot in the 2022 Tour Championship. More details about how players will qualify for playoff events and the Tour Championship can be found in our recent announcement on the topic.
While the Tour Championship has been held at Hornet’s Nest in Charlotte, NC, for the past three years, the culminating event to the 2022 season will be held at another Charlotte course, Nevin Park. Just a few minutes down the road from Hornet’s Nest, Nevin will offer the same kind of Elite level wooded golf that fans have grown to expect and love at the Tour Championship.
Earlier this season, it became apparent that due to a large infrastructure project at Hornet’s Nest park, the course may not be able to host the 2022 Championship.

Nevin has been a huge asset to the Charlotte disc golf community for the past decade with recent use as the most prominent Charlotte-area A-tier, the Carolina Clash. The course was also played in the 2012 combined PDGA World Championships and the 2018 Amateur World Championships. The course, often described as a sister to Hornet’s Nest with its heavily wooded lines, will undergo some redesign to offer the best player and spectator experiences. “The addition of 6 new tees, significant fairway clearing and development, as well as some new hole changes are underway, led by Mark Huether of the Charlotte Disc Golf Club” said Spring. “We’re excited about these upgrades to an already fantastic course. Nevin will provide a wooded challenge for the best players in the world in much the same manner that Hornet’s Nest has the past 3 years.”
Initial on-site signal testing has returned positive results and the event will see…
