Last Sunday, six golfers representing the Orrington DGC drove down to Scarborough to play in the first Team Challenge. This once-a-month tournament will take place at a different course each time, and will be played in a doubles format.
Pleasant Hill disc golf course hosted the first in this Team Challenge series. Each team brought 6 players to create their own 3 doubles teams. Teams could be shuffled around after the first round if they wanted.
Results are below, however I don’t know which courses each of the teams were from in most cases. They created team names, but what course they were from was not posted with the results. The team strokes total is listed after the team name.
1st: Grizzlies 280 $252
2nd: Acker's Red 296 $84
T3rd: D.R. Disc Golf 300
T3rd: Pleasant Hill 1 300

The D.R. Disc golf team consisted of: Ryan Enman, Joe Baker, Matt Enman, Noah Fecteau, Brian Skirman and Matt Kinney. There will be alternates playing at different tournaments depending on golfer availability.
The next event will be held Sunday, December 13 at the Orrington DGC, with a 9am start. Orrington’s Sunday Doubles league will still be held with a 10am tee off time on that day.
