Millennium Challenge Information
Challenge Each Other and Challenge Your Game
This page basically describes what a Millennium Challenge is all about. You can read up on it here and/or go to our Official Millennium Challenge Site to find the same info, start an event or sign up for a particular event.
Running a Millennium Challenge Event is a great way to earn cash for your club or fundraise for your favorite charity. We would love to help support your club or organization.
A Millennium Challenge is a customizable disc golf event designed to be a fun experience while introducing Millennium Golf Discs to players. The “challenge” is not only competition among players, but against the performance of discs currently in each golfer's bag. It's also a great fundraiser for your club or other cause. The intended audience is leagues and clubs, recreational and competitive players. Everyone can win because Millennium provides prizes to be awarded by division. The values of prizes depend on the total number of participants per division. Divisions for Amateurs, Intermediates and Women are suggested, but can vary.
Players choose any two discs from Millennium’s full line of products. Players compete using only these two discs + their own putter which must be labeled as a putter or putt and approach disc.
Players choose any three discs from Millennium’s full line of products. Players compete using only these three discs.
A Millennium Challenge can be played in one or two rounds of any format:
- deuce or die
- three headed monster
- or any combo
It’s up to the Tournament Director to select and execute the format of play that best fits the interests of the group. Regardless of the format, golfers must use only the Millennium golf discs received in the player package (plus own putter for 2-disc challenge).
For an entry free of $25 - $35, a player selects his/her own discs as a player pack (details below). Of each entry fee, $5-7 goes to the TD to be used as he/she sees fit (lunch, club money, charity, etc.). The rest goes to Millennium to cover cost of player packs and prizes. The player packs will be assembled and sent to the TD in advance of the tourney.
If the TD wants to do additional fundraising, we suggest selling mulligans and raffle tickets for donated items and/or merchandise purchased by the TD at wholesale rates.
The total number of players determines the amount allotted for prizes. Trophies go to 1st place winners of each division and prizes cover the number of places deemed relevant to the TD.
Millennium will provide on consignment, an additional 50 discs to be available that day and from which walk-up participants can select their player pack. These discs can also be sold at retail value during and after the tournament with proceeds going to the TD. Discs remaining after the event may be kept to sell or returned to Millennium within 14 days. Millennium will send a bill to the TD for the discs sold. Millennium will also send a check to the TD for his/her share of the entry fees.
Millennium will also provide a trophy per division and prizes in the form of vouchers to be redeemed for merchandise on the Millennium website, www.golfdisc.com.
TD is allowed free entry into the tournament.
