DGCR’s Best Courses 2017 & 2018



Join us for the annual showdown of the World's top up-and-coming amateur doubles teams! The PDGA Amateur World Doubles Championships (previously known as the PDGA National Doubles) was created by John Houck in 1991, and this year it takes an unprecedented leap forward with the addition of two new championship courses at the Trey Texas Ranch. Franklin County now has four premier HouckDesign courses -- Selah Lakeside, Selah Creekside, Trey-Deuce, and Texas Twist -- and we'll be using all four for this event.

For non-players, it's a great chance to see what disc golf is all about; you can watch the players in action, get tips from Pros, and test your hand at our special putting games.

This event is a PDGA True Amateur Major. There is a very generous player package from Infinite Discs, HouckDesign, Franklin County & Mt. Vernon and includes multiple meals, and trophies for the top players in each division.


Selah Ranch is one of the most beautiful and well-known destinations in the history of disc golf. In 2012 the Lakeside and Creekside courses were voted the top two courses in the world, based on reviews by players at dgcoursereview.com And in 2018 they continued their reign in the top ten after being ranked #1 & #2 for 5 years. Selah Ranch is about 8 miles north of Mt. Vernon (it's technically in Talco, TX).

The Trey Texas Ranch is the home of Texas' two latest and greatest championship disc golf courses. The Trey-Deuce and Texas Twist courses, with winding creeks and menacing ponds, offer some of the most fun and challenging holes players will ever encounter. The down home Texas Ranch atmosphere includes the Trey-Deuce Domino Saloon, well known to the area's top 42 players. Trey Texas is about 8 miles south of Mt. Vernon (it's technically in Purly, Texas).


Come and enjoy this world championship tournament and watch disc golf at two of the world's best disc golf facilities. We know you will be impressed when you see how far these discs are thrown.

Practice: From Monday, April 8th to Thursday, April 11th, registered players will be able to practice at Selah Ranch and Trey Texas for a special reduced greens fee of $10 per day at each location. Greens fees for tournament weekend (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday April 12th-14th) are included in registration. Camping is available for $10 per person per night both during the event and prior to the event if you want to come early to practice. See Lodging Details below. See Lodging Details below.

Format: Everyone will play two rounds of Best Throw, one round of Best Score, and one round of Alternate Throw. Teams that make the finals will play Best Throw, Best Score, and Worst Throw.

Best Throw, also known as "Scramble," is the most common format for doubles in disc golf. Players always throw from the same lie, picking the shot they prefer each time.

Best Score, is similar to singles. Both players play their own disc and take the better score on each hole.

In Alternate Throw, players take turns throwing throughout the course. If one player makes the putt, the other player drives on the next hole.

In Worst Throw, players always throw from the same lie and take the worse shot every time. Both players must make their putts.
