Beaver State Fling 2012: Oregon's Biggest and Baddest disc golf Tournament

Beaver State Fling 2012: Oregon's Biggest and Baddest disc golf Tournament

Put one more BSF in the bank for the Next Adventure Flight Crew! The 4TH stop of the PDGA national tour elites series has came and gone...in short, It's kind of a big deal for us golfers here in Oregon. Now in its 8TH year the Beaver has become the areas Premier event. Drawing nearly 300 professional and amateur golfers to compete for big cash prizes, and the glory of winning it all along the winding banks of the Clackamas river at Milo McIver state park.beaver state fling genius hole

This is a map of how near and far players traveled to come battle it out. As you can see this isn't just and Oregon thing. This event draws golfers from all over the country including the worlds top professionals. Registration is now done with a lottery system because of the high demand from players who want to get in. The secret is out, this is the high caliber tournament of the northwest.

Big Thank You to Kel Carver for this awesome map and Jason Abell for letting me use some of his photos. Also all the other volunteers who donated their time to help make the BSF run so smoothly. Especially the tournament directors Jeff Hagerty and Jeff Mittle.

If you disc golf and have never played Milo McIver's Riverbend park, Call into work and take a sick day then proceed straight there. It's amazing! Milo has everything it needs to be a challenging and beautiful golf course. Normally there is a 27 hole layout that plays long with rolling grass fairways, big fir trees, and a scenic nature filled backdrop. Bring some water and snacks because it's gonna be a long walk. Come BSF time the course adds nine more baskets for 36 holes that are split into a east and west 18 hole course. This is one of the many reason that make the beaver such a awesome event. If you missed the BSF but want to play the special 36 hole layout. Be on the lookout for the Hab/Rec Tournament that comes every October.


I look forward to this event every year for alot of different reason. It's a fun challenging course to play, I get see some great friends and nerd out on disc golf all weekend, working for Next Adventure it's cool to see them step up and throw down a lot of support from providing lunch to awesome prizes to a sport I love to play, But mostly its coming out to watch the top disc golfers in the world shred Milo to pieces. Its amazing!

After the Flight Crew wrapped for the weekend it was time to watch the lead card for their 4TH and final round.
