- Ice Bowl
Placing a focus on fun and giving rather than competition, players of all abilities- even those who have never played disc golf- are encouraged to attend. Everyone that participates in the event is encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation as a part of their entry fee. At the inaugural event in 2000, the club brought in only $25. In 2020, over 50 participants collectively raised a record $1,825 for our community. The Ice Bowl occurs regardless of weather conditions, hence the event’s motto; “No wimps, no whiners.”
- Red, White & Blue Challenge
3 times around Denison Pond, playing the 6 water holes, once each from the red tees, white tees, and blue tees. Played on the 4th of July every year.
- Harley Miller Memorial
Harley Miller was a founding member of our league, who believed that disc golf is 80% skill and 20% luck, and felt that the game could be played just as well with a single disc as with a full bag. In honor of his contributions to our club, the Corning 20%ers hold a fundraising tournament each year where competitors play two rounds of 12-hole disc golf using only one disc.
The 2020 Harley Miller Open will be held on Sunday, August 9th at 10:00 a.m. at Denison Park in Corning, NY. While there is no registration fee, a suggested donation of $20 is appreciated. All proceeds from this tournament are donated to the Crystal City Parks Foundation to improve Denison Park for all. Last year, league participants raised over $2000 for the Parks Foundation.
- Tag Finale
The 20%ers use bag tags as a way to foster friendly competition between members, raise funds for the park, and as a yearly census of active league members. The tag finale is the final competition for the yearly bag tags. Due to health concerns, the tag finale will not occur in 2020.
- Haunted Waters
Haunted Waters returns in 2020 to celebrate the 26th anniversary of disc golf in Denison Park. Come and join us October 31st!
