Yes, I think you have to be a spectator (in person) to sign up for one).

Verify these details before planning your trip, but....

In addition to Spectator Appreciation Day (or whatever it's called), described above....

USDGC Doubles is the weekend before, Friday at Winthrop, Saturday (or Sat. & Sun.) at Canaan.

Which means the week before that, as they're setting up the course, you can probably play. I know I did that, a couple of years ago, playing on a weekday when all the ropes had been put out.

You might be able to play that weekend (28th-29th), while the doubles are at Canaan, assuming the Pros haven't already shown up and have the course reserved for practice.

The Winthrop clubhouse always has some limited runs, special runs and usually some hard-to-find stuff.
I've seen some Legacy, Millennium, Discmania and Hyzerbomb discs in the clubhouse, but you won't find Discraft or Trilogy, etc.
How about Infinite line? those are made by Innova as well. Legacy? those are not made by Innova at least to my knowlage so that is cool.

When you played on the weekday you mentioned was it crowded? I don't know if I can make the trip this year, but for future planning I'd love to play the tournament set-up without being "in the way". Thanks for the answers!...sounds like it's do-able, but to make sure and verify before making the trip.

No, as I recall my group had the run of the place ourselves. I can't remember, but we may have gone in the morning, which would increase our odds.

In one of these threads, one of the USDGC workers posted that the course is almost set up now. Double-check that; you might have an even earlier and easier opportunity.

I'm really looking forward to this event. I already received my VIP pass. I know that a few days ago I made a post because I was upset about the media policy but that was petty of me. This year's usdgc will be amazing and Innova deserves our support.

I went out to Winthrop Gold yesterday and took some pictures of the new holes.

USDGC with a release about media coverage.

Live will be PPV.

Post-production will be SpinTV (lead) and Jomez (chase). So much for Jomez not being invited and a need to boycott. ―\_(ツ)_/―

I'm not paying for live coverage. I'll wait for the post-production or just not see it. It's not worth paying for.
