Contestants at the 2008 Echo Valley BIDCurrently, DDG runs an annual tournament series called the “Best in Dayton” series (or BID series) which consists of several tournaments run by DDG at local area courses. The BID series schedule for the year may include several events at any of our local or surrounding disc golf courses, and/or some temporary courses set up just for us, and sometime even multi-club courses in conjunction with other local clubs. Events are competitive and designed to help players of all skill levels play against disc golfers within their divisions.

Normally, divisional structures for the BID series are as follows:

Open (Pro players)
Open Masters (Pro’s at 40 years of age or above)
Advanced AM I (Amateurs below the pro level)
Advanced Masters (Amateurs at 40 years of age or above)
Intermediate AM II (Amateurs below the Advanced level)
Recreational AM III (Amateurs below the Intermediate level)
Women (Female competitors)
Juniors ( Competitive or casual players under the age of 18)

Competitors over the age of 40 are not required to play in a Masters division, and competitors under the age of 18 are not required to play in the Juniors division.
