  • The Emerald Valley Open (TEVO) Moved from June 13/14 to June 27/28

    The Emerald Valley Open is scheduled for June 27/28th at Alton Baker Park, Downtown Eugene.

    A change of venue was in order to play at this unbelievable park in Downtown Eugene. A flyer for the event is coming soon as well as registration guidelines. Thanks for your patience while developing this new event.

    Please contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to bringing this premier event to the Willamette Valley. Thanks

      Make that 2 of us Ben. I have a feeling that there will be a big line behind us. Each will help make it a wonderful event for us locally, and all of you throughout our region!!!!

          NW series sounds like a good plan. My only hope is that I can make enough of the events.

          Thanks Drew for getting this spear headed!

                  I believe this event has been moved to June 27 -28, BUT Andrew would have to verify that.

                  I also hear of a SWEET location...But again, I'll let Andrew verify that.

                      Yes there is a change to The Emerald Valley Open. We are moving it back to the weekend of June 27/28th. It will now also be played at Alton Baker Park in downtown Eugene. Permits have been obtained for the fields on the east side of the parking lot. This portion of land also contains the Pre Trail, Cuthbert Ampitheatre and a Tree Memorial. I recently went and walked the whole course with a City of Eugene Park official to get clear on the specifics of the event. Great strides are being taken to incoorporate the course into the park without impacting the other park users. The City is willing to let us play on very prime pieces of land. It is my feeling that playing in these high traffic areas is not in the best interests of all involved. I believe by running a quality event can achieve a permanent course here soon. It must serve to show the community what Disc Golf is really about. This is a great opportunity to spotlight Disc Golf in the Eugene/Springfield area. I feel we are all up to the challenge. More information will be coming soon on registration etc. Thanks

                        I'm confused by the above. Can you clarify which are the prime pieces of land, which are the high traffic areas not in the best interests to play in, and which are the areas we can try to achieve a permanent course?

                        Can you also move the tournament to a weekend I am not moving into my new house? Just kidding, good work!

                          Land around the ponds, following the Pre Trail. All throughout the most highly used portions of the east end (the land between the Mill Race, Parking Lot, Cuthbert, and Day Island Rd. Mapquest it) These areas are going to be very difficult to play a tournament let alone a permanent course. I am hoping to layout a course that could easily translate into a future course for the region. I would be more than happy to meet a group out there to show everyone around. I went out and laid down flags today...There will be a map soon when I finalize everything.

                            Thanks Andrew. I am familiar with that part of the park, I was just confused by the idea of a course where it wouldn't be in our best interests to have one because of the high use. I see what you mean now - it needs to be laid out correctly- and if we have a successful tournament that will help show that it can work.
