Peryton Women's Disc Golf Club
Peryton was founded in 2022 to help meet the need of the growing population of female and new disc golfers who were looking for more opportunities to participate with the community. We are a club of women that host a variety of tournaments and leagues that focus on fun and fair ways to play. We also work with local and regional TD's to better meet the needs of female disc golfers and make them welcome in our amazing community.
I (Laura M.) started playing in 2021 and fell in love with the game. I learned to play disc golf by playing tournaments. But I found myself so focused on my very very bad first ratings that I wasn't enjoying it. So I started a casual league and found many other new players who wanted opportunities to just throw frisbees not count scores. I became a TD in 2022 and pushed to create tournaments with females as a central focus or host events that were at a skill level that Pros and new players could have fun and compete. Soon other TD's were asking for my opinions on events! My first event: Lovers at Lapping (coed valentines day event) sold out and I was amazed to be so supported by my peers. I hope to continue to grow the club and involve more and more women.
We will have yearly the following events:
Valentines Day Coed
Ladies at Lapping
Take Back the Night
Why the name Pertyon? Honestly....I love deer and I'm a huge nerd. So a winged mythological deer was clearly going to be my inspiration!
