Mount Baker Challenge Sponsored by Discmania!

April 6, 2024, Bellis Fairways in Bellingham, Washington, played host to a spectacle of athleticism, camaraderie, and sheer passion for disc golf. This was no ordinary tournament—this was The Mount Baker Challenge, proudly presented by Dip's Discs and sponsored by the illustrious Discmania. Together, these two groups joined forces to create an event that would leave an indelible mark on this years event schedule!

At Dip's Discs, our commitment goes beyond simply providing top-notch discs and gear. We're dedicated to fostering a thriving disc golf culture, one that promotes inclusivity, health, and happiness. The Mount Baker Challenge epitomized this ethos, offering players of all levels a platform to showcase their skills, forge new friendships, and bask in the beauty of the game.

Despite the occasional challenge posed by Mother Nature—a gentle rain that only served to heighten the sense of adventure—the atmosphere crackled with excitement and anticipation. Behind the scenes, our esteemed tournament directors—Eric Dipzinski, Lucas Latta, and Jason Einfeld—worked tirelessly to ensure that every aspect of the event ran smoothly. Their expertise, coupled with their unwavering passion for disc golf, ensured that The Mount Baker Challenge surpassed all expectations.

The course at Bellis Fairways, though relatively new, proved to be a worthy adversary, testing players' mettle with its cunning layout and unpredictable terrain. From muddy fairways to tight tree-lined corridors, every hole presented a unique challenge, keeping players on their toes and spectators on the edge of their seats.

Of course, none of this would have been possible without the generous support of our sponsors, Discmania. As one of the most respected names in the disc golf industry, Discmania's commitment to excellence and innovation is second to none. Their sponsorship of The Mount Baker Challenge not only elevated the prestige of the event but also underscored their unwavering dedication to the growth and development of the sport.
