2021 DDO Spectator Badge

What does a Spectator badge allow?

A total of 1,500 Spectator badges will be available for purchase for each day of the National Tour Event; Wednesday (4/28), Thursday (4/29), Friday (4/30), and Saturday (5/1). The badges will cost $20.00. Spectators can purchase the badges during the next two weeks between 2PM today (4/9) and 8PM on Friday (4/23) here. After the 23rd, badges (if still available) can be purchased on-site the day of at the venue, at the Dynamic Discs Retail Store (912 Commercial Street), or at the old Distribution Center (3601 W. 6th Ave) during player check-in and player pack pick-up on Tuesday (4/27 only). Once 1,500 badges are purchased, they will be sold out. The badges are transferable. If someone buys a badge and cannot use it, they can give it to someone else.

A limited run (300) of spectator discs will be available at the course each day during the NT for spectators to purchase.

All proceeds from Spectator Badge sales (minus a few administrative costs) will go directly into the NT Payout for the top MPO and FPO finishers.

Bearers of a spectator badge must follow these rules:

  1. Spectators must wear a mask the entire time they are spectating. The only exception to this rule is if a spectator is eating or drinking.
  2. Spectators must maintain appropriate social distancing from any other spectators on the course (6 feet).
  3. Spectators must remain at least 50 feet away from all competitors, caddies, and media members.
  4. Spectators must remain at least 100 feet from all tee boxes and baskets.
  5. Spectators must behave professionally, not disrupting the regular play of disc golf.
  6. Failure to comply with any of these rules will lead to immediate dismissal from the course and the forfeiture of a spectator’s badge.
