Bell's will be the presenting sponsor of the 2015 PDGA Amateur World Championships

We are proud to announce that we will be the presenting sponsor of the 2015 PDGA Amateur World Championships, July 18th-25th, right here in southwest Michigan.  

Players will compete for 17 different titles making this the second time the disc golf World Championships will be coming to the area.  

In 2008, Bell’s was the presenting sponsor for the combined Pro and Amateur World Championships that brought nearly 900 competitors from 9 different countries to Kalamazoo and Battle Creek for the week long tournament. It was the second largest disc golf event in history.  

The 2015 World Championships are expected to bring about 700 players and their families to Kalamazoo.

Michigan is one of the leading states in the sport of disc golf with well over 200 courses across the state including some of the highest rated courses among disc golf players. There have been several World Champion titles that have gone to Michigan players and next year’s tournament will be the 6th time the disc golf World Championships will have been played in Michigan.

Michigan is also home to one of the leading disc manufacturers, Discraft Inc.  

Bell’s Brewery has been a long time supporter of disc golf, starting with our support in building the first disc golf course in the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek area at Cold Brook County Park more 20 years ago.  

Bell’s has continued to support disc golf throughout the years by supporting K’Aces Disc Golf, a Kalamazoo/Battle Creek disc golf club that is celebrating its 20th season this year. With the support of Bell’s, K’Aces Disc Golf runs weekly leagues year round and plays host to 7 PDGA tournaments during the year.
