3 Pro Men spots open.

I've done a limited expansion to help increase the Pro payouts and because they *generally* play faster.  At least don't lose discs as quickly.   ;)

Pars and OB Rules

When I was saying 13,000' I was estimating. It's actually only 9,951' I was way off, sorry. I'm actually surprised it is that short.

These rules will not be repeated, because they apply at all times.
In all situations, on or over road is OB. Road is defined as concrete or asphalt. Gravel is safe.
In all situations, in Bales Lake is OB.

1- 803', Par 5. Original #1 long. On or beyond sidewalk right is OB.
2- 420', Par 3. Executive #2 tee to Exec #3 basket
3- 279', Par 3. Executive #4 (Downhill towards Bales Lake shot)
4- 334', Par 3. Executive tee #5 to Executive pin #6
5- 207', Par 3. Executive #7
6- 275', Par 3. Executive #8
7- 467', Par 3. Executive #9
8- 235', Par 3. Executive #1
9- 370', Par 3. From Fishing dock on Bales Lake to short #3 pin. 122' to cross the water. 'Safe' is defined as on or over sidewalk. Sidewalk is safe. Must be touching sidewalk or breaking vertical plane. If in plants along shore and not breaking the vertical plane as defined by sidewalk, you are out. If OB on tee shot, go to drop zone.
10- 437', Par 4. From "inner" pad on #4 to "new" long 4 down into the woods.
11- 222', Par 3. #5 to shortest pin
12- 534', Par 4, #6 pad to long pin
13- 701', Par 4, #7 pad to new medium pin past culvert next to road.
14- 517', Par 4, #8 pad to medium pin
15- 365', Par 3. #9 pad to "inner short" pin
16- 271', Par 3. From "inner pad #10" to medium #9 pin
17- 219', Par 3. From "inner pad #13" to long #11 pin
18- 416', Par 3. From "inner pad" #14 to Inner pin #14
19- 436', Par 3, From "inner pad" #15 to Inner pin #15
20- 388', Par 3, From #14 pad to long right next to tree line.
21- 404'. Par 3, From #15 pad to long #15 pin
22- 442', Par 3, From #16 pad to long #16 pin. Inside fence is OB.
23- 520', Par 4, From #17 pad to medium 17
24- 689', Par 4, From #18 pad to left pin in trees.

Par 80, 9951'

Thank you to Doug Keehler for moving pins for me, clearing downed branches and collecting garbage. Ladies and gents, this man rocks it.

Thank you to Nova 大・平 Politte #74995 for cleaning up my map.

Thanks to Jack Lowe for the help in describing the holes.

It's a really nice map though

Using the tournament map:

#4 - it may be leaning somewhat but from my visit 11/3 it didn't seem to be bad enough that I noticed.  I think they all lean to various degrees.
#10 is the newish long, down into the woods, 60-75' longer then the normal pin.
#11 is actually the short pin.  It's fine.
#12 is actually set long, it's fine.  We can leave it there.
#13 - I don't know what was used in '09.  It's near the road, just pass the culvert.
#16 - Not the super long pin, the medium long pin.  Where it is now there is a path directly to the next tee box.
#20 - New pin that is about as long as the one by the road, but it is actually closer to the trees.  Not the short one by the trees.
#22 - It is past the tree, up the hill.
#23 - I intended this to be the really long one, but it's not.  It's fine.
#24 - is the pin that is in the trees on top of the hill to the left.  Never played this pin before.

As of now, there are 19 spots left.

I don't care for Mach X's myself.  Too many chains.  It pushes soft putts out.

I do think the Innova DISCatcher is a nice middle ground.

Thanks Cade

This is a club sanctioned event.  Please put in rotation on front page.  Thank you.

Will an admin please pin this thread as it's a KCFDC endorsed event.  Thank you.

First 100 players to register will receive a free Innova DX Colt courtesy of Innova.
All amateurs will receive a tournament disc.

Recreational and Juniors are trophy only.
Advanced and Intermediate divisions will have additional merchandise payout based on performance.
Pro divisions will have cash payouts.

Check in at shelter near normal hole 11 Long.
Time: 8:45 - 9:30

Facebook event page where information is updated first and more regularly:

Tournament is half full. 

Thanks to the Raymore's Recreation Park course designer Eric Eastwood, we have $100 added cash to the pro purse.

Registration link:

I created two different pools.

Long pads:
All Pro all divisions
All Advanced all divisions
Intermediate men
Recreational men
Junior 18 & under men

Short pads:
Intermediate women
Recreational women
Junior 18 & under women
Junior 12 & under girls
Novice men
Junior 12 & under boys

Yes, a Novice men division was added which is not real common. If you signed up for Rec and want to move to Novice, let me know. Novice is 850 and under, but if you are on the border, you probably should play Rec.



While there is construction at the park, we will be able to utilize 17 of the original holes and have a temporary hole 5 just north of normal hole 5.

So far this year, 4 of the 6 Maverick Disc Golf 2017 Series Driven by Innova have sold out.

I don't have Facebook.

I understand.

The tee signs are posted here:

I've coordinated with The Clinton Store for lunch on Saturday.

For $9.99 (+tax probably) you'll get a nice pulled pork sandwich, chips, coleslaw and a can of pop.

They will also have hamburgers and other options. I think subs too.

You literally drive right by this place on the way to the course. The next closest location is McDonald's 6th St Lawrence which is 25 minutes one way. I HIGHLY recommend you plan on The Clinton Store or bring your own lunch.

Also - they do sell most big brand beer, ice cream bars, etc that you would find in a small town / campground store.

They also have a dinner in the evening if you want something after the tournament. Reviews say it's pretty good. I believe it changes every weekend from steak, chicken fried steak, pork ribeye, salmon, etc.
