General Banter / Legacy or Young???
« on: October 28, 2014, 08:21:23 am »
I might have time to play one KC course this Saturday morning and I've not played either Young or Legacy.  Which one is preferred by the locals?  We'll be staying in Independence so these are the closest two to us. 


The 9th Annual Four States Open will be a PDGA A/B Tier event held on September 27th & 28th in Joplin at McClelland Park & Neosho at Morse Park North with our usual Friday Field Events (Doubles Tourney, Skil-Shot Challenge, & Mini-Golf) starting at noon on the 26th at McClelland Park in Joplin.  We are guaranteeing $4,000 added cash to the Pro fields, $1,000 added cash to the Friday Field Events, our usual $65+ value players pack for all Am’s along with full voucher payout, free Saturday night players party, and a Friday night check-in party. 

TownePlace Suites is our host hotel this year.  We have secured a substantial discount for the rooms at $74 per night (regular price is $94) for either a Queen or Queen/Queen.  All rooms at this hotel are suites, and include a fully equipped kitchen, breakfast, saltwater swimming pool, and the hotel has been recently remodeled.  You won’t find a nicer room anywhere near this price.  The hotel is located at 4026 South Arizona Avenue, Joplin, MO, which is right off I-44 & Rangeline Rd.  You must call 417.659.8111 and mention the Four States Open to get this rate.  (You will also receive a voucher for free merch from the JDGC with a paid TownePlace Suite’s receipt or any other Joplin hotel!)

Visit for more details or register at  This year we will have three pools, A, B, & C, playing on Saturday and Sunday, four rounds total.  The schedule can be found on the flyer.  The field is maxed at 270 players with 90 in each pool.  We do expect some of these pools to fill so please pre-register early!

This year we are adding Morse Park North in Neosho, MO to the tournament to provide an additional challenge and accommodate more players. Each pool will play one round in Neosho. McClelland Park in Joplin will still be home to the 4SO two-course layout.

The Friday Doubles Tournament and Field Events Competitions (Longest Drive, EDGE SkillShot, & Putting Contest) will be open to anyone not playing on Friday in Pool A and take place on September 27th with $500 added to the payouts. The flex start time is from 12-6 PM with unlimited rounds. Entry fees for Friday Doubles is $30 per team for Adv and $20 per team for Intermediate or Rec. Cost for the Field Events is still TBD.

The FREE Player’s Party will be held Saturday night at Blackthorn Pizza & Pub in downtown Joplin with free Blackthorn Pizza for all players. The plans include having the entire city block out front blocked off for our party to include the Putting Contest Finals and a beer garden along with other activities. The party should run sometime around 6-9 PM.

The players pack for all Am players includes a dri-fit shirt, custom stamped Prodigy disc, custom stamped Discraft/Innova disc, and a $30 Tour Towel.  This is a $78 value!  All Rec and Jr divisions are trophy only and will have bonus players pack items.

Spread the word, pre-register, and get ready for the 2013 Four States Open.

Found and Lost / Lost at Blue Valley
« on: June 13, 2011, 01:01:32 pm »
My buddy and I lost three discs at BV yesterday.

Hole #5 is a maroon CH Destroyer near the tree straight down the fairway where it turns to the left.

Hole #10 is an old red Buzzz to the right off the tee and over the trees.  This was just a lazy toss off the tee so we could leave to go to Swope to watch the finals but we could never find the Buzzz.  This Buzzz is quite important to me. 

Hole #16 is a Green Boss thrown forehand but stayed left in the deep rough.

All have names & phone #'s on them. 

As usual, the JDGC will be hosting the 5th Annual Four States Open on the last weekend of September.  This year's event will be a B-Tier, two-day event and it promises to be the best event we've ever put on.  We've got $1500 added cash to the tourney, $150 added cash to the Friday night doubles, a premo players pack including a quality disc & dri-fit shirt, free lunch, a Saturday night party will be provided w/free food in downtown Joplin, AM payout is pick your own prizes, and we're giving away $10 vouchers to anyone who stays at a Joplin hotel at least one night (Microtel is $44/night!). 

Pre-registration is up:
