7 alternate (shown as 7B on map). Alt pad to island hole. Road left and beyond is OB. Road that cuts across the fairway is a river. Land on it, you are OB. Road long and beyond is OB. Road right and beyond is OB. It will be painted where the road that cuts in front changes from river to OB.
8. Fairway is being shorten to ease congestion.. Tee area is on the road about 1/3 way down. It will be painted. If you want to practice, got down the road to where there is some scratches/words in the concrete when it was still wet. You will be close. Road itself is safe.

Speaking with Kent Bryan from Topeka who is working on this course a lot, their intention is to make it more maintenance friendly.  Longview is very maintenance intense.

Next Maverick DG tournament is the Atchison Aviatrix on June 18.

For early registrants that register before June 6 at 6 AM, (One week away) the Am player pack will be:
Innova Champion Savant - only released via tournaments (or you can swop for one of the discs listed below)
Innova cotton t-shirt
Innova mesh baseball cap
Mini, stickers, etc.

For all other Amateur players that register after 6 am June 6 or the day of, the player pack will be
Innova Pro plastic disc (R-Pro Boss, Pro Destroyer, Pro JK Aviar)
Shirt (various cotton and dri-fits in stock)

Registration link:

Wow, after all the discussion about possibly postponing the tournament, playing alternate holes, etc...WHAT A BEAUTIFUL DAY! Ground was wet, but playable. Blue skies. Typical Kansas wind. Turned out very well.

45 players showed up. Thanks guys and gal!

Results are here:

So, I've already have received enough of feedback to know Saturday is the best choice for most players. We will play Saturday and use as many temporary positions as we can.

If you have a temporary basket and want to bring it, we may end up using it. Not saying we would for sure, but the more available the more we can improve the playing conditions.

Sign up starts at 9am. Highly recommend you bring umbrellas, towels, dry socks and shoes. Typical disc golf rain gear.

I started a discussion on how we can deal with the wet conditions at the event's Facebook page.  As I don't want to detract from KCFDC Disc Golf Day, please go to the facebook page to pitch in your thought.

I'll also be emailing those that have signed up already via dgscene.

So check-in starts at 9am.  Just wanting to make sure.   So not doing one at melvern lake this year?

Yes, check in is at 9am.  No Melvern Lake so far.  (I lost my shirt on that tournament).

This week still at Bad Rock Creek?

Since this is the KCFDC forum page, I would like to take the opportunity to point out if you don't want to drive to mcclouth or if you want to take the opportunity to come play a casual round, have BBQ, drink beer if you're legal, and get a shirt and disc for $20, this also happens to be KC Disc Golf Day, the proceeds of which go to course improvements and other Club functions. If you go to McClouth, have fun and drive safe. :)

Agreed!  Participate in KC Disc Golf Day.  If that is not your thing, this is another option.

Updated tournament listings in original post.  Added new tournament - Limestone Classic in Cottonwood Falls, KS.  About 18 miles west of Emporia.  New course designed by Eric McCabe.

I thought it was funny around the 14 min mark Bradley is asked what disc he threw and his response is "some sh*tty disc only ams would throw." That guy is a tool.

Oh, I'm sure his current sponsor, Hyzerbomb Discs would love to hear that.

Maybe they should start handing out tournament suspensions. Seems to me, thats the only way as of right now no try and clean stuff like that up.

Actually, they have.  Bradley Williams was suspended for a portion of last year due to his outbursts and rumor is the reason why Prodigy dropped him as a sponsored player was because of that suspension.  So yeah, it has already cost him.

As long as there are openings, walk ups are welcome.

Regarding player packs:

All players, Pro and Am will receive a bottle of Carolyn's Dirty Water all-natural bug repellent.

Additinally, each Amateur player will receive one Gateway putter and a Maverick Disc Golf mini. For the second round, there will be a win your card, win a Lil' Wizard (medium sized orange disc in second picture). I ordered 5-30 of these discs in each mold.

CHIEF (3/2/0/1)
 (CH-OS) CHIEF OS (3/2/0/2.5)
 (DH) DEVIL HAWK (3/2/0/2)
 (MAG) MAGIC (2/3/-1/0)
 (SHA) SHAMAN (3/3/-2/0)
 (V) VOODOO (2/3/0/1)
 (WSP) WAR SPEAR (3/3/-2/1)
 (WK) WARLOCK (2/3/0/1)
 (WIZ) WIZARD (2/2/0/2)

All discs are S or SS except Wizards which are S through RFF. Flexibility goes from firmest to softest below.


Purple division will also receive a voucher for either a second Gateway disc ($12 value), a Maverick dri-fit shirt ($15 value), or $10 towards anything else.

$25 all divisions.  Ratings based tournament similiar to the Big Blue Monster (which is different than the Wide Open's Performance Flight this past weekend).  It is still stroke play, but you are grouped with players with similiar ratings versus age or gender.


The McLouth disc golf crew has been working really hard to continue improving the Rose Park course.  Check out some photos of their work here:
