16 days out, tournament is half full.


Two rounds of 18 holes at Centennial Park in Lawrence, KS.  Grip Equipment is the presenting sponsor providing bags for the Ace Fund.  The revenue generated from this ace fund is being used to pay for a portable restroom, park fees and an added item that all (Pro and Am) will receive.  Please consider participating in the Ace Fund.

INNOVA Champion Discs is the disc sponsor. 

Yankee Tank Brewing is providing Qty 3, 1/6 Barrels of beer for free to players of legal drinking age after the second round is completed. 

Non-PDGA fee for those that are not current - $10
DAY OF Registration fee - $3.  (This is waived if you pre-register)

Registration is open and the tournament is already 40% full.  Because day of registration is becoming problematic, a $3 Day Of fee is being implemented for the purpose to encourage people to pre-register online prior to the closing of registration which is usually 5:30 - 6pm the night before.

Player Pack Discs:
Champion Wraith
Champion Roc3
Black Champion Thunderbird
Champion Metal Flake Ape
Champion Metal Flake Colossus
Champion Metal Flake Leopard

There will be a Win Your Card, Win a Prize for the second round.  Undecided what it is yet, but probably something like a Sportsack or similar value.

Thank you for everyone that came out and enjoyed the wonderful day and this crazy big disc golf course.  The park was in fantastically wonderful shape.  I heard a lot of compliments on how well it looked.

Results can be found here:

2 spots left for big course. Plenty of room on short course for juniors and novice.

Getting a nice pre-registration list going.

For big course, we cap at 90 - have 52 so far.  Last year I had 20+ walk ups the morning off and the weather was noticeably less appealing than this year.

For short course, we have 2 so far.  Plenty of room for Novice (men or women) and Juniors 15 & under.  Short course is cheap - $10 plus you still get a DX Skeeter.

Guesstimate... How long will it take to play?

Yeah, I would say 4-4.5 hours.  I'm going to play it Friday at 10am because I want to and to get a feel for how's it going to go.  I don't intend to play Saturday.

Where might those pin placements be?  Long in the woods on 4 and right on 11?

Correct.  4 is about 75'? longer down the slope towards the creek inside the woods.

11 is more straight instead of hook left when it gets to the clearing at the bottom of the hill.  It's also kind of in the woods just barely over a little burm.

If you look at the pictures on DGCR, you'll see that I'm the one that uploaded them until hole 12.  My phone battery died at that point.

I played it 2 years ago.

This DGCR description is pretty accurate:

Front 9 plays flat and around a small seasonal creek, back nine meanders up and down a decent size hill. Shortest hole is 143ft with major elevation and longest holes are both in the 360s.

The first 6 in particularly are very short and play VERY close to other park stuff like benches, baseball back stops, play ground, sidewalks.  My first thought when I played this was, 'how many times per year does someone get hurt here?'

There are 5-10 kind of neat holes. 

If you like to go on road trips / adventures and accept what a small town has to offer for a course, I'll think you'll be ok.  If you are looking for a quality disc golf course to really rip it on that is well thought out regarding placements, etc., you may be disappointed.

Me?  I like to play as many different courses that I can so I'm glad I played it.  I would consider going if it wasn't so far away.

yeah, I was really impressed on how short the grass actually was.  About the shortest I've ever seen it.

I only walked 4, 7, and 11 to get the new distance measurements, and overall, the course looked really, really good with a fresh mow. 

Doug told me baskets will be moved soon.  We're still 2 weeks out.

Intention is not to hijack this thread, but to inform some parents that have been watching for junior tournaments.

For those parents with Juniors, this year the Big Blue Monster on November 5th has Junior II (15 & Under) III (12 & Under) and IV (10 & Under) divisions available.  They will be playing the 9 hole course at Blue Valley Park in Kansas City, MO twice.  2 laps, back to back, without a break in-between.  Cost is $10 and each player will receive an Innova DX Skeeter.

There is a Junior I (18 & Under) division, but they will be playing the Big Blue course which will be set over 11,000 feet and costs $15.
