Building on last year's record of 354 competitors, the tenth edition is going to be the most prestigious GBO to date! Players and fans alike will be "Livin' the Dream" for three rounds on three different courses. In addition to the Emporia Country Club and the Jones Championship Gold Layout, the 2012 GBO will feature a round on the Emporia Municipal Golf Course. All courses will run on tee times this year allowing people to follow the leaders, participate in the Discraft "Just Focus" putting competion, drop bombs in the Skywalker Gymnastic Long Drive competition, check out Dynamic Discs Headquarters, or just kick back relax and save your energy for you personal pursuit of a championship.
Three rounds of golf may not be enough for some die hard golfers. To help satisfy the need for more golf, two separate C-Tier 'One Round Challenges' will be available at Peter Pan Park both Friday and Saturday. Each event is separate and features a flex start so that you can play either before or after your GBO round. Rounds usually take 1.5 hours to play in a smaller tournament setting.
Our motto once again is "Livin' the Dream". And we want to make sure you're living it from the moment that you start your travels until the time you get back home. We understand that making the GBO a three day event will take a tremendous commitment from you. Your commitment and support the last 9 years have helped the GBO grow into a great event, and we expect nothing less this April! Our generous sponsors have stepped up in a big way this year and are donating more than ever before to make sure that you make the Glass Blown Open and Emporia your disc golf destination event for 2012.
Tee times and this year's 3 Day/ 3 Round format are just a part of Dynamic Discs's continuing effort to move the sport forward, interest more players, expand media attention, and help put disc golf in front of more players than ever in the Midwest region. Our expectations are high. The GBO is more than just a disc golf tournament; it's a celebration of the sport and an indication of where it is going in the very near future. Without the PLAYERS and the support from YOU, DD events would be just another tourney! Thank you so much for your support and drive to help us take disc golf to a new level. Together we will create some attention and excitement from outside the sport. So while we're making memories to last a lifetime, we'll also be helping to grow the game we all love!
We're looking forward to seeing you in Emporia, KS this April. For complete event details please visit www.GlassBlownOpen.com
