Here's the info. All courses now have Tee-Pads. We are not playing the hardest configs, we went for the most enjoyable. Ace-runs at each!
All players will play Sioux Passage, Endicott, Jefferson Barracks and Creve Coeur in the same course layout for all divisions. All of these courses are of championship caliper. The pin placements on the courses now are the ones we will be playing for the event. This will allow players ample time to practice. We chose to not put everything in the long pins but go with a mix of short and long for all skill levels.
We have Fat Tire beer provided by New Belgium for those of age, and dinner provided by Sysco and prepared by Gary Suarez which will be served on Saturday night at Endicott around 6:30pm. We will be giving away a minimum of 5 baskets at the event. For the Pros we have $1,000 added to the purse.
The entry fees:
All Pro Divisions $60
All Advance Am Divisions $50
All Intermediate Am Div $40
All Recreation Divisions $35
All Junior <16 Divisions $35
(note, there must be at least 3 players in a division)
There are actually two tournaments; An â€œA Tierâ€ PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) and a â€œB Tierâ€ Pro event going on the same weekend. Both are called the St. Louis Open. In order to play in an â€œA tierâ€ amateur event you must be a current PDGA member. This annual fee for amateur players is $40 in addition to your entry fee. As a PDGA member you receive a quarterly magazine, a rule book and a PDGA number. You can join the PDGA when you register for the event. Since itâ€™s a â€œB Tierâ€ for Pros, you will need to pay an extra $5 if you not a PDGA member.
