In 2008 I picked up my first disc and ever since I dreamed of having a challenging 18 hole course installed in Pittsburg KS. A year later the PITT Disc Golf Club was formed and in 2010 the innagural PITT Open began to blossom. After four years of playing and enjoying the sport of disc golf I’m proud to announce that Pittsburg KS will be getting 18 Monkey Traps installed in Schlanger Park for this years 3rd Annual PITT Open. Concrete tee pads, signs and other additions will follow late summer into early fall as a result of two grants that were received for this new course. I would like to thank the City of Pittsburg Parks and Rec, Russ Burns and anyone else that has helped in making this dream a reality. Like some great events already in Kansas (i.e Glass Blown Open) we have started off small and continue to grow each and every year. We hope you join us this year as we prepare to make this the best PITT Open to date as we have dreams to take it one step further next year. Thanks for your Support!

We will also be giving away free hotel rooms as prizes for this bring your own partner format. Afterwards, we will have the Crawford County Convention Bureau Players Party which will provide a free meal for all those competing in either the doubles tournament or the PITT Open. These festivities will take place at the new Smokey Racks BBQ restaurant behind the Lamplighter Inn on north highway 69. Fun games and a putting competition will take place at this event.
