What People Are Saying….
What an amazing event!!! Even before this event, I love what Kansas City disc golf is all about, but after the event, I can’t help but look back and say, we are raising the bar on what it is to run a world class event!!! I was taken aback by the size of our gallery. Kansas City is the BEST flying disc town in the world, HANDS DOWN! Congrats to Greg Utz, for blistering Water Works and getting his first 1000 rated round, in rout to an 8 throw win!!!! Also to Jake Bowen on being the top Kansas City finisher in the Open division for the KCWO XXX!!! A Special THANKS to, Jack, Rick, Dan, Tavish, Timko, and CraZZZZY, all the Course Coordinators and volunteers, for having our courses in tip-top shape. Thank for going above and beyond to make this a guaranteed stop on tour!!!! None of this is possible without you all!!! I may be from Omaha/Charlotte, But Kansas City is were I Live and Love, and I am extremely proud to call it MY HOME!!!

We really can look back on the last weekend and raise our heads a little higher. The KCWO Committee blew us all away with the fruits of their labors. Rick, Crazy, Jack, Tavish and Dan stepped up and gave their passion for the sport right back to their hometown. All of the volunteers, course TDs, Beer League, KCFDC BOD, sponsors big and small, Kansas Citians, and club members just set the standard for the KCWO. I heard accolades in all directions. Everybody was really impressed with the courses, the challenge, and the player experience. What a pleasure being part of this community is. I talked to Dave Hemmeline before the awards ceremony, and he summed up his feelings about KC, the courses, and the community in two words, ‘Big heart.’
