The Flying Eagle Disc Society, Eagle County’s disc golf club, is proud to introduce the inaugural Flying Eagle Open disc golf tournament presented by Bonfire Brewing. This will be a PDGA C-Tier event featuring two rounds of golf on two separate courses, and is set to take place on September 26th and 27th 2015.
Round one on Saturday will play at the newly renovated Hole in the Sky Disc Golf Course at the Eagle County Fairgrounds in Eagle, CO. Round two will take place on a championship-style, temporary layout at the picturesque Gypsum Creek Golf Course in Gypsum, CO. This is a rare and special opportunity to play a tournament round of disc golf in a traditional golf course setting.
Both rounds will be run with assigned tee times for each player and both courses will feature alternate tee positions depending on division. Open and Advanced will play from the long tees while Intermediate, Recreational and Juniors will play from the short tees. Amateur players can expect to receive a robust players pack, and there will be payouts to top finishers in all divisions (cash in pro and prizes in am), in addition to trophies for top players in each division.
Hole in the Sky DGC is a permanent, public course and will be open for practice rounds from sunrise to sunset until the day of the event. Gypsum Creek will have a limited practice and preview window with the course open on Saturday the 26th from 4:30 p.m. to sunset. Access for the practice session will be first-come, first-served. Golf carts will be available to rent for the practice session but will not be in use during the competition round.
We are excited to show off the brand new layout at Hole in the Sky DGC at the Eagle County Fairgrounds as well as provide this rare, first-of-its-kind opportunity to host a sanctioned tournament on a traditional golf course in the state of Colorado, especially one as prestigious as Gypsum Creek. Please join us for a weekend of disc golf and camaraderie in the autumn beauty of the high Rocky Mountains!
