About this tournament

This Fund raising tournament is a 1 day, 1 round division based fun event to help fund the rest of the tee pads and other restoration needs in the park.

Also to bring about awareness of the park and the game of disc golf. Some of you may or may not have heard about Air Zoo being closed due to vandalism. These are the kinds of things we are trying to prevent with these types of events.


2013 Alpha Players and many sponsors went forward and raised awareness of the declining parks in our area. One of the leading parks for learning how to play disc golf was in dire need of clean up and restoration. In 2013 we raised enough funds to hire a lawn service Ducks Lawn Care who came in with Kentwood Parks and Rec. and cleaned up the fairways, picked up the garbage, reposted several signs, put in teepads at holes 1, 2, 4, 10, 16, 17, and 18 - This year we want to raise enough funds to finish the park and the goal is to put tee pads in all holes except 15 where the cart path is the tee pad. Hole #3 would be set back beyond the tree with all the roots and the mando moved over one tree creating a better shot for safety and eliminating hole 2 coming at you. Hole #13 would be redesigned with the launch pad more up by the cart path and also helping with being shot at from #12. DGA has helped tremendously with a fundraiser package that we paid for. There will be a Basket to be raffled off, there will be CTP holes, there will be an Ace Pool, and yes Open is 100% payout. I would ask are local Pro Golfers to attend both days, Sat will be all AM 3s it would be nice to have some pros there on the course helping out or even signing some discs. On the next day will be AM 2s and AM 1s then Open which I would like to see for myself these guys who have started like we all did and know are perfecting the game. Plenty of prize support. 1st 100 registered will receive a logo disc from DGA with our stamp on it. Cost of the event is $20.00. You can register at Alpha Players prior to the event. Alpha Players is located at 4318 s. division ave. kentwood, MI. Now after the 100 disc are gone that doesnt mean you wont have anything for your money. At this time Alpha Players has decided that those who register minus the open class they get cash, there is $5.00 of the 20 going aromatically to the fundraiser, thats 15.00 we have to split on costs. roughly we have $6.00 depending on numbers that will be discounted on other purchases. It is a fundraiser and we are needing to raise $4000.00 to do what is needed. Special Thanks To Walt Smith who has purchased $985.00 of product for this event. Ducks Lawn Care has donated $1,250.00 for equipment and labor, If there is anyone wanting to get involved please write [email redacted] Thank You
