WELCOME TO THE
2014 DISCRAFT
MICHIGAN STATE CHAMPIONSHIPS


Sponsored by the MDGO and JBIRD DISCS!!!!
















FRIDAY AUG 29 THRU MONDAY SEPT 1







Welcome again to the 19th annual tournament at Ludington and the 23rd State Championship sponsored by the MDGO!

Changes for this year-
Riverside Park, Scottville
Scottville course is at Riverside Park on the south end of town- Drive thru park/campground all the way to back past bathrooms. Tee pads have been approved- However they be our responsibility to purchase so some temp pads are in till then. Still liberal tee pads here. There are 15 tight wooded holes and 9 in the big field. Technical AND big air!

Leviathan, Ludington-
The cement project for mids and short continues- The front is almost done- WE KNOW THE TEE PADS SUCK- you may tee BEHIND any mat instead of on them. The longs have 4 new holes- A longer A, a hole that plays from B fairway to the C basket, a hole after 12 that plays to the E basket and a new hole between 15 and 16- BE CAREFUL! Watch card on back and make sure you play course correctly!! YOU are responsible.

West Shore Community College-
Pro course is almost complete- 2015- Tee pads ( rubber mats) are installed for 2014- you may tee to either side 1 foot leeway- Follow signs to ice arena- course is at back of ice arena.

Mason Co Park- Ludington and
Flip City- Shelby

The three courses at Mason Co Park and Flip City at Shelby remain virtually unchanged- At Mason Co Park follow park road to the split- turn left and drive to pavilion. The PRO tees will be used by ALL divisions at Flip City and the BLACK LINE on the tees is the tee- NOT the end of the pad- Bill has updated some of the worn pads

-Thanks to Dan “mow maniac” Gipe
-Thanks to Adam Geise for volunteer work all year long EVERYWHERE!!
-Chrys Moore trimming all courses!!
-Thanks to Bill McKenzie for letting us include Flip City!
