This event is Saturday Sept 16th, 2023. Registration closes 1 week before the event in order for us to get all the passes before the event. We ask that you make sure and show up early before they start to close down the park. We will give you a day pass when you show up.


This event is RAIN OR SHINE! The only thing that will keep us from playing the course is if we experience lightning within 7 miles of the course. At that point, we will wait 30 minutes after the last strike before playing the round. If we get lightning during the round, I will blow a horn, yell at the top of my lungs, whatever it takes to get you off the course. If you hear those alerts, please mark your lie, DO NOT FINISH THE HOLE, and head back to the parking lot and seek shelter. 30 minutes after the last strike I will get everyone back together and send you back to where you left off to complete your round.


Check-in will be at hole #1 of the course. If you have never been to Jesse James disc golf course, the course is located in the very back of the park. So when you enter, continue down the main road until it comes to an end. There is a sign that says " Disc Golf Parking."


We will have a short players' meeting at 9 AM where I will go over all the special rules and things you need to be aware of during our round of disc golf that morning. After that, I will send you off on to the course, on a designated hole, where you will play in a shotgun start. Shotgun starts means that each group will start on a specific hole and make their way through the course. When your group reaches #18, you will proceed to #1 and play out the remaining holes until you complete all 18. For example, if you start on hole #6, you will play #6-18, then go to #1 and continue playing until you finish on #5. At that time we ask that you tally your scores correctly and proceed to head back to tournament HQ which is next to hole #1.


There will be no refunds after the close of registration. All passes are paid for and finalized. If you can not play, you can still use your pass to enjoy the festival.

Check-In - Saturday 9/16/22 from 8-8:45 am, near Hole 1
Players Meeting - 9 am - Near Hole 1
Shotgun Start @ 9:30 am
