About this tournament

Disc Downtown is bringing Disc Golf back to the streets of Grand Rapids in this second annual tournament. This year however, they're constructing this one-day temporary urban course in the sunny days of summer.

For those that experienced this event in 2017 know to register early for this one-of-a-kind tournament but for those not familiar with downtown disc golf, it's exactly that. Yes, downtown disc golf...as in closed streets, Chainstars in major intersections and under 8 lanes of thundering US-131.

Disc Downtown is a non-profit, charitable organization that focuses on introducing our beloved sport to those in urban settings. To do this, we shut down streets, create prototype discs by Discraft, introduce disc golf to the public and bang chains.

Here are the tournament details:

Player packs for amateur and professional division include one Disc Downtown Buzzz, one Disc Downtown Challenger, one short-sleeved event shirt (FIRST 50 MA1 & MPO PLAYERS ONLY) and tons of extras and swag provided by event sponsors.

REGISTRATION FEE .... $100 per team
Cash payouts per PDGA guidelines. Scores do not affect PDGA rating however, points will apply toward PDGA player points.

REGISTRATION FEE .... $100 per team
Merchandise payouts per PDGA guidelines provided by Disc Baron, on site and online. Scores do not affect PDGA rating however, points will apply toward PDGA player points.

REGISTRATION FEE ... $40 per team
The Family Fun Division is non-competitive. Participants will receive one event disc per person. Event shirts and additional discs available for purchase. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.


Only official Disc Downtown approved discs are allowed in this tournament.***
We have to be safe, people. We are shooting disc golf in the city and want to introduce our sport in a positive manner. To do this, we've worked with Discraft to develop plastic safe for the streets. They're made of a sexy, flexy plastic that bounces off car windows, store fronts even humans without damage or injury.

All tournament participants will be provided with approved, "urban-safe" tournament discs for use during the tournament. (Pro & Am divisions will receive 4 discs per team/2 per person. Family Fun participants will receive one disc per player entry.)

Approved discs include Official "Urban Disco" Magnet by Discraft, Disc Downtown Buzzz by Discraft and Disc Downtown Challenger by Discraft. Use of any other disc during tournament is prohibited and will result disqualification of player and team without refund.

Meaning, safety first.

All official, PDGA rules and regulations will be enforced. Know the code; respect the code. Represent our sport with pride.

Schedule subject to change.
