About this tournament

Welcome to the 2023 Kansas City Flying Disc Challenge!

The Kansas City Flying Disc Challenge has been selected as a Regional Qualifier for the DGPT - TruBank Des Moines Challenge presented by Discraft. The top two MPO finishers with ratings above 935 (Due to PDGA ratings floor requirement) and the top DGPT eligible FPO finisher will be invited to register for the 2023 TruBank Des Moines Challenge!

This tournament will be four rounds over two days on four different courses:

Paradise Pointe - Woodhenge (Chainstar)
Paradise Pointe - Black Thorn (Chainstar)
LaBenite DGC (Disc Golf Park)
Water Works Park (Mach X)

Tentative pool assignments (each pool caps at 72) and pool schedules:

Pool A: MPO
Pool B: FPO, MP40, MP50, MP60, MA1, MA40
Pool C: FA1, FA40, MA2, MA50
Pool D: MA60, MA65, FA2, FA3, MA3, MA4, MJ18

Pool A: Water Works, LaBenite Longs, Black Thorn, Woodhenge
Pool B: LaBenite Longs, Water Works, Woodhenge, Black Thorn
Pool C: Black Thorn, Woodhenge, LaBenite Shorts, Water Works
Pool D: Woodhenge, Black Thorn, Water Works, LaBenite Shorts

Warm up areas:

Water Works has limited warm up areas. There is a small warm up area with practice basket to the east of Hole 12. There is an additional practice putting basket in the island (but it's a Mach III, I think - not a Mach X for sure).

LaBenite has excellent warm up facilities, with a driving range and three practice baskets for putting.

Woodhenge/Black Thorn are in a complex with three courses; Beaver Creek is the third course and is not part of the tournament. There is a practice basket for putting near hole 1 of Black Thorn, and a basket from Beaver immediately across the street from Black Thorn hole 1. There are also some open areas for warming up throughout the complex.

As always, thanks to our sponsors and partners!
