Ladies and gentlemen, this tournament is very important to disc golf in Northwest Florida. One of the main missions of DeFunk Disco, Inc. is to grow the spot of disc golf. All sponsorships and proceeds from this tournament will fund “Tour DeFunk” at Lakefest on May 18, 2019. During this event, we will have a FREE course (similar but shorter than this tournament’s setup) where we will actively recruit new members of the local community to fall in love with our beloved sport. We will be giving guided tours to beginning players and providing discs for them to use, teaching the basic fundamentals and safety aspects of the sport, and getting people excited about disc golf so that new courses can be built in our area. We expect between 1,000 and 1,200 people to attend! Please come out and join us at Lakefest on May 18th to represent the sport and play some free disc golf! There will be limited edition, custom-dyed Lakefest discs for sale, as well as a bunch of other merchandise too! There will also be TONS of local vendors and food services as well. Bring the family for a fun day at the park! We are in need of Tour DeFunk volunteers, so please reach out to us if you want to help a great cause!
