About this tournament

Surviving historic wildfire and a pandemic, one of the best summer fun events in northern Colorado is back! Celebrating the longest day of of the year we’ll be starting later than normal and provide multiple frisbee events for maximum fun and camaraderie. Lodging, food, beer, snacks, water, rec room and more are available on-site. In addition to the two-round PDGA B-Tier sanctioned disc golf tournament, extra fun Putting Competition, Glow Round and Accuracy Challenge events plus a 9-Hole Mini Disc Golf Course will be available with half of those entry fees going to charity.

As always in an effort to help grow the sport, all women and junior divisions get to register a week earlier than everyone else. Each tournament entry fee includes $10 greens fees and $15 dinner Saturday evening. Everyone can register one-entry to any or all extra fun events during online registration. Tournament rounds and the Glow round will be scheduled but all other extra fun events are to be played on your own time. The Putting Competition will be 2 rounds with first round being Saturday and the finals being played out immediately following the second round, before the award ceremony. All extra fun events scorecards must be turned in before 10:00am Sunday morning to count.

All of this fun is contained on a gorgeous ranch at around 8000 feet elevation near Red Feather Lakes, CO about 45 minutes northwest of Fort Collins and about 2 hours north of Denver. Sundance Trail Guest Ranch is a little remote and has limited cell service. But there is wifi near the rec room and main lodge.

There is a nice fire ring right by tournament central which would be an excellent opportunity for jams or sing-a-longs Saturday night. Nothing electric please, but bring your guitar if you’re repertoire includes songs most people would know and love.

June is absolutely gorgeous with wildflowers and green everywhere but can also be wet. I’ll try to get bridges and provide course updates but just be prepared for anything, as it is indeed the Colorado mountains.
