Texas State Disc Golf Holds Annual Tournament

The Texas State Disc Golf Club team is going to be holding their annual Bobcat Open Tournament on Sunday, November 10th. Adam Kitts, Safety Officer, gave me some details on the tournament.

“It’s on campus at the Texas State disc golf course by hole ten’s basket from 7:30-8:30 A.M,” Kitts said. “It’s going to be two rounds of 21 holes. One in the morning, first round at 9. We’re going to have a lunch there’s going to be some free food provided by HEB. There’s going to be some sodas and waters and stuff.  The second round will take place after lunch. After that will be the award ceremony payout for amateurs and pros.”

Anyone can participate in this tournament. You could be a pro, or maybe you just love to play for fun, listen up for the prices.

There’s two divisions. Amateur and pro. For amateur it’s $20 and optional $5 ace spot. For pro it’s going to be $30 plus an optional $5 ace spot. Amateur pays out plastic and Pro pays out cash.

In case you can’t make this upcoming tournament, no worries, there is another tournament going on in the Spring semester.

“Every Sunday we do a mini tournament,” Kitts said. “At 2 o’clock anyone can come play. It’s $6, covers ace spot and the tournament. If you don’t want to pay for the tournament, you can play along with us. You can also pay for the ace spot for $2, $1 goes to the club and $1 goes to the ace spot. You can possibly win $100 if you hit a hole in one.”

This isn’t only a fun weekend for disc golf club students, but it also helps support and donate money to the Texas State disc golf club team.

It’s helping us go to national’s is the big deal. We’re raising money to help us go to Georgia next semester to play in the national championship tournament.
