The reviews are very positive aside from the lack of concrete tee pads.

Why...The tee pads at Indian Oaks are currently pieces of Berber carpet. This tournament is being run as part of the PDGA's Compeition Endowment Program. The primary goal of this event is to raise the funds needed to replace the berber carpet with concrete. Of the $29 entry fee, $1 will go into an ace pool, $10 will be used for concrete & $18 will go toward event payout.

Glide & Marengo Disc Golf have partnered up to run this event. Glide will donate 10% of all sales at the event toward concrete tee pads.
If no one hits an ace, the ace pool will be put toward concrete tee pads too.
Particpants who are not curent members of the PDGA typically have to pay an additional $10 fee at C and B tier events. However, as part of the PDGA's Competition Endowment Program, the PDGA does not charge this fee.
