SouthEast Collegiate Open

SouthEast Collegiate Open

The 2013-2014 collegiate disc golf season is starting to take shape. Two weeks ago the Great Lakes Collegiate Open kicked it off. The GLCO was not only the first event of the season, but it was also the first of six Premier Qualifiers that award two Bye Seeds to Nationals held in April. The Innova SouthEast Collegiate Open is the second Premier of the year.

SECO hosts largest collegiate field other than the National Championships.

What a great weekend for disc golf? The competitors at the SouthEast Collegiate Open couldn’t have asked for more. With the beautiful backdrop of a southeastern fall day coupled with the spectacular sites of Flyboy Aviation Disc Golf Course, these guys were in for a great experience. On almost every hole, there was a wondrous view to take in before realizing the challenges of the task at hand. The course’s ponds and green grass fairways are great, but it’s the course design that really sets this place above the rest. Each hole provides a unique test of a player’s mental and physical game. Needless to say, no one had a bad time on the course, no matter how far above par they ended up.

On November 6th and 7th collegiate teams from colleges and universities spanning eight different states and more than 900 miles will be competing in the first ever SouthEast Collegiate Open. Registration filled almost two months before the tournament and the teams have been anxiously waiting ever since. The tournament is going to be hosted at the new-to-fame and raved about course at Flyboy Aviation just outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
