24th Annual Mid-America Open

Join us for the 24th annual Mid-America Open Disc Golf Tournament on Saturday and Sunday, July 12th and 13th, 2008. This PDGA B-tier pro and amateur event will be played on 3 beautiful and challenging courses in Columbia. Download a registration form here.

We anticipate fielding advanced, intermediate, and novice divisions in the amateur ranks as well as multiple pro divisions. All contestants will play 4 rounds of golf, and there will be a final 9 for the top 4 players in the Open, Masters, and Women’s divisions. All amateurs will receive a players’ package, and we’re adding funds to the purse to guarantee generous payouts for all divisions. Continuing our Mid-Am tradition, women play for half price. For example, Open Women players will pay $45 to register, but their prizes will be based on the $90 registration fee for the Open Men’s division. We also have done our best to keep low registration fees for novice and junior divisions.

In addition to great golf, we are planning other fun activities over the weekend:
• Doubles tournament on Friday afternoon starting at 1 p.m.
• Regular in-round CTPs
• Ace fund covers the entire weekend — if not hit during a round, we’ll have a throw off for it
• Ring of fire and other games of skill for pride and prizes
• Mini tournament on Saturday evening
• Great barbecue and d-golf party Saturday evening
