FOR THE COURIER

Glasgow, Montana (8/3/2021)- The Hi-Line Hyzers Disc Golf Club are pleased to announce that the second annual Hi-Line Hyzers Fall Fling Disc Golf Tournament will be held at The Fortress Disc Golf Course in Fort Peck, Montana on September 25, 2021. The tournament is sanctioned by the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA). The PDGA is the international governing body for the sport of disc golf and sanctions well over 3,100 tournaments in 49 states and 29 countries each year for professional and amateur disc golfers.

Disc Golf, or Frisbee™ Golf as it is more commonly known, is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States with over 7,000 courses in existence and many more being installed each year. The sport is played using the same general rules, terminology and etiquette as traditional golf, but instead of using a club to hit a ball into a hole in the ground, the player throws a high-tech flying disc into a standardized target. Most courses are comprised of 18 par rated holes with diverse terrain and natural obstacles and the object, just as in traditional golf, is to play in as few throws of the disc as possible. Serious competitors carry a bag of approximately 10-15 discs, each one having a different flight characteristic, but the sport can be played recreationally with only one disc. Golf discs are very different in design from the Frisbee™ you play catch with and can be skillfully thrown by the sport’s top professional players as far as 500’ with amazing pinpoint accuracy.

Tournament Director Brandon Bigelbach stated, “Fort Peck is one of the best places to visit and recreate in northeast Montana. We have an exploding disc golf scene here in northeast Montana and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to host our second annual tournament as a full-fledged PDGA event. I, along with the rest of the Hi-Line Hyzers Disc Golf Club, are confident that we will put together an unforgettable experience for our players, and we hope to see you there!”
