Disc Golf Pro Tournament coming to town, Sept. 29

The Sticky Lizard Pro Open Disc golf tournament sponsored by Garmont and Base Camp Outfitters will be held at Base Camp Disc golf course Sept. 29. Many of the top pro's from all over New England will be attending including all the top pro's from Vermont.

This is a unique event in the disc golf world because it is a Pro event only and therefore only attracts the best golfers. The field is limited to only 42 players.

This is a fabulous opportunity to see how this sport is played. Spectators are welcome to wander the course and see what amazing things these guys and gals can do with a disc. There are two rounds to be played with the first round starting at 9 a.m. The second round will begin at 1 p.m. This second round will be the best round for viewing. Information will be available at Base Camp as to where to go for the best viewing areas and there will be volunteers on the course to help direct spectators.

"I am very excited to have all these top players coming to play Base Camp Disc Golf course," says Mike Miller, owner of Base Camp Outfitters. "This event sold out within three weeks and there was a waiting list of up to 20 more players wanting to get in. No tournament in Vermont has ever sold out so fast." Miller attributes this to the quality of the course and its high ranking on "disc golf review." Mark your calendar, and come see why this is the fastest growing sport in the world.
