Fling with the King Disc Golf Tournament

Elvis Fling with the King 2014

Veteran's Park - Tupelo, Mississippi Saturday & Sunday, June 7-8 2014

For the past three years FWTK has been two long rounds over two days. This year we are going back to a total of three rounds, 2 on Saturday and 1 long one on Sunday.

Saturday will begin with the player's meeting at 9:00am with an estimated initial round start of 9:30, or as soon thereafter depending on any possible delays caused by the "Running with the King" event also held at Veterans Park.

The morning round will be on the original Veterans course and consist of 17 holes, some of which will be tweaked for a little extra tournament challenge. All cards will be divisional (as best we can manage) and all divisions will tee from the Am pads. Most baskets will be in their "B" positions.

The afternoon round will be on Thunderchief's 18 hole course.

We're working toward providing lunch at Veterans and will advise more details on this later.

Sunday: There will be no need to gather for Sunday's round. Just show up at your designated hole and be ready to tee off at 9:30am. Sunday's round will be a combination of Veteran's original course combined with some challenging tweaks to the Thunderchief course. It will be quite similar to the past two years layout. Advance and Pro divisions will play from the Pro pads on Sunday.

Awards have been ordered for the following divisions: Men's Pro Women's Pro Men's Grand Master Men's Advance Master Men's Advance Men's Am Women's Am Junior

(3+ to make a division)

The tournament is not sanctioned. Put those dollars in the ace pot and let's keep em' local.
