Recommend a good tournament to play in late Sep/early Oct...

Post by TheGroover » Mon Jul 24, 2006 1:46 pm

I have some free time late Sep/early October.

Can anyone recommend a good tournament abroad I could go to play and have a good time?

I've looked on the PDGA calendar, and found the South Carolina Open, and the Namur open in Belgium.

Anyone got any thoughts about these? The USDGC follows the South Carolina Open, which I guess would be exciting, but I really want to PLAY golf rather than watch.

Is anyone going to either of those tournies?

Or does anyone know of any other events that I should look out for?

I'm thinking about going to the Eric C. Yetter Champions Cup in Newtown, PA on 16-17 of September.

Maybe the Charlotte Open (North Carolina) on October 7-8 as well.

l would recommend the 8th Oktoberfest in Red Rock, TX.

http://www.pdga.com/schedule/event.php?TournID=5746

It isn't very far outside of Austin, TX. You can stay in Austin and play at different courses every day without driving more than 30 mins. There are local courses that have midweek non sanctioned events, and still have 72+ entrants.

Plus the nightlife in Austin is second to none!!!
Frolf it up!!!!

That's a great idea. Austin's always been a place I've wanted to go for the music, too.

And, it's the Lance Armstrong Livestrong ride on the 8th in Austin, too. That presents a dilemma: follow my current obsession, disc golf, and play the tourny. Or, take the chance to ride with my hero, Lance.

Not a bad decision to have to make!

Do you know any people out there I could hook up with, Fernando? If not, I'll tart myself around the forums...

Anyone else planning on going?

I don't know any people right in Austin. Tim might be able to put you in touch with Michael Olse. He came out for the British Open last year, and lives there. He is a very good player. He and Jay Reading just won the PDGA Pro World Doubles at the Circle R Disc Golf Ranch jst south of Austin. That is another place you would have to play! Two great courses, with three tees on each hole to choose from.
