29th Kansas City Wide Open-NT-Pro-*-A-Tier Am's

Postby jlowekc » Wed Apr 27, 2011 2:43 pm

Greetings from Kansas City!

As we head out of the winter months and into spring, the 29th Wide Open is fast approaching. This year, the Kansas City Flying Disc Club, in conjunction with many sponsors, is happy to host an elite National Tour Event. The event will play on the same courses that many of you may have played in the 2009 Worlds tournament. The event is going to be a combined Pro/Am event, with the Pro side of the field playing 4 rounds on courses over three days. Those opting for the Amateur side of the event will experience 3 rounds over 2 days.

The Pros will start out on Friday with rounds at Water Works park. The course features challenging elevation and picturesque views of the Missouri and Kaw Rivers and the downtown skyline, and demands attention at every curve for one round. The other course on Friday will be just across the river at Cliff Drive, with a combination of wooded technical shots and some open air distance to challenge all aspects of your talent level.

Moving on to Saturday, where tee-times will play in for the remainder of the weekend, you will be playing at the Blue Valley course that has made friends and foes in its short time. At over 11,000’ of continually changing elevation and fast greens, this demanding course has challenged players for the last decade to test their own ability and prove their mettle.

The final round will be played on Sunday at Swope Park, and you might think that Kansas City's oldest course is a safe bet for an easy finish. Well...don’t be fooled: this course will be expanded into a longer format using alternate tee pads and mind-tingling OB. The tournament layout puts this course into the modern age while preserving the enjoyment, comforts and tranquility that this course has now offered for over three decades. A great day of fun and festivities will follow. We hope to draw nearly 1,000 people to watch the final rounds, as the top touring Pros visit Kansas City yet again. The Pro Field will be limited to 144 players.

The Amateur side of the event will be playing on Saturday and Sunday, and will play on the same courses that the Pro field played on Friday. Water Works and Cliff Drive will be in the mix, along with historic Rosedale Park. With this park, placement is essential, as there bluffs and drop-offs that make errant shots on 13 of the 18 holes a strong possibility of climbing up some big hills. The Ams will be utilizing a shot gun start all weekend long, and will be teeing off earlier on Sunday to give them all a chance to make it out to Swope to catch quite a few of the rounds of the top in the game. This event will also mark the first time that the event is a Trophy-only event for the Amateur side, and the player's packs will be stocked with items that will make everyone glad that they came to the event, along with providing a challenge of competition on the highest level between multiple divisions. The Am Field is limited to 216, so please ensure that you sign up and don’t miss this opportunity.

The event is going to be yet again a fine showing of some of the best disc golf courses in the country. Although there are many disc golf courses that are great across the land, we feel very fortunate that many historic events and moments have came from events in Kansas City. With one of the most central locations to get to across the country, we are confident that this event will be yet another fine example of great players playing a great game. The courses will be prepared and the cameras will be on, as www.discgolfplanet.tv will be showing the event as well. The play will be fierce with competition, yet good times will still be possible with the hospitality that many have came to associate with Kansas City through their own history of events in our town. Be a part of the myth and lore that Kansas City has: come join us for the 29th annual Kansas City Wide Open, and create your own fond memories, or get rid of some old nightmares by extracting revenge on that course again.

Man, disc golf is the safe place in KC right now.....Skateboarders have been the injured ones lately, i kid was shot in KS, but the High Powered Shawnee Mission School District, was supposed to be a rumble, to cousins/brothers brought a gun and shot and killed a 16 yr old. 2 places have since pulled the skate parks, as they are starting gang activity.....thats the "safe parts" of KC area.....

Anyway with your game, you'll be in the woods enough to not warrant being out in firing range.... :lol: :shock:

Do all Ams get a trophy or just the winners?

In the hope that you realize the way that the question is phrased.....not all am's will receive a trophy, but will receive most of the "payout" in the players pack, and there will not be a "prize payout", but more than one will receive an award in divisions that are aligned well.....

Based on some responses from people in here I have extended the online registration to go through WEDNESDAY. After Monday you will need to call me to discuss possibly getting into the event.

We will not be taking day of registration, but in certain cases rules can be broken if you notify me that you are planning on attending in advance so your name is on a sheet.....get the hint?

I hope that you are planning on heading to the event and hope to see you down here next weekend!

Thanks,

Jack
