1st Annual Wounded Warrior Open

This year we are pleased to host the Wounded Warrior Open at War Memorial Park in Oak Grove, Kentucky, Saturday,August 12th and announce that we will be doing a Disc Golf presentation at the National Amputee Conference in Louisville on August 5th . These additions will help us expand our horizons and offer Disc Golf to veterans and active serviceman who are dealing with physical or mental challenges. Disc Golf is easy to play and excellent recreational therapy. It combines the fun of Frisbee toss with the strategy of ball golf. Our free clinic will teach the basics and is customized to the individual’s abilities and needs and how to find a course near you. Your contributions help fund our Tournament and raise money for the Wounded Warrior project.

Our Tournament Director, amputee Disc Golfer Randy Mecca, puts 30+ years of Disc Golf experience into an event that will get you started in this great lifetime sport. “I have been working with people with disabilities for over 20 years but “When I introduced my son-in-law who suffers from PTSD to Disc Golf, a light went off !” “Disc Golf could help soldiers returning from duty with disabilities”. I was inspired to reach out to Veterans and soldiers currently serving. All players will receive event Disc and T-shirt.
Entry fee is $25 for adults ($20 with military ID or Veteran ID card) and Juniors are just $5
