Chattanooga To Host PDGA Sanctioned Disc Golf Tournament

Thursday, May 15, 2014

The Chattanooga Flying Disc Club will host the first Chatt Town Showdown, a PDGA-sanctioned disc golf tournament set to attract world renowned talent May 24-25.

            The two-day, four-round tournament is expected to bring in 150 players, including Chattanooga’s top professionals as well as those from out of town, such as Nashville’s Will Schusterick, the No.

3 player in the world.

            "This being the first Chatt Town Showdown, the Chattanooga Flying Disc Club is committed to seeing the event draw high caliber competitors from all over the country to visit our community and enjoy its amenities for years to come," said tournament director and CFDC Director of disc golf Scott Snow. “This sport has really grown in our city, and Chattanooga has potential to become one of the top disc golf destinations in the Southeast.”

            This tournament is unprecedented in terms of size and format for Chattanooga and will feature both amateur and professionals of a diverse age range. Spectators are welcome at no cost during the tournament.

            Competitors will test their skills on two courses each day. The Sinks is Chattanooga's oldest course, built in 2005 by the Chattanooga Flying Disc Club, and will challenge the players' abilities to maneuver their discs through the tightly wooded fairways. The course at Camp Jordan, considered to be the most advanced-level course in the area, is the CFDC's most recently completed project and will reveal which players can throw the furthest with the most accuracy.
