  • Thursday, October 17, 2013

The Rise of the Gnome disc golf tournament will be on Saturday. This will be the second disc golf tournament held at Camp Jordan. It will be hosted by Kevin Tuner of the Chattanooga Flying Disc Club.  The CFDC is a local non-profit which promotes youth recreation through disc-related activities, disc golf and ultimate.  

Officials said, "We create opportunities for local families by building disc golf facilities, providing low cost recreation for the community.  We feel that getting the kids off the couch, out from in front of the Gameboys is important to promote healthy outdoor activities with family and friends.  Kids who have health active relationships with their family become our leaders our future."

The CFDC and its members have been active participants in funding and building courses at the Chambliss Home, Carver recreation center and multiple other locations in the area surrounding Chattanooga. Camp Jordan is the newest and largest disc golf course in the area. 

The tournament on Saturday will put on display a huge array of skill sets in disc golf, from some of the best players in the Southeast to players who had only played for a few months.

Rounds will be in play from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. and from approximately 2-5 p.m.
