*New for 2021* – Men and Women Open and Amateur Categories!

The 2021 Mountain House Disc Golf Tournament is a two (2)-day event. Each athlete will participate in four (4) stroke-play rounds with cumulative score to determine final places. Venues include an 18-hole course at Maloit Park in Minturn, CO and 18-hole course at 4 Eagle Ranch in Wolcott, CO.

As its name implies, disc golf is golf with a flying disc, rather than a ball. The sport was formalized in the 1970’s, and shares with “ball golf” the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws).

IMPORTANT: Registration for this event closes Thursday, June 10 at 6:00 PM. All competitors should be prepared to start at 8:00 AM on Saturday, June 12.
