Expecting a break in the weather, Volo Disc Sports is hosting the Jekyll & Hyde Classic disc golf tournament on Saturday and Sunday, April 27 and 28, in Norfolk. The event is sanctioned by the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) with a draw of players from several states. This is the third stop of the Volo Ocho disc golf tour across Nebraska this season. Two rounds of  will be played at the River Run Disc Golf Cours in TaHaZouka Park on Saturday followed by a players party Michael’s Cantina. Sunday morning competition will continue with two rounds at Skyview Park Disc Golf Course.

$1,000 bonus has been added to the prize pay out to the professional divisions. Registration is available in person at TaHaZouka Park beginning at 7:30am on Saturday or in advance at volodiscsports.com. Cost ranges from $20 for players under 16 years of age in the amateur division to $60 for the Professional Open division. As a course preview a team doubles tournament is scheduled at Skyview Park on Friday, April 26, beginning at 4:00pm.

Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970’s and the course at Skyview Park was installed in 2002 followed by the River Run disc golf course at Taha Zouka Park. There are over 70 courses in Nebraska hosting over 40 tournaments. Players range in age from school age to seniors making it one of the greatest lifetime fitness sports available. Because disc golf is so easy to learn no one is excluded. Beginners start with one or two discs costing as little as $12 each. Volo Disc Sports is an online disc sport retailer in Nebraska.
