The Siouxland Tour disc golf tournament finals will be held Saturday, Oct. 10, at the Okoboji Gold Disc Golf Course in Kenue Park.
All ages of disc golfers are invited to play in this two-round tournament, which tees off at 10 a.m. Oct. 10.
Players can register 8:30-9:30 a.m. for either youth or adult divisions, and adults will be flighted — ranked by skill level — after the first 18-hole round of play. Registration is $10, and the tournament will feature 100 percent cash payouts as well as other prizes from local businesses.
The Siouxland Tour finals completes a season of tournaments held throughout the area, from Sanborn to Brandon, SD, to South Sioux City, NE. Tour participants receive a point per the percentage of the field they beat in each event. For example, someone who beats 100 percent of the field gets 100 points, while a player that wins over 20 percent of the field is awarded 20 points.
Points will be awarded in the Okoboji finals as well, however, participants in this tournament need not have played in other tour tournaments to play Oct. 10.
The Siouxland Tour held its finals at the Dickinson County Conservation Board’s Okoboji Golf course in 2014 as well.
“We had a good turnout last year,” said naturalist Charles Vigdal. “We have a fantastic disc golf course with 18 holes and two levels of tees. It’s a very challenging course which makes it really fun to play.”
The conservation board is happy to have the tournament back this year.
“It’s neat we have a Siouxland Tour with all of these disc golf courses hosting their own tournaments, and we’re proud to host the finals of this tour,” Vigdal said.
