SUPERIOR, Wisc. – Wednesday was the starting shot for the annual Lake Superior Open on the brand new course in the Upper City Forest.

“This course went last year. Maybe towards the end of autumn last year. It has a bit of everything. It has long tees and short tees, so it suits all skill levels, ”said Tournament Director Bryan Lagergren.

For many, disc golf is an opportunity to enjoy nature and also get a good workout.

“It’s the great number one exercise. It’s great camaraderie with the other disc golfers. It’s an easy sport to meet new people, and it’s fun as long as you’re frustrated if you’re not doing it badly, ”said Jack Morris, a Monroe Wisconsin resident.

Wednesday and Thursday are flexible starts for players to get used to, with three rounds a day over the weekend and a total of six seats.

“We use four courses at the Mont Du Lac Resort. This course in the urban forest of Superior and the disc golf refuge in Carlton, ”says Lagergren.

With almost four hundred participants, there are disc golfers of all ages and levels.

“So I’m 67 years old. I can play with guys who are 60 and older. I’ve played in Florida, Kentucky, Iowa, Minnesota, Michigan, Indiana, and Tennessee, ”says Morris.

The open division will compete for a cash prize, while the amateurs will also receive their own prize.

“They are paid out in goods so they can exchange their fun money for goods,” says Lagergren

This is one of the last tournaments the organizers will hold as the temperatures are getting colder.
