I apologize that I was not able to stay and create the Am prize packages for last year's SRC. As a result, some places were not prized out as generously as I would normally have done.. (and I worked to correct this in the week after the event).
Well this year we are back in a bigger way, with the beefiest prize packages ever for all you SRC Am's! For the very first time, (as stated above), we have several boxes of Innova custom stamped SRC discs, and a variety of other prizes enroute from the Innova store.
Trophies will be awarded for the top three places in each division that we anticipate to have three or more competitors.. ie. all Pros, Adv Ams, and Int Ams. (Plus 1st place trophies will be awarded to a few divisions that may happen to only have one or two competitors).
Let's hope the later date in May, will produce a gorgeous day! (Fingers crossed)
Thanks for hosting another awesome event at Swards! I just registered.

Trophies for places 1-3 in Open, Master, Grandmaster, Advanced Am, and Intermediate Am.
A 1st place trophy available for Top Woman player, and a 1st place trophy will be available for 3 other divisions.
Again ALL you players (Ams And Pros) get your choice of the custom stamped player's pack disc.. choice of KC Pro Roc, KC Pro Aviar, or JK Pro Aviar.
#1 Advanced Am = Innova Disc Catcher Sport Basket
All other places= get a healthy mix of..
Custom Stamped SRC Discs
Along with Innova Shirts, hats, and towels sprinkled in.
A few of us from Spokane are talking about coming over to play this tourney. Any suggestions on course, flight characteristics (elevation issues), ETA out of MIssoula, you locals can help us out with???
It looks like there is alot of HEAD room for bigger drivers on the course is that true? What are the OB lines like if there are any (I still have nightmares about Kamas Hot Springs --9ppp, 12pppp )
What is par on the course.... the info on the net is pretty slim.
I looked up the scores last year from the tourney...I am guessing 59 or 60 is par .. so like 5-6 PAR 4's on the course?
Would love some info..Thanks guys!
The par for the course, might be set 58, or 59 and maybe 60. Last year we labeled it as 7900 feet.. More on this
I cannot think of one hole that is not open off the tee. The only gaps you have to hit, would be if you get into some trees or rocks (off the designated fairway) after your tee shot.
On many days, the weather, mostly in the form of strong winds, can be a factor. There are a few holes that involve some healthy elevated pins from the tee, and a few holes with pins that involve a healthy drop in elevation from the tee. Most of the holes are close to the same elevation as their tees - however, the fairway may include throwing across a steep gully, so if you do not get the distance you need or your disc fades one way or the other too much, you will then be faced with an elevated pin for your upshot.
There is no OB.. however, a disc that lands on a rock structure that is too steep to walk up, needs to be left.. while taking relief at the first safe place to stand nearby and behind that spot.. without penalty. This is to limit the exposure of people climbing on dangerous locations.
Click HERE for a map of the course.
Here is Latitude and Longitude of tee box #1
Using that, you can jump on google earth and observe the elevation changes as you move around based on the map..
The Spokane crew is wondering what time they should leave from Missoula on Saturday morning to make it in time to SRC..by say, 9:00am.. what travel times do you guys in Zootown use?
Leave by 5:30am?
This is a one-of-a-kind DG experience and definitely merits a trip over from Spokane! As you can see from the photos in the thread, the property is ridiculously spectacular and is smack in the middle of some of the best mountain scenery around. It might be the sweetest piece of private property I've ever seen that hosts a disc golf tournament. Weather is variable, as it should be for the location. I love the golf course, but it's only half the attraction: Norris Hot Springs (www.norrishotsprings.com) is just awesome and is right there waiting after a day of hiking with music, food, beer, and hot water, and there are great camping options nearby as well.
There are a few true Par 4s and a few long 3s, but I wouldn't say the course is overly favorable to big arms. You'll have plenty of opportunities to throw your big drivers but the score variation will come from elsewhere--upshots and scoring on the gettable birdies. And, for a "mountain" golf course, it is actually pretty flat...the mountains surround the property but the property is on the flats. As Craig said, what a good score is depends on the wind conditions...anything in the 50s is really solid in windy conditions or for amateur divisions. We've had years with absolutely zero wind and years where the wind adds at least 5-6 throws to everyone's score.
I haven't missed it in years...but it's on my wife's birthday this year, so we'll see
We(HDGC) are still debating between 58-59-60..
The tourney bug has bitten hard this year, and as much as I tried to say no wot my work today...I broke down and nodded yes when they asked me to close Friday night. This does not rule out the drive over, and after reading CD's description (???is this guy in sales or law or something like that..???) you just about sold me on driving that night after I get off work and toughing through the challenge. I will keep you guys posted and look for Spokane registers...
THanks again for the information!
