$3 Acepot (Optional)

All amateur players will receive a players pack

This is a fundraiser for the Mining City Disc Golf Club so there will be $3 per player deducted that will go to the Club for course improvements.


There is camping available approximately 10 miles from the course further up the canyon at Toll Mountain Campground. I 'think' its a free Forest Service campground.

Most hotels are already booked up due to the Folk Festival.


Parking is allowed only in the designated parking lots and along the right hand side of the loop road ONLY. There will be very limited parking at the lot near the course, so we are directing people to park at the trailhead parking lot and walk over to the course. There will be signage on site to direct people when you arrive.

The Montana Folk Festival is going on in Butte that weekend. It is a free festival that shuts down most of uptown Butte with 5 different stages and brings tens of thousands to Butte for the weekend. Check it out if you can!!! More info on the Folk Festival can be found at http://montanafolkfestival.com/

Lots of good action with Seth White winning Open in a 3 hole playoff over McCoy Connor and Ron Pannesi winning Masters after a 3 way tie forced a playoff with Jeremy Bauer and Shane H.
Big Thanks to Team Lumberjack and Jeremiah Harris for allowing us to use their baskets and transporting them to Butte and back. Also a big shout out to Sarah Coulombe for all the behind the scenes work she did to make this event happen!!
