The Mississippi Coast Disc Golf Addicts proudly presents -

Marsh Madness 2012

Schedule and Format:

Saturday, March 10th at Shepard State Park in Gautier MS. Registration opens at 7:00 AM. A brief players meeting will follow the conclusion of registration at 9:00am and the first round will tee off at 9:30 AM.

All divisions will play the established tee locations, except for novices and juniors. They will play a mixture of the established tees and shorter "Red" tees on certain holes. Red tees will be clearly marked.

Tee time for the second round will be 1 hour after the last score card is turned. An awards ceremony will follow the second round once the final scores have been tallied. All CTP prizes, awards, merchandise and cash won by players will be presented at the awards ceremony.

Entry Fees

Pro Divisions:
Pro Open - $35
Pro Women - $35
Pro Masters - $35
Pro Masters Women - $35
Pro Grandmasters - $35
Pro Senior Grandmasters - $35

Amateur Divisions:
Advanced - $27
Advanced Masters - $27
Am Men - $27
Am Women - $27
Novice - $20
Junior - $20


Payouts and Extras

33% of all divisions will be paid.
There will be CPTS, Long Drive Contest, and a Ring of Fire.

Vegas style Ace Pot, $1 thru $5. Throw-off (if necessary) will be held while the scores are being tallied after the second round.

*Vegas Style means that you can put in $1-$5 into the ace pot. If an ace is hit during the tournament they take the money (multiple aces split it). If no ace is hit then you have a throw off as usual but you get to throw as many times as dollars you put in. Don't forget to write on the envelope how many dollars you put in.

The first 90 players that sign up will receive a Hot Stamped Disc (Nuke ESP, Sure Grip Surge, Avenger ESP, Predator, or Omega Super Soft Putter)

Thanks man! We have been working hard. Moe has been great on helping give some great ideas on them. The Pro Tees we are adding will be a nice change to go with the original boxes and should offer a interesting 2nd round. We are playing at Bucc tomorrow morning if you want to join.

Is this still on?

Some folks were playing Shepard today and noticed the flyer was removed. Then they were told by park officials that the tournament was not going to happen cause the park was not secured (reserved & paid for) by anyone for that day.

Is that true?

If so, that bites. This is the nearest course to me & I was really looking forward to an easy to attend tournament.

More info please.
Re: Marsh Madness 2012 - Shepard State Park

It is still going on. It was not handled properly by the Park Ranger. He had never had to handle a Tournament but everything has been worked out. It's on for sure!
