Gleason's First Disc Golf Tournament Held at Huggins Park

 

 As a result of a generous gift from the West Tennessee Disc Golf Club to the Gleason Downtown Revitalization Program and City of Gleason's Park and Recreation department and, with the help of Mr. Luke Hughes of Gleason, it has been possible to develop a disc golf course at Gleason's Huggins Park for use by the people of Gleason and the surrounding area.

 

The design and development of the course was under the direction of  Mr. Luke Hughes, of Gleason, along with Chris Dodson, Will Trimble and Kent Fothergill, all of whom are actively involved with this rapidly growing sport.

 

The course is open to all Gleason citizens who are interested in the sport and was set up to allow for competitive disc golf tournaments for players of all ages.

 

Sponsored by the Gleason Downtown Revitalization Program, Gleason's first disc golf tournament, the "TaterTown Throwdown" was held on Saturday, May 23, 2015.

 

Registration for the tournament began at 1:30. The registration fee was $10, which included a free disc, bearing the "TaterTown Throwdown" logo. All funds derived from this event will be used to support Gleason Downtown Revitalization efforts.

 

Prior to beginning the tournament, a disc golf workshop was conducted by Tournament Director Luke Hughes. This pre-tournament training session was open to all registrants and  served as an introduction to the basics of disc golf, including rules of the game, disc golf fundamentals, and an introduction to the new Huggins Park course.

 

The tournament itself began at 3:30 and lasted for several hours, with the 36 participants  playing varying numbers of holes, depending on their age.

 

The concession stand was open, serving water, soft drinks, hamburgers, cheese burgers, bologna  and various other tasty edibles.

 

Certificates were given for outstanding play in both the "Novice" and more "Advanced" disc golf participants.

 

It is hoped that this inaugural tournament will stimulate participants to come out to Huggins Park and use the facilities to develop their disc golf skills and enjoy playing the course with friends over the summer.

 

Be sure to check GleasonOnline.com regularly for announcements of other disc golf tournaments that may be offered this summer.
