The tenth annual Lizard Range Disc Golf Tournament went off without a hitch last weekend.

Boasting it would go on regardless of sun, rain or snow, the tenth annual Lizard Range Disc Golf Tournament went off without a hitch. Competitors from far and wide came to try their hands on the course at James White Park last Saturday.

Elijah Isacc, top Canadian from the Canadian Nationals Competition held in Kamloops last week, was amongst the competitors who came from Calgary, Montana, Oregon and Cranbrook.

Canmore resident, Mike Minifie commented on the addictive quality of the sport. “It’s a mixture of somewhere in between comic books and video games but healthier than both.”

The sport of disc golf is play just like traditional golf with the exception that discs are thrown and the target is a “basket”.

After the Elk River flood many volunteers donated their time to getting the course in James White Park back into great shape for the tournament. Tournament organizer and course designer, Serge Gosselin, thanked everyone who helped to make this year’s event possible.

Established in 2004, the course is an 18-hole course with Mach 3 baskets on the front nine and Innova DISCatcher Pros on the back nine. The course is located on what is usually a well manicured city park surrounded by cottonwoods with tight wooded fairways, lots of out of bounds (paths/roads) with a length of 4800 ft. Overall the course is not extremely long, but does require very accurate tee shots with 13 holes being under 300 ft, and the other five being between 300-400 ft.
