The Jonesboro Open presented by Prodiscus has roughly the same history as so many other great tournaments… One guys idea to do something big!
I first played disc golf at the age of 12 with my dad at Shreveport’s famed Clyde Fant Parkway, the first course in the state of Louisiana. From that first time, I have always taken disc golf with me through college and around the country as my career moved me from place to place.
Fast forward to 2007 when I first moved to Jonesboro. We had one course and in 2007 the course was grown up and not a lot of fun to play. Now that course, Craighead Forest Park has 27 holes and is in great shape thanks to the Jonesboro Disc Golf Club and we have 36 more holes at Disc Side of Heaven. The Championship Course from the very beginning was designed to bring the best players in the world to Jonesboro… and in 2017 we did just that!
The Jonesboro Open is a group effort by way too many people to name here, but we have a long ways to go! We want you to come be a part of it as a player, as a volunteer or as a spectator. The 2017 Jonesboro Open was a huge success and 2018 is going to be bigger and better.
Come play! Come watch!
