Jonesboro, Arkansas: The Jonesboro Open and the Jonesboro location of Buffalo Wild Wings are excited to announce a partnership for the 2019 Jonesboro Open. Buffalo Wild Wings has agreed to be the official host of the 2019 Jonesboro Open Player’s Party. In 2018 they were an Eagle Sponsor and were a part of the Fly Mart and hole-in-one competition. From that moment they wanted to be more involved have now become the Naming Sponsor of the Player’s Party.
The Buffalo Wild Wings Player’s Party will take place on Friday night, April 12 beginning around 7:30. The putting competition preliminaries will take place on the patio and the first round’s telecast of the Jonesboro Open will be replayed on several of their 64 big screen TVs. Buffalo Wild Wings invites all professional players, amateur players and spectators that come to town to the Player’s Party. It is open to everyone and there will be no cover charge to get in.
Tournament Director Brad Pietz says this is just one more item on the checklist of the tournament plan, “To get the local businesses to start to buy in to what we are bringing to town is very exciting.” Pietz said. “In 2018 we had 222 players from 33 different states and three foreign countries in town for a week. I am very happy to see the tournament making an economic impact to the City of Jonesboro.”
Chris Reed, from the Jonesboro restaurant, had this to say regarding the partnership, “Buffalo Wild Wings strives to be the place for our community to come together to enjoy sports. Whether you are a participant or a spectator, the seasoned pro, or a child bouncing around the crowd to meet their favorite athlete. The Jonesboro Open gives us the opportunity to be just what we were meant to be.” Reed continued, “For the second year in a row, the tournament has let us be a sponsor of the event that brings participants and spectators together. We are excited to be a partner and keep great sporting events coming into our community.”
If you want to watch the Jonesboro Open live on TV instead of in person at Disc Side of Heaven, Buffalo Wild Wings plans to show all live coverage of the tournament the entire weekend on several of their big screen TVs.
This is the fourth season of the Disc Golf Pro Tour and the third year for the Jonesboro Open presented by Prodiscus. The tournament will be held on April 12-14, 2019 at the Disc Side of Heaven Championship Course near RidgePointe Country Club.
