JONESBORO, AR – The Play It Again Sports Jonesboro Open presented by Prodiscus, the third stop on the 2019 Disc Golf Pro Tour, has announced partnerships with Lost Pizza Co. and Jonesboro Cycle & ATV as new Naming Sponsors.
The putting green area will be known as the “Lost Pizza Putting Green” while the welcome area will become the “Jonesboro Cycle & ATV Welcome Tent”.
Because of the event’s growth, tournament organizers decided to move the putting green away from the first tee box and to a more-isolated area. It will now be behind the Festival of the Flying Discs and give the competitors a quieter place to warm up. The area will be marked by signs indicating the Lost Pizza Putting Green. Naming the putting green will give Lost Pizza, located at 906 Southwest Drive in Jonesboro, a chance to be in front of every professional and amateur player in the field.
Jonesboro Cycle & ATV, located at 2800 Fair Park Blvd, has been involved with the tournament since year one by donating various 4-wheel drive vehicles for the tournament staff to use. This year they have agreed to be the Naming Sponsor for the Welcome Tent, which is where every player and spectator will enter and leave during the tournament. Jonesboro Cycle & ATV will also continue to supply the tournament staff with vehicles during the week.
Tournament Director Brad Pietz said the latest agreements are “the icing on the cake” in terms of sponsorships for 2019.
“During the 2018 tournament, I had 10-to-12 different people seek me out and say they wanted to be involved next year. These two companies both mentioned to us last year that they wanted to be more involved in 2019,” Pietz said. “This event is doing great things for Jonesboro, and to have the number of sponsors we have this year is a true testament that others feel the same way.”
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 April 12-14 at the Disc Side of Heaven course near RidgePointe Country Club and at Craighead Forest Park.
