JONESBORO, ARK: Officials from the Play It Again Sports Jonesboro Open – Presented by Prodigy and the Disc Golf Pro Tour are pleased to announce the tournament is going to be moved from a Phase I event to a Phase II event. This change means the Jonesboro Open, with a large open course and spectator areas, will be the first Elite Series event on the Disc Golf Pro Tour to welcome spectators back in 2021.
Although spectators will be allowed, there are some precautions that will remain in place for the tournament, including limiting the number of spectators and minimizing the contact between spectators and players.
There will be two different types of Spectator Passes available: VIP Pass and a Regular Pass. Only those with a VIP Pass will be allowed to walk and follow players on the course. All other spectators will be limited to viewing areas on the property. Those viewing areas include behind the first hole tee box, behind the first hole basket, near the fourth hole’s basket and “Party Hill”.
The VIP Pass will include a weekend-long pass to enter the tournament, a Disc Side of Heaven koozie, a personalized badge, a lanyard and a D2 400 Spectrum custom-stamped disc from Prodigy. Those with VIP Passes will be able to choose to follow the MPO Chase Card, MPO Lead Card and/or the FPO Lead Card. The VIP Passes will be $75 each, and there will only be 100 available.
Regular Spectator Passes will be $10 for a Daily Pass or $20 for a Weekend Pass. The Weekend Pass is good for admission all three days of the tournament. There will be 250 Weekend Passes available and 100 Daily Passes per day. All Spectator Passes will be available exclusively on-line starting Friday, April 2, at 10:00 a.m. Central Time. To get to the link, go to JonesboroOpen.com and hit the button that says, “For Tickets”.
Those that are playing on the Amateur side of the Jonesboro Open will not be required to purchase a Spectator Pass to watch from the viewing areas. Amateur players are allowed to purchase VIP passes if they want the opportunity to follow out on the course and get the commemorative items.
As with all areas of this year’s event, a portion of the proceeds from the passes will go to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
