  • 2nd Annual Yak Town Throw Down

    On line registration is now open for the 2nd Annual Yak Town Throw Down at 4discgolf.com. This is a 1 day WSS, PDGA sanctioned c-tier event at the new Wide Hollow Creek Disc Golf Course at Randall Park in beautiful, sunny, Yakima Washington. Saturday August 17th is the day of the event. We will also have a Friday night doubles on Friday August 16th. Camping available for those of you who are coming from out of town. Our course is looking pretty good right now. We have baskets in the ground and new tee signs installed just this week. Tee pads are going to be finished soon. Hope to see you all there. Especially the Lake Stevens Crew and The Way Outz Team!

    As a new course and new tournament here in Yakima, what is it that would make you want to come and play here? What are you looking for in a tournament? Players packs? Payouts? Atmosphere? Ambiance? I aim to make our events as exciting and enticing as possible for all who play. Im just curious to know what others are looking for in a tournament. Any feedback would be appreciated so that we as an organization can present the players with what they want. Thanks.

      A cooler tournament director would be a good start! Other than that, after playing the course last Friday, I think it will be a blast playing there.

          Just a few suggestions my grass roots friend....

          - My nominal appearance fee - $$$

          - Prefunk the day before

          - Lots of optional side bets & frisbee shenanigans

          - Authentic provided lunch

          - An opportunity to secure an ever so gaining in popularity environmentally friendly water bottle

          - Country and/or Rasta music blaring whenever possible

          - A Kick A** after party w/ Beersbie

          - Miner Burger Coupon

          - Printed Directions from Tourney Central to the Vantage/Gorge short cut bypass

            We will have 2 rounds of 18 holes. We will be borrowing 9 temporary baskets for our event and will have a different layout than last year. This year we are trying to make more use of the creek area and incorporate more of the trees and other natural obstacles. We will be hosting a Friday Night Doubles event on the 16th for those who want to check out the course early. The entire 18 hole course will be set up all day Friday for those that want a sneak peak of the layout. As far as a cooler TD, well you can beat perfection so why try? We are working on securing sponsors and accepting hole sponsorships as we speak. Camping will be available for those who are coming from out of town. Let me know if there is anything else you would all like to see.

                    The 2nd annual Yak Town Throw Down is only a couple of weeks away. August 17th to be exact. 2 rounds of 18 at Wide Hollow Creek Disc Golf Course in beautiful, sunny, warm, Yakima. Registration is open at 4discgolf.com. We have great prizes to raffle off including a brand new pair of ski's valued at $1000, thanks to one of our sponsors, Hart Ski's. Dutch Brothers, Liberty Bottle Works, Sporthause, Rush Espresso, Jacksons Sports Bar are just a few of the awesome sponsors for this years event. The full 18 hole layout will be available on Friday, August 16th all day long with a doubles event scheduled for that evening starting at 6 p.m. Free camping is available again this year as well as a players party and bbq. This is a pdga sanctioned, c-tier event. Last east side qualifier for the WSS. Feel free to contact me via email or over the phone with any questions. Hope to see you all there.

                      Born 2 Be Fly is signed up as one of our sponsors as well. We just finished up 2 hard days of clear cutting and brush removal in order to bring you the best possible 18 hole layout. Everything is complete and I think we have a winner for the layout. Its gonna be pretty sweet this year. Think water hazards and tight lines. Open holes for the big arms and some technical shots for the rest of us. All in all its a good mix of holes. I think you will all be stoked. Hope to see you all there.

                        I remember when Randall park was put in. Or atleast, I think I remember it.

                              Also a reminder that online registration, which is at 4discgolf.com, closes on Wednesday August 14th at midnight. We will be taking registration for the tournament on Friday the 16th and Saturday the 17th as well, but it will cost you an extra $5. The $5 goes directly towards our next set of 9 baskets for the Wide Hollow Creek Disc Golf Course.
