Discs will be flying at the Battle 4 the Chains Hamilton Open, a disc golf tournament set for November 24 at the Galloway-Hammond Disc Golf Course in Burnet. The first twist of the wrist lets fly at 9 a.m. with a shotgun start — after 7-8 a.m. mandatory player check-in and an 8:30 a.m. mandatory player meeting.

The tournament features two rounds of play for a maximum of 80 disc golfers. This is an official Pro/Am PDGA C-Tier Event. C-tier events are run in one day on a local course with a minimal amount of staff and volunteers. Professional Disc Golf Association membership is not required to compete.

Disc golf resembles regular golf, only played in the air with discs rather than balls. Instead of strokes, players compete for the fewest throws to make a basket rather than a hole.

Twenty player divisions will be represented. Registration fees range from $60 for the MPO Open to $30 for Junior Girls 12. (A $10 additional fee is charged for those with current PDGA memberships.)

The Highland Lakes boasts multiple disc golf courses, including Galloway-Hammond Recreation Center, which is located at 1601 S. Water St. in Burnet. Here’s 101 Fun Things to do in the Highland Lakes’s complete list and details of the other courses.
