The Orangeburg Disc Golf Club sponsored its Second Annual Disc Golf Tournament on Saturday, August 16 at the Disc Golf Course at Edisto Gardens in Orangeburg. The 18 “target” course is owned and operated by the City of Orangeburg Parks and Recreation Department.

Disc Golf, also known as Frisbee Golf, is a fast growing sport in America and here in South Carolina. The sport is played with much the same rules as regular golf, but instead of clubs and ball, discs are used and instead of holes, the targets are metal baskets on pedestals.

The Orangeburg Disc Golf Course offers a very challenging course as attested to professional and amateur golfers this past weekend. Some, coming as far away as Texas, Michigan, North Carolina, Florida and other states were excited about the course and the tournament. Several thunder showers delayed the game somewhat, but the last two – three targets (or holes) of the first round were played in the rain. Even though some players became very wet, it didn’t dampen the spirit of the golfers. The picnic shelter where registration, lunch and awards were held was filled with good sportsmanship and laughter.

Felicia Scott, daughter of Janice and Ronnie Barr of Orangeburg, began the opening ceremony by singing the National Anthem, followed with prayer by one of the members.

Interviews with several of the golfers during lunch break all revealed much the same sentiment. Rene Granados, President of the Upstate Disc Golf Club admitted, “The last fifteen minutes of the first round definitely messed up my game.” However, he ended up winning the Open Pro Division with a score of 103. Not won easily, though, he had to work for it and the victory was won only after a “Sudden Life” playoff.

Erock Jones and David Cote of the same club both said the course was very challenging. Cote added, “Keeping my mind on the game and playing the rain was difficult, but I would rather play in the rain than the wind.” He said the course was tight and long.

Jon Kusiak, from Lansing Michigan, is in South Carolina working at Trophy Lakes on Johns Island, Charleston, South Carolina. “I teach kids to water ski and this is my second summer here.” He loves playing disc golf, and said a course is being added to Trophy Lakes and will be ready by Labor Day, in addition to waterskiing and wakeboarding already there. Of the Orangeburg Disc Golf Course, he said, “The course is very challenging, but very fun!”

Mark Gill is from Key Largo, Florida. He majored in Environmental Recreational Management and learned about the tournament on the Professional Disc Golf Association web site on the internet.

Ronnie Barr said, “I played golf before I discovered disc golf and since the Orangeburg Disc Golf Course opened, I have only played regular golf a few times” He also added that it was terrific exercise and he experienced healthful benefits from playing.

Only two women competed in the tournament on Saturday, however, many women play. One lady, Irene, of NC said she played with her husband and actually was playing first and got him started with disc golf, but did not play in the tournaments. Tim “Shade” Hogg, President of the Orangeburg Disc Golf Club, said he would like to see many more women play.
