4th Annual Mudslide – May 4th, 2014

April 3, 2014

The tournament directors of the Mud Slide at the Cove, are crazy.

On May 4th, they want you to play TWO rounds, in ONE day, at the privately owned Alcove Disc Golf Course.

Situated in the most breathtaking disc golf environment you could imagine, the Stacie Sivyer designed Alcove Disc Golf Course will put your disc golf game to the test. Its holes command a full bag of tricks. The lines are awe-inspiring; greens are nasty; danger is abundant; and, the Orpheus like tonals can be heard singing across the topography. Awesome. There really is nothing like it.

Two rounds. One day. A true player vs. course.

We take it back; they’re not crazy…you are, if you aren’t there.
