Tournament History


The last tournament using the "original" Gran Canyon design was run in 2006. The property was sold in late 2008 and the final rounds were played on 11/24, the Monday after the Players Cup. The baskets came out immediately afterwards and speculation and rumors swirled about it's future over the next 4 years. Since then the property was cleaned up to prepare it for residential development but when the housing market bubble burst shortly afterward, the nearly 60-acre plot went undeveloped.

It took Sun King Disc Sports nearly 4 years to get the owner of the property to allow the rebirth event that revived the property, so we are very grateful and humble to get this chance again. As discovered last year, the property has changed dramatically with some areas overgrown, some areas cleared and open and other areas either holding water or have sustained water and wind erosion over the past few years. This is why we have again chosen to use a modified 18-hole layout that features as much of the old course as possible, but also uses some areas that haven't been used since some of the early tournaments or not at all.

Arriving at the Property

  • As one would expect, these events are going to be extremely popular and will more than likely going to sell out. Please be advised that the Friday and Saturday of the event weekends will prove to be extremely busy. To make your check-in goes as smooth as possible please make sure you leave yourself an extra 15-30 minutes to get through the line during peak times and get parked and ready to play. Remember, each vehicle will need to get their parking pass issued and players will need to sign the waiver and receive their wristbands.

  • Note: All Players/Spectators are considered "trespassing" if they have not signed the waiver or have a wristband on. Players/Spectators only need to sign the waiver once per event weekend and must keep their wristbands on during the duration of the event weekend. Replacement wristbands are $1.


Parking & Greens Fees

  • Parking space is extremely limited and we highly encourage players and spectators alike to carpool as much as possible.
  • At this time, there will be no parking allowed along Mondon Hill Rd or Cooper Terrace due to limits in our county issued permit.
  • Parking passes can be purchased at the gate.
    • Daily Pass - $6 per day
    • 4-Day Pass - $12 per event weekend
  • $10/day Greens Fees


Waiver

  • Anyone on the tournament property must sign a waiver releasing all tournament partners of liability of your actions while on the property. Once the waiver is signed, attendees will receive a wrist band that must be wore at all times while on the property. Tournament players will have the opportunity to sign the waiver during the online registration process.


Alcohol

  • Alcohol is permitted on the property by those 21 and older with a valid ID and only in the designated parking lot areas. Cans/plastic bottles or containers only - no glass bottles will be allowed on the property, with both vehicles and attendees subject to a cooler search at any point. Bottles may be confiscated until the owner departs the property. Any repeat offenders will be banned from the property for the duration of the event.


Recycling & Refuse

  • There will be several recycling & refuse stations conveniently located throughout the parking and camping areas allowing attendees the opportunity to properly dispose of aluminum cans, plastic bottles and containers and paper/cardboard products. In addition, anything that doesn't fit into those categories can be placed into refuse bins. We encourage folks coming out to this property to adopt the "pack it in, pack it out" mentality and be prepared to carry out anything that you bring on to the property so that we have a better chance of running events on this magnificent property in the future.

Waiting List & Refunds

  • Any player wishing to get on the waiting list after the event is filled must register online to do so. Calls to the Sun King Discs shop will be redirected to the website. If any players drop from the event, the next player in line on the waiting list will be contacted and have 48 hours to register for the event. This time is subject to be reduced as the event nears. Refunds are eligible to any player that withdraws and directly contacts the TD, Mike Barnett, or calls the Sun King shop before the Doubles tee time on the tournament weekend. Refunds will be given as a net amount (credit card processing fees will not be refunded). Players who do not show up for the tournament will lose their entire registration fee but will be eligible for any players package items they were to receive.
