Clearwater, Florida: Sun-N-Fun Festival Disc Golf Tournament At Coachman Park
Sunday marked the end of the 2010 Sun-N-Fun Festival Disc Golf Tournament in Clearwater, at Coachman Park. The weather was great for flinging discs, and it seemed like most people had a really good time. I got to learn a little more about disc golf, a rapidly growing sport indeed! This sport is going nuts. Let me say this to folks reading this article, if you don't already have a disc golf course in your town right now, you can just about bet that one is in the works, or will be soon. It's just plain fun, and very, very accessible to anyone who wants to have some fun. And let's not ignore the style factor! Check out the player in the picture above. I love his style, both putting and fashion.

But don't get me wrong, these folks are also very serious about their game, in a good way. They have some of the funnest gear, like the buggies you see in the photo above. I mean, how many of you would LOVE an excuse to cruise around with that buggy, complete with a Tommy Bahama umbrella? Talk about living large!! I love it!

Hats off to the various sponsors who came out to support the sport! One of my favorites was Night Flight Disc Golf, owned by my friend Dan. He had a great idea for playing disc golf after dark, followed by more and more ideas, and he is working hard to bring his ideas to everyone who enjoys the sport. Check out his website, NightFlightDiscGolf.com, and you will see what I mean about his ideas. Really cool stuff if you ask me.

There he is, below, standing in his booth with the rest of his gang, Fanchon in the middle, and Chris, seated at right. He's a great guy with some excellent products, so look for him at Disc Golf events around the area here, and ask for his product at your favorite Disc Golf shops.

Another sponsor of the Sun-N-Fun Tournament was Sun King Disc Sports, recently moved from Brooksville to Sarasota. They have lots of good product for you to check out.

While I was poking about with my camera, I met Shawn Harrigan, who explained to me that this tournament was a part of the statewide Fabulous Florida Disc Golf Tour 2010. Click on over to their website if you'd like to review the results from this past weekend's tournament.

If you got a chance to enjoy the action at Coachman Park this past weekend, be sure to let them know at the Fabulous Florida Tour that you think Tournament Director Curtis Nuttin-But-Chains Minton did a great job. Because he did!

Oh, and if you are interested in getting involved, but not sure where to start, I would surf on over to the Tampa Bay Disc Sports Club, for a local take on the sport. They have information on local courses, as well as event listings and more.
