Ludington Hosts 22nd Annual Disc Golf State Championship

Posted: Updated:

This weekend hundreds of the state's top 'disc golfers' will compete in Ludington.

The 22nd Annual Discraft Michigan Disc Golf State Championships kick off on Friday.

This is the 18th year the tournament has happened in Ludington.

Disc golf has exploded in popularity in the last twenty years, but it was invented in the sixties. 

Organizers of the tournament invite the public out to follow the players around one of the six Ludington area courses.

Mason county has become a magnet for the growing sport.

Many Ludington area disc golfers play year round. They wear snow shoes in the winter and tie ribbons to their discs to pull them out of the drifts.
