The Flying Eagle Open

Saturday & Sunday, September 23 & 24, Gypsum

If you've spent the summer perfecting your disc golf game, it's time to show off your skills (or at least watch the pros in action) at the PDGA (yes, that's Professional Disc Golf Association) sanctioned singles tournament in Gypsum. The annual event brings disc golfers from around the state for fierce competition at Gypsum's Hole in the Sky Course, Gypsum Disc Golf Course, and Cross Creek Disc Golf Course, which, combined with the fall colors, should make for some good spectating, too. discgolfscene.com
