Smuggs Fall Fest a Great Way to try Disc Golf for the First Time

The 1st Annual Smuggs Fall Fest is under two weeks away and preparations are reaching their final stages! The final schedule has been released and is posted for all to peruse. It includes a great event at the near by Cambridge Elementary School, the Jeffersonville Village Fair, that is designed to teach disc golf to any and all newcomers to the sport. It will also serve as competitor’s first chance to check in to the weekend tournament. Check out the schedule below:

The Thursday event in Jeffersonville is a Village Fair that will feature food, music, games (including a kids zone) and of course, disc golf! This is a perfect event for those who have never played the game of disc golf as free clinics are being offered every 30 minutes from 4:30-6:00pm. Five of the top ten players in the world will be in attendance to give the students of Cambridge Elementary School tips on how to play and why disc golf is so much fun! The clinic running from 5:30-6:00pm will be open for adults to learn as well! For those wanting a more structured disc golf lesson, Avery Jenkins and Simon Lizotte will be running a Deep in the Game clinic that requires pre-registration. For more info and to register, go HERE.

Player’s can immediately take what they have learned and use it by trying our Downtown Disc Golf Course presented by Backcountry Magazine! It will be a beginner’s course departing from the school and running through the fields of a nearby facility. Formerly Windridge Tennis Center, the property is being remade into a wellness hub for the area and will have a fun disc golf layout set up for all to play, for FREE! The course will be open starting at 4:30pm and run until dusk. However, event goers should be sure not to miss the Long Drive Contest, sponsored by Innova Disc Golf. Did we mention that five of the top ten players in the world would be in attendance? Well they will all be competing in the distance competition, and with the ability to throw over 600 ft, this will be a spectacle not to miss! You can get involved by betting on your favorite player. Just buy a raffle ticket and place it in the jar of the player you think will win. If they throw farthest, you will have the chance to win a pair of skis from Backcountry Magazine!

While there is plenty of disc golf action, there will also be food vendors, local artists and other businesses, set up for guests to check out. Families of CES will have access to a discounted meal deal, and there will be a kids zone set up featuring one of Smugglers’ favorite characters, the Friendly Pirate to go along with games from the Smugglers’ Notch Country Fair. The event will wind down just after 8pm, so make sure you get there early to learn about the great game of disc golf and to have some good old fashioned fun!
