The Disc Golf Pro Tour is moving 45 minutes southwest from Waco to Belton, TX for the third event of the season and the first Silver Series event of 2021. The Open at Belton presented by Discraft will begin tomorrow, March 19, and run through Sunday, March 21.
The Open at Belton, along with all other Silver Series events, are worth 25 percent of the DGPT points that Elite Series events are. While the stakes aren’t as high as Elite Series competition, Belton is shaping up to be a great weekend, with a new course being introduced to amateur players. Pro players will face some challenges with mandos on Holes 6, 8 and 13. An added incentive of $1,000 will be rewarded for a perfect pro round (total round score of 49 for MPO, 55 for FPO).
The men’s division features the likes of Calvin Heimburg, Paul McBeth, Ricky Wysocki, Nikko Locastro, and last year’s Belton MPO champion, Ezra Aderhold.
On the women’s side, Kona Star Panis will look to continue her dominance after securing her first Elite Series win at Waco. To do that, she’ll have to get past Catrina Allen, Jessica Weese, and last year’s Belton champion, Valerie Mandujano. Allen posted a near-perfect round in 2019 at The Open, scoring a 56.
Unfortunately, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, The Open at Belton will be operating in Phase 1. Limited access badges were given to amateur event players, pros and a support person, city officials, sponsors, vendors and staff.
If you are in the Belton area and looking to catch some of the rounds as a spectator, there will be a viewing area outside the restricted course. The viewing area runs along Hole 10 and five holes are clearly visible.
