The Jonesboro Open is the culmination of a dream. Prior to 2010, Arkansas had 30 disc golf courses. In 2018, they will likely eclipse 100, including two at Disc Side of Heaven in Jonesboro in 2013. The Championship Course at Disc Side of Heaven was designed to challenge the best of the best. In 2017 it did just that. Not only was it the longest course on tour, it also had tremendous elevation changes, water, 100’ wide trees, and tremendous risk reward shots that were a joy to watch as the best players in the world worked through the gorgeous April weather.
Elevation changes of up to 60 feet and old growth oaks await you on most holes. This course is designed so that the hills, the trees and the wind are factors on almost every shot. It is a true test of both physical and mental stamina.
In 2018, Jonesboro welcomes back the Disc Golf Pro Tour. Brad Pietz and crew are excited to host the best players in the world and are looking forward to sharing our little piece of Heaven.
