Free burritos for a year top prize for Qdoba First Annual Frisbee Golf OpenWritten by Andy Ouriel | | email@example.com
Disc golfers will be birdying for burritos and putting for pico de gaillo Saturday, June 12.
Teams of two will compete to shoot for the lowest 36-hole score to win the Qdoba First Annual Frisbee Golf Open.
The tournament starts at 10 a.m. at Carter Park in Bowling Green.
The “mucho bueno” or the winning team will receive free Qdoba burritos for a year.
The tournament is open to any skill level. All entrants must pay $20 which includes the entry fee, T-shirt and a charge to Bowling Green Parks and Recreation.
Qdoba will offer players a $5 burrito lunch special between the two rounds.
Players can still register for the tournament by stopping at Bowling Green’s Qdoba located at 129 S. Main St.
While free food might be the main incentive for golfers to enter the tournament, Qdoba wanted to start this joint venture to associate itself with a very popular sport, said Ganim Shihadeh, co-owner of Qdoba in Bowling Green.
“Why not let Qdoba get involved in a very good community event that everyone can take part in?” Shihadeh said.
Shihadeh, who started playing disc golf seven years ago and plays nearly every day in the summer, said it’s the ultimate sport because people can play for free locally. The main costs to golfers are discs, which usually run between $10 to $30.
By hosting this tournament, Shihadeh hopes to expose the sport to the uninitiated and generate interest among future players.
“I would love to raise awareness to the sport in Bowling Green and all over Ohio,” he said. “I want to create a little buzz around Bowling Green that we are having a disc golf tournament here.”
The tournament is not affiliated with the Professional Disc Golf Association. Players will not be eligible to earn points or money.
The event will be a shotgun-scramble style tournament. Players on each team will alternate shots on each hole. Golfers will also interchange tee shots, with one player teeing off on the odd holes and his or her teammate on the even holes. Players will then switch during the second round.
