The Wild West - Aug 25th & 26th, Joliet, IL

Postby acesandchains on Tue Aug 07, 2012 12:13 pm

Am-B/Pro-C PDGA sanctioned tournament

Two 27 hole rounds at Westpark, in Joliet, IL. (3 temp holes)

Westpark is one of the most popular courses in the Joliet area. Hole 2 is an easy shot down from the top of the ridge to the basket below, while hole 11, The Green Mile, is a long shot with a fairway that narrows significantly from the halfway point to the pin. The course plays thru mature oaks. Tee pads are natural.

The current plan is to add the same 3 temp holes between 8 and 10 that we added for Chain Reaction. Each year, we will try to add something to put the "wild" in The Wild West. This year, we will be adding some unique OB lines from holes 6 thru 11, including the temp holes. The current plan is to change hole 11 (The Green Mile) into "Three Mile Island", a monster hole with an island green, and two large islands in the fairway forcing you to plan your landing spot.

Pre-registration is highly encouraged. By pre-registering, you help us run a smoother tournament. You can pre-register at the shop (1706 W. Jefferson St), or online at:

This is the last Aces and Chains PDGA Tournament of the year, and your last chance to add points to your total toward qualifying for the AC Finals.

Players Pack

Postby acesandchains on Mon Aug 13, 2012 8:23 am

Players Pack:

1.) Choice of one tournament stamped disc or one $10 gift card for pre-registered players. (Players who register the day of get the $10 gift card)

2.) Everyone gets two stickers and a tournament poster (artwork by Mike Kursell!)

So, pre-register and get yourself a disc (up to $19 value) instead of the gift card. We ordered Glow Bosses, Glow Destroyers, Glow Sidewinders, and Glow Coyotes for this tournament. You're not limited to those four models though, we have a wall of tournament stamped discs from other tournaments to choose from. Off the top of my head, I know we have Glow Archons, Glow Xcals, Glow Firebirds, Glow Orcs, SS Buzzz's, Z Buzzz'z, Crystal Nukes, Crystal Stalkers, Glow buzzz's, and more.
