Buckle up, the Disc Golf Pro Tour now heads to Texas for the Waco Annual Charity Open presented by Prodigy.
The second stop of the 2023 season promises better weather and the return of a couple of familiar faces. While the Las Vegas Challenge forced players to contend with cold temperatures and ripping winds, calmer conditions in Waco will give players the opportunity to focus on shaping their shots through the woods and showcasing their distance in the open along the Brazos River in central Texas.
Both the MPO and FPO fields will play all three rounds at Brazos Park East (nicknamed The BEast). This course was first featured on the DGPT in 2017 after being redesigned in 2014. In stark contrast to the wide-open fairways of the Vegas courses, Brazos Park East features shorter holes and tight lines through dense woods. Holes 4 through 12 in particular force players to carve their way through narrow gaps between the trees, showcasing what makes disc golf a unique sport more so than the rolling hills and sand traps of a ball golf style course.
Since the challenging nature of Brazos Park East comes from accuracy rather than distance, many holes have identical pars and tee pad locations for both the FPO and MPO fields. Fans can look forward to watching their favorite players attacking the same holes in either field with just a few holes featuring adjusted pars or different tee pad positions.
