 Disc Golf at Suwannee!


Disc Golf Discs

Florida's One Man Jam Brother Zach Deputy hosts a charity Disc Golf Tournament on the scenic, fantastic 18-Hole Magnolia Disc Golf Course at The Spirit of Suwannee Music Park. The flying fun soars on Saturday, November 10th at 10 am. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit victims of Tropical Storm Debby through the work of Love INC. located in Live Oak! Last summer on June 24th Tropical Storm Debby settled over north Florida for 4 days, dumping more than 25 inches of rain in some areas of Suwannee, Hamilton and Columbia Counties. The Suwannee River rose to near record flood levels and dozens of sinkholes developed around those counties, destroying many businesses and homes while making roads impassible. 1,500 families were flooded out of their homes and many were left without shelter, cars, clothes, food or any worldly possessions. The flood affected over 10,000 people throughout the tri- county area The $30 entry fee includes a commemorative Bear Creek Festival Disc. Sign up and step up to the First Hole located right behind the General Store Where Music Lives!. http://www.musicliveshere.com
