Disc Golf has become a huge sport across the country over the last decade or so, and since the pandemic, it has only seen a rise in popularity. When things shut down, to get out of the house and avoid people, many took up disc golf, or worked on their game to get better, with more time to do so. With the rise of the game, more and more tournaments have begun taking place, not only across the country and the states but also in the Magic Valley. There are some unique and incredible courses in the area, and one of the most beautiful and unique courses is set to host a tournament that you won't want to miss.
