The Statesboro-Bulloch Parks and Recreation department is organizing the First Flight Open, a disc golf course tournament to announce the grand opening of the SBCPRD Disc Golf Course.

Disc golf is a combination of Ultimate Frisbee and golf. The goal is to throw a small disc through a course much like a golf course. At the end of the course, a vertical goal with chains suspended over a basket serves as the hole.

The goal of the game is to get the disc to hit the chains and fall into the basket in as few throws as possible. The fewer the throws needed to get the disc into the goal, the better the score.

The tournament starts at 10 a.m. on February 28, and is located on Mill Creek Road, near the Statesboro Airport. Registration for the event ends February 20 at 5:30 p.m. and costs $30 per player.
