Ice Bowl to Test Disc Golfers Feb. 4 at Richmond Lake, South Dakota



Grab your flying discs and warm up your throwing arm. Disc golfers in South Dakota are invited to compete in the 16th Annual Frozen Tundra Challenge on Saturday, Feb. 4, at Richmond Lake Recreation Area near Aberdeen.

Ice bowls are held across the country, and can really test even die-hard disc golfers. It’s no wonder that the slogan is “No wimps, no whiners. Weather is no excuse!”

Participants will play one round of 18 holes, and prizes will be awarded to the top three players. Registration takes place at 10 a.m. in the park office at Forest Drive, with a tee off time of 11 a.m. A free chili feed provided by Prairie Dogs will take place following the tournament, and hot chocolate and coffee will be available to warm the disc golfers.

The entry fee is $10 with a donation of three cans of non-perishable food. All food proceeds will go to the Salvation Army food bank. A park entrance license is also required.

The event takes place at the disc golf course at Richmond Lake Recreation Area’s Forest Drive unit, located 10 miles northwest of Aberdeen, off U.S. Highway 281. The tournament is co-sponsored by the Aberdeen Area Disc Golf Association and the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks.
