The Eagle Disc Golf Course in Olpe, and the Peter Pan course in Emporia, had to have alterations made to them because parts of the courses were flooded.

KSNT 27 News spoke to a member of the PGDA to explain what alterations were made to the courses.

“Several holes throughout the course do have alterations,” Adam Clairmont a PGDA Marshall said. “We’ve brought in some temporary tee pads. We’ve brought in some temporary baskets and placed them around so that we can maintain play here throughout the entire tournament.”
