MCO began as a B Tier event in 2012, then grew to A Tier for several years, and in 2021 was the National Tour Finale as Elite Series. In 2022, MCO plays as the second Silver Series event on tour.
In mid April 2022, MCDG will host an A-tier MCO event for amateurs and age-based divisions, playing on 5 additional courses in the Nashville area.
Dynamic Discs has been long time supporter of MCO and disc golf brand title sponsor for the event. In 2022, the event added a second title sponsor with MadeFirst, a TN based creative design and fabrication company.
When in Music City, you have to take in the music, right? TD, Zachary Hoy recommends the honky tonk bars of Lower Broadway in Nashville, along with the mother church of country music, aka Ryman Auditorium. And of course the classic Grand Ole Opry.
If sports are more your thing, then Zach suggests taking in a Nashville Predators, NHL game, at the Bridgestone Arena. During MCO tournament week the Predators will host the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday, March 29th.
