Disc Golf Causes Mayhem at Mont du Lac

It was a beautiful Saturday for some disc golf, and it was even better at the top of Mont Du Lac for the 50 participants in the Mayhem on the Mountain tournament.

Dozens of golfers hiked the hill to take part in the disc golf tournament, and organizers said the event has been growing over the last five years.

The weather helped out this year with sunshine and 70 degree temperatures, which is a far cry from the snow that fell during the first tournament according to organizers.

The tournament is special in that golfers run the elevated course once overnight and again in the afternoon according to Mont du Lac Manager Mike O'Hara.

“Everything here at the course is obviously pretty unique as we got to experience hiking up and down. Part of the excitement of this tournament is the fact that we play at night on Friday and turn the hill lights on, and the experience is a heck of a lot different. I think everybody just has a good time,” O'Hara said.

He said it costs $7 to run the hillside course, but Mont du Lac does have a free course at the foot of the hill for anyone that wants to try out disc golf.
