Frisbee golfers from around the country are at Lincoln Park in Grand Forks this weekend.

The 11th Annual North Dakota State Disc Golf Tournament started today with players of all skill levels competing.

There are 156 players this year in four divisions for women, juniors, rec players, and professionals.

The tournament is also a national point tour event, so professionals are playing to keep up their rankings and sponsorships.

Tournament Director Travis Hagen says the Lincoln Park disc golf course is perfect for this tournament because it is the only course in North Dakota with 36 holes in one location.

"I've been doing this a long time and its getting bigger and bigger and bigger and I've learned a lot. This tournament is very very big, it's run very smooth," Hagen said.

The tournament ends tomorrow and gives out $10,000 in cash and prizes.
