The St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department is teaming up with the St. Charles County Disc Golf Club to offer these challenging tournaments that provide a mix of short and long holes in and out of the woods. Baskets lined with glow sticks mark the course. Players need to bring their own discs; a limited amount of LED lights will be available for purchase at each tournament. 

Both tournaments are limited to 72 players; cost is $10 per person. Registration is day-of the event only. The tournament at Quail Ridge Park, 560 Interstate Drive, begins with registration from 6:30 to 7:15 p.m., then a shotgun start at 7:30 p.m. Registration for the tournament at The Park at New Melle Lakes, 400 Foristell Road, is from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. with a shotgun start at 6:30 p.m.
