Patriot's Gold & Silver Presents: The 5th Annual Hanna Hills Open sponsored by Dynamic Discs
Welcome to the 5th Annual Hanna Hills! As always, we’d like to start off by thanking our tour sponsors:
Our Title Sponsors are Patriot's Gold & Silver and Dynamic Discs

Carpool if at all possible. We've expanded the parking lot, but there is still limited parking. We have also painted some parking lines to help maximize space. If the main parking lot is full, find Vic, Diana, Michael, or Jonathan, and they will direct you where to park. Also, please try to start live scoring before you get to the course. The cell signal is very hit and miss. Mostly miss! Directions: From I-44 take exit 153 at Buckhorn and travel south 1.1 miles on MO HWY 17, turn left (southeast) on Hwy NN. Travel 3.6 miles on NN. Enter the course next to the historic Hanna Post Office. Follow the signs marked "Hanna Hills Parking."
Everyone needs to check in at the barn. Round 1 tees off at 9. Scores for this tournament wil be kept online at www.pdga.com/score. Code is HHO. Paper cards will be available upon request. Round 1 player course and hole assignments will be posted shortly after registration closes Friday night at https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/67758. DGM staff will receive the online scores at tournament central. When round one is finished, lunch will be provided by the Benteles on the grounds. This is an incredibly beautiful and well kept private course, for this reason we ask that you bring a donation for food if you are able. Round 2 SHOULD start at 1, but may change based on last card. There will be an announcement by DGM staff, and round 2 assignments will be posted online and on paper.
Rules for the course are listed below. There are 5 CTP’s: Women’s only CTP is hole 2. Innova CTP (any doc can win) is hole 3. Trilogy-only CTP is hole 14. MVP-only hole is hole 8. Prodigy-only hole is hole 17.
If there is any question about any throws or lies, try to make a group decision. If no decision can be made, play a provisional. When possible, consult with the course TD to determine the correct answer.
