JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – A fast growing sport will hold its national championship in the Tri-Cities next year.

The Johnson City Convention and Visitors Bureau announced Monday that the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship will be hosted in Johnson City in 2017.

The CVB says The Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) selected Johnson City because of its beautiful location, challenging courses and the CVB’s commitment to make the championship a memorable experience for athletes, fans and the community.

Winged Deer Park will serve as the featured course and site for the finals, with nearly 100 athletes from across the country taking part.

Though the disc golf course located just off Bristol Highway is a relatively short track, it rewards accuracy over distance, is well maintained and has several other amenities.

The satellite course will be a temporary track at Buffalo Valley Golf Course designed by Tournament Director, Tim Barr

The championships take place September 21st-24th, 2017.

The Lakefront Disc Golf Club in Kingsport will assist with hosting the event.
