Fit4Life Disc Golf Challenge again produces good fun, nice prizes

BRISTOL, Va. – Disc golfers from Mountain States got active and had some fun at Sugar Hollow Park recently, and several of them won some big money, too.


The Fit4Life Summer ’17 Disc Golf Challenge was held on Saturday, June 3, at Sugar Hollow. The 18-hole tournament was for Mountain States team members only, and J Penny, a physical therapist with Home Health, emerged as the overall winner of the top division. Penny, who was one of the winners of last year’s Fit4Life Disc Golf Challenge, earned $1,500 for first prize.

“We wanted to create something as part of our Fit4Life program to let people get outdoors, be active and have some fun,” said Taft Simmons. “We had excellent weather and some very good competition, and I think it was a big success.


“I want to congratulate the winners and thank everybody who participated by playing or supporting the event. I think our team members really enjoyed it.”


The tournament was divided into Class A, for experts or experienced players, and Class B, for beginner or novice players. Competition was only open to Mountain States team members, but they could bring along friends or family for support, to play a round after the tournament or to have a picnic. Recreational Disc Golf rules were used. All participants received a free set of discs.
