AO Open: Disney’s Palm FootGolf Course at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando (September 2nd, 2018)
The AO Open Final event will be at Disney’s Palm Golf Course at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando! The tournament will be the Sunday of Labor Day weekend (September 2nd) where Top 4 finishers in each chapter’s qualifiers are eligible for both the AO Open AND the AFGL Magical FootGolf Challenge running the same weekend on the exclusive amazing golf course! Through our partnership with the good folks at AFGL, you can qualify and play in both! Crazy how that works out!
- Why play in the AO Open in Florida September 2nd?
- The AO Open is FREE to those who placed in the top 4 in their chapter tournaments and only $30 to others.
- Disney’s Palm Golf Course is an exclusive golf course which is hosting FootGolf for the first time, just for us. This may be the nicest FootGolf course in the country, and this is likely your only chance to ever play this course as a FootGolfer. This is a different course to the Disney family FootGolf course. Dont miss this chance to play this course!
- As a participant, you can stay at the Reunion Resort at a big discount (Follow this link which autopopulates the 0818AFGL code). Or another cheap option closer-by is the Lake Buena Vista Courtyard.
- Big Prizes!
- Grand Prize: Trip to a US game anywhere in America! Flight, hotel and game ticket included! Only top 4 finishers of their chapter tournaments are eligible.
- Other Prizes: Customized US jersey (courtesy of World Soccer Shop).
- All Players Receive: AO Ball Carriers
Why play in both the AO Open and the Magical FootGolf Challenge (MFC)?
- They are both on the same exclusive course, and you’ll already be there! The MFC is 9/1 - 9/3 with a practice round on 9/1. The AO Open is the afternoon of 9/2.
- The MFC is heavily discounted for you as an AO. Only $150 (down from $200) to play 4 rounds on an exclusive course. This includes a practice round (8/31) and 3 rounds (9/1 - 9/3).
- Although not yet confirmed, it is very likely that the MFC will be recorded for ESPN to be shown at a later date. Can’t promise yet, but we’re told it is very likely.
- You get to play with some of the top players in the country.
- The MFC has a large cash purse of $2,500 in prizes!
