Joe Schacht, of Anchorage, won the Greatland Cup Disc Golf Tournament on Sunday, finishing with a tournament-best score of 184 after four rounds of play on the Aant’iyeik Park course.
The tournament, which began in Juneau 14 years ago by the Friends of Aant’iyeik Disc Golf Club, consisted of two 18-hole rounds on Saturday, followed by one nine-hole and one 18-hole round on Sunday. There were just over 40 participants, including 19 visiting players from Anchorage, Homer, Palmer, Haines and Ketchikan. Schacht also won the tournament last year.
Juneau players Johnny Simpson, Joe Luger and Sonny Ashby took second, third and fifth place, respectively. Ashby holds the record for most Greatland Cup titles with five while Schacht and Brian Blitz are tied with second-most with two.
The event was sponsored by Second Wind Sports, Nugget Alaskan Outfitter, Cycle Alaska, Foggy Mountain Shop and Costco.
