Posted Mar 29, 2024 9:30 AM


The Flying Bison Disc Golf Course, Hays Frontier Park, turned 40 years old last September.

At 4 p.m. April 2, the Chamber in Hays will host a ribbon cutting ceremony in the Frontier Park west shelter house with refreshments and a disc golf clinic.

The Flying Bison Disc Golf Club, Defiance Brewing Company and the city of Hays are also celebrating with a very unique beer festival.

At 2 p.m. April 13, twelve Kansas brewery teams will tee off for the “Brewers Cup” in Frontier Park. Check-in for the event is from noon-1:30 p.m. Three exhibition cards will also be featured.

Tickets are being sold for the public to attend the beer festival and watch the competition. There will be four beer sampling stations located on the course.

Around 30 different craft beers will be available to sample. General Admission tickets are $45 and can be purchased at the website

The course, located in Frontier Park, is the oldest 18-hole course in the state of Kansas. It is also host to the longest running Professional Disc Golf Association sanctioned event in the state. All proceeds will be split to benefit the Kansas Disc Golf Association's annual Food Drive Event Discs and the Kansas Craft Brewers Guild. The KDGA raised $31,733 and 2,722 non-perishable items for food banks across the state last season.
