Tree Love Classic

Tree Love Classic. Thirty-five individuals competed in the 2nd Annual Tree Love Classic (TLC) disc golf tournament Sept. 15 at Kessler Park. Sponsored by the Kansas City Flying Disc Club, the Professional Disc Golf Association sanctioned event was held to raise funds to plant trees around the 18-hole disc golf course. The trees add an extra challenge by creating another obstacle for disc golf players and beautify the park, said TLC Director Drew Neitzel. Over the years, disease and inclement weather have killed a number of trees, he said. This year’s event raised $800, he said.
