KC Wide Open is on it’s 41st year in 2023. This event is unique in that it has been apart of the PDGA tour since its inception. This event has been won by 90% of the world champions in PDGA history! The course, Bad Rock Gold has been an evolving process over the last 3 years. It is a championship course that has spectacular views with open fairways and tuff wooded holes. The front 9 is the easier part of the course as the back 9 is really tough with four monster holes.
