Jonesboro Opens Secures Title Sponsorship: Spartan Mowers & R&R Farm Equipment

Jonesboro, AR: The Jonesboro Open has announced a title sponsorship agreement with R&R Farm Equipment and Spartan Mowers. The Spartan Mowers / R&R Farm
Equipment Jonesboro Open presented by Prodiscus will be held on April 13-16 at the Disc Side of Heaven’s Gold Course and will be the fourth stop on the 2017 Disc Golf Pro Tour. The Jonesboro Open is a four day professional disc golf tournament that will bring the best disc golfers in the world to Northeast Arkansas for a week of activities. Professional men and women will compete for cash prizes as they play one of the longest disc golf courses in the world.
R&R Farm Equipment is owned by Rick Grissom and he and his family have served Jonesboro since 1991. He is excited to see new and interesting things come to his town and is proud to be a part of the Disc Golf Pro Tour. Spartan Mowers made in Batesville, Arkansas is owned and operated by Robert Foster. He has had a passion for building mowers since he was a young boy and his Spartan Mowers are built right here in Northeast Arkansas and sold by dealers like R&R Farm Equipment in 21 different states around the country.
The Jonesboro Open tournament director, Brad Pietz, commented on the partnership with R&R Farm Equipment and Spartan Mowers. “There were about seven companies that I had targeted from the very beginning to help us make this tournament the best that it could be. Spartan Mowers was one of those companies. Although we finalized the deal a little late in the process, I am super excited to have them on board. As far as Rick Grissom, Travis Grissom and Josh Brown at R&R,” Pietz continued, “we could not have done it without them. R&R Farm Equipment has been a staple in Jonesboro for over 25 years and they want to see our event succeed. I am very grateful to have a company and a family like that behind us.”
Pietz added, “This is another big hurdle that we have gotten past, but we are still working every day to get it where we want it to be. We still need help from additional community minded businesses to support this professional event coming to Jonesboro. We need volunteers to help when they are here, and we need people to come out and watch!”
