Kentwood and Great Lakes Disc are partnering to host their seventh annual disc golf tournament.

The Freeze Fest doubles disc golf tournament and food drive will be held from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 19 at Jaycee Park, 1088 Gentian Drive SE in Kentwood.

“It’s been amazing to see the popularity of our disc golf tournaments grow over the years and, along with it, the support of Kentwood’s Little Free Pantry,” said Lori Gresnick, Kentwood recreation program coordinator. “We are grateful the disc golfer community continues to take part in our annual tournaments for some friendly competition and for a good cause.”

Disc golfers can participate in the best-shot doubles competition. The first round of the tournament will begin at 10 a.m.

Participants can register in advance online or on-site at 9 a.m. the day of the tournament. The cost of the event is $40 along with one canned food donation per team. All funds and food donations from the event will support Kentwood’s Little Free Pantry.

Kentwood’s Little Free Pantry was founded in 2017 as a community service project in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. The pantry offers nonperishable food and personal care items year-round to those in need.

“Great Lakes Disc is proud to again partner with the city of Kentwood to host the annual Freeze Fest,” said Shea Abbgy, owner of Great Lakes Disc. “It feels great to have our favorite sport play a part in helping the local community.”
