The disc golf course on the University of Mobile campus will be the site for the second Ram Jam Classic competition on Saturday, Sept. 16.
The Ram Jam Classic is a C-tier PDGA-sanctioned singles tournament open to the public. Entry fees range from $45 to $60. The event is organized by 2017 UM alumni Logan Moore and Josh Hollingsworth as a fundraiser for the University of Mobile.
Register for the tournament at umobile.edu/alumni-events. University of Mobile-branded drivers, putters, mini discs and backpacks are available prior to and during the tournament at The University of Mobile Store on campus, or online at universityofmobilestore.com in the Disc Golf Collection.
Second annual event
Moore said the UM course was established in 2017 and quickly became a hit for both beginners and experienced players. Moore and Hollingsworth have been instrumental in developing their alma mater’s disc golf course and organized the first Ram Jam Classic in 2021.
“This event will be a 2-round tournament that will include a film crew for the lead MPO card this year,” said Moore, an operations specialist in cybersecurity for CrowdStrike. Moore has traveled for tournaments across the Southeast representing different sponsors over the years. Currently, Moore is sponsored by Flight Factory Disc and serves as CFO for the Mobile Area Disc Golf Association Board of Directors.
Hollingsworth has been a professional player since 2020 and has placed in the top 5 at multiple Southern Nationals Amateur Champions, 13th and 10th at the National Amateur Disc Golf Tour (NADGT) championships, and 3rd at the U.S. Amateur Match Play Championship.
“We are excited about the ability to showcase the university’s beautiful campus and also to introduce students and the community to the PDGA tournament scene,” said Hollingsworth, a project accountant for HDR Engineering Inc.
