BURLINGTON, N.C. — Disc golfers from around the world are in Burlington this weekend competing for a $25,000 prize in the U.S. Masters Championship.

The three-course tournament is for people over the age of 40.

North Carolina is a growing hot bed for the sport because you can basically play year-round.  Burlington’s Cedarock Park is among those getting high marks in the world of disc golf.
