Disc golf players enjoy fleeting break from cold weather

The Columbia Disc Golf Club held its 28th Annual Ice Bowl Charity Tournament at 10 a.m. Sunday on the Albert-Oakland Park disc golf course. The first Ice Bowl disc golf event was organized in Columbia in 1987. Ice Bowls are held across the United States and a few European countries where they are typically played in snow, ice and frigid weather. They are also held in warm weather climates for irony's sake, according to the organizer's website.

On a rare warm January afternoon, the Columbia Disc Golf Club hosted its Ice Bowl Charity Tournament. Players aren't opposed to playing in poor conditions, which will likely arrive this week.
