"We are excited to host the HOMIE Championship at Lemon Lake again. Our Flight Center at Lemon Lake is the first regional development center that offers teaching, learning, training and shopping in one location. We invite the public to visit the course and the HOMIE tournament to learn more about disc golf and its growing popularity," stated Deb Svitko, Sports and Business Development Director at the Lemon Lake Flight Center.
