Golf Tournament

Can singles sign up?

YES! It’s a four-person scramble, but if you don’t have a team, please sign up anyway!
We will pair you with a group so you can play!

What if it rains?

We will make every effort to play, even if the weather is inclimate (unless there is lightning, of course)!
Show up for registration and lunch, even if it’s raining … the food will be great and we’ll tee off as soon as the weather passes.

How do I sign up?

The Duck Drop

What time do the ducks drop?

Ducks will be dropped by Lake Ozark Helicopters into the Osage River at noon on Saturday, August 3rd.

Where is the best viewing area?

The best place to see the ducks drop is PAST the Lake Ozark Campground and RV park office.
You will NOT be able to see the ducks drop if you sit just below the dam in the rocky area next to the fun zone.
Please note, the drop area is not an exact science … the weather, winds, and helicopter pilot will ultimately determine where the ducks are dropped from the helicopter. Safety is the first priority.
The pilot will do his best to drop the ducks in the river near the campground area.

I have feedback. Who should I contact?

We do appreciate feedback, as it helps us make the event better each year. You can contact the Ozark Coast Kiwanis Duck Drop Committee at Please remember that every person at the Fun Zone and on the water with the ducks is a VOLUNTEER. The event is a fundraiser and the proceeds help local children around the Lake of the Ozarks area.
Positive feedback and constructive criticism is welcome.

Please be kind to our ALL VOLUNTEER team. They do their best to make it a fun day for your children.
