Me and my friend are getting to the point we are considering amateur tournies. But right now I am a college student with zero money. How much do tournaments cost/ how often are tournaments free? I'm playing out of Columbia, MO at the moment if anyone knows what's available out there.

No free tournaments, just free courses. Local leagues run anywhere from $3-8$ per week. Tournaments even for the beginning level will be at least $12 and more likely in the $20 neighborhood.

Before you start playing tournaments, see if you've got any local leagues around you. Normally, they are in the $5 range, but it gets you some experience playing in a more tournament type setting. There are also casual leagues that don't play for money that you may find in Columbia. I know the club there is pretty organized, so you may find something.

I know of a couple colleges that have disc golf clubs and some of the club members get tourney entry fees paid. Go to Western Illinois website and you will be able to know who to contact under disc golf to see how it works.

You can also start a Free Weekly or Monthly of your own if there is an opening. If you try not overlap or piggy-back any other events in your area, you can probably get enough people to play. Post up on a local message board and be willing to keep at it if turnout takes a little while to pick-up.
Another option is to do Tag Matches. Depending on how much money it is to get a Tag in your area, you can have a season full of competitive ladder matches for a one time buy-in.
