The W.R. Jackson Memorial Course, presented by Innova Discs and Jay Townsend, is the longest course at the IDGC, coming in at 9,325 feet and par 69. The Gold level course was designed by Disc Golf Hall of Famer, John Houck, and features Innova DISCatcher baskets set in a very challenging championship configuration.
The Jackson course was sponsored by Jay Townsend and named in honor of his grandfather, W.R. Jackson, an industrialist who took over the reigns of a steel fabrication company named PDM and proceeded to grow it into a fortune 500 company. PDM's most famous contract was for the fabrication and construction of the stainless steel for the St. Louis Arch.
