IDGC Disc Golf Courses
The "Steady" Ed Headrick Memorial Course, presented by the Disc Golf Association and the PDGA, features special edition DGA Mach III baskets on rolling terrain along the shores of scenic Clarks Hill lake (aka Lake Thurmond). The course was designed by Hall of Famers, Chuck Kennedy and Tom Monroe, and it is affectionately referred to as "The Ed" by locals. Multiple target locations and tee areas on this blue level course make it very adaptable for recreational play as well as high level competitions. The length of the course varies from 4,135' in its shortest configuration to 8,110' in its longest.
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 Hall of Famer, John Houck, and features Innova DISCatcher baskets set in a very challenging championship configuration. The course was sponsored and named in honor of W.R. Jackson, 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.
The Jim Warner Memorial Course, presented by Discraft and the Atlanta Disc Golf Organization, is the newest course open for play at the International Disc Golf Center. It features Discraft Chainstar targets and was designed by Hall of Famer, Jim Kenner, with assistance from Ron Russell and Pad Timmons. Multiple target locations and tee areas on this blue level course make it adaptable for recreational play as well as high level competitions. The length of the par 64 course is 7,844 feet. The Warner course was sponsored by Dorothy Wentz, Priscilla Warner and the Atlanta Disc Golf Organization to honor the late Atlanta area disc golf promoter and PDGA member, Jim Warner.
