Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic Preview


The Disc Golf Hall of Fame Classic was created in 2003 for the inaugural PDGA National Tour to recognize and thank all of the distinguished members of the Hall of Fame, who have done so much to get the sport to where it is today.


The 2009 Hall of Fame Classic will take place on May 30-31, 2009 at the PDGA International Disc Golf Center at Wildwood Park in Columbia County GA. The tournament is sanctioned as a PDGA SuperTour event and as of 5/22/09 spots are still available in the tournament:

Jim Warner  

Jim Warner was an Atlanta area player and promoter who passed away several years ago. As a lasting tribute to Jim, his family and the Atlanta club raised $25,000 to name the course in his honor, and his ashes were interred into the tee pads on his memorial course. Jim’s widow, Priscilla Warner will be on hand to cut the ribbon to officially open it for play. The Atlanta Disc Golf Organization will also be treating everyone present on Friday evening to a cookout in Jim’s honor, immediately following random draw doubles, which begins at 4:00pm.

Following round two and prior to the barbecue dinner on Saturday evening, special guests Farina Headrick and Josh Orzech of the DGA will be on hand to unveil a bronze bust of “Steady” Ed Headrick which will grace his memorial museum at the International Disc Golf Center.
