The inaugural St. Jude Disc Golf Charity Invitational will bring together a unique partnership between St. Jude, the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) and the international disc golf community. Proceeds from this event will benefit St. Jude, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. The invitational will also honor the legacy of disc golf pioneer “Steady Ed” Headrick, who led the way for disc golf to become one of the fastest-growing sports in the world. The SpinTV has a preview of the jaw dropping Headrick Course assembled on the Bayonet Golf Course. Watch the video at the top of this page to meet the course designer Jussi Meresmaa and see him play the key holes!
