Wanna Fly Forever?

Posted by Administrator on 11/12/2009 to Frisbee Golf

Steady Ed Headrick, the Father of Disc Golf, created the first Disc Pole Hole in 1975, and the sport we now know as disc golf received the breath of life.  A Wham-O employee, Steady Ed transformed throwing “frisbee” discs, traditionally a child’s game, into a legitimate sport for all ages.  Near the pioneer’s death, he made it clear to his family his wishes for his afterlife.  Ed dreamed of flying on after his death in the form of his beloved discs!  After his cremation, his family had his remains poured into the mixture of a special run of discs. Steady Ed’s son Daniel is quoted, “He said he wanted to end up in a Frisbee that accidentally lands on someone’s roof.” 

Steady Ed is a LEGEND, and disc golf wouldn’t be here without him.  Whether you buy one of his memorial discs or not, take a moment the next time you play to toss a disc in honor of the Father of Disc Golf!

What do you think of Steady Ed's Memorial Discs?
