On July 2, 2016, Memphis Area Disc Golf will host the Bluff City Classic at the Overton Park Golf Course.
This one day event will be open to disc golfers of all levels – from recreational to professional. This year, the Bluff City Classic will be playing the course twice as a 20-hole course. This year’s tournament will also be sanctioned by PDGA for the first time. You can register for the tournament here.
Proceeds from the tournament go towards upkeep of local courses and helping to “grow the sport” here in the Memphis area. Organizer Tim Harris also notes that the Bluff City Classic is getting the lead card of the second round recorded for a Youtube Channel. With the help of Central BBQ as the tournament’s main sponsor along with other local companies, the Bluff City Classic has over $500 in added cash for pro players.
Heritage Discs has created a special edition disc to raise funds for the tournament. The disc’s original artwork highlights Memphis heritage and offers seventeen different color choices. The artwork is also exclusive to the limited edition glow putter from Legacy Discs.
Fifty percent of the proceeds from sales will go directly to Memphis Area Disc Golf. You can pick your very own limited edition glow putter here.
