The "Steady" Ed Safari is an event sponsored by Disc Golf Association (DGA), the company founded by the "Father of Disc Golf"- "Steady" Ed Headrick. Participants must be at least 13 years old and in good physical condition, as the safari holes that play inside, over and thru the Ausable Chasm, are extremely physically demanding! Be ready to throw off of 100 foot cliffs, over the river to baskets next to unique rock formations. Raft guides will ferry you across the river at multiple locations and kayakers will be on hand to rescue floating discs.
