Two of the miracles in this category have been Harmon Hills, which continued after the owned died, and Flip City, for its longevity.

Am Worlds was held in Augusta in 1996. Pendleton King was also used for Pro Worlds 2006 in Augusta. Back then, Steady Ed was the only course at the PDGA Headquarters and it was not played AFAIK.

Any reason why PK is going extinct? I thought that course had a lot of local love.

As I understand it, the land was donated, held in a trust to be a park in perpetuity. The trust has decided to sell it to a developer to build apartments.

There's lots of local government drama going on---though all I've seen is the Augusta disc golfer's facebook posts and petitions, plus a few local news articles they've linked to.

It's not completely extinct, but I'm glad I had the opportunity to play the limited-access Blue Gill DGC during a tournament a few years ago. It's a gem of a course that more than lives up to its rating. Out-of-towners should definitely play one of the handful of tournaments held there each year.

No sooner had I posted that, than a judge ruled in favor of it continuing as a park.

Forget I said anything.

Never played it myself, but Bucksnort may be the highest-rated course to pass away:

Although I read in another thread a hint that they're holding out hope for the future. It's currently listed as "unplayable" on this site.
