Memorial for Leyva on Friday

A memorial for disc golf icon Craig Leyva, who passed away this year, will be held on Hole 5 after the clinics Friday evening.

The lefty, who grew up in La Mirada, CA, also spent time in Texas, and lived most recently in Atlanta.

“He would throw an Aviar where most people would throw anything else but a putter. He threw things really hard and really far,” said friend Brian Mace, adding that Leyva was one of the original legends of disc golf.
