Eric McCabe and best friend Gabe Werly started the Glass Blown Open with big dreams. The first event was held in 2003 as a PDGA B-Tier that had 88 competitors. The original glass trophies were designed by world renowned artist, Hal Berger, which added tremendous value and prestige to the young event. In 2006 Hal passed away at the young age of 54 in his sleep and passed the art of blowing the glass trophies to Brice Turnbull, who studied under Berger. The excitement for the event has surpassed the hopes and dreams of McCabe and Werly with participation capped at over 1,100 and golfers traveling from around the world to participate in the world's largest disc golf tournament! The GBO is THE disc golf tournament to attend! 2016 saw 49 international players from 6 different countries registered 6 months in advance! Come watch the fun (tournament starts 4/27) and try it yourself at the block party on Saturday. Enjoy live music, games and so much more!
