Here is a quote from the first Buck Rhaney Memorial

"On behalf of Aiken County Parks Recreation & Tourism Department, I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone, especially Buck's wife, Mary and other family who are guests with us today, and for all those participating in this first annual "Buck" Rhaney Memorial at Boyd Pond.

For those that may not know about this facility or Buck. Let me briefly mention that Boyd Pond Park wasn't always known by that name. For over 2 decades, this facility was known as the ORA (the Operations Recreation Association) an area set aside for the thousands of employees of the Savannah River Site. Willie "Buck" Rhaney, a former veteran and Army Sgt., master mechanic, apparent radio personality, Augusta resident and overall gentleman with a great laugh; came to work for the ORA in 2003 and helped care for these 210 acres and especially this course. In 2008, Aiken County purchased the property and opened the land for public use, naming it Boyd Pond Park. "Buck" joined the ranks of Aiken County PRT and continued to care for this and other parks throughout the County. Despite the closure of this golf course for nearly a decade, "Buck" continued to take it upon himself to care for the pristine course whenever he had the chance. It was his pride and joy.

When Buck Rhaney retired from Aiken County several years ago, he'd still occasionally drop by with his beloved wife Mary and visit Boyd Pond, to say hello and check up on his golf course. Aiken County PRT re-opened the 32-acres as a disc golf course in June of 2016, almost at the very same time that Mr. Willie Rhaney tragically passed away. But today and during this tournament, I am proud and honored to designate this area set aside as the Willie "Buck" Rhaney Memorial Garden, a place of tranquility and reflection in honor of "Buck", our former employee, our friend and most of all the gentleman with a great laugh. Although many of those who knew him, miss him alot, more importantly, we remember Buck today.

Thanks again to his family and everyone for joining us here today. Good luck to all the participants. Have a wonderful time and enjoy the course that Mr. Rhaney loved caring for."

----------
This event will be a "True Amateur" Event: True Amateur is the designation used by the Professional Disc Golf Association in reference to those amateur events, or the amateur portion of an event, which promote that true spirit of amateur athletics by presenting only trophies to the top finishers of the tournament rather than a payout in merchandise. Instead, all players in the event receive equal value through their tournament experience due to the tournament amenities that are provided, which includes a larger than normal Player's Package.
