Disc Golf in December

Oh, the weather outside is frightful! Does that make you retire your love for discgolf until Spring? In some opinions, December is the best month to play! New obstacles like snow mounds, ice, and the extreme terrain make for a way more exciting game. Not only does playing discgolf in December make for more an adventure, it also makes you a better player! Some of the best discgolf players play during all seasons so that they don’t every get rusty. Another plus to playing in the Winter, is that courses are mostly empty. You can take all the time you need to make your perfect putts. :

Tips for Playing Discgolf in December

Here are some other things to keep in mind when you’re hitting the course in December. 1. Hydrate! Always remember to drink a lot of water. Although you might not feel thirsty, it’s important to stay hydrated. 2. Dress in layers! Wearing one giant jacket can be restrictive. We suggest layering with Thermals, Flannels and a Waterproof Shell. 3. Wear proper Boots or Waterproof Footwear! The last thing you want to happen if for your feet to get wet! Wear proper boots and bring some trash bags to tie over your boots in case the terrain is extra slushy. 4. Bring Towels! This is important for wiping your wet discs! 5. Bring Chapstick and Lotion. You don’t want to suffer in the snow with dry hands or lips! 6. Be sure to play with some bright color discs! White discs will disappear in the snow. You can always design your own bright discs on our site!

Good luck and have some fun!

50 Putt Challenge

Getting bored of posting selfies and pet pics on your Instagram page? The 50 Putt Challenge is here! Brought to you by @brad_disc who started the competition on Instagram a couple months ago. Can you beat his score of 46/50 shots made in the basket from 15 feet away? We want YOU to submit your video for a chance to win your very own custom putter.

How to set up the 50 Putt Challenge

This is not as hard as it seems to set up and you certainly don’t need 50 putters like @brad_disc. You can use one, and keep getting it after every shot. First, set up a basket in the corner of the room, or yard. If you don’t have a basket, take a bucket and tilt it sideways on some sort of ledge. Be sure that whatever you choose to use for a basket, is the correct height (around 3ft tall). Now that we have everything set up, have a friend film you, or prop your phone up and film yourself putting 50 times from 15 ft away!

Submit a Video!

Submit your video by posting on your Instagram the putting video along with your score /50. Hashtag #50puttchallenge and tag @flydiscs in your post. We will select winners based on best putter and most creative video! Our winners will get to design and order their own putter on our site for FREE!

Disc Golf Graduation Party

It’s that time of year to start planning Graduation Parties. Whether you’re graduating from High School or graduating from College, it’s pretty typical to throw some sort of party for family and friends to celebrate your success. Typically, these parties consist of family and friends gathered in you backyard or party hall, eating hamburgers and discussing how old you’ve gotten and how proud everyone is of you. How sweet…What if, you mixed it up and hosted a party on a disc golf course! You could separate everyone into teams and have a friendly competition surrounding your cake and hot dogs. Here are some fun ideas to make this Disc Golf Graduation Party a reality:

Setting Up

Okay, so you’ll want to find a venue that allows for this graduation BBQ-style disc golf tournament. I suggest, going to your local disc golf course, and asking if it’s possible to host a BBQ there. If not, you’ll have to create one yourself, which is not hard. What you’ll need to do is find an open field, park or backyard. You can design your own course, numbering each hole. If you don’t already have baskets, there are ways to get creative to make your own. If you want to get professional, here are some PDGA quality disc golf baskets you can purchase. Once you have the course set up, work on creating a homebase for food and drinks. A white party tent, picnic tables, or BBQ would be a great idea for setting up the party. That way, everyone can meet back for drinks and cake after the match.

Custom Graduation Disc Golf Discs

Something that would make this party truly unique is designing custom disc golf discs for the big game. Something that showcases your successful year, or even just a great photo of your graduating class. Another idea is to make a custom disc trophy, for the winning team. You can decorate discs and write “Pete’s Disc Golf Graduation Party Tournament Champs!” There are so many cool ways to decorate your disc golf discs to make your party super memorable.

Tips in Designing your own Custom Discs and Frisbees

When designing your own custom discs and frisbees, there really aren’t any rules. That’s the beauty of being an artist! You can create anything you’d like and call it art. For some people creating and designing is fun and easy, while for others, it can be stressful and aggravating. The goal of this website, is to make players happy with what they throw. We want Disc Golfer’s, Ultimate Players, and even casual beach throwers to look down at their custom disc and smile with joy, as they throw something THEY have created. So here are some tips in designing your custom disc or frisbee:

Use Pictures

Choose fun photos to upload on to your disc. Your disc will stand out from the crowd with personalized photos. Using our customizer, you can literally upload any photo from your phone or desktop, to your discs! Just make sure they are nice quality and high resolution. If you’re not really a picture taker, not to worry. We have an extensive library available with various photos to choose from or you can choose from the web. Pictures are a great way to customize your disc because it shows your personality and interests. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.

Personalize Your Custom Disc

Large corporations, and their brand names are everywhere. They essentially control how we buy and what we buy. Custom discs and frisbees give you the opportunity to break away from sporting a brand name. We urge you to create your own brand! Personalize your disc by writing your name on it with our unique font library! Create a logo for yourself using your own initials! The opportunities are endless when you design your own disc. Whatever you do, make it YOURS.

Have Fun with it!

There is no pressure in disc design. You can upload as much or as little as you want to your disc. Have fun and play around with our tools in the customizer. You will be amazed by what your are capable of creating. Design a few and save them to your profile. You can always go back and tweak and redesign. Can’t wait to see what YOU can create!
