Valentine’s day is probably the holiday that has the worst reputation of all the holidays out there, and possibly the only holiday that has the ability to make people sad. It can be stressful weather you are single, or happily taken. Grandiose expectations portrayed in movies, advertised in storefronts and on T.V. also promote that spending money=love.
We believe that thoughtful, personal, and fun gifts that don’t cost a fortune are the way to go, especially for this “Hallmark Holiday”. A custom Valentine’s Day disc golf disc or ultimate frisbee is the perfect little something for the disc golf or ultimate player in your life! The real meaning behind the Holiday is not about fancy dinners and chocolates, but love. Love between two people is unique, special and personal so shouldn’t your gift be too? With a custom V-day gift, your recipient will have a one of a kind disc and reminds them of your love every time they play and it’s a gift they will actually be excited about using!
Now, we aren’t saying that your boyfriend necessarily wants to throw around a disc with hearts all over it (not that there is anything wrong with that!), but there are tons of ways to be creative here without being cheesy or so…Valentinesey. You can upload your own favorite photo together, type an inside joke or nickname to go across the disc, upload your own artwork or choose from our many backgrounds, graphics and text options to create something totally new! A custom disc golf disc also promotes a fun activity you can do together! You really can’t go wrong with a custom disc this year!
For those of you who do not know, Morley Field Disc Golf course was established in 1978 by Snapper Pierson, who is a course pro and Disc Golf Hall of Fame member. Morley Field, located in the heart of America’s Finest City is one of the world’s original disc golf courses and one of (if not #1) the busiest courses in the world. Located just within a few miles from San Diego International Airport, San Diego Harbor, Coronado beaches and downtown, we are not surprised!
This course is open to the public from dusk till dawn, and overall is a shorter course with with a few lengthy holes. The course also features a beautiful southern California landscape with Mach III baskets and concrete tee pads. This is a challenging course with lots of trees and pin placements. Pin positions change each Monday and there are 3-6 positions for each hole.
The team makeup will remain the same as the last year with 5 open, 4 masters, 2 grand and one woman. Changes from the previous years include changing the playing formula so all the teams play their traveling partner in the 5th round. This way, the play continues and there is no need to come in, reorganize and go back out.

History of Disc Golf
If you are a disc golf fanatic you may wonder about the history of the sport. Disc golf saw it’s start in 1976 when “Steady” Ed Headrick, known today as the father of disc golf, established the Disc Golf Association (DGA). A couple years previous, Headrick approached the county of Los Angeles Park and Recreation Department about installing a disc golf course. This idea would soon form into the first ever permanent course located in Oak Grove Park.
Disc Golf Course Origination and Growth
The first disc golf competition took place shortly thereafter in 1969 at Brookside Park in Pasadena, CA. It was on of the many events included the “All Comers Meet” and Jay Shelton took home the win. This competition sparked a fire in many players and was key in aiding in the growth of the sport as many disc golf players began to get more serious now that there were official competitions taking place and exponentially more disc golf courses being built. In 1982 DGA published “Pocket Guide for the Game of Disc Golf by Ed Headrick” which listed 117 US disc golf course locations. This guide served as a bible of sorts for dedicated disc golf players. This guide was instrumental for players. Before it’s publication, disc golfers had to resort to word of mouth to locate courses. Some even resorted to creating makeshift courses on their own.
By 1985 209 courses existed and were detailed in the “Flying Disc Golf Course Directory”, edited by Allen Risley and published by the Professional Disc Golf Association. The PDGA stills exists today as the main source for all disc golf information. Their directory is updated with every new recorded course and now includes a user friendly map for convenience.
Today there are over 4,00 registered disc golf courses across the United States. Take a look at the directory to find the course nearest to you and get out there! With our custom discs and equipment you will be ready to step out on any disc golf course.
