Disc Golf Course History and Evolution

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. disc golf course

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.

Customized Disc Golf Gifts

A customized gift shows that you have put some thought into the gift, and with our site, you can design your own disc golf gifts. Disc golf gifts are growing more popular as groomsmen gifts and bachelor party gifts. Rather than gifting a sexy busty mug, you may opt for fun and tasteful disc golf gifts. Not that there is anything wrong with sexy mugs, but by designing your own gift, you have more creative liability. They also make amazing birthday and holiday gifts as well for that special frisbee player. Best of all, a disc golfer will be sure to appreciate a high quality PDGA approved disc to add to their collection.

Choosing the Right Disc

So I will do a quick run down with the three general disc models that are out there. We have the putter which is for throwing short distances. Then there is is the midrange which is for more distant throws that are not meant to be super fast. Then there is the driver which is for making those fast long distance throws. Basically, you can ask the golfer what type of disc they want to add to their collection and they will most likely tell you one of these three types: putter, midrange, driver. We carry various models of all these types of discs, and hopefully this blog will help simplify this for you. And if you are interested in knowing more details on the different types of discs, I found this following article to be really helpful! http://discgolfwomen.com/best-golf-discs-for-beginner-women-players/.

Great Disc For Playing Catch

Ultimate frisbees are a much better choice for a leisure frisbee to play catch with or take to the park. It’s a lot easier to catch and easy to throw. This is because the disc itself is much larger, lighter, and floats better than a golf disc would. Ultimate frisbee is a game meant for throwing the disc between players with lots of hand catches, thus the disc is designed to be much easier on the hand than a golf disc would be – which is more for just throwing down a fairway or at a basket rather than between people. Ultimate discs are thus a great choice for an all-around disc to have fun with on the beach or at the park.

How to Play Ultimate Frisbee

If you’re not familiar with the sport of ultimate frisbee, you should try it out! Pick up games are fun and easy to play. Ideally you’ll need at least 2-3 people on each team minimum. Set up some goal areas for touchdowns. Each team has to pass the disc back and forth to get into the end zone for a touchdown, just like football, only while you hold a disc you have to stay in one spot. You can pivot around but you can’t take any steps until you throw the disc. In the beginning and after each touchdown, the disc is thrown down field to the receiving team, just like kick off in football. For exact rules, check out wikipedia’s article on ultimate frisbee

Put a Team Logo on Your Disc!

If you have an ultimate frisbee team, putting a logo and your team name on a disc is a great way to step it up a notch, build team pride, and command respect on the field. If you can’t play on your home field, bring your home disc for some home-team advantage wherever you go! College team logos or high school team logos are a popular option, too, though our favorites are the creative (and sometimes hilarious) ultimate team names people come up with.
