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:
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.
Personalizing has been a trend for decades. Whether it is writing your initials on your lunchbox, or putting holes in your jeans a certain way. Making something personal is adding that special touch to something that’s yours. Now that we have the technology to make any product personalized by the click of a button, the possibilities are endless! It’s 2019, why buy brand named products when you can create your very own brand? Personalized disc golf discs are blowing up in 2019 and here’s why:
Personalized Discs are the Future
As disc golf continues to grow as a sport, like any other athlete, it is crucial to determine what your style is. Sydney Crosby likes to play with a CCM hockey stick with minimum to no curve, Pro soccer player Lionel Messi swears by his orange and blue cleats. What will your style be out on the course? Maybe you have a couple signature colors you can upload to your discs. Or maybe, it’s a certain animal you want stamp on your discs. Personalizing your discs will help you distinguish your self as an athlete!
Personalized Discs for the Team
Most team sports have jerseys with numbers and sometimes last names printed on the back. If you’re on a Ultimate Frisbee Team or Disc Golf team, do you have any sort of team unity gear? A huge trend in the disc industry for 2019 is getting team names or personal PDGA numbers on discs or frisbees. In the future, all discs will have some sort of personalized touch to it. Get a head start and design some discs for your team!
Ready to Put Your Trademark or Logo on Your Own Custom Disc or Custom Frisbee?
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:
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.

There is nothing quite like playing disc golf with custom discs you designed yourself. There is something special about personalizing sports equipment. We think it’s better luck to play with something YOU’VE designed. Here are some pro’s in using custom discs on the course:
No More Disc Mix-ups
Have you ever played disc golf on a crowded course? Have you ever gone to fetch your red Dynamic Discs Fuzion Sheriff only to find another competitor reaching for the same one? It’s actually pretty common for players to have the same discs, after all, there aren’t many disc golf manufacturers in the world. Designing your OWN discs, makes this awkward situation nearly impossible. Creating a custom disc gives you the power to stand out from the crowd. You can design your discs however you want using our customizer. You can even print your name on it! Or, upload a picture of your face on it! However you choose to design your disc, it will be ONLY YOURS.
Intimidate your Competition with Stylish Custom Discs
Imagine walking on to the course. You have a bag full of brand-name discs, all basic colors. Your competition walks on to the course and sets down their bag. They take out discs with their own logo they have created. All of the drivers, midranges and putters have a variation of their OWN logo. They have built their own disc golf brand. Before the game even starts, they have won. Creating your own custom discs and playing with them on the course gives you confidence and definitely some “cool points”.
Custom Discs allow you to express yourself through art. If you’re not really the creative type, there are tons of options you can use to create a custom disc in our customizer. Having a custom disc on the course will set you aside from everyone else. No matter how you choose to decorate your disc, it will be uniquely yours.

It was a beautiful sunny January weekend here in San Diego at Morley Field. My friend and I were having a great day playing some disc golf. Everything was going great, we were at hole 4 and a threw a forehand drive, soon it veered right and went into the bushes. As I ran over laughing to pick up my disc I see a man heading straight in my direction. I knew exactly what was happening here, he had mistaken his disc for mine, immediately I knew I didn’t personalize my disc in any way and by the look in his eye and rage in his step, I knew it would be a tough convince.
How it all Started
When I went to pull the disc out he rudely jumped in front of my face and claimed the disc was his. It was a Pink Latitude 64 Gold Line Ballista. I had just gotten the disc, so like a rookie I forgot to put my name on it or personalize it in anyway. He was apparently borrowing it from a friend who didn’t have a name on it either (of course). I told him that both my friend and I watched the disc from the time it left my hand to the bush, but he wouldn’t budge. He told a long drawn out story about how his friend would “kill him” if he didn’t bring her disc back. He obviously needed this disc more than I did. I told him he could just have it and this is the moment where I decided I wasn’t going to let this happen again. Sure, I could continue to buy popular discs and write my name on them, but what happens when I run into another Kira?
Luckily, I stumbled across Fly Discs and and I knew my personalized disc problems would be solved forever! Fly Discs allows you to completely personalize your disc, which is exactly what I needed. First, you choose your own background color, gradients, patterns and stock backgrounds. Next, you add your own text and photos. You can bet my name and number is clearly printed on all of my discs. Having my own personalized collection doesn’t only make me value my discs so much more but I feel as if I’m throwing them with integrity because I know they are personalized just for me and my name is literally on every shot I make. If you are a disc golf player, you need a to personalize a Fly Disc ASAP!

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.
