PUSHING THE ENVELOPE
ORGANIC & HEMP
We have always had mother earth in mind when developing our products and we’ve recently started working with Hemp polymers. At Gateway, we are always looking for innovative ways to push the envelope - and will continue to do so for years to come.
As of this writing, David has designed and installed over 90 disc golf courses, with several more currently in the works. He has played over 1060 different courses, and was one of the first inductees into the Missouri Disc Golf Hall of Fame in 2016.
Gateway Disc Sports began molding its own discs in 1999 with the release of the Sabre in S (Sure Grip) plastic and became well known around the world in 2002 with its ever-popular putter, the Wizard, which many still consider the greatest disc of all time.
Gateway was also one of the first to produce wide-winged drivers that could resist fierce headwinds — the Speed Demon and Spirit In durable Evolution plastic. Today Gateway Disc Sports boasts over 32 PDGA Approved golf disc models, which the company produces in three blends of plastic: Diamond, Platinum and Sure Grip. Its main putter plastic, Sure Grip, is available in a broad range of flexibilities and surface textures. Its putter line continues to rank near the top in both performance and popularity.
