One of the Fastest-Growing Sports in the World
As of late 2020, there were over 7,500 permanent disc golf courses installed in North America, Europe and Asia. That number increases each year as more and more players participate in the sport, both competitively and recreationally.
The Best Recreational Use of Land for Your Investment
A disc golf course represents one of the best investments that can be made by the parks & recreation division of any municipal government. Courses can be installed for far less capital than baseball diamonds or playground equipment, and with minimal construction or alteration of the existing landscape, a disc golf course installation is truly a conservation effort. Disc golf is considered a lifetime fitness activity, promoting an active lifestyle and helping to prevent obesity.
