Ideas for growing the sport of disc golf:
Share your love of the game – People who love other sports show their support in all sorts of ways: wearing gear, posting on social media, putting bumper stickers on their vehicle or simply just talking about it.
- Invite a new player to play – This is something I strive to do more of in 2015. If each disc golfer invites one new player to the course or to a disc golf club meeting or a putting league, the addictive quality of disc golf will surely help grow the game.
- Introduce the game to families – Over the last year alone, I’ve seen more families on my local disc golf course than in previous years combined. Disc golf is very family-friendly and can be a great activity for families who enjoy the outdoors.
- Getting disc golf into schools – Obviously for us, this is a big one. We firmly believe that getting disc golf into schools will help grow the game dramatically. Read about our plans for 2015 here.
- Hold a promotional disc golf event – Again, another big one for us and something we’ll be working on. Organize one of the disc golf companies promotional events: the Discraft Ace Race, Trilogy Challenge, Prodigy Par 2, Legacy Discs Battle of the Aces, or the Vibram Birdie Bash. Each offers opportunities to introduce new players to the disc golf. The events are affordable and players can get discs and other swag.
