How should we grow the sport? We need to take better care of the most important factor. Our local disc golf courses. We need to maintain and update our courses as needed to keep them beautiful and easy to follow. The basics of a good disc golf course should be a maintained. 1-Bulletin board with course map, 2- tee signs, 3-proper sized and safe tee pads, and 4-next tee directional signs. As we continue to grow the sport we need continuity in course design. I'm truly embarrassed and frustrated when I travel to a course only to find it neglected and in disarray and to find out they run tournaments there. Look at your own course. How can you make it better? Growing the sport starts right at ...

From tournament director Doug Bjerkaas email 3-18-14

In December 2010, Ray Woodruff and I approached the Mile High Disc Golf Club (MHDGC) Board with a request of support for a women’s only disc golf tournament. The Board said “yes” and Ray and I were off and running. Our first event at the Mansion course proved that a women’s only event in Colorado was viable and in fact could help promote women’s disc golf in our region. Since the June 2011 event, the number of women competing in MHDGC events has increased dramatically. The RMWDGC, along with other initiatives designed to promote women’s disc golf, have had a very positive impact on our sport. The event has grown over three short ye...

It’s official!! Due to the generosity and kindness of the Mile High Disc Golf Club members (and their financial donors), the 2014 Mile High Ice Bowl raised $10,323.51! Combine that with the $9,676.49 raised by Winter Warriors, and we will be handing the Food Bank of the Rockies $20,000 this year (due to a last minute donation this morning, the number came out at exactly $20K)!!

Please stop and think about this for a minute. Because of all of your giant hearts and giving spirits, we will be providing 80,000 meals to those in need ($1 = 4 meals). That’s freaking amazing my friends! And it’s all because of you!!! I’m getting a little weepy here!

Kurt Stauder - Hey guys here is the final numbers from the Ice Bowl. We raised close to $2,000 it was real close to that with David Fournier, Nathan DeLand and Doc Taylors last minute donations so I pitched in the last few bucks to make it the even $2,000 and we donated a total 585#s of food. That's fantastic! Can't wait until next year we'll make it even bigger and better! Thanks to all who contributed to making this a huge success!

Here is a little story of it's creation by Michael Shuette of the Pikes Peak Flying Disc Golf Club.

About a year ago I was contacted by John and Christie Ramshur, Palmer Lake residents who wanted to have a disc golf course to entice their daughter Courtney and her fiancee to come down more often from Denver so that they would see them more often. John and Christie had approached the business group / association of Palmer Lake to work a disc golf course into their GoCo grant for the purpose of improving the level of attraction of PL and bring more visitors to the area. We met a few days later and I walked them through what appeared to be a good usa...

Hello! Did you check out the Colorado Highlights section of the homepage,? Scroll down a little bit, it's just under the pictures. It has links to a couple new courses. Of course Paco is new, although it's really back, because we had it going before the train went through. Let me know if you more assistance.

I really apologize for not getting the 2012 Thin Air Tour points totaled up yet. We had over 40 members this year so it's a lot to deal with. However I am making great strides and will have them completed and posted this coming weekend. I decided to move the date of the CDSA Awards Celebration and Skins Tournament to SUNDAY, DECEMBER 9, 2012. There are 2 different events that came up on the same day we were originally going to do the awards celebration and I don't want to take anyone away from participating if they want to. I do feel bad for moving it because the original skins/awards date has been on our brochures and website all year. Of course ...

I am very happy that the CDSA can act as a conduit for the general public to ask about disc golf and any other frisbee sports and also an organization for the media to pay attention to. Such was the case when The Denver Post did an article about disc golf in August 2012, as a result from multiple CDSA press releases. I thought it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen, when the very top left corner of a major news publication like The Denver Post had the words, "Exploring Disc Golf's Cool Factor"! This is exactly the kind of exposure disc golf needs, to help the general public understand that it is a legitimate sport that is exploding right now. I've been sending ...

Every year it seems to be a scramble to get the final9 safari layout at the Badlands, so I thought I'd write it down for prosperity. Remember that these holes are usually in the long/very long pin positions, which makes it easier walking and better flow for this safari course.

Safari Hole 1: tee 1 to hole 16

Safari Hole 2: tee 17 to hole 1

Safari Hole 3: tee 2 to hole 4

Safari Hole 4: tee 3 to hole 7

Safari Hole 5: tee 8 to hole 9

Safari Hole 6: old tee 10 to hole 11

Safari Hole 7: pro tee 12 to hole 13

Safari Hole 8: tee 14 to hole 9

Safari Hole 9: 12 dropzone to hole 3
