History of Disc Golf
In the beginning, there was the Frisbee. The Frisbee led to Frisbee golf, as Frisbee aficionados looked for new and improved ways to play with their discs and began throwing them at holes like garbage cans, light posts, trees and whatever else struck their fancy.

Frisbee golf led to disc golf, as Frisbee aficionados discovered that those traditional Frisbees took a real beating when you threw them at the ground repeatedly. They then figured out it worked better to throw at a permanent hole.

1st Disc Golf Course
The Father of Disc Golf, "Steady" Ed Headrick, who also helped bring the Frisbee to life, created the 1st disc-golf course in 1975 in Oak Grove Park in Pasadena, California. It's still in use today. That park featured the 1st ever permanent disc hole - a chain basket mounted to a pole, now standard equipment for disc-golf courses everywhere.
