The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
Disc golf is growing very fast, how fast? Well according to Infinte Discs survey, nearly half of all active disc golfers have been playing for less than two years. If this rate continues, the number of disc golfers will double again in another two and a half years. That's pretty significant growth.
Your responses to this question were not nearly as varied. Over half of those surveyed have been playing disc golf for only three years or less and 87% have been play for less than ten years. This is solid evidence to the claim that disc golf is the fastest growing sport in the world. Players in the sport are new to it, and those who have played for a long time are still going strong and loving it. Given more time, and the current rate of growth, expect to see higher level competition become more lucrative, professional, and exciting.
A decent portion also responded as being in the 6-10 years of being a disc golfer category – this is where you will likely find many of today’s disc golf leaders. Those who have been playing for 6-10 years received 190 (15%) responses. Only 13% of disc golfers have been playing for 11 years or more.
