Roots Of Flight: Baskets

How the symbol of disc golf has evolved over time

The disc golf basket target is the most recognizable symbol in the sport. It has largely remained unchanged from its original design in 1976, but there have been several innovations in target technology over the years. Gabe LaBounty talks with Dan “Stork” Roddick #003, Jeff Homburg #1025, Scott Keasey #19655, and Dave Dunipace #987 to trace the evolution of the disc golf target from trees to the modern pole hole.
