Roots Of Flight: Local Clubs — The Lifeblood of Disc Golf

All disc golf is local!

Individuals can have a huge impact on disc golf, but local organizations that maintain the courses, run events, and actively share disc golf with others are the lifeblood the sport. Pittsburgh Flying Disc and the San Francisco Disc Golf Club founded by Gary J. Dropcho #2734 and Greg Quiroga #12362, respectively, are two of the most successful clubs today, despite starting almost 20 years apart.
