2019 Christmas Gift Ideas for Disc Golfers

Every year at Infinite Discs we try to put together a unique, fun list of gift ideas for disc golfers. Let’s take a look at the 2019 holiday ideas that we feel would please any disc golfer…the 2019 Disc Golf Gifts guide!

Discs!

Of course, no disc golf will turn down more discs for the holidays. But where do you start if you don’t know which specific discs they need in their bag? You might as well get something that is fun to throw and collectible, or that shares a little holiday spirit. That way, whether they throw it, or keep it as a memento, they’ll be happy. Here are a few holiday discs you might consider:

PROFESSIONAL SIGNATURE DISCS — One of the fun gift ideas for any disc collector or player is a signature edition of a popular disc. A signature edition is a disc with the signature and endorsement of a professional player. Pretty much any major disc brand has sponsored professional players who will have special edition stamps and plastics run just for them.

TAKE A LOOK AT THEM HERE and FILTER for Your Favorite Brand

HOLIDAY EDITION DISCS — Several different disc manufactures make holiday edition discs. If your disc golfer prefers more of a spooky edge, we have a lot of discs that were released as Halloween discs. Or, if you want a more traditional “Happy Holidays” or “Season’s Greetings” style, we usually have a few of those as well. But if you want a stamp with a little more edge, you may want to check out the selection of “SANTA CLAWS” stamped discs for 2019.

You can BROWSE THE HOLIDAY SELECTION HERE and filter by brand or disc type to find exactly what you like among the holiday editions.

You can BROWSE THE SANTA CLAWS DISCS HERE.

DISC DEALS BOXES — Every year, without fail, one of the most popular gift purchases from Infinite Discs the Infinite Deals Box. These are 7-disc package sets with a variety of different disc models from different brands, including stock stamps, tournament stamps, misprints, and more. It is a great value and an adventurous way to give a pile of discs to a player so that they can try them out and possibly find some new favorites! We have four different Deals Box sizes to choose from:

This year we’ve also added a couple of other package sets, including the 5-Disc Bargain Box which features a selection of discs in base plastic for the shopper on a budget. Perhaps you’re just introducing a friend to disc golf and you want to give them a variety of discs to try without spending a lot of money, then the 5-Disc Bargain Box is for you. Or, for the very basics, we also have a very affordable Infinite Starter Set with a putter, mid-range, and driver in easy-to-throw, lighter weights for beginners.

MYTH 10-DISC PUTTER PACK — We also have a selection available of 10-Disc MYTH Putter packs. The MYTH is a slick, beaded putter by Infinite Discs, and we’ve had so many customers ask for bulk packs of putters that we made these as a way for people to get a lot of practice putters for a very low price. Why do disc golfers need so many putters? Because putting is one of the most important parts of the game, and it is easier to practice when you’ve got a big pile by your side.

TOMB 10-DISC PUTTER PACK — While the Tomb is well known as an approach disc that can be used either to putt or as a mid-range stand-in, we’ve had a lot of player requests for a 10-pack. It is becoming more popular as a putter to attack the basket, so this pack makes a great gift for those who want to get some practice time in, or to share with friends.

Maybe you have a crazy sense of humor and want to give somebody a disc that makes a statement about how long they take to find their errant throws? Or maybe you just have a sadistic streak? We’ve got a fun option for you too with an autumn leaf camouflage disc. These are available on the popular EMac TRUTH mid-range disc or the RAIDER distance driver (click on “Select Your Disc” to browse for the autumn leaf print).

Infinite Discs has the largest selection of custom stamps on a huge variety of disc brands. Whether you’re looking for a “tough guy” image (see the GREAT BEARD series for example) or something humorous (see the PIG STAMPS for an example) or a version of the popular Infinite Discs Bomber, or something with more of a focus on artistic simplicity (see the STORM stamp as an example), we’ve got something for you, or for your favorite disc golfer!

LARGE GIFT ITEMS

If you want to impress your disc golfer for the holidays, hit them with a big ticket item that they will love but might not have felt ready to purchase on their own.  Here are a few ideas:

ROVIC DISC GOLF CART — One of the newest disc golf carts this year is the ROVIC RV1D which was altered by a golf cart company to handle the demands and needs of disc golfers. It puts the disc golfer’s backpack on wheels and provides extra storage space for additional accessories. It also folds into a more compact size for storage and transport to the disc golf course. It comes in a few color combinations.

CHECK OUT THE ROVIC CART HERE

ZUCA ALL TERRAIN CART — One of the most popular disc golf carts for the frequent disc golfer is the Zuca cart which is built to carry a maximum quantity of discs, provides a place to sit during long rounds, and carries a variety of accessories. There are also many other features which can be added to the Zuca cart, like padded seat cushions, more drink holders, putter pouches, and more. There are color combinations available for any taste.

SEE ZUCA CARTS HERE

MVP ROVER CART — Maybe you don’t want to spend two or three hundred dollars and your disc golfer already has a backpack that he or she likes. You can simply grab them the new MVP ROVER CART to essentially give their backpack a set of wheels so it can be pushed or pulled around the course with ease. There aren’t a lot of bells and whistles with this option, but it gets the job done.

PORTABLE PRACTICE BASKETS — Any disc golfer would be utterly impressed with a new portable disc golf practice basket. There are a wide variety of baskets available on the market by a lot of different manufacturers, all with the intent to provide an easy way for players to practice in their yard, set up small courses, or take with them on camping trips, etc. Here are some of the newest and most popular options:

Black Hole Pro with Transit Bag — The Black Hole Pro is a very popular practice basket by MVP and this year they’ve added a Transit Bag as an easy way to carry the broken-down basket from place to place.

Discraft Chainstar Lite — This is one of the newer portable baskets that is high quality with a few different color options to choose from. For your $150 range, this is one of the best options.

Mach Shift 3-in-1 Portable Basket — This new basket offering from DGA is unique because it can be changed from a standard size that has double-layered chains, to a narrow putting practice basket, to a macro-basket for an even smaller target. For those who want to spend a little more for a variety of configurations, it is the perfect choice. AND IT IS DISCOUNTED UNTIL THE END OF 2019!

DGA Mach Lite — This is our favorite and by far the best-selling collapsible basket. It is easily folded and transported inside a shoulder carry case, yet is very sturdy and well constructed. This year it was released in orange and green as new color options. AND IT IS DISCOUNTED UNTIL THE END OF 2019!

SEE A BUNCH OF PORTABLE BASKET OPTIONS HERE

HYZER DISC RACK — Maybe you’re looking for a way for your disc addict to store their copious amounts of discs. You can help them keep their extra discs or collection organized with the new Hyzer Disc Rack. Think about it… you’ll be helping your disc golfer stay organized while also keeping your own domain a little less cluttered with discs. It’s a win win!

There are a couple of different designs available, including one with the Hyzer Disc Rack branding and another with Infinite Discs logos and branding. The shelf is very easy to build without tools and is designed especially for discs while also including extra hooks on the front for hanging towels and bag tags. The top shelf holds a bag or trophies for display.  While this is an item that might be a little bit outside of the casual disc golf budget, it definitely stands out as an impressive gift for the holiday season.

ADIDAS TERREX SHOES

One of the more popular high-end products on the Infinite Discs website are the Adidas Terrex shoes. These are lightweight, but sturdy outdoor shoes that were designed for handling all kinds of terrain, whether mountainous or groomed parks. They are also able to handle a lot of side-to-side torque that is inflicted upon the shoes of disc golfers when throwing discs at high speeds. The soles are high quality and very long-lasting, plus you can get the most popular models with GTX for extra waterproofing against rain or dew-covered grass so your feet don’t get wet. We’ve selected what we believe are the best shoes for disc golfers from the huge Terrex line.

AX3 — one of the most popular and least expensive options available right now

AX3 GTX — the waterproof version of the popular AX2R

SWIFT R2 — a higher-end shoe that pro disc golfers have loved

SWIFT R2 GTX — the waterproof version of the awesome Swift R2

SKYCHASER LT GTX — this is the highest quality shoe we carry, with a long-lasting construction, waterproofing, and “boost” technology for extreme comfort when worn for long periods

AGRAVIC SPEED — the most lightweight option for fast movers and travel light but want comfort

NOTE: Not all shoe colors and sizes are available. Our selection is somewhat limited after the summertime rush.

LARGER PACKAGE DEALS

We also have a couple of larger package deals that you might enjoy for yourself, or as a gift for another important disc golfer in your life. The Extreme Deals Box comes with a large bag to carry the 15 mystery discs that are included in the box. That’s about $10 per disc plus a free large bag!

EXTREME DEALS BOX ($150)

Or there is a great Complete Disc Golf Set available with the Infinite Discs brand on Amazon.com which would be a welcome gift to new players who want a real boost to get them going:

INFINITE DISCS COMPLETE DISC GOLF SET WITH SLINGER BAG

We also have a set of 8 Infinite Discs branded discs that you can grab if you only need the discs without the accompanying bag. It’s also a great choice for yourself or as a gift.

INFINITE DISCS 8-DISC LINE-UP

 

1-YEAR MEMBERSHIP IN THE VIP CLUB

One of the most exciting things you can give to any hard-core disc golfer or disc collector is a one-year membership in the Infinite Discs VIP Club.  That way, the disc golfer you love will receive a unique, collectible disc every month, automatically, as well as discounts on the Infinite Discs website and access to exclusive releases in the VIP Club Store.

SIGN UP FOR THE MEMBERSHIP HERE (select the pre-paid annual option, or pay month-to-month for as long as you want)

MID-RANGE BUDGET ITEMS

Maybe you don’t have a huge budget, but you want to get your favorite disc golfer something nice that is under $100. Here are a few fun ideas that will fit the bill…

INFINITE DISC SLINGER BAG — The Infinite Disc Slinger is designed for affordability, ease, and comfort for quick disc golf rounds. It provides a quality bag option for beginners as well as experienced players who simply want to grab a dozen discs and hit the course. This is the perfect crossover between traditional shoulder bags and backpacks. You can throw it over your shoulder (the strap can be adjusted for whichever shoulder you prefer), carried in your hand, or slung across your body like popular sling bags.  It is available in black or blue.

LARGE SELECTION OF APPAREL — Whether you’re looking for t-shirts, or sweatshirts, or jackets, or hats, there is a huge selection of apparel options from many brands on the Infinite Discs website. These choices fit any taste of budget. Check out those apparel options HERE

GRIP6 BELTS — One of the hottest new apparel items for disc golfers this year has been the Grip6 line of belts. These are long-lasting, flexible belts that provide comfort as well as dependability. They are designed to last a lifetime. They come in several colors with different style buckles. You can pick a specific waist size, or you can select the “own size” option where an extra long belt can be cut and prepped for your own, specific size.

M-RETRIEVER — Disc Retrievers have always been a good gift idea because pretty much every serious disc golf plays near water or trees and needs a way to get back the discs that have flown astray. The M-Retriever is one of the newest options on the market with a telescopic pole that can extend to an impressive reach and a specially-designed head which cups around the disc rim to pull the disc ashore. Yet some players are hesitant to spring the cash for a retriever that will save money time and time again when considering the number of discs saved. That’s where you come in– give one as a gift and that player will find endless occasions to use it!

Check out other Disc Retrievers HERE

TROOPER BACKPACK — One of the most popular entry-level backpacks comes from Dynamic Discs. The Trooper has been a top seller for any player who wants an inexpensive yet comfortable backpack to carry their discs around the course. Thought it doesn’t come with a lot of extra features, it covers all of the baskets and is perfect for players who have over a dozen discs and want a way to carry them inexpensively.

See Other Inexpensive Backpacks HERE

Disc Golf Books — While there haven’t traditionally been a lot of books available for disc golfers, we’ve been hunting some down. They always make an interesting, less expected gift. The newest addition to our small book selection is the new DISC GOLF REVOLUTION by Jack Tupp.

This is a book that presents disc golf’s irrefutable case as the ideal sport for the 21st century. If you see yourself as part of the ‘Grow the Sport’ movement, The Disc Golf Revolution is for you. Keep it on hand and give copies as a gifts to those who needs to know the full story.

ProPull Disc Golf Trainer — The ProPull resistance band training kit has become a popular item for serious disc golfers who want to improve their throwing speed and strength. It can be used anywhere that the bands can be secured to a pole or tree. Check out the demo video HERE and see if this is the perfect gift for your disc golfer.

STOCKING STUFFERS

These small items would be fun for little gifts to any disc golfer. They don’t take a lot of space, they aren’t expensive, and they can add a little fun to your Christmas morning…

Flight Towel — The Flight Towel is one of the latest trends in disc golf. These towels come with a fob attached, and each fob is made out of the rim of a popular disc. That way, the towel isn’t only good for drying discs, but it can be used as a warm-up tool where the player whips the towel through the air in a throwing motion. That helps warm-up the throwing arm with the player gripping the disc that rim that they love. It’s an interesting and fun accessory that should make any player pleased.

Other Disc Golf Towels — Towels are frequently needed by disc golfers to keep their discs dry, and we’ve got a variety of different towels, from lightweight to thick and absorbent. They can easily be stuffed into any stocking. Plus, there are towels that are branded for just about any manufacturer, so no matter which brand the player likes, there should be a towel just for them.

 

Pyrohyzer Glass Mini Discs — Another fun product that Infinite Discs started carrying this year is the unique glass mini discs by Pyrohyzer. Each mini is handmade and entirely unique. The prices vary depending on the amount of extra features, like “shatter” patterns, swirls, glow-in-the-dark, and etching. Though these glass minis are nice enough to display, they can be used as mini markers during disc golf rounds. They’re definitely a top-notch gift idea that fits into the stocking.  Also available in MICRO MINI sizes.

 

Whale Sac — These little, hand-sized bags are filled with clay to help players dry their hands during disc golf rounds, particularly when it is hot and fingers can lose a grip on the disc. While there are many similar grip-enhancing bags like this on the market, the Whale Sac has been one of the most popular because they are produced by professional disc golfers, and they feature a cool “tail” to use for tying them onto a bag, backpack, or cart.

You can also find a large selection of other grip enhancers HERE

Infinite Discs Metal Mini Marker — When a player is in a tournament, they’ll need to have a mini marker to mark where their disc landed, and what better way to stand out then with a shiny, golden metal mini from Infinite Discs!

Infinite Discs Wooden Mini Marker — Or, if the player wants to mark their lie with something that looks more natural, perhaps a wooden mini marker will stand out? These unique wooden mini markers have the “Infinite Bomber” logo etched into them for a fun, unique appearance.

 

Pocket Discs — Every year we see an increase in sales for Pocket Discs because they are such a fun little idea for disc enthusiasts to throw around the house. They fit in the stocking, or in a pocket, and are hand-woven as a floppy, soft, catch-and-throw disc. There is a regular sized indoor pocket disc for $9.99, or a larger, heavier “El Grande” pocket disc for $19.99 if you want more distance and higher performance.

Friction Gloves — While these might appear to be somewhat expensive gloves at first glance, they are actually worth every dollar for disc golfers who want to play when it is cold outside. They take the bite out of the cold air, but more importantly, they provide extra grip on the disc, even when the plastic is wet. That way, disc golfers can play in the gold without taking gloves off to throw and putting them back on again to warm up. If you don’t want to buy a pair of the Friction Gloves, they are also sold separately for single hands, so that the throwing hand can have the enhanced grip.

We also have the newest line of WARM FRICTION GLOVES which are thicker to keep hands and fingers warm in even lower temperatures which still providing the grip to play the game.

Demogrid Deluxe UV Flashlight

We’ve been carrying UV Flashlights for charging glow-in-the-dark discs for a while now. But this year we discovered the DemoGrid Deluxe UV Flashlight, and it is our new favorite because it has so many features! It has both a UV light for charging discs, plus a white light so you can find your way around the course at night. Plus it has strategically placed magnets so that you can attach it to your metal disc golf cart, the trunk of your car, or whatever you want to keep it in place while you charge up your discs. It has a fun handle and will fit into pockets of most disc golf backpacks.

But if you want something a little more simple, check out all of our UV Flashlights for Night Rounds.

GIFT CARDS

Of course, if you’re out of ideas, or you simply prefer to let your disc golfer pick their own discs or accessories, you can count on gift cards. Infinite Discs has two options for gift cards:

E-GIFT CARD — Delivers a code to the specified email address which can be used to purchase product on the website.

PHYSICAL GIFT CARD — We ship a plastic gift card to you so that you can wrap it, put it in a stocking, or hand it to the recipient.

WE WANT YOUR INPUT

The DiscDiver Golden Retriever is designed to help disc golfers drag the bottom of those pesky ponds and lakes to retrieve their lost discs. These are excellent tools that almost every disc golfer wishes they had at one point or another. These is also the slightly altered Disc Claw which accomplishes the mission nicely.

Trooper Backpack — One of the most popular entry-level backpacks comes from Dynamic Discs.

Pro Tour Trading Cards — These fun cards are a great surprise for any fan of professional disc golf. There are 9-card booster packs as well as 65-card decks and they carry a mixed variety of cards featuring the top professional players, top courses, and top disc golf awards. Plus they can be traded with other pro disc golf fans to build a complete collection. You can buy several boosters to pass around to all of the disc golfers in your life.

Disc Golf Towels — Towels are frequently needed by disc golfers to keep their discs dry, and we’ve got a variety of different towels, from lightweight to thick and absorbent. They can easily be stuffed into any stocking.

They’re definitely a top-notch gift idea that fits into the stocking.  Also available in MICRO MINI sizes.

Stress Mini / Knee Pad Mini — These unique mini markers were designed to take away your stress before or after putting by squeezing them to your heart’s content. They squash into your hand but are sized just right for marking your disc’s lie. But they’ve also become quite popular as knee pads during rounds when players need to kneel on the hard ground to put from under a tree or out of shrubs, etc. Thus they have become a multi-purpose mini disc. Plus, they fly nicely too if you want to play a fun indoor or outdoor came of catch.

Whale Sac — These little, hand-sized bags are filled with clay to help players dry their hands during disc golf rounds, particularly when it is hot and fingers can lose a grip on the disc.

If you’re looking for the perfect gift for a disc golfer, we’re here to help you out! There are a lot of great ideas that you may not have considered. But first, let’s talk about the thing that disc golfers love the most… DISCS!

NEW AND SPECIAL EDITION DISCS

Here are some of the new discs for the 2017 year which have stood out as popular sellers and could make the perfect gift.

MVP RELATIVITY – This is a great choice for players who love to test their long distance throwing abilities. It is the most understable of MVP’s highest-speed disc class. That means that it can be a fun disc to push the distance limits even for relatively new players. But if you’re looking for a distance bomber that requires serious power, better for a very experienced player, you could go for maximum overstability with the MVP LIMIT instead, or choose the middle ground with the excellent distance driver, the MVP TELEPORT. All of these were new, maximum speed drivers released in 2017.

DISCMANIA TDX – Discmania continues to grow their brand with excellent discs for a variety of players. The TDX is a new understable driver that works great for players at all levels. For newer players, it will help increase distance. For experienced players, it is a great utility disc for anhyzer lines and lower-speed control shots that can hold a straight line. Also check out the new CD3 power driver for more experienced players, mixing control with distance. Or consider the new the P3X as a nice driving putter. All of these were released by Discmania in 2017.

PRODIGY X3 – Prodigy increased their line of power distance drivers in 2017. The standard edition for experienced players would be the X3. For newer or intermediate players, the X4 or the X5 would be better choices, being more understable. For those players who throw with a lot of power, go to the X2. As a little reminder, the Prodigy discs are numbered from low which are overstable, to higher numbers which are more understable (easier to throw). So, X1 would be the most overstable (experienced) to X5 being the most understable (easier to throw).

WESTSIDE CROWN – Perhaps you are looking for a good, general purpose putter that will feel instantly comfortable and will fly right for almost all players. The Crown was one of the more popular new putters of 2017. It is beaded and similar to other popular putters like the Dynamic Discs Judge or the Gateway Wizard. All of those are good, beaded putters if you want to give a gift of putting consistency. Give them a try.

 

 

DYNAMIC DISCS DEPUTY – Another one of the hot, new putters of 2017 was the Deputy which was introduced as the putter for the Trilogy Challenge recreational tournaments. With the signature backing of professional player, Paige Pierce, this putter got a lot of momentum right away. It is a slightly understable, straight-flying putter that will work for players at all levels, but will likely be a gentle, accurate putter for beginning players.

 

 

DGA TREMOR – The Tremor by DGA was the next in a line of excellent discs that DGA has released lately. The Tremor is an easy-throw mid-range for great control shots. It will work as a go-to disc for new players who are concerned more with accuracy than with huge distance. It will also work wonderfully for controlled anhyzer shots for experienced players. It is one of the stand-out midrange disc releases of 2017. If you want a more overstable mid-range with predictable and accurate fade, then go to the other new release from DGA, the Quake. Both are excellent and actually compliment one another very well in any bag.

MINT DISCS ALPHA – Mint Discs launched as a disc brand in 2017 and the Alpha was their flagship disc. It is a power driver – a hybrid between a distance driver and a control driver. As far as introductory discs go, this one was a real winner. For intermediate and experienced players it can quickly become a go-to disc for many situations. It can be thrown for great distance, but can also be used for shorter control shots that need dependable and predictable fade. Some players have claimed that they were able to handle almost all of their driver needs with a handful of Alpha’s in their bag. It makes an excellent give idea, since it is a disc that many players have yet to try, but will most likely impress.

LATITUDE 64 TRIDENT – This disc makes a great gift idea because it is a model that was announced to be discontinued by Latitude 64. Though they aren’t making stock editions of the Trident at this time, they did make a special run of Gold Line Burst, Retro Burst and Moonshine (Glow) Tridents for the 2017 holiday season, and they are pretty! They look good, and they’ll be hard to find later, so it’s a great gift idea.

 

AFFORDABLE DISC GOLF BACKPACKS

Another gift idea that is more of a possibility this year than ever before is an affordable disc golf backpacks. For several years, all of the major backpacks on the market were very pricey, ranging from $100 to $200 or more. That made the backpack more of a luxury item. But several bags have become available in 2017 which have dropped the price for simple, yet functional backpacks. Check these out as possible gifts!

INFINITE DISCS STEALTH BAG $29.99 – At just about thirty dollars, the new STEALTH BAG is a unique, comfortable, and fun bag for any disc golf who wants to grab a few discs and go for a quick round of disc golf. It is light-weight, has several pockets, holds a water bottle, and fits 4-10 discs. It is a great backpack for rugged courses where players would not want to lug around heavy backpacks with many discs. A 2-liter water bladder can be purchased separately to add to the bag for a great water supply on hot days or rough courses. Or, the Stealth Bag can also be purchased with the 2-liter Bladder Included for $37.99 (only $8 more for this great added feature). There are four colors available: Red, Light Blue, Green, and Black, all with grey highlights.

DYNAMIC DISCS TROOPER $39.99 – At just under $40, the Trooper is a solid, affordable backpack that first 18+ discs in its main pocket, plus additional putters in the top pocket. It comes with a side pocket and drink holder. It also features padded straps and back panel for comfort. It is a great backpack with all the added features for the price. It comes generally in grey/black but with three versions featuring different colored highlights: Red, Green, and Blue.

 

DISCRAFT TOURNAMENT BACKPACK BAG $79.99 – At a higher pricetag than the other economy bags, it the Discraft Tournament Backpack still falls under the $100 price range and is a high-quality bag for frequent use. It is durable, comfortable, and carries 18-22 discs inside a water-resistant, sturdy structure with reinforced stitching. It has extra pockets and a front putter pouch. If you want to spend a little more for a quality backpack, but don’t have a large budget this one makes an excellent choice.

A LOT OF DISCS FOR ONE LOW PRICE

The INFINITE DEALS BOX is one of the most popular gift items on the entire Infinite Discs website. It is a fun way for players to explore several discs that may or may not be familiar to them. The box includes seven discs, including at least one putter, one or two mid-range discs, and a variety of overstable and understable drivers. There are at least three brands represented in each box. The box may include some mis-prints or tournament stamps, but also includes stock stamps and some limited edition stamps. All of the discs are premium plastic. There are no guarantees of what brands, disc models, or weights and colors, but for the adventurous disc golfer, the surprise is worth it! And if you think about it, at only $67.88 it comes to less than $10 per disc for premium plastic discs.

MYSTERY DISCS AND MYSTERY SWAG

Maybe you aren’t interested in picking up a box of seven mystery discs in a Deals Box, but you DO want to include at least a taste of unpredictable mystery in your order. Infinite Discs now allows you to add a MYSTERY DISC or MYSTERY SWAG to every order during checkout. Watch your shopping cart for the easy click-to-add features. For only $12 you can receive a premium plastic mystery disc in your order (will NOT be a misprint or x-out). Or for only $8 you can add mystery swag which could include fun items like t-shirts, towels, keychains, beanies, etc.  The Mystery Disc and Mystery Swag can be purchased independently on the website, or simply as an add-on during checkout.

COOL ACCESSORIES AND “STOCKING STUFFERS”

When it comes to disc golf, there are a lot of little extras that can be added to any order for potential gifts. Check out the ACCESSORIES PAGE or the APPAREL PAGE for a lot of options at all price levels. Here are a few fun ideas for your consideration.

FRICTION GLOVES – These gloves are specially designed for players who want to play disc golf in adverse conditions, where hands could be cold, or grip could be an issue. These gloves help keep a hold of the disc and throw accurately, even if the weather is cold and snowy.
Friction gloves are available as a pair, or they can be purchased individually if the player only wants one glove for their throwing hand. Check the sizes and make sure you get the left or right hand if you buy them as singles.

 

POCKET DISCS – This fun, woven discs are not necessarily for disc golf, but for disc fans, they’re a blast to throw around. You can play catch, or throw them at targets, or even toss them around the house, since they are soft and less likely to hurt people or damage property. You can go for the fun, smaller size Indoor Pocket Disc or the larger, heavier El Grande if you want to go for distance. Plus, click the “Select Yours” button to browse through all the fun designs and patterns!

 

SPORTSACKS – There are a lot of different varieties of grip enhancing sacks around. One of the most popular styles is the Sportsack, and you can get them with logos from several disc brands. Of course, we prefer the Infinite Discs Sportsack. They can increase your grip before you throw on those hot summer days when your palms and fingers are getting sweaty and slippery.

Other styles on the Accessories page can be found that are filled with everything from sand, to dirt, to chalk. One of the most popular is the WHALE SAC because of the “tail” on the whale that can be tied onto a cart or backpack frame.

UV FLASHLIGHT GLOW DISC CHARGER – One fun aspect of night disc golf is using glow-in-the-dark discs or glow tape. That usually requires carrying around a flashlight. But if you haven’t tried a UV Flashlight before, you’re in for a treat! This handy flashlight lights up glow-in-the-dark discs in mere seconds. Plus it can help to spot those discs out on the fairway without casting a lot of white light around. It adds a whole new level of fun to your glow disc golf experience.

 

MINI DISCS GALORE! – It goes without saying that Mini Discs / Mini Markers are a huge part of the disc golf experience, especially when involved in tournament play. But recently they’ve become even more fun with a large selection of larger mini’s that can be thrown for respectable distances. Check out the huge selection of mini discs available. Some of the most fun ones we’ve seen lately are actually minis and coasters, from VIBRAM. Click to “Select Yours” and look at the fun designs!

 

DISC RETRIEVERS – Every disc golfer knows that they loose discs in hard-to-reach places sometimes. Water hazards can especially be a pain. That is when disc retrievers come in very hand. These make great gifts because they are items that every disc golfer wishes they had at certain moments, but rarely think to buy. The DISC GATOR is an extendable pole with a trap that grabs discs, while the DISCDIVER GOLDEN RETRIEVER and DISC CLAW are worked with a string and a trap that are tossed out into water and dragged along the ground to “fish” for the lost disc.

MINI BASKETS

One of the fun developments in the disc golf scene is the revolution for mini discs and mini baskets. You can now get small baskets that will catch mini markers, macro (flying) mini discs, as well as tiny, primarily decorative baskets to put on your desk at work or in your living room to show you passion for the sport. The smallest is the BLACK HOLE MICRO which is only 6 1/2 inches tall. The next size up, while still being a small basket, is the MICRO RECRUIT standing at 13 inches tall with a diameter of 6 inches (this one perhaps is the best as a decorative basket in a room).

If you want baskets that catch your mini markers, then go for the BLACK HOLE MINI or the MINI RECRUIT. Innova also entered the mini basket market this year with the DISCatcher Mini.

DREAM GIFTS – CARTS AND BASKETS

Of course, there are those big, extra special gifts that fall into the more pricey category, but that really makes a disc golfer feel important. There are Portable Baskets which allow every player to set up their own practice rounds or putting practices. Or there are DISC GOLF CARTS which allow players to push around large numbers of discs in tournaments with the luxury of a portable seat and lots of run for their other accessories.

One of the new 2017 baskets on the scene is the DISCRAFT CHAINSTAR LITE. Or consider one of our long-time best-selling baskets for portability is the DGA MACH LITE which is a sturdy basket that is functional as well as easy to fold up and carry around in the accompanying pouch. You can throw it in the backseat or trunk and take it wherever you’d like for a new disc golf adventure. Or, you can try the brand new 2017 release, a DGA MACH SHIFT which can be configured into three different sizes, all in one basket.

As we take a look at the disc golfers in our lives and try to imagine what they could possibly need or want as a gift for the holiday season, or for birthdays, or just because we love them, it can sometimes be difficult. We see them trudging across courses with a bag loaded with discs, and we see their car trunks or bedroom floors covered with all those extra discs that they can’t fit into the bag. We are left to wonder, what more could they possibly need? First of all, remember that gift giving is not always about “needs” but about that little extra item that they would appreciate. It is about going that extra mile for somebody we love. So, let’s take a quick look at some of the possibilities that you may not have considered when it comes to finding the perfect gift for your disc golfer.

INEXPENSIVE GIFTS AND STOCKING-STUFFERS

Dirt Bags – Who wouldn’t want a gift called a “dirt bag”? These grip bags are becoming more and more popular with disc golfers who want to keep their hands dry and ready to grip their discs with more confidence. It helps those sweaty palms and slick fingers prepare for the upcoming throw. You can actually get many bags intended to do the trick, including Sportsacks, Whale Sacs, Chalk Bags, or Confidence Bags.

Zen and the Art of Disc Golf – This little book has become a sort of cult classic among disc golfers. It teaches players how to come to terms with their game, overcome their weaknesses, and reach a peaceful state of mind when out on the course. If your players loves good advice and tips for improving their mental approach to the game, then this could be a great gift for them.

UV Flashlight Glow Disc Charger – As we head into winter months where the daylight hours are much shorter for a lot of regions, some players still want to play in the dark. Glow disc golf is actually quite fun, adding a new twist to the game we all love. There are many disc models available in glow plastic, and nothing charges those glow discs faster than a UV Flashlight. Regular flashlights can take much longer to charge glow plastic, but this powerful LED UV Flashlight makes them shine almost instantly. It also quickly charges glow stickers and glow tape.

UFO Glow Tape Rings – If a disc golfer has favorite discs that they insist on throwing at night, even if they aren’t made of glow-in-the-dark plastic, then these UFO rings are perfect! Each sheet has different sized sticker rings that can be placed on any disc to turn it into a glow disc. Light up three or four discs per sheet with the different sized rings. These stickers light up instantly with a UV Flashlight, and hold a charge for a long time. Take those favorite discs and play in the dark!

Infinite Discs Bomber T-Shirt – The “Bomber” stamp from Infinite Discs was extremely popular on many disc models from several manufacturers. Now the stamp design is available on a t-shirt for those players who like to model their love for Infinite Discs, or who simply like to be known as a player that can really bomb a disc across the fairway.  These heather red t-shirts are available in several sizes and at an inexpensive price of only $11.99 as a great gift idea.

Indoor Pocket Disc – This fun little novelty disc can be shoved into a package with any other gift, into a pocket, or into a stocking. It’s a great idea for a disc enthusiast that gives them something to throw around the house when it’s just too darn cold to go outside. They can target items around your home without causing damage, and it flies much better than you’d expect. Pull it out of your pocket and let it rip!

Aside from those items, you can always choose from a large variety of mini discs or “mini markers” that come in handy during tournament play, or just as a collectible. Plus, there are all kinds of little accessory ideas as well as a variety of apparel, like hats, shirts, wristbands, etc. that you can give to your disc golf enthusiast.

MODERATELY PRICED GIFT IDEAS

Maybe you want to spend a little more on a gift for your hopelessly addicted disc golfer, but it’s a struggle to come up with an idea that will really surprise them. Here are a few things to consider.

Infinite Deals Box – For only $67.88, you can give your favorite disc golfer something that they can never get enough of…more discs! But this is different than grabbing discs off of a store shelf, because this box comes with an element of complete surprise. The deals boxes feature seven discs in premium plastic, including a putter, mid-range discs, as well as overstable and understable drivers, including limited editions, funky misprints, and other really cool discs that they might never have thrown before. Plus, the price amounts to less than $10 per disc, which is a great deal no matter how you slice it for high-quality plastics. It gives them something new to explore, making it a disc golf adventure in a box.

Black Hole Mini Basket – The basket which serves as the target, or “hole” for disc golfers is about as iconic as it gets– it is the image that represents the sport. That is why the new trend of mini baskets is becoming very popular among those who love disc golf. No, it is NOT a functioning basket that would go in your yard or in a park. Regular sized discs can’t even stay in this thing when they hit the chains. This is a basket that is A) designed as a decorative tribute to the sport you love, and B) is a full-metal replica of an actual basket which can catch mini discs / mini markers, just for fun. So, you can get one of these things for your disc golf fanatic, and it will add a decorative element to their favorite room or man cave, plus you can throw in some mini discs that they can putt from the sofa, and they’ll think it is awesome.  You could also get the extra-small, Micro Basket which won’t even hold mini discs, but it fits perfectly on a work desk as a symbol of their favorite sport and a reminder of where they’d rather be…on the course.

Prodigy Practice Bag – Of course, the disc golfer in your life has a bag to carry his or her discs, or they have a backpack that they absolutely love. But regardless of what they are using to carry discs around the course, they probably have a lot of extra discs laying around somewhere, maybe even scattered in a space that you would rather not see piled with plastic.  This is the perfect, affordable bag (only $24 each) for storing those extra discs! It is made merely to store large quantities of discs in a simple, compact bag that can be moved from one place to another, or tucked into a car trunk or closet. It will help your disc golfer be more organized when it comes to storing their endless supply of discs.

Disc Gator – The Disc Gator is a simple, yet brilliant idea as a disc golf accessory that almost every player has wished to have at some point during their games. It is a telescopic pole with a rigged clamp that attaches to the end. It is used to reach as far as eleven feet into the pond, creek, prickly bushes, or tree branches to grab a disc that would otherwise be unreachable.

DiscDiver Golden Retriever – Here is another device that is specifically designed to retrieve discs from water hazards. The Golden Retriever sinks straight to the bottom and has a long line which can be used to drag it back to shore. It may take several tries to actually catch the disc and drag it back, so it is a bit like fishing…a game in itself…to retrieve that disc. But it ultimately saves a lot of money (not to mention keeps the clothing dry) when the player is able to pull their discs out of the water.

Nite Ize Flashflight LED Night Disc Golf Set – Perhaps you’re looking for a gift that will allow your beloved disc golfer to play at night in a fun, exciting way. This three-disc set will do the trick! It includes a putter, a mid-range, and a distance driver disc that all come with built-in LED lights that can either be set to a single color, or to rotate in “disco mode”. The discs actually fly quite well and are very easy to spot in the dark. It’s a great gift idea for the disc golfer that wants to take their night game a step beyond glow-in-the-dark plastic.

GO AHEAD…BLOW THE WAD

Zuca Backpack Cart – If the disc golfer you love already owns their ideal backpack, but the whole cart trend is making them feel like they’re being left behind, you can upgrade that backpack by giving them this Backpack Cart by Zuca. You simply push your backpack into the cart frame, and you’ve got a new cart! The player no longer needs to carry that backpack around the course, but can simply push or pull their huge selection of discs around the green like a pro. The backpack cart sells for $194.99 and for only $100 more, you could just pick the perfect color combination for a new, fully built Zuca Cart and they can throw the old backpack away.

Luxury E3 Bag – The E3 is the latest and greatest professional level backpack from Latitude 64. It can hold around thirty discs and has all of the extra pockets, straps, drink holders, and putter pockets that a player needs to carry all of their discs and accessories. It is available in many nice color schemes and is actually quite comfortable to wear considering the size of the bag.

There are quite a few nice backpacks available, if you’re looking for something more suited to your disc golfer’s tastes.
