Our Legacy

Founded in 1990, the BC Disc Golf Association (BCDGA) has been a dynamic force in the disc golf community in British Columbia. For over three decades, we’ve dedicated ourselves to promoting and nurturing this vibrant sport. Our legacy is built on passion, commitment, and an unwavering dedication to disc golf enthusiasts across the province.

Our Community

Representing over 2,000 members, BCDGA stands as a testament to the diversity and vibrancy of the disc golf community. From players and enthusiasts to supporters, we’re united by our shared love for the sport and our commitment to its growth and success in British Columbia.

What We Do

Community Building

The more we know each other, the better we can grow the sport together.

Our initiatives focus on bringing together players from all walks of life, creating a supportive and inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome. We facilitate connections, foster a sense of belonging, and celebrate the shared passion for disc golf that unites us.


The safety and well-being of our members are paramount.

We provide comprehensive insurance coverage for all registered clubs and events under the BCDGA umbrella. We ensure that our community can confidently organize and participate in events. From tags to doubles, we prioritize our member’s safety and security.

Disc Golf Advocacy and Outreach

As ambassadors of disc golf, we take great pride in introducing this dynamic sport to new audiences.

Our outreach programs target schools and other community groups who are unfamiliar with disc golf. Through these efforts, we aim to educate, engage, and inspire a new generation of disc golf players, expanding our community and sharing the joys of the sport.

Government Grants

In our journey toward becoming a recognized Provincial Sports Organization, we are currently able to access a limited range of government grants. These grants play a crucial role in supporting our initiatives and events. We continue to work diligently towards achieving full PSO status, which will open the door to more substantial funding opportunities, allowing us to further our mission and support the disc golf community.

Event Coordination

BCDGA is at the forefront of organizing and coordinating key disc golf events across the province. From the BC Provincials to the annual Duck Golf Series, our events provide a platform for competition, networking, and community engagement. These gatherings are not just tournaments; they are celebrations of disc golf and its vibrant community.
