Disc Retrievers

Any disc golf bag is incomplete without a disc retriever.

Disc Golf Bags for All Levels of Players

All of us have that one friend who develops a penchant for a sport overnight. Disc golf surely has got that flare that can captivate any new player overnight. For all those beginners who are new in the game and want to build their gaming gear and accessories, a disc golf starter bag can be a great way of getting all that they need in a single bag. A good starter bag disc golf gift should contain different types of discs such as putters, mid rangers, drivers etc. along with a convenient carry bag.  Here (link within the website with a related article) you can see what kind of discs are better suited for disc golf beginners.

Similarly, you can curate a bag for all levels of disc golfers including intermediate and advanced pro level players.

Disc Golf Grip Enhancers

Disc golf grip enhancers help the players hold onto their discs when throwing in wet conditions (rain, sweat, melting snow etc.). Since disc golf is an outdoor sport, the players usually play in circumstances which often lead to slippery hands and a compromised grip. Your grip enhancer is going to be a great and unique gift for a disc golfer because it will come handy when nothing else is working. Grip enhancers either take moistures away from the hands and disc surface (sacs) or create a water repellent coat similar to the wax surfers use on their boards.

Disc Golf Shoes

Shoes are quite a personal gift and many people prefer buying shoes of their choice as they have certain habits and comforts in mind. We recommend buying a disc golf shoes gift only if you know the person very well. A disc golf shoe is something that is durable, can withstand rough tumbling runs of the game and is comfortable to wear. Disc golfers prefer shoes that have a great grip, are water resistant and can stand up to the long walks without injuring your foot. 

Portable Disc Golf Basket

A basket is a target used on a disc golf course as a sign of completing one hole on the course. The basket is made up of 18 to 40 chains that act as a trapper, a basket assembly, and a metal pole that is either connected to a portable base or anchored permanently in the ground. A professional portable disc golf basket is the one that can stand on its own on the ground without needing to be cemented. Disc golfers love to have a portable basket of their own so that they can create their own holes and practice their game in different fields and on different ranges. It can be played outdoors, in the grounds, as well as inside the house in the yard and even in an indoor space. Disc golf portable baskets come in lite as well as in heavy duty designs. The portable baskets lite are generic in nature, most of the pros have already played with them and the beginners will love to have one (it can be an excellent practicing companion). Heavy duty baskets on the other hand are some specific designs, if your gift is a pre-planned, well-discussed disc golf gift then you might consider discussing with the intended receiver as they may have something particular in mind. Here are some of the ideas for portable disc golf baskets for your convenience.
