Disc golf baskets

Disc golf baskets are the most important element of disc golf courses worldwide. They come in different versions, and are also available in transportable versions for training at home in the garden. The lightest of the disc golf baskets are made to be taken out when they are to be used and then packed away again, while the large models can withstand standing outside all year round.

History of the disc golf basket

Disc golf was played before the disc golf basket as we know it today was invented. In that way, disc golf is a very natural sport, and competing for who can hit a particular tree or other object with a disc has existed before the basket came into being. The invention of the modern disc golf basket happened in 1978 when Ed Headricks obtained a patent for his "Flying disc entrapment device".
