About the ADG

We are the official representative in Australia for two of the world’s largest Flying Disc bodies. The Australian Flying Disc Association (AFDA) with over 3,000 members and the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) with over 70,000 active worldwide members. We are also affiliated with WFDF.

We are run by players for players. We support any Disc Golf activity from any group in Australia whilst operating constitutionally as a branch of AFDA with financial and decision making autonomy. As such we are part of an impressive infrastructure with automatic insurance, Federal recognition and other aspects outlined in this site.

From 2004 we are the official organiser of the Australian and State Disc Golf Championships
