Updates to the ADG Grants Program

We launched the Grants Program in 2015. Since its inception, ADG has provided financial assistance towards the installation of multiple courses across the country as well as supporting school programs and community events.

We are making some changes to the Grants Program for 2021.

Applications will now be accepted throughout the year. The ADG Board will review applications bi-annually in February and August of each year.

If you have an idea or opportunity that needs financial assistance from the ADG, you can find more information as well as the grant application on our dedicated Grants Program page.

ADG COVID-19 statement – 18 March 2020

All ADG sanctioned events are suspended from today until 18th May 2020. This includes all A, B, C and X tier tournaments and leagues. ADG will be reviewing this situation and extending the suspension if needed.

Any government restrictions will supersede this statement.

The ADG tour events which are impacted by this suspension are:

  • The Stony Creek Revival
  • Baw Baw Alpine Disc Golf Classic
  • Yeronga Memorial
  • Sunshine Coast Open + WGE
  • Victorian Disc Golf Open
  • South Australian Open 2020

At the moment these events will not be rescheduled however this may be a possibility later in the year depending on how the situation progresses. We have placed the ADG tour on hold until we are better placed to make a decision about whether it can continue.

Our decision comes on the back of PDGA suspending sanctioned events worldwide AFDA have also suspended all on-field Flying Disc Activities until 18th May 2020

We appreciate your understanding in these uncertain times. We will do our best to communicate any updates as soon as possible.
