513 Disc Golfers across the country joined together last weekend. They played 15 events, all linked together by the PDGA ratings system, for the 3rd Aussie Disc Golf Day . The disc design this year was created by Western Australian Koreng Noongar artist, Robin Keen. We named it the Waalitj, which is the Noongar world for eagle. The design signifies a great gathering of people, with the Waalitj, who is the protector of the earth (boodjar) and sky (gudjyt), watching over us all. $1 for every Waalitj will be donated to the Waalitj Foundation, which works to provide educational and vocational opportunities for indigenous youth.
Congratulations to all of our winners from across the country.
Every once in a while, an opportunity comes along to make your voice heard. For Disc Golfers in Australia that time is now. The Australian Flying Disc Association (AFDA), are embarking on a new strategic plan in 2023 and part of that planning process involves taking the pulse of all flying disc sports in Australia through this survey.
AFDA are our representative body in Australia and the decisions that arise in this plan will, one way or the other, have a huge impact on Australian Disc Golf; especially in areas like coaching, school programs and development. 10-minutes of your time to complete this survey and let AFDA know you are a disc golfer will quite possibly be the best thing you could do for our sport this year.
