The Maritime Disc Golf Association was formed in late 2014 after the first annual Iron Leaf. The organization was certified and a board formed on Febraury 22nd, 2015. Our first mandate was to create a Pro/Am Tour that would take place in three provinces (NB,NS,PE) and encourage disc golfers from all over the Maritimes to get together and grow the game. Our first year we had 25 members and regularly had that many players show up at events.
In our second year we have already surpassed that number and look to host our biggest event yet, The Eastern Canadian Disc Golf Championship. Our members are responsible for 80% of all the disc golf courses in the Maritimes and are the driving force behind at least another 6 currently proposed courses. We have taught the game to over 1000 school children in the local areas and have hosted over 30 events including over 10 PDGA certified events. Our top female Amateur player placed 12th in worlds and our top MPO finished 23 at this years Canadian Nationals.
Our organization has its sights set on making this game fly in the Maritimes!
