Niagara Region Disc Golf (www.nrdg.org) would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the exciting world of Disc Golf! Founded in 1988, NRDG, has been organizing and sponsoring Disc Golf events, locally, for two decades. Within the past 8 years, we have witnessed an unprecedented growth in disc sports in our area. With our efforts, the support of the New York State Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Department, Erie County Parks and numerous private contributions, we have financed, designed and installed five new courses within our region. Player numbers, professional tournaments, charity events, clinics, leagues, fundraisers and the like have increased dramatically as a result of this growth.
Niagara Region Disc Golf is an organized club managed by a group of professional individuals from the Niagara Region. The goal is to promote the growth of the sport in our area. Our success has come from having a good working relationship with the State of New York Parks, Erie County Parks, local businesses and the hard work of many individuals.
