In its desire to see a Houck-designed course developed in Carrollton, GA, the Carrollton Disc Golf Club along with the support of HouckDesign rallied thousands of Facebook voters to submit daily votes over a several week period for a State Farm Neighborhood Assist Grant…and won! This is the first grant ever won for disc golf by public voting which is testimony to the sports ever growing popularity and might even be considered as evidence of the sport’s evolution into a main stream outdoor recreation activity.
The PDGA Innovation Grant Program was created in 2008 to increase and promote the awareness of the sport of disc golf and the Professional Disc Golf Association. Applicants are encouraged to think outside of the box to develop innovative and unique programs which will promote the sport and increase participation.
The deadline for submission of applications for the first round of 2014 Innovation Grants is June 1, 2014.
