The PDGA Innovation Grant Program was created 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. Twelve applications were received by the PDGA office prior to the December 1st deadline for consideration for the second wave of these $500 grants to be awarded in 2014.
We're extremely happy and proud to announce the recipients of the five PDGA Innovation Grants have been selected!
John Houck's current article in discgolfer magazine clarified that we're really talking about "risk versus reward" instead of the more common phrase "risk and reward" in course design. In a similar way, disc golf is "players versus courses" where course designers serve as proxies to try and make sure their courses challenge players.
