2020 hasn’t exactly gone as planned, right? But we’re hoping to bring the spirit back a bit this weekend with another annual installment of our favorite celebration: National Disc Golf Day, which takes place on Saturday, August 1.
And to make up for some of this year’s heartache, we’ve decided to extend the festivities with a weekend-long virtual tournament that will bring together every disc golfer in America on the same leaderboard.
How many times have you listened to the radio and heard the DJ talking about how today is “National Junk Food Day” or “National Tape Measure Day” or “National Pet Fire Safety Day”? Those are all real National Days by the way, all of which are from earlier this month. So, why not a "National Disc Golf Day"? Surely there are as many disc golf enthusiasts as there are tape measure enthusiasts right?
