Invented by DGA, the first frisbee golf basket was made 35 years ago when the sport also got officially formalized. It is made of a chain holder attached to the top of a pole which is cemented directly to the ground. The chains attached to the chain holder hangs down to a basket. A player’s score is calculated on the number of discs that enter the basket.
A standard disc golf course comes with either nine or eighteen baskets. For schools and camps one could even buy a portable one.
Frisbee disc basket was invented in 1975 by ED Headrick with his son Ken who jointly started the company named DGA. Before this invention, discs were thrown over light poles and trees. The first basket that was made by DGA had 10 chains which hanged in a parabolic shape. Many attempts and trials were needed till the present structure of a Frisbee golf basket was formed.
