Sport Fund Recipient Spotlight

Windsor Disc Golf

After a series of meetings with community members, it was evident that a disc golf course was in high demand in the town of Windsor. Since establishing a new club, the Maritime Disc Golf Association has witnessed steady growth and continues to draw attention throughout the valley. Today, the club boasts 500 casual members and 100 official members.

With the assistance of Sport Fund, Windsor Disc Golf was able to purchase new equipment, establish a more efficient programming model, and increase their official membership by seven percent.  “Sport Fund was a major contributor in helping to get a brand new public disc golf course open in Windsor.  That course has had a ton of positive feedback and many new players.  This has been one of our most successful courses (and projects) in our three-year history” said Maritime Disc Golf Association President, Ben Smith. There are currently seven disc golf courses across the province, click here for a complete list of locations.

Sport Fund supports the growth of sport at the community level by relieving the financial stress associated with start-up costs and equipment. Go to the Sport Nova Scotia website to learn more about how Sport Fund can help your organization.
