5 Great Disc Golf Gift Ideas For Any Disc Golfer


Selecting good gifts for Disc golfers can be very difficult.


Firstly, its hard to find the best disc golf gifts when there are literally hundreds (thousands?) of different disc golf products on the market, all claiming to be the “best.”

Secondly, Disc Golf is FULL of esoteric jargon and lingo that can make the gift selection process very confusing.

If this sounds familiar, you’ve come to the right place.

In this guide, we’ll cut through the noise and provide can’t-miss disc golf gift ideas that your special someone is sure to love!

If you are specifically looking for the best “starter set” for someone who is new to the game, be sure to check out our 3-Disc Foundation Guide to learn everything you need to know about Beginner sets.

Top 5 Disc Golf Gift Ideas


Gift Rule #1: Avoid “Drivers,” Go with “Short-Game.”

Disc Golf Drivers are the discs designed for maximum flight distance.  The exact criteria for a “good” driver, however, are very specific to an individual player’s throwing style, experience level, and release velocity. Because of this, Drivers are typically hit-or-miss when given as gifts.

Midrange Discs and Putters, on the other hand, have specific characteristics that are beneficial to practically any player, thereby making them much better gift ideas!


Best Disc Option #1: Putting Disc

What to look for in Putter:

  • Straight flight
  • Excellent grip
  • High wind resistance

Recommended Putting Model: Innova Yeti Pro Aviar (170-175 gram weight)


INNOVA Yeti Pro Aviar Putt & Approach Golf Disc [Colors May Vary] - 173-175g
  • Colors may vary
  • Pro Plastic
  • Flight Ratings: Speed 2, Glide 3, Turn 0, Fade 1


The Aviar has the lowest possible Fade rating (meaning it delivers very straight flights at putting speeds), the XT plastic uses elastomers to give the player excellent grip, and the heavy 170-175g weight class ensures maximum wind resistance.

To further prove its world-class performance, the Innova Aviar has been used to win more PDGA World Championships than all other putters combined.

Best Disc Option #2: Midrange Disc

The Midrange disc is what players use in between the Drive and the Putt.  Its goal is to get the disc as close to the basket as possible to give the player a short, easy putt.

What to look for in Midrange:

  • Consistent flight path
  • Excellent distance control

Recommended Midrange Model: Innova DX Roc 3 (165-169 gram weight)


Innova - Champion Discs DX ROC Golf Disc, 170-174gm
  • Best choice for: Experienced players utility disc, Hyzer shots and Anhyzer shots
  • The number one professional mid-range disc. It is very reliable at the high speeds that pros throw. It ages slowly, becoming an excellent slow turning disc as it wears. Is suitable for beginners and pros alike
  • Colors may vary
  • DX material offers widest selection of weights
  • Speed 4, Glide 4, Turn 0 and Fade 3


Like the Aviar above, the Roc is a top professional player pick and has been used to win 19 total world championships.

The Roc’s highly overstable flight rating ensures very consistent flight paths at high speeds, and its high fade performance delivers a predictable end-of-flight hook to accurately control distance.

For versatility, the optimal Roc will weigh slightly less than the Aviar, thereby allowing the player to also use the Roc as a precision driver on short holes.

Gift Rule #2: Support Home Disc Golfing!

How? With a home Disc Golf Basket!

Portable home baskets give players the ability to do so many things, like:

  • Practicing putting
  • Setting-up a short course around the yard
  • Playing the disc-golf version of “H.O.R.S.E.”

With home-baskets, finding the right balance of functionality and performance is critical. If the basket is too heavy, it becomes difficult to move around the yard, but if it is too light or has too few chains it doesn’t have the feel of a “real” basket.


Recommended Portable Basket: MVP Black Hole – Practice Model


MVP Disc Sports Black Hole Pro 24-Chain Portable Disc Golf Basket Target
  • 24 HIGH VISIBILITY zinc coated heavy duty course weighted chains
  • 12 OUTER AND 12 INNER chains equidistantly oriented for zero weak pockets - reducing cut throughs and pole bounces
  • STURDY - all-metal construction
  • UNIQUELY ENGINEERED - assembles or disassembles in under 1 minute
  • PDGA APPROVED - built to standard PDGA height and size regulation


The Black Hole Practice Model is the only full-size practice basket we’ve seen for under $150 that provides a full 24 chains hung in two different layers: very similar to what you will find with $500 non-portable, course-quality baskets.

At putting distances, our testing demonstrated no appreciable difference in performance compared other baskets that were almost twice as heavy.  Additionally, during testing the Black Hole was very easy to move from place to place around the yard.

Gift Rule #3: Every Player Needs an Awesome Bag!

For players who like to carry more than four discs when they play, a bag is essential gear.  Many of the older models (that most players still have) offer poor visibility and limited organization options, but the newer bags provide significantly improved functionality.

The four “C’s” in bag selection are:

  • Comfort
  • Capacity
  • Construction
  • Compartmentalization


Recommended Bag: Dynamic Discs Combat Ranger Disc Golf Bag


Dynamic Discs Combat Ranger Disc Golf Backpack | Large Main Compartment That Can Hold 18+ Discs | On-Deck Frisbee Golf Putter Pouch | Padded Back Panel and Straps for Extra Comfort (Heather Charcoal)
  • 18+ DISC MAIN COMPARTMENT- The Dynamic Discs Combat Ranger Disc Golf Bag features a 18+ disc main compartment while also allowing 2 disc golf putters in the signature on-deck side putter pocket.


This super-light backpack is extremely comfortable and holds up to 18 discs, each of which is well displayed and easily accessible due to Upper Park’s smart design scheme.

Despite its light weight, the V5 bag is built to last with durable, abrasion resistant material. Considering disc golf bags are placed on the ground around 50 times per round, the V5’s waterproof base and wear-resistant feet will also add a significant amount of longevity.

Gift Rule #4: Don’t Forget the Shoes!

Even though your disc golf player almost certainly has specialty shoes for every other sport they play, many disc golfers just wear some pair of shoes they already have lying around.

Help them out!

Shoes for disc golf need to provide the following features:

  • Good grip on concrete tee pads AND various outdoor terrain
  • Low ankle coverage to allow flexion when driving
  • Toe coverage for rotation wear-protection during driving

Putting these elements together leads to one category: Trail Shoes

Recommended Disc Golf Shoes: KEEN Voyageur Hiking Shoe


KEEN Men's Voyageur Shoe, Dark Earth/Gargoyle, 11.5 M US
  • UPPER: Water-resistant leather upper repels water and performance mesh increases air flow
  • TRACTION: KEEN ALL-TERRAIN rubber outsole provides high-traction grip in muddy environments and on rocky surfaces with 4mm multi-directional lugs; Non-marking rubber outsoles leave no trace when walking indoors
  • SUPPORT: The torsion stability support shank provides support on uneven surfaces; The injected heel-capture system provides next-level stability
  • FIT & COMFORT: Low-profile upper for comfort and secure fit with padded tongue and collar; The removable, metatomical dual density footbed provides excellent arch support and cradles to the natural contours of the foot
  • CARE TIPS: Gently brush with a soft bristle brush or hand towel to remove dirt; Stains can be treated by lightly rubbing a with a gum eraser
