Houston Flying Disc Society
The Houston Flying Disc Society was formed in 1991 to promote disc sports throughout the Greater Houston region. HFDS began working with the Houston Parks and Recreation and Harris County parks departments to install permanent disc golf courses across the city.
HFDS Hosts 2016 Ice Bowl
HFDS hosted its 24th Annual Ice Bowl at the White Oak West course this Saturday. All proceeds for the Ice Bowl are donated to the Houston Food Bank. With a turnout of 80 players, HFDS raised $2,073.10 for the Food Bank!
Thank you to everyone who showed up and made this event such a success! Special thanks to Conrad Joe for organizing the event, plus Stephanie Curtis, Bart Smith, Mark Scheel, Jeremy Richards, Jeff Moore, and John Mead for volunteering.
White Oak / Inwood - West Course Installed
Installation of baskets at White Oak West has begun. Currently 18 baskets (holes 1-8 and 18-27) have been installed of the planned total of 27. Check out the course map of these 18 holes below. We'll update you as soon as the course is completed!
This West course joins the already-installed North course at the Inwood complex. For more on the North course, check out DGCourseReview. There are also plans for a 2016 expansion to a third course--White Oak East!
White Oak / Inwood - Sleeves Installed
We had a great crew of HFDS members, friends and family of HFDS members, and local Inwood residents come out to the Inwood South Workday. Thanks to everyone who helped! Special thanks to disc golf superhero Alex Hughes, who brought his auger down from The Woodlands AGAIN!
The baskets will be put in shortly, and the updated map will be posted as soon as it's finished.
Residents who saw us working were all really excited about the course going in, including locals who haven't played in years and a family who's disc-golfing relatives are visiting from Austin soon and can't wait to play!
There's much more to do, so we will keep everyone posted on future work days!
White Oak / Inwood - Course Development
HFDS is working with the City of Houston to develop a disc golf complex around the former Inwood Forest Country Club golf course.
Plans for the complex include three 21-hole disc golf courses - North, South, and East. Check out the complex map for more on the proposed designs.
The North course has been fully installed and it's ready for play! HFDS has purchased all baskets for the South course and will install them on Saturday, November 14. The final East course is in the works - HFDS is currently raising funds to purchase baskets. You can help by donating to the campaign, playing an event, or becoming an HFDS member.
Discraft Ace Race - MacGregor Park Fundraiser
HFDS supported the Discraft Ace Race on November 1st.
With an excellent turnout of 22 people, it was a successful fundraiser for Mac Gregor Park course improvements. Through the $5 per person admission and the sale of $2 mulligans we were able to raise $230 to pay for concrete and sleeves for new baskets at Mac G!
A big thank you to Omar Lozano, Primo Disc Golf, and Jeremy Richards for making this a success!
Jim Mozola Memorial Park - Course Reopening
HFDS is proud to announce the long-awaited return of the Jim Mozola memorial Disc Golf Course on Buffalo Bayou. As part of the Buffalo Bayou Beautification Project (BBBP), the BBBP is very excited to include disc golf as a part of their extensive beautification project. In partnership, HFDS will be outfitting the course with a full set of 18 baskets plus one practice basket! The new baskets will be installed in the coming months.
Check out the new course design!
THANK YOU to all HFDS members for the years of support: YOUR dues and league fees made this possible.
Also, a big thank you to course designer and civic ninja Derek Lang for chopping through that red tape behind the scenes and making this happen!!!
