Default St. Paul, MN -- Fairway Flyerz is For Sale [Twin Cities, MN Disc Golf Retailer]

St. Paul, MN -- Fairway Flyerz is For Sale

A new online-only disc golf retailer seems to be created every few months. In my experience, dedicated brick-and-mortar disc golf equipment retailers appear to be few and far in-between. Back in my day, this place was the closest dedicated retailer within a 250-mile radius from my hometown.

For me, Fairway Flyerz in Little Canada (St. Paul, MN) was the first equipment retailer I visited that had (nearly) all manufacturers, all molds, all weights, portable baskets, etc. When I first walked throught the doors of this establishment, I was like a kid in a candy store. Then when I went to Gotta Go Gotta Throw, I had to file for bankruptcy (buudum-cha).

Fast forward like ten years: Through my frequent visits to Fairway Flyerz, I had a half dozen conversations with owner guy (Mike). Learned a little about the game, listened to stories about owner guy's wall hangers, found about what's happening in the MSP disc golf scene.

Hopefully this business sale is just a 'changing of the guard.'
