Default DGC Growth Map

The PDGA just dropped this new map animation video-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RC4tk9c7RL4

It's a decent little video. And I know theres other geography junkies who will think it's as cool as I did. It's pretty crazy that it only took one year after the first course for dg to become nationally wide spread.

That is pretty cool. I enjoy how the red dots get greater and greater. It makes it feel like it's a disease that is spreading rapidly

I saw that on youtube yesterday, I kind of have this thing for searching for DG videos. I thought it was pretty cool and did some awesome representation of the growth of disc golf.

If you like that map, then make sure your check out the maps on this site. Basically some of the most detailed information on course density, placement, and growth.

That's a neat map. Its not entirely accurate though as it is apparently not showing courses that have been removed. The first course here in Kansas was around the football field in the small town of Lindsborg, circa 1976 or so. Ed Headrick himself supposedly had a hand in its creation. The first dot in Kansas appears around the Topeka area 1979-ish or so. I would assume that's Crestview Park.

If there's something that astounds me about that map, its how late Texas got in the game and yet has become the state with the most courses. Very few dots there until the early 90's.
