Abstract

This paper examines the diffusion of disc golf across the continental U.S., beginning with its formal inception in 1975 through 2010. The results demonstrate that several disc golf regions have developed, including the upper Midwest, the mid-Atlantic I-95 corridor, and the Pacific Coast. Population has been an important determinant of diffusion patterns, with contagious diffusion evident at the local level. Disc golf facilities can be found in demographically diverse communities, however the overwhelming majority of disc golfers are white, creating an unintentional cultural barrier
