College Matching Baskets Program
The Disc Golf Foundation facilitates the advancement of disc golf.
Particularly through new course development. One program the DGF
offers for this is the College Matching Baskets Program.
Through this program, the DGF agrees to donate 9 baskets to a college
or university, if the approved institution purchases 9 baskets at
retail price (plus shipping for all 18 baskets) and agrees to install
and maintain the course on their property.
1. Only colleges or universities are eligible for this program.
2. Golf course must be open to the public.
3. Land for course must be on college property and must have been
approved for this use by the college.
4. If grant is awarded, the college must install the course within
5. A qualified designer must be involved. The DGF is happy to help
locate a local designer to provide assistance.
6. A financial plan must be presented.
7 . Tee pads, signs, message board, and trash cans are recommended.
The DGF has made arrangements to offer three different disc golf
baskets: the Mach V by DGA, the DISCatcher by Innova-Champion,
or the Chain Star by Discraft Inc. The choice of the baskets
to be used is at the discretion of the college. Be aware though
that only one set of baskets will be offered a year by each of these
manufacturers through the College Matching Baskets Program. Thus
a first choice may not always be available.
Also note that the DGF will provide the 9 baskets only. All other
baskets, tee signs, tee pads, design, installation, maintenance
and shipping costs are the responsibility of the college.

When the proposal has been completed and sent to the DGF, the
Board of Directors will discuss and make a decision. A time period
of up to 6 months may occur before a decision is made, as it will
be addressed and voted on at a semi-annual Board Meeting.
