Welcome to the

Disc Golf Injury Study

Web Site


This project is designed to investigate the frequency and severity of injuries that are experienced in the sport of Disc Golf.


The study has concluded but you may still enter your data if you previously registered.


Some of the preliminary results are:

      ~170 log entries

      ~1500 playing hours

      ~15 injuries

      ~The data indicates a very high rate of injuries and this is likely due to a lack of sufficient exposure reporting. More details to follow.


Thank you all for participating. Please let me know if you have any questions.


1.      Enter a log of how many hours you played disc golf for a given week -FAQ.

2.      Fill out the injury form if you experience a disc golf related injury.


There are currently no studies published on Disc Golf injuries and I would like to document the safety of the sport. As a disc golfer myself, I would like to see the sport grow. I believe the more we know about the sport, the more it can be promoted for everyone to enjoy.


If you have any questions, please contact me at drdoug@sportsdc.net.
