PDGA / World's Biggest Disc Golf Weekend 2014
« on: April 30, 2014, 07:53:09 AM »
The Worlds Biggest Disc Golf Weekend started in 1991, when over 350 players took part in a one-day event at Zilker Park in Austin, Texas. At the time, it was the biggest tournament in disc golf history. The next year, creator John Houck #1688 turned it into a global event dedicated to introducing the sport to tens of thousands of people around the world on the same weekend. At its peak, the event was hosted in almost 200 cities and 16 countries worldwide. Houck continued this tradition for 23 years, and this year marks the 24th and final event for WBDGW as it is known today.
