Disc Golf Basket Quick FAQ's

  • What is a Disc Golf Basket or Target?
  • Different Types of Baskets
  • Why DGA Disc Golf Baskets
  • Basket History
  • How do I Order?

DGA invented the first disc golf basket over 40 years ago in 1975 as one of the first steps the company took to formalize the sport and game of disc golf. The term disc golf basket, or "Basket" is one of the most common informal names for what originally was known as a Disc Pole Hole. The Disc Pole Hole is also referred to as a cage, pin, hole, target, disc catcher, goal, chains, bucket, and pole.

A disc golf basket is made up of a chain holder attached to the top of a pole. The pole is often cemented directly into the ground. The chain holder has chains attached to it that surrounds the pole and hangs down towards a basket. The basket is attached about halfway down the pole below the chain. A disc golf course is generally made up of at least 9 disc golf baskets, however, most courses are built with 18 disc golf baskets. (Space permitting, there are also course designs up to 21, 24, and 27 holes.) Disc golf baskets must conform to specific dimensions if they are to be used in PDGA sanctioned tournament play.

Disc golf baskets are the main and most important components of a disc golf course. Disc golf baskets serve the same function as golf holes do in the sport of traditional golf. When a thrown flying disc hits the chains and drops into the basket, the hole is complete. A player's score is added up by counting the number of throws it takes for the disc to come to rest in the basket. 

DGA currently manufactures 7 disc golf basket models conforming to different PDGA specification for both tournament play as well as recreational use.

There are two categories of DGA baskets, Permanent and Practice/Portable. Permanent disc golf baskets are heavy-duty and are designed for outdoor park and recreation settings. In these settings disc golf baskets get constant play (banging of the chains) and abuse. Permanent disc golf baskets have anywhere from 18 to 40 strands of chain and are durable enough to withstand sun, wind, rain, and snow. Each disc golf target is hot-dipped galvanized from head to toe (a DGA standard). DGA disc golf baskets can be powder coated in different colors if desired.

Each permanent DGA Disc Golf Basket can be configured in one of three ways:

  1. Direct Cement (No Frills Mounting Option)
  2. Anchor & Collar (Standard Mounting Option)
    locked into anchors that are cemented into the ground. This allows for a permanent but movable installation.
  3. Portable Base (Portable Mounting Option)

DGA portable and practice disc golf baskets (Mach Lite and  Mach Shift specifically) are lighter weight and lighter duty than DGA permanent disc golf baskets. DGA practice disc golf baskets are designed to be easily portable. These baskets have 16 strands of chain to reduce weight and increase ease of mobility. DGA practice baskets are not designed to be left outdoors but to be properly stored when not in use. The Mach Lite can fold in on itself like an umbrella and comes with a shoulder bag for easy storage and transport. The Mach Shift basket is an all metal basket that snaps together with spring-loaded buttons. 

DGA is committed to quality and has specialized in manufacturing Disc Pole Holes for over 40 years. You don’t want your investment to rust or weather quickly and you want a company that will stand behind their products.

DGA uses industrial strength manufacturing and hot-dipped galvanizing methods which we have refined over the decades. To ensure ultimate corrosion protection and visibility, DGA color powder coated disc golf baskets are hot-dipped galvanized first to make sure they have long-lasting weather protection.

DGA produces the highest quality and longest lasting disc golf equipment that offers the greatest value. Each DGA permanent style Mach Series disc golf basket is hand inspected for quality and most have a 25 Year Limited Warranty to make sure your investment stands the test of time.

Today more people know what disc golf baskets are when they see them in the park. In 1975 when DGA first unveiled the first Disc Pole Hole to the Frisbee® community, it was a revolutionary breakthrough.

Ed Headrick started DGA with his son Ken to work on the first disc golf basket. When they began, people were throwing Frisbees at light poles, trash cans, signs, and even trees. DGA’s first Disc Pole Hole consisted of 10 chains hanging in a parabolic shape over an upward opening basket (US Patent 4,039,189, issued 1975). Ed had tried many prototypes before having the idea of hanging chains over a basket. The archives of DGA are full of pictures of fishing net contraptions, welded boxes of rings on poles and other sketches hatched out of Headrick’s imagination.

Since DGA’s founding, there have been many attempts to improve upon the Disc Pole Hole’s basic design. However, just as the basic design of the bicycle has lasted the test of time, the basic design of the first Disc Pole Hole from 1975 is still the foundation of every basket today.

Over the years DGA has come out with many inventions and patents improving upon the original design. These inventions include multiple rows of chain (inner chains), sliding attachment points for the chain (sliding links), the Trapper Basket, and most recently the V reflex chain configuration found on the Mach Lite and Mach X.
