About this blog…
1987 Professional Disc Golf Association World Champion Gregg Hosfeld has held the record for the most amount of disc golf courses played for around a dozen years. On July 4th, 2008 Hosfeld embarked upon the “one grand disc golf tour” in hopes of playing 175 more disc golf courses, thus becoming the first person to play 1,000 disc golf courses.
With an average growth of 15-18% each year for the last 18 years, disc golf is one of the fastest growing games in the world! As little as 8 years ago, there weren’t even 1,000 courses in the ground. Now, in mid 2008, there are over 2,560!

Now sponsored by Innova-Champion, Hosfeld has over 40 State, National and World titles in Flying disc tournaments, was inducted into the Disc Golf Hall of Fame in 1998 and wrote for Disc Golf World magazine for 20 years, eventually becoming Senior Correspondent.
Over the years Hosfeld, (aka The Miniac) has worked as a comic, juggler and slack rope/wire walker. He has been a key member in 3 national “Frisbee” tours in the US and one in Japan.
He is an experienced member of the Disc Golf Course Design Group and offers course design through the Florida Disc Golf Design Group.
Obviously playing 175 more courses requires quite a bit of travel. With the obscene fuel prices it is necessary to raise funds wherever possible. I would like to encourage you to consider purchasing one or more fund-raiser discs to support the one grand disc golf tour (1kdgt). With advance notice, I am also available for comedy juggling shows.
I make attempts to post a blog each night, though internet access is often limited. When possible they contain some interesting or odd photos from the road. I’ll try to make it as amusing as time allows.
I hope you’ll support my efforts. It’s a hard road at times, though there’s a lot of great golf and cool people out there. Keep me going and I’ll keep you posted!
And remember, if you have a dream, get out there and CHASE IT!!
