Flying Eagle Disc Society


About

Founded in 2012, The Flying Eagle Disc society is Eagle County, Colorado’s disc golf resource.

Our club seeks to further the game of disc golf locally through community involvement, friendly competition and fellowship.

One of our primary goals is to improve and add to the current disc golf infrastructure through course maintenance, fundraising, and partnership with local municipalities. In doing so, we hope to also enrich the broader community.

We are always looking for volunteers willing to assist with local events, leagues, work-days and outreach opportunities.

If you are willing to sponsor our club or know someone who might, please contact us.
