Disc Golf Live

Disc Golf Live is a magazine-style program covering all aspects of the popular sport of "frisbee" or disc golf.

Topics include tournament coverage, player profiles, course tours, throwing techniques, even the occasional music video. DGL mixes in-house produced segments with pieces submitted by disc golfers across the country, bringing the full scope of this lifetime sport to viewers.

As a low-cost and environmentally friendly alternative to its more famous cousin, disc golf is popular with the younger crowd as well as older folks looking for a great way to enjoy some leisure time outdoors.

Disc Golf Live is one of the unique programs operating in the PEG sphere. To start, disc golf is a great spin on a traditional game, with a broad player base across the country, a great opportunity to focus on a healthy, green alternative, certain to provoke a few folks to get out and get some exercise. DGL is a unique format in that we produce our own material and include viewer-submitted segments as well.
