Infinite Discs is an American disc golf equipment retail company based in Logan, Utah. [3] The company also maintains a disc golf scorekeeping app, a course directory, a round tracking website, and a line of discs.

History

The company was founded by amateur disc golfer Alan Barker on October 15, 2012 in Logan, Utah. [4] [5] Barker was initially making real estate websites, until one of his employees introduced him to disc golf. [6] They later created Disc Golf Reviewer, a review blog with Amazon and eBay affiliate links. To grow beyond affiliate marketing, Barker looked into ways to better monetize his blog. He considered striking a partnership with Altitude Disc Golf, a local Utah disc golf retailer, but the company was going out of business. He offered to buy it out, but eventually launched Infinite Discs. [7]

Company overview

Infinite Discs is one of the largest disc golf retailers in the United States, [8] with three brick-and-mortar locations (in Logan, Utah, in Pocatello, Idaho, and in St. George, Utah) and an online store with 50,000 discs in stock. [9]

Infinite Tournaments

Infinite Tournaments is an online platform for running tournaments, raising funds, and providing player ratings. [10] The platform is notably used by the Next Gen Tour. [11]

Infinite Discs Line

In early 2018, Infinite Discs released a line of disc golf discs manufactured by Innova Champion Discs in the United States. The molds follow an Ancient Egyptian-themed naming pattern. Later in 2020 Infinite Discs Released a follow-up line of disc molds following a naming pattern of Pre-Columbian era civilizations of Central and South America. Infinite discs are sold exclusively by Infinite Discs in both sets and individually. [6] In 2020, Infinite Discs was the 6th most popular brand of discs among Utahn players, after Innova, Discraft, and trilogy brands (Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64°, and Westside). [12]

State of Disc Golf Survey

Since at least 2014, Infinite Discs has been publishing the State of Disc Golf Survey, a yearly account of the state of the disc golf industry. [14] [15] Data collected from the survey plays an important role in assessing the growth of the sport in terms of market trends and consumer habits. [16]
