This web site is the personal blog for Dan Laitsch, disc golf enthusiast and PDGA number 16032. I’ve been playing disc golf casually since 1996 and competitively since 2005. My home course is Mundy Park, in Coquitlam BC. Since 2005, I’ve played on multiple Jim Brown Cup teams (including six championship teams) and BC’s championship team in the 2013 Rocky Mountain Challenge. In 2017 and 2019 I had the great honour to represent the USA in the World Team Disc Golf Championships. From 2014-2018 I was sponsored by the Disc Cellar and I’m very excited to be joining RPM Discs Ambassador’s Team for 2020.
I generally compete in Open, Open Masters, or Open Grandmasters divisions in individual events. While I’ve designed many temporary courses for events I’ve helped run, I was lucky enough to lead the team that designed the world class Grouse Mountain course and more recently the recreationally focused Walden Park Disc Golf Course in Chilliwack, BC
Between 2007 and 2016 I was actively involved in the governance of disc sports in BC, serving in a variety of positions on the old Disc Golf Branch of the British Columbia Disc Sports Society, as well as the BCDSS main board. In 2018/19 I returned to the Board to replace an officer who stepped down from their term early.
This Blog is my own personal entertainment and effort to share my disc golfing thoughts and experiences with any interested readers.
In my spare time, I enjoy being a faculty member in the Faculty of Education at Simon Fraser University and father to two wonderful daughters.
Thanks for visiting!
