The Ultimate Disc Golf Store is Proudly Canadian: The first Canadian disc sports store east of the Rockies.
Rob Wormald and the Ultimate Disc Golf Store
In the early years of Ultimate and Disc Golf in Canada, scrounging for plastic was part of the game. Without the internet or any dedicated stores, die-hards often took it upon themselves to sell discs out of their cars.
Sometime in the late 1990s, Rob Wormald shared his vision for a disc sports store with me. I went something like this:
"If it's easy to find discs, more people will play," he said. "But if I do it, it will be more than just a store. We'll put on tournaments, we'll design courses, and we'll organize skills clinics. And the store," he said, "the store will be a meeting place where people can hang out and try discs before they buy them."
I told him it all sounded pretty grandiose. He told me it would
We were both right.
Here's just some of what Rob's done since that conversation.
