disc golf books

Our founder Jack has published two top-selling books on disc golf.

Three Paths to Better Disc Golf details three distinct avenues for disc golf improvement: philosophical, strategic, and tactical. The Disc Golf Revolution closely examines all aspects of the growing sport, including its accessibility and broad appeal, to show why disc golf is golf, optimized for the 21st century.

Get signed, custom-inscribed copies of both books here, or pick them up on Amazon.

Disc Golf Lessons

YouTube videos and group clinics with top pros can be helpful, sometimes, but they don’t come close to personalized instruction from a dedicated teaching professional.

We provide private lessons, remote coaching if you can’t be here in person, and form analysis videos– all after collecting info on your specific disc golf goals.

Contact us today to book your first session or learn more. And check out what our clients say about us:

“I have been playing consistently for eight months but struggling to get better. I took a two hour lesson with Jack today and drove away knowing that I had begun my journey to a better game and becoming more enthralled with the sport. Jack listened to and acknowledge my desired outcome for the lesson. Great communication before, through and after the lesson. If you want to take your game to the next level, look here!”

Philip B, Moraga, CA


“We now LOVE disc golf, thanks to our School of Disc Golf lesson! The whole family had a blast, ages 3-57! We plan to get out and try out our new skills tomorrow! What a fun, fantastic teacher and coach Jack is! I highly recommend him!”

Wendy Rae J, Boulder Creek, CA


“I took a two hour lesson with Jack this past weekend and it was a very worthwhile investment. He is very good at coaching you step by step and conveying proper technique in a number of ways that will make sense to you. His ability to film your shot and show you instant corrections in real time was very helpful. If you want to learn this sport or just need a new tool for the course you play, Jack is the man to go to!”

Jeff N, Sacramento, CA

While researching my book, Three Paths to Better Disc Golf, I learned that Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi is the person credited … Continue reading A Tribute to MC Flow, and How to Play Better by Balancing Challenge and Skill
