Disc Golf and 512 Hemp: A Story

Disc Golf and 512 Hemp: A Story

Sep 12, 2023Jordan Reddin

In the past, I only gave disc golf a little thought. It was one of those things that faintly hovered in the back of my mind, associated with leisurely afternoons in the park. But all that changed when I stumbled upon an extraordinary opportunity that would change the trajectory of 512 Hemp as a business.

One day, an employee approached us with the idea of sponsoring them as a player in local PDGA tournaments. As an avid supporter of community sports, the concept of sponsorship fascinated me. It was as if the universe had conspired to bring together my love for community engagement, the outdoors, and a fun new sport.

With excitement propelling us, we delved deeper into the world of disc golf. I discovered that it was an exhilarating and growing sport and a passionate and tight-knit community. My discoveries led me to realize that this could be an ideal opportunity to support an athlete and positively affect the local sports scene.

After conducting extensive research, I reached out to local disc gold event coordinators, expressing my interest in sponsoring them. To my surprise, they replied almost immediately. They were equally excited to collaborate with someone passionate about community outreach and an active lifestyle.

As our partnership with our sponsored player proved mutually beneficial, we brainstormed more ways to get involved in the local disc golf community. Then, we came up with the idea of setting up a booth at local disc golf tournaments. It is the perfect platform to showcase our commitment to the sport and connect with fellow disc golf enthusiasts. Additionally, we offer products that are ideal for enhancing focus during the game and recovering afterward.

We attended our first tournament armed with various support materials - from branded merchandise to refreshments for the players. There was an overwhelmingly positive response from the disc golf community. People seemed genuinely appreciative of our support and efforts to engage with the community.

Over the next few months, we continued attending and supporting local disc golf tournaments, refining our approach based on valuable feedback from the players. Our relationship with the disc golf community grew more robust with each event, and we even built a network of supportive individuals who shared our passion.

Aside from the business aspect, building connections has been one of the best parts of our involvement with disc golf. We formed friendships with talented players, event organizers, and other sponsors. They became more than just acquaintances; they became our disc golf family.

As time passes, we aim to extend our support beyond just tournaments. We aim to organize community events, workshops, and clinics to promote the sport further and provide resources for players of all skill levels. The growth of a vibrant and inclusive disc golf community is incredibly fulfilling and rewarding.

Looking back on this incredible journey that began with a simple sponsorship, we are grateful. Disc golf not only introduced me to a world I never imagined but also allowed me to intertwine my love for my community with my passion for outdoor sports. So, if there's one thing I've learned from this experience, it's that sometimes the most unexpected opportunities can lead to the most remarkable adventures.
