Qualifying educational institutions can apply to the Matching Baskets Program to reduce the cost of installation of a new disc golf course. Through the DGF program, 9 baskets are donated to a limited number of colleges or universities, if the approved institutions purchase 9 baskets at retail price, pay for shipping of all 18 baskets, and agree to install and maintain the course on their property.

Only colleges or universities are eligible.
Golf course must be open to the public.
Course must be on college property and be approved for this use by the college.
If grant is awarded, the college must install the course within one year.
A qualified designer must be involved. The DGF is happy to help locate a designer to provide assistance.
A financial plan must be presented.
Tee pads, signs, message board, and trash cans are recommended but the responsibility of the college.
Through contributions by Discraft, the Disc Golf Association and Innova-Champion, the DGF offers three different disc golf baskets: the Chain Star, the Mach V, or the DISCatcher. The choice of baskets is at the discretion of the college, but only one set of baskets will be offered a year by each of these manufacturers.
