The Getting the EDGE curriculum is currently being used in all fifty states and several countries around the World to teach the game of disc golf. The EDGE curriculum is endorsed by the Professional Disc Golf Association and at 232 pages features 9 full chapters that cover everything from the Basics of the Game, Driving, Approach, and Putting Lesson Plans.

Instructors are sure to appreciate the host of other Frisbee/disc games, puzzles, and valuable resources which offer you a complete program that can be used over and over again.
