GRIPeq 2023 Disc Golf Holiday Gift Guide: 
For the Beginner Disc Golfer

We’re here to help you find all the holiday disc golf gifts on your list! Check out our recommendations below for all your beginner disc golf friends’ holiday shopping needs.

GRIPeq CS2: Where Simple Meets Durable

If you think back to when you first started playing disc golf, you probably remember having only a few discs. And if you’re a beginner, you may be starting your disc collection now. Regardless of how many discs you begin with, we’re here to help you get out onto the course in comfort and style.

If you are new to disc golf and looking for a comfortable yet lightweight backpack, the GRIPeq CS2 is here for you. Made with high-quality materials, this backpack is designed to provide optimal comfort and durability for players of all levels. With padded shoulder straps, you can easily carry your discs and accessories around the course without feeling weighed down. 

This disc golf bag can accommodate up to 16 discs, so you have plenty of space for your favorites and any new ones you want to try out. Additionally, it features two side pockets perfect for storing extra towels, snacks, or water bottles so you can stay hydrated and refreshed as you play. 

Overall, the GRIPeq CS2 disc golf backpack is a top-of-the-line choice that offers any disc golfer functionality, comfort, and convenience. Begin your disc golf journey on the right foot with a durable bag that will last.

Disc Golf Stocking Stuffers

When planning your holiday shopping, don’t forget to fill their stockings with disc golf goodies! Even beginners can use some of our favorite disc golf stocking stuffer recommendations to improve their game.

First, toss a few GRIPeq stamped Discraft can toppers in their gifts! That’s right, the Discraft can topper mini disc is back in production after a hiatus of three years. You can use it as a spot marker or securely fit it on top of a standard aluminum can to keep insects out and drinks in. They’re currently available in two different GRIPeq foil stamps and measure 2.75 inches in diameter. You can view the available options here:

And you can never have too many minis! Our Flexible Mini Marker is a 3.5″ round PVC disc with two sides that lets you mark your spot on the course in style and comfort. Due to its flexibility, it can be conveniently carried in your pocket, yet it is durable enough to last thousands of rounds. It will also fit perfectly in the mini pocket of any GRIPeq bag. 

Another great small gift idea is disc golf patches! We carry Team GRIPeq Pro as well as other fun GRIPeq-designed patches on our site! These patches can attach to the velcro field of any disc golf bag. 

Our next gift idea is an essential item for any disc golfer. A chalk bag helps maintain a good grip while out on the course, whether sweat, rain, or other course conditions affect the disc or your throwing hand. Whale Sacs are one of the popular options and a preferred choice of many GRIPeq pros such as Paige Pierce, Kyle Klein, Eagle McMahon, Missy Gannon, and Cynthia Riccioti. You can find other chalk bag options at any disc golf retailer. 

And while you’re throwing goodies in their stocking, be sure they have a tick key for their disc golf bag, as you never know when you may come in contact with those creepy bugs while out on the course.
