Snap Discs

Snap specializes in custom, niche, and recreational discs from proprietary Snap models to outsourced favourites. In its various forms, Snap has been a part of the disc golf industry for 20 years. We have witnessed its rapid evolution and are here to share what we’ve learned along the way. Let Snap be your guide to the sport of the future!

Meet Matt MacDonald

Matt MacDonald (PDGA #15540) is the sole proprietor of Snap Discs. Matt had a passion for playing sports from first exposure, but his immersion into frisbee around ‘93 was the beginning of a continuous ascent. The elemental nature of disc flight and boundless opportunities for human interaction are like nothing else. Matt’s roots are in freestyle, thanks to an early discovery of Frisbee by the Masters (Tips, 1977), that quickly branched into all aspects of competitive frisbee including field events and Guts, and eventually Ultimate during university. Today Matt is primarily a disc golfer, but still considers himself an “overaller” and is working toward a local Double Disc Court (DDC) league.
