Gander Disc Golf was born out of a love for the sport of disc golf. We wanted to provide everyone from beginner to pro smooth access to disc golf products and advice. We also wanted to support disc golf communities and promote Canadian talent and the people who make disc golf amazing.
Gander was started by:
Ryan - wholesale manager
Cindy - accounting and inventory manager
Julie - shipping and design
Calvin - marketing, website, and customer relations.
We have been joined by amazing Calgary partners Kyle and Amber, and they have opened our second location in beautiful Calgary! Kyle and Amber are talented fixtures in the Calgary disc golf scene and share our philosophies around supporting communities and growing disc golf.
Why are we called Gander? At Rundle Park Disc Golf Course, our home course in Edmonton's scenic river valley, we often share the sloped greens and rolling fairways with our winged friends known as Canadian Geese, the male variety being a gander. We chose our name in an effort to pay homage to our Northern roots and the place where we learned to love this sport.
Gander started as an online store in September 2020. Thanks to the exceptional support we received, we were able to open a storefront and warehouse in September 2021. We are so grateful for the disc golf community and can't wait to continue supporting disc golf communities and people across Canada.
