Adam Harris

Biography

Adam has played disc since September of 1990; he has played over 340 courses in 31 States and two Canadian provinces.  He grew up on a golf course and has been playing golf since age 4.  Seeing the golf course he grew up on be redesigned during his childhood developed and watching that first hand, developed an early passion for course design that has grown significantly once he began to play disc golf. In 2007 Adam began apprentice designing at Iron Hill in Newark, DE while that course was beginning to be installed.  The passion for disc golf design took off as that course during that time at Iron Hill as Adam observed how even slight changes in fairway shapes and distances to doglegs made significant impacts on a given hole, and readily translated from golf to disc golf.
Adam joined the “Disc Golf Course Designers” (DGDC) as an ‘Apprentice Designer’ in 2012 and achieved the level of ‘Course Designer’ in late 2012. He has attended every Disc Golf Course Designer conference ever held in the United States, making connections with other course designers, and gaining experience along the way (four design conferences in three States from 2014-2016). In April of 2015 Adam was recognized as only the 21st “Senior Course Designer” in the world by the “Disc Golf Course Designers” (DGDC).
In 2011 Adam was a founding member of a new disc golf club in South Jersey, and has served as the clubs President from 2011 to the present.  He also has been a tournament director for over 80 events in that time, including several A tiers, and being on the staff of a couple of NTs and the USWDGC in 2019.
Adam is also sponsored by Innova, as an Ambassador for the game since 2018.
Education:  Bachelors Degree, Marketing and minor in International Bussiness
Goals: I have several goals in disc golf course design, first and foremost is to develop the best possible overall course for each property I am fortunate enough to work on.  Second, continuing to develop my skills and ability over time, as I believe that the game is constantly evolving, and course desgin needs to stay ahead of the evolution curve to host events as the game moves forward.
