In 1991 four individuals formed Madison Area Disc Club for the purpose of installing Madison's first disc golf course (Elver Park): Duster "Don" Hoffman, Dan Madden, Pete Boersma and Paul Boersma.
By 1992 MADC had developed a course design and raised funds (along with the help of People for Parks with matching contributions) to purchase baskets and tee signs. The City of Madison Parks Department accepted the design and MADC began gathering volunteers.
Elver Park Disc Golf Course was installed and opened in September 1992.
In 1994, the Madison Ultimate Frisbee Association donated $9000 to install a course on Madison's east side, and People for Parks matched. During the installation of Hiestand Park, the Madison Area Disc Club was incorporated as a non-stock, not-for-profit corporation.
In 2013, the club changed its name to Mad City Disc Golf. To this day, we serve as a gateway between our members, the Madison Area community, and outreach as it relates to disc sports.
