“ With every course layout, taking the best geographical features of the park along with the mix of trees and other types of shrubs and bushes to create the most challenging opportunity while keeping in mind the other parks uses and any potential liabilities that may occur from any errant shots. I pride myself with the ability to see a holes layout without any major degradation to the existing plant life and mature growth. My moto is to ‘Walk softly and carry a small disc’ to see the lines backwards and forwards and always create an iconic hole to remember!”

Colin Fitchett - London, ON

Sales & Teams Manager

Colin has been involved in disc golf for since 2014.  Having choose disc golf to help him manage - Caregiver burnout - it was the perfect match.  “The freedom and flexibility disc golf offers in unmatched.  At that time I had only 3 discs and used a purple paisley cloth shopping bag and that was more than enough the sport”.  The next thing I knew I was having Custom discs designed, travelling to amazing disc golf events like the Glass Blown Open, Throw Down the Mountain, TIML, USDGC and meeting disc golfers from all over the world.


I have been with Prodigy Disc since January 2019 as Sales Manager and as Prodigy Disc Canada Team Manager.  In this short time we have been able to build the Prodigy brand across Canada from Nanaimo to Corner Brook, and have brought disc golf to new places and new faces along the way.
 
I am also an accomplished tournament organizer having run Union for 4 years.  The event has been an A-Tier, B-Tier, and C-Tier.  The first Union sponsored by Sun Life Financial and held at the St. Thomas Golf and Country Club was an unparalleled success and one of my most proud disc golf accomplishments.
