Essential Discs was founded to spread the good news of Disc Golf after the sport helped Founder Larry Leonardi to rehab from a major back injury that put him into a wheel chair. When multiple Pain Clinics, Rehabilitation clinics couldn't help and the neurosurgeons wanted to operate.



A Few of Larry's Friends took him to Oshtemo Park in the Kalamazoo area. Although painful the workout allowed his back to recover flexibility and strength. After three months Larry's Pain was down to a pain level of 5 and after about a year of continuous disc golfing the pain although always there is now at a measly 1-3 on a daily basis. It was this experience that brought about our company.
