The first time you buy golf discs, you may be tempted to pick your favorite color. After playing a few rounds on courses with thick vegetation, your disc color preferences just might change. When it comes to playing satisfaction, brightly colored discs are best.
We asked our Facebook fans what color discs they’d choose, if they could only choose one color. Here is a summary of the responses:

Nearly 68% of the responders specifically included terms like “bright, day glow, neon, or hot” in their color description.

More specifically, 15% prefer “neon or hot pink” 11% said “pink”, and 2% specified “bubble gum” pink. According to Joe White, “real men throw pink.”
Orange was the next most common color selected. 13% of respondents prefer bright orange discs that stick out in any disc golf terrain. Blue, Green, and Yellow round up the remaining popular colors; each with 12% of the total votes. Once again, it was the “bright” variations of these colors that were specified. Aqua, teel, baby, and metallic blue were specified among the different blue variations. From those that selected yellow, 75% specified either bright, day glow, or chartreuse. Similar responses resulted from those who selected green.
Other colors selected that weren’t as popular include red, purple, white, black, and tye dyed. While there are some disc golfers that prefer these color for their discs, they are in the minority. In the end, when it comes to disc golf discs, bright colors win out.
