Disk Golf Visionary Smells Something New in the Air

PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) Hall of Famer Tomas Ekström, considered one of the world’s great disc golf players and one of the driving forces behind disc golf discs and course equipment manufacturer Latitude 64°, has started a new trend in the sport by launching a line of scented golf discs using additives from Addmaster’s Scentmaster range.

Hearing of Addmaster’s Scentmaster range of additives, Tomas decided to manufacture and distribute a limited edition of scented golf discs across Europe and the USA.

Scentmaster is an additive from Addmaster (UK) Ltd that is built into products during manufacture to provide a long lasting fragrance. Nearly any fragrance imaginable can be created.

Tomas, winner of numerous European titles and back-to-back PDGA World Doubles disc golf titles in the 90’s, started to develop and produce golf disc products in 2005. He partnered with Svante Eriksson, David Berglund and Johan Åström, also experienced players and devoted enthusiasts, to create the line of products.

Their company, Latitude 64°, now produce a wide variety of equipment they believe elevate the sport to new heights in terms of quality and class and suit all types of players, from the fledgling newbie to the avid professional.

Disc Golf is a game in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target.

The sport was formalised in the 1970’s, and shares the same objective as traditional golf, completing each hole in the fewest number of throws.

Disc Golf shares the same joys and frustrations of traditional golf, whether it’s sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway.

There are also several advantages – Disc Golf rarely requires a greens fee, you won’t need to rent a cart and you never get stuck with a bad tee time.

Disc Golf is designed to be enjoyed by people of all ages, male and female, and is played in about 40 countries around the world.

Scentmaster is a range of highly concentrated fragrance masterbatches specially manufactured to maintain their scent profile. Scentmaster additives are designed to give a long lasting scent in the final product.

*Please note that Addmaster was acquired by the Polygiene Group AB in January 2021, so all news articles prior to that date will still be branded as Addmaster.
