Czech Disc Golf Association, z.s.(hereinafter referred to as ČADG) is a registered association, established during 2011 with the aim of creating an independent organization, that would associate disc golf players in the Czech Republic, protect their interests, organize the Czech Disc Golf League and promote disc golf to the general public.
ČADG follows the Czech Association of Flying Disc (ČALD), which in the past successfully ensured the functioning of all associated sports. In 2019 ČALD turned into an umbrella organization for individual sports, in particular ultimate frisbee, disc golf and freestyle frisbee. Each of the associated sports is proportionally represented in ČALD according to the number of its members.
In 2019, a significant change in the structure of the ČADG took place. The amendment of the statutes introduced the membership of clubs in the ČADG, which thus became the main coordinators in the direction of the association. List of clubs that are members of ČADG.

ČADG has two kinds of members, namely natural person and a legal person = clubs.
