With "Disc Golf," the Guardians of Recreation have created what is probably the best short length promotional disc golf video that I have seen. The video has a very high production quality and features a large variety of terrains and throws that should give any new person a good idea of what to expect from a disc golf experience. While humorous at times, the video does a terrific job of representing the sport. The "Disc Golf" video would make an ideal promotional tool both for attracting sponsorship to events and distributing to Park & Rec boards if you are trying to get a course installed in your area.

"The Perfect Game" is a short video displaying a mock match between two players. Filled with very scenic views and a very high production value, the video features the players competing on fictitious holes set somewhere in the desert. The competition is basically a throw-in contest on shots in the 40-120' range and pretty much throwing straight at the basket. While entertaining to watch (I can only imagine how many takes this took), it runs the risk of making disc golf look too easy and courses look too short if this is a person's first time exposed to the sport. It does make for an interesting way to pass the time, but I would probably hesitate coupling it with the "Disc Golf" video if using it to try and establish legitimacy to a possible sponsor or Park & Rec board.
