Mike Cozzens, PDGA #3168, has been playing disc golf since 1974. He is the founder of the NorCal series, and former tournament director of the Caldecott Open in Moraga and Berkeley, CA. In 1993, he and his wife moved to Northern Wisconsin and together they created the world's first disc golf resort, Sandy Point Resort and Disc Golf Ranch. Steady Ed Headrick named Sandy Point a "Disc Golf Sanctuary" in 1995. Sandy Point is known far and wide as "Disc Golf Heaven." He is an original member of the Recreational Disc Golf Association, #003, founded by Ed Headrick, Joe Weinshel, Mike and Michele Cozzens at Sandy Point Resort in 1995.

Mike helped to revitalize the modern Wisconsin State Series and has been the host/TD of the State Finals. He also introduced the "coveted black disc trophy" for tournament winners. Mike has been the tournament director of the annual Northwoods Open since 1994, and also the Sandy Point Team Invitational, and he is captain of the "Ranch Team." In the resort off-season, Mike maintains a retail operation of disc golf equipment, selling discs and bags, and advising players, collectors and enthusiasts from around the world. In 2017, Innova Discs welcomed him to Team Innova as an official ambassador.

Mike and his wife, Michele Cozzens, own and operate Sandy Point Resort and Disc Golf Ranch in Lac du Flambeau, which is the home of the Wisconsin Disc Golf Hall of Fame. He is also a member of the Wisconsin Disc Golf Hall of Fame.
