Jeff MacKeigan (PDGA #86191) has been playing disc golf since 2014 when he discovered E.T. Seton, Toronto’s 3rd disc golf course, while mountain biking. By 2016, Jeff was playing in PDGA tournaments and travelling the world to play as many courses as he could. His passion hit new heights in 2018, when he confirmed and built a new course in the City of Toronto neighbourhood in which he lived, the Beaches. Jeff believed in the power of the disc golf community and self-funded this entire course. This was the beginning of a new direction as Jeff left his corporate job, where he had just won ‘Employee of the Year’, to focus on sharing disc golf with as many people as he could.
He is the co-founder of ChainLink Disc Golf and has a mission to bring disc golf communities to as many places as possible. Jeff's focus is ‘beyond the basket’ to ensure his disc golf courses reflect the unique communities in which they are located. Jeff develops long-term partnerships with all their courses to ensure they are setup for success.
First encountering the Paul McBeth Foundation while volunteering during the Montenegro disc golf build, Jeff was impressed with the passion and the shared mission of supporting disc golf experiences. Jeff looks forward to supporting the Paul McBeth Foundation across multiple disciplines while bringing the PMF focus to Canada.
Jeff is a bilingual EU citizen as well as a former college professor and MBTI® Certified Practitioner. When he’s not playing disc golf, you might find him winter surfing in the Great Lakes, exploring parks, mountain biking with friends or losing Catan board games to Cara Hovius.
