About this Project:

Madrid Project Photo

Located on a beautiful piece of formerly under-utilized land at Complutense University, Spain’s largest public university, this project brought the first 18-hole disc golf course to Madrid! The driving force behind the project's approval was Madrid International Disc Golf (MIDG), a club that has been promoting disc golf in the capital city for seven years.

We were able to install an 18-hole course complete with teesigns, teepads, and a practice basket on the Complutense University campus. The course features a beginner-friendly layout that not only targets university students, but also the rest of Madrid's 6.7 million residents. MIDG was working to establish a player base long before the project was completed, by hosting events with portable targets around the city. This pioneering work allowed for an easy avenue to success for PMF’s work in Spain.

Latitude 64 was the primary sponsor for Project 3.1, which marked the Swedish company's first time working with the Paul McBeth Foundation. Additionally, PDGA Europe was instrumental in making the Madrid course a reality.

Why Madrid?

One of our core focus areas is major cities around the world, which made Madrid an ideal location. Having previously claimed zero permanent courses within city limits and a population of 6.7 million, disc golf growth has incredible potential in the city and beyond.

There is no questioning MIDG’s dedication to growing the sport in the city, and this made it an even easier decision to choose Madrid for this project. This course is achieving PMF's goals of giving access to a wide variety of people and will help spur more disc golf activity in the country as a whole, with tournaments and open play already happening!
