Project: Medellin, Colombia

Project Partner: Ledgestone Insurance Open Logo

About this Project:

The third Paul McBeth Foundation project will bring two 9 hole courses to a major city in a country that currently does not have a permanent disc golf course.

Medellin already has a strong Ultimate Frisbee community, and interest in disc golf has been growing. We will be partnering with local resident Ken Loukinen, the Ledgestone Insurance Open, and a local nonprofit to bring these courses to the city. This project will give immediate access to the sport of disc golf to a city with a population estimated to be over 4 million people.

Ken has already received permission to run the first PDGA event in Colombia and plans to do so soon after completion of the project.

Why Medellin?

Disc golf appears ready to explode in Colombia, and we feel that this investment will open many doors for disc golf throughout the country. Ken has worked closely with the local government and has a tremendous amount of support from the entire community. With strong partners in place and a community eager for access to the sport, we felt this opportunity was a tap-in birdie.

Currently, the city of Chicago provides very few options for disc golf within city limits. And with a population of 2.7 million, there are plenty of people – kids, seniors, and everyone in between – who could use an affordable option to get outside and be active.
