Project: Montevideo, Uruguay

Project Partners

 

About This Project:

In 2024, the Paul McBeth Foundation ventures back to South America, introducing Uruguay's first permanent disc golf course in the capital city of Montevideo. Montevideo's disc golf community, led by dedicated PDGA members Mauro Betschart and Petr Vyazovetskiy, has long awaited the establishment of a permanent course. Currently, players rely on portable baskets, setting up each hole before play. A permanent course not only simplifies access but also provides a platform for introducing newcomers to the sport's basics and fostering skill development.

This project builds upon PMF's previous success in South America, notably with the installation of two nine-hole courses in Medellin, Colombia, in 2021, fostering remarkable growth in the sport.

Dynamic Discs' generous donation of baskets further underscores the collective commitment to fostering a thriving disc golf community in Montevideo. With support from partners like the Professional Disc Golf Association, this project not only marks Uruguay's inaugural disc golf course but also paves the way for future growth across the region, extending into neighboring Argentina. Join us in supporting this groundbreaking endeavor and future projects by becoming a member of our Builders Club.

Why This Community?

With a population exceeding 1.3 million, Montevideo emerges as a prime location for disc golf, as recognized by UDisc's opportunity index. Parque Franklin Delano Roosevelt, renowned for its picturesque eucalyptus trees and recreational offerings, serves as an ideal location for this 18 hole disc golf course. Surrounded by schools and frequented by sports clubs, the park offers diverse opportunities for community engagement through disc golf. The Paul McBeth Foundation envisions a vibrant disc golf scene, complete with weekly leagues, youth clinics, and an annual sanctioned tournament, aligning seamlessly with PMF's community-centric mission.
