About this Project:
Project 2.3 was our first project in Africa, and Uganda presented us with another opportunity to install multiple courses.
The first course was installed at Ndejje University, a location primed and ready to embrace disc golf at their campus. The university sits just 25 miles north of Uganda’s most populous city, Kampala. We worked with the university to install an 18-hole course on a 25+ acre area that they have designated specifically for disc golf, with a team of maintenance employees regularly overseeing upkeep of the course.
The second course was installed with similarities to previous PMF projects, as a local youth organization that helps house over 400+ children in the village of Katosi offered use of their land for the project. The organization focuses on providing food, housing, and education to these children, and disc golf has now been added as a great recreational tool that is located right outside of their schoolhouse along the waters of Lake Victoria.
Thank you to our Gold Sponsor Ledgestone who helped us fund this project and the PDGA who helped us financially with shipping the Chainstar Pros to Uganda.
As a country without any disc golf courses in the heart of Africa, Uganda is an ideal location for the Paul McBeth Foundation to bring access to the sport. We have two very enthusiastic partners that will drive these projects forward and share the sport with many people. The university, specifically, will give us the opportunity to share disc golf with many other African universities outside of Uganda through competitions and other sporting events.
