About this Project:
Project 2.3 is our first project in Africa, and we will not only be installing the first disc golf course in Uganda, but also the second!
Ndejje University is primed and ready to embrace disc golf at their campus that sits just 25 miles north of Uganda’s most populous city, Kampala. We will work with the university to install an 18-hole course on a 25+ acre area that they have designated for disc golf.
The second install shares similarities with previous PMF projects, as we will be partnering with a local youth organization that helps house over 400+ children in the village of Katosi. The organization focuses on providing food, housing, and education to these children, and disc golf will now be added as a great recreational tool that will be located right outside of their schoolhouse along the waters of Lake Victoria.
Ledgestone will join the Paul McBeth Foundation as the primary sponsor for this project.
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.
