Mission:

Ethiopian Disc Golf Association is the first disc sports association in Ethiopia, formed in 2015, which is working on introducing and promoting disc golf for kids, youth and other community groups. The process making the Association and disc golf sport to be official is under its way and we are hoping to make it official as soon as possible . Ethiopian Disc Golf Association is creating a link with school sports departments and teaching disc golf as both a competitive and recreational sport. Disc golf is a fantastic sport for school children and youth to become involved with. It is an inexpensive outdoor and lifetime activity that fosters the teaching of life building skills such as honesty, teamwork, concentration, accuracy and general athletic ability.

Thanks to the Professional Disc Golf Association for their help in funding this project with an international grant from their Marco Polo Program. Please read this article from the PDGA about our project: http://www.pdga.com/disc-golf-utopiain-ethiopia.
