The Paul McBeth Foundation sees the incredible benefits that disc golf can provide for both individuals and groups of people. The golf lessons learned on the course associated with hard work, commitment, integrity, critical thinking, decision making, communication, and building and maintaining relationships go way past the course and deep into the futures of all who participate. The Paul McBeth Foundation is committed to making this a reality for as many people as possible as we seek to develop and introduce sustainable disc golf experiences in underserved locations with limited or no access to the sport.
As an organization, we were immediately attracted to the project proposal to help bring disc golf to Chicago. Chicago has such a rich history in sports, and we would love to see disc golf play a role in that going forward. We believe there is incredible potential for disc golf to thrive in the city, and the opportunities it will provide for the community and individuals are invaluable.
