Disc Golfing in Ethiopia!
This weekend we are sending one of our staff members, Elem Katambo, to participate in Africa’s inaugural Professional Disc Golf Association event, the Ethiopia Open. Being held on Saturday the 17th of February in Assosa, Ethiopia, it will be the first ever event of its kind on African soil.
Since having our own course installed back in May of 2016 with the help of Eagles Wings Disc Golf, we’ve seen tremendous growth locally, especially among the young children we work with. Several of our staff have also become local disc golf pro’s, and Elem has gone so far as to be an officially registered PDGA member.
While Elem will be traveling to Ethiopia to compete and represent both our organization and Zambia itself, we look forward to being a part of the disc golf growth in Africa. Two years ago, Zambia knew nothing of disc golf. Now we have Zambia’s only course and are proud to send one of our own for an international competition. Who knows, maybe one day we’ll host our own event!
We are proud to be a part of the event, which you can read more about HERE!
Be sure to check back later to see the results!
The results are in and Elem took first place in the amateur division! Final standings HERE.
We are proud of his effort and thrilled he was able to take part in this event. We now begin to dream of hosting our own similar event in the future. Thank you for the continued support.
