    Disc Golf in Jamaican Schools

    I am looking for schools in Jamaica that have space for a disc golf course. They would need 7 or more acres of property to do this. Any ideas or thoughts?

    I ask why?
    Jamaica schools have too much f sports... and have sustainable programs... why introduce anothef sport? This will divert resources away from existing sport and is imho cultural hegemony....
    What nonsense! How can you have a revolution without shooting people ? Lenin 26th October 1917...

    It's free play once a course is in. Courses usually are installed in areas that are already maintained and are open to everyone and is free. This would give the local residents a new cheap pastime. It has just been approved for Olympic competition and the opportunity to earn scholarships at US Universities is increasing every year. It's the fastest growing sport in the world. It's a sport that a father or grandfather can enjoy with their Children & Grand children. You don't have to be in shape, strong, fast or tall to enjoy and excel at this sport. All you need is a disc once course in. Also in my plan is to donate the equipment to these schools to set up a disc golf shop at the school. The sales will help with cost and generate funds to re supply the Schools pro shops to sustain the sport.

    Another benefit is that Jamaican courses would attract Disc Golfers from all over the world to come to Jamaica, vacation and spend money.

    Here are some examples of great shots that made the top ten on ESPN
    Disc golf is played like ball golf except you throw a disc into a basket in the least amount of throws.

    That is less interesting than filing tax returns. I assure you jamaicans have more rewarding pass times like flinging rackstone at mango trees....

    Good luck. My suggestion introduce it to Sweden....

    I think encouraging more diversified sports programs cannot be a bad thing even in Jamaican schools.

    Furthermore, all you have to do is tell a Jamaican that he or she cannot do a sport then just see how fast they sign up just to prove you wrong.

    Thank you for your thoughts. Sweden has 186 courses and is home to one of the largest disc manufacturers in the World and some of the best players. There's over 800 courses in Europe.
    I do understand where you are coming from, your post on education and sport in Jamaica was an interesting read.
