Team Upper Park

Meet team upper park

Upper Park has sponsored disc golf players for years. With the change in ownership in September 2022 we thought a lot about the connection between the players, our brand, and our collective audiences.

Naturally, we want our player team to help promote our brand, but we also want to help our players grow their brands. Because building our brands together helps #growthesport. It’s a virtuous cycle and aligns with our core value of creating legendary relationships.

Our team is made up of professional players who compete in the Disc Golf Pro Tour and also “High Vibers” who are passionate about disc golf in their local communities. From top pros to skilled content creators our team is diverse and highly skilled.

We support our players through:

  • commissions from orders with their player codes
  • dedicated social media support for idea generation
  • liking and sharing our player posts to increase exposure
  • giveaways, discounts, and incentives throughout the year
  • frequent communication about product updates, business updates, new player announcements, and other news

So look for lots of great player-related content on our social media channels, follow all of these amazing players, and join us in celebrating this awesome sport.

    My first tournament participation in the Austrian mountains in summer of 2016 was where my career as a competitive player began. In the following years I realized what amazing things this sport has to offer and totally got addicted by everything in disc golf. So far I participated at tournaments in 16 different countries.

    The experiences and friendships I made during those trips are unforgettable and make me always feeling thankful to be part of this game.

    I was introduced to disc golf in 2015 while playing college baseball. After college I moved back to Kansas City and started playing in the Kansas City Disc Golf Leagues. I fell in love with being out in nature, competing, and the awesome disc golf community. I now compete regionally in the Midwest. Upper Park has made disc golf even more enjoyable with the lightweight premium disc golf bag that keeps me prepared for everything the course has to offer. Follow my journey on:

    Katie Belty

    Katie Belty

    Hello all! My name is Katie Belty, and I am a 21-year-old professional disc golfer living in Bixby, Oklahoma. I have played in PDGA-sanctioned tournaments for five years and have played casually for much longer than that (PDGA# 106422). I am sponsored by Millennium Golf Discs, Movement Laboratory, TEX’s Smoke’N’Chews, and Upper Park.

    A little bit about me: Competing in disc golf is a passion of mine that was first inspired by my dad. He would always tell me about his disc golf misadventures and would cart my sister and me around the course in a stroller when we were babies. My dad has been my coach for many years and is a big part of my motivation now. I aim to make my family, friends, sponsors, and community proud by representing them and myself to the best of my ability. I hope to make a name for myself in the coming years and have high aspirations for my disc golf career.

    Josh Berwanger

    I am Dr. Josh! I am from the Chicago Land area, but I currently live in Fort Collins, CO. I started playing disc golf in 2015. One of my friends was graduating from undergraduate, and our group of friends went on a camping/disc golf road trip across Michigan and Ohio to celebrate. I had never played before this road trip, but by the end, I had caught the bug.

    After years of playing casually with my friends, I joined my first league and played in my first tournament in 2018. I played a couple tournaments and league rounds in 2019 before getting married. Between marriage, covid, and finishing up my PhD program, I did not play many competitive rounds in 2020 and 2021, but after getting my PhD and moving to Colorado, I have gotten back into the scene. I am an avid member of the local clubs (North Gate and Mile High), and I have been making disc golf content for both as well as being a part of weekly leagues/tournaments. I turned pro this year, and I have been truly enjoying the journey of competing, making content, being a part of the local community, and growing the sport. It is truly a pleasure to be a disc golfer in Colorado!

    Other than disc golf, I have been a high-level athlete for most of my life playing college soccer. I love science and learning. I work as a PhD analytical chemist for an animal pharmaceutical company. I love spending time outdoors. Hiking, camping, snowboarding, and live music are my other favorite pastimes. I also love eating good food, drinking good beer, and getting to know new people.

    After playing soccer all my life, a friend got me in to disc golf in the pandemic. I participate in weekly leagues, pdga competitions, but perhaps most importantly I play with good friends and create new friendships with other players of all ages and levels every week. I play with Upper Park's Shift bag and it often becomes a topic of conversation. This season, the bag will follow me around Norway to take photos to instagram with a photo of all the signature holes and some info about the courses! Extremely proud to be a part of Team Upper Park!

    Chris Dendurent

    Chris "Duck" Dendurent

    With a Disc Sports Career that spans nearly 40 years, I am still as motivated and excited to promote the joys and benefits of our sport. I began playing disc golf in 1986 while still in high school. I was invited by my “Ultimate“ Teammates who were attending Wichita State University. They invited me to play “Frisbee Golf” to which my reply was “How Boring!” After my teammates DID NOT show up, I found a local player that proved to me that I could not have been more wrong. In fact, Disc Golf literally took one throw to fall in love with!

    Now, after all these years, Disc Golf has travelled with as well as taken me all over the world. Disc Golf has also become my professional business and is now a goal in my future retirement. As a player, I am still the most enthusiastic competitor, but am now also a promoter of the tremendous qualities of our game. I especially hope to serve as the greatest ambassador of our game to all players of any experience level!!! I am focused on introducing our game to our junior competitors, with an emphasis on those who might need our help the most!!!

He’s known for smooth midrange shots, alleged “sneaky distance”, grimy trucker hats, and whining when people lump him in with ultimate players. Fish’s preferred UPDG bag is the Shift, but he uses the Rebel on courses with lots of water, because he gets cranky when he loses discs he likes.

    My first disc golf experience was in 2012 on our local disc golf course. Thenceforth, I was hooked and began to play as much courses as possible in Germany and later all over Europe. In 2016 I met my lovely wife Wiebke on a disc golf course and from that moment on we are inseparable on and off the course. Only one year later we got a reinforcement by our wonderful daughter. I would say I owe disc golf a lot and try my best to distribute as much good vibes for the sport as I can.

I started throwing discs about 12-15 years ago, but I wasn’t that serious with the sport until about 6 years ago.I love competing, arranging clinics and tournaments. I’m a backhand dominant player who loves the force over anhyzer shots with something stable to overstable.

    My favourite disc at the moment is the Thought Space Athletics – Coalesce, the most dependable fairway driver there is!

    The Upper Park Rebel have saved my disc golf career. I’ve had back problems for some years now, and the Rebel fits on my back perfectly, it lowers the stress on my body while I can bring all things I need to the course. I love the sustainability and the core values are right up my alley!

    I have been playing disc golf in the national and European tour since early -90’s and built a course and a club where i live.

    Being one of the old timers in the game, i get a lot of questions about techniques, rules, how to’s and so on by the younger crowd and I’m so happy to teach and share what I know to possibly make someone better faster without the detours and ”wrong” ways of practice. In my everyday life i work as a firefighter and a fire technician.

    I’ve tried most bags during the years so I wear my Upper Park Rebel with pride, it’s truly amazing, from fabric to storage, weight, details and looks!  I will try to help make Upper Park as accessible here in Sweden as it is in the U.S.

    As i spoke to Martin, I felt the love for the game and the community, which is what I’m all about. Travel, play, hang out, meet people from all around the world and make friends and memories! The perks of getting old, it’s not the wins that count, it’s the memories!

    One of the biggest things when it comes to tournaments is keeping your focus and maintaining composure. Sure we all get upset, but how you respond is what makes you.

    I love disc golf because I can be by myself, clear my head, and be at peace. I can also meet many new people and create awesome new friendships.

    Rippin Discs - Connor Izatt and Hunter Snow

    Rippin Discs is a YouTube channel that was started on a whim but has turned into something very special. It was started after only playing disc golf for about a month but it has also taught us how to play, how to interact with the disc golf community, and it has taught us just how impactful disc golf is on our lives and others. We have been very fortunate to meet amazing people locally as well as across the world all through our YouTube channel as well as our Instagram. - Connor Izatt and Hunter Snow

    Connor Izatt - I have been playing disc golf for about two years and I have never been so addicted to a sport in my life. I started playing soon after I had graduated high school where I played all four years of basketball. I had planned on playing college basketball in Vancouver, Washington but I had decided not to go and it all worked out because I found my new favorite sport (thanks to my partner Hunter) and started our YouTube channel, Rippin Discs. Now I am going to school at Weber State University and playing disc golf as much as I possibly can. I am proud to be a new sponsor of Upper Park Disc Golf as well as Infinite Discs and am looking forward to growing the sport!

    Hunter Snow - I first found Disc Golf when I was in high school but I only played every once in a while with a couple of friends. I then served a two-year LDS mission in Kumasi, Ghana after high school and when I got back I met my beautiful wife, Annjelica. Randomly, I decided I wanted to play disc golf one day so I invited my younger sister's boyfriend and we went to Riverpark in Riverdale Utah. We played eighteen holes in the freezing rain, drove all the way home, then drove all the way back to play eighteen more holes because we caught the bug immediately. We then decided to start our youtube channel which has been an amazing ride and I am glad to have the support of Upper Park Disc Golf and Infinite Disc

    Chris Young "Youngbuks"

    In 2003 when I moved to Eugene, Oregon, I fell in love with the game of disc golf.

    One night, I happened upon a league in which world champions Avery Jenkins and Dave Feldberg were in attendance. I Immediately fell in love with the sport and the people. That point forward I have had the chance to play disc golf courses and events throughout the United States and Canada monthly.

    After living in Oregon and Colorado for 9 years I found myself back home in Vermont in 2007. It was at this point that I started to not only play but help run events and grow the sport here in Vermont.

    I became the leader of our state wide club and worked very hard to spearhead one of the most successful Ice Bowls in the country raising $100,000 for Vermont food shelves.

    I have designed and built several courses in our community. Taught several summer camps and after school programs for kids. Built relationships with sponsors and partners and now find myself taking the next step forward, which is Disc Golf Vermont.

    Disc golf found me in the summer of 1998, & it’s been a part of me ever since. Whether it was leagues, helping run tournaments or eventually heading my own events, for the next 14 years I worked hard to grow disc golf in my hometown. In 2012 I negotiated my first sponsorship with a local disc golf shop (Cloud 9) & was offered a second with the Prodigy Street Team. Early efforts in promoting these companies focused my motivation to social media in my competitive career. This is where I became a student of social media. The last two years I’ve been on the road full time touring & it’s been the most amazing experience ever. I’m truly blessed to be able to live the life I have.

    Hello internet!

    This is Sanna (#90310), Finnish woman living in Spain. I started playing disc golf in 2015, bought my Upper Park Disc Golf Rebel bag in 2016 and I still have it unbroken and weekly use. Being an engineer and an entrepreneur is a bit boring at times, so on my free time I love to do sports and traveling - wherever I go discs go with me! Best thing about disc golf is when you think that one shot after the round and wish you could always throw/put like that.

    It feels great to be part of Team Upper Park Disc Golf! I’m also sponsored by Discmania.

    My first round of disc golf was actually by "accident" in Frisco, CO in 2019. We were on vacation there and found a park that looked to have some breathtaking views. Of course we stumbled upon some baskets, ran to the nearest Walmart to pick up some skeeters, and off we went. I quickly realized that disc golf is much more than a sport, but a family, and community (one that I had desperately been needing in my life). I am a traveler at heart and now disc golf is part of each one of my adventures! This year I hope to continue making an impact in the community and introducing more and more good humans to our disc golf family. Disc golf, y'all!

This sport is all about the camaraderie, laughter along the trails, and the walk as brothers and sisters. Where we come together and create a family encouraging each other, celebrating our triumphs, and talking some smack along the way.

    My introduction to disc golf was through helping a good friend install a course at our local park. After seeing how excited everyone was just to play this sport, I had to try my hand at slinging these circles. That was in 2018 and I have been hooked ever since! Now I'm part of an amazing community here in Cecil County, MD helping to grow the sport through course installation and running tournaments/events.

    In February of 2022, I started my own brand, Happy with Par and began designing merch and apparel for the everyday golfer with an emphasis on positive mental attitude. It's been a blast getting to meet so many awesome and like-minded people through this sport and I hope to continue making connections and cultivating smiles in the process.
