Tuckers Beach Queenstown 26 & 27 July 2014.

There had been a lot of talk about having a major disc golf tournament in the middle of winter in Queenstown. And during the week leading up to the Tucker Beach ‘Rush’ , it was looking like the weather was going to be a major factor. And It was. All for the good though. Beautiful winter conditions, with blue skies and little to no wind, welcomed all that were about to make history in this inaugural tournament.

The 2014 Woodhill Open.

Woodhill Disc Golf Park, State Highway 16  West Auckland June 14 & 15 2014

The 2014 Woodhill Disc Golf Open seemed to get everything going its way...

In the middle of June, a touch shy of the shortest day and anyone who attended may have been excused for thinking it was middle of Spring or Autumn.

 All the elements of a good tourny were well represented: beer, wine, coffee, sunshine, a keen field, some seriously cool holes and even a seemingly un-aceable Ace!

$285 in the bank for madman leftie

From our cobweb files we uncovered this footage from Auckland's Crater Cup where long haired leftie lout Marty de Haas had for the previous 3 rounds been enticed to go for a short 60m ace and paid the price each time scoring 6, 7 and 6. But on the final round as the sun broke through the drizzle and birds a-chirping, de Dev's shot flies true and sweet to claim the $285 Ace Kitty.
