Capital of Cool
is the capital of New Zealand. It offers an unforgettable city experience in a natural setting.
It is located between a beautiful harbour and rolling green
hills. Wellington has excellent shopping, professional theatre
and cafes and restaurants all close to untouched nature spots.
Wellington is only two kilometers wide so it can be explored
easily on foot.
Te Papa, New Zealand’s national museum is on the waterfront.
Walk to Te Papa from a central city restaurant and stop at a
local fashion store or an art gallery on the way.
The South Coast is one of Wellington’s most beautiful
places. Visit the New Zealand fur seal colony or just watch
the waves. Mountainbike through native bush at Makara Peak,
or kayak out to Scorching Bay – the choice is yours.

use of a small park. The two tees for each basket works
real well; pretty much 1 through 9 is quite different from
10 through 18. A great course to introduce someone to the
game for the first time. This course is a lot more about
placement than length, someone with a medium drive but
good accuracy should be able to compete with a long driver.
Special acknowledgement to Mark Dakiv, the
fine young Canadian who lived in New Zealand for some
time (and travelled back to Canada to take his own National
title) and spent many hours lobbying the local council and
securing the support of local residents and schools to make
this Disc Golf Park a reality. Mark is overseas again and Dylan Cooper has doing a sterling job keeping up the profile
of the game. He's always keen for a round so why don't you
drop him a line when you know you'll be in town...

The Alternative 18
When the NZ Tour comes to Harcourt Park, some of the tee positions are moved back and the course takes on quite a different light.
Many local players enjoy playing the 'Fault Alt' and we can share that course with you via this map (thanks to John Lee).
