NZDG makes it 18 baskets for Queenstown Gardens

Disc Golf New Zealand

Originally set up in the early 80's the Queenstown Gardens Disc Golf Course was like most courses around the country, an 'object' course.

But after James Smithells shifted to the area in the mid 90's the disc catcher baskets started to appear.

Gentil Sport was proud to donate the first one which was one of the early NZ prototypes and from there slowly but surely as funding became available more and more have been added.

And now with New Zealand Disc Golf coming to the party the Queenstown Gardens course finally has 18 permanent baskets!

A big well done to James and his troopers, we all look forward to playing a round at The Gardens.

Spa Park, Taupo, New Zealand July 3, 4 2010

A mid-winter tournament in the Central North Island always has the possibility of some tough play, but there is no better venue than the beautiful gentle rolling fairways of Taupo's Spa Park. And the weather played ball this year!

2010 Tauranga Extreme Disc Golf Tournament

Disc Golf New Zealand

There is something pleasing to the eye when a collection of deciduous trees readies for winter in a park bejewelled with lakes and vistas.  The leaves transform from their verdant normality to blazing showpieces duelling with the sunset.  And so McLaren Falls Park is a particularly pretty place to gather for an Autumnal disc golf tourney.
