Welcome to our look back on the year 2016 for all things Disc Golf in New Zealand, another great year for this growing recreational sport.

2016 discgolf.co.nz Auckland Disc Golf Championships

Monte Cecilia Park November 19-20

One of the few tournaments on The Tour now where we have to haul baskets onto the course (as well as deal with a council who seems to be purposely making this as hard as possible), but once the fun begins it is all worth it! Thanks to everybody who helped make this happen, what a brilliant weekend of Disc Golf.

Twizel Moonbase Disc Golf Championships 2016

Twizel October 29-30 November

Just the thought of that stunning drive from Queenstown up the guts of the South Island to Twizel was enough to get this reporter on the plane for a weekend in the Southern Alps. Not to mention a chance to catch up with the locals and play Disc Golf in that clean alpine air.

2016 Auckland Woodhill Disc Golf Festival

Woodhill MTB & Disc Golf Park 21 - 24 October

As the name suggested, the only thing that was going to get in the way at this event over the long Labour weekend was wood, and it did.

The Fourth Peter Crowther Memorial Disc Golf Tournament 2016

2016 Auckland Coastal Classic

Waitawa Regional Park 18-19 June 2016

After one of the worlds best disc golfers Dave Feldberg described this course as "the toughest I've ever played", it was always going to be interesting to see who would turn up to take it on a second time.

Twenty nine players did and looked like it was a lot more enjoyable the second time.

2016 Redwood Disc Golf Championship

Redwood Disc Golf Park, Rotorua. January 16-17 2016

The 2016 NZDG Tour is up and running. Event number one is always a great chance to see who's put in the work over the holiday period and what a stunning two days we had in the Rotorua Redwoods on this now 18 permanent basket course. In this reporter's mind there is no better place to spend a hot summer's day than in the shade of the giant redwoods with a disc in your hand.
