The Pictures

Disc Golf New ZealandWelcome - Simon welcomes competitors to his place and explains the rules. But like most Kiwi men, Carson don't need no instructions.

Welcome to our place - the disc golfers were very thankful to Simon and Yvette Feasey (and Talia & Katelin) for allowing them to play on the beautiful Bella Rhaka course. Bella Rakha offers excellent facilties for corporate retreats etc - see www.bellarakha.co.nz for details.

Art Everywhere - Simon and Yvette are slowly adding artwork throughout the property. Many people didn't even realise these [wot are they Bob?] were one of the pieces.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Perfect Design - And the basket looks good too. Designed by host Simon Feasey, these disc golf baskets are a work of art and we are sure it won't be long before the design is copied around the world. As for the design of top Levin golfer Shane Sullivan, that's a true work of art.

Relaxed and Accurate - Damo Peters knows this course well: he lives at the property! And therefore it should have come across as no surprise to see him in the final.

Speedos are cool - Auckland golfer Dave 'Speedo' Keene chips up to the 15th.

Downhill Leftie - Big arm leftie Brad Muir (Auckland) had to turn the dial down for the steep decline to the 17th.

Disc Golf New Zealand
New Balance - Appropriate gear as Lawton Williams (Levin) applies just the right power and finese on the short 17th.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Straight As She Goes - Every course needs a hole like Bella Rakha's 14th (but just one! - ed.) where nothing other than a dead straight drive is punished.
