Disc Golf in New Zealand

2011 Faultline Fury

August at Harcourt Park, Wellington.
NZDG Tour event number 9

Disc Golf New Zealand

Harcourt Park was another location used for numerous scenes in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, so one of the regular ‘bunkers’ that players encounter is the tour groups being shown around the park with their cameras out and map in hand tour guides pointing out what was shot where and when.
It’s a very handy park for tour golfers as the motor camp right next door offers a good range of accommodation options, and of course the chance to hop over the fence between rounds on a cold damp Wellington day to warm up and slip on a pair of dry socks (or tights) for the afternoon round. Record number were in attendence for the 2011 Faultline Fury.

Thanks to Photographer Jymi Best for his photo coverage of the Super 6 playoff (he was busy playing for the other rounds!).
