Kiwis who love the sport of disc golf
Invercargill is the southernmost and westernmost city in New Zealand, and one of the southernmost cities in the world. It is the commercial centre of the Southland region. The city lies in the heart of the wide expanse of the Southland Plains some 18km north of Bluff, which is the southernmost town in the South Island. It sits amid rich farmland that is bordered by large areas of conservation land and marine reserves, including Fiordland National Park covering the south-west corner of the South Island and the stunning rugged Catlins coastal region.
And in 2017 a permanent disc golf course became a reality in Invercargill. Complementing the growth of the sport in the South Island Disc Golf South President Martin Conway and friends worked hard to make this happen and now we are seeing this location on the New Zealand Disc Golf Tour. Regular Kiwi disc golfers would know that Martin Conway comes from one of NZ's famous disc golfing families, being the son of legendary Bay of Plenty disc golfer Ming "Kaching" Menzies and the mighty Mick Conway. So you can be sure that - although short - this course will have some great challenges for any disc golfer.
