Room to Move

Native Tee

Disc Golf New Zealand
The Champs a Champ
- Jacko shows that one can focus on their game whilst showing courtesy to other players - a true champion.

Disc Golf New Zealand
"It was definately an Ace on 4!" - We don't know the conversation that ensued here but do suspect it had to do with scoring :o)

Moore than just a pretty face

The Full Monte - The 10th is a wonderful tee shot to watch from any angle. Here Sam Hulbe-Pulver starts things off well with a forehand release into the air heading towards the basket waaaaay down the end of the huge fairway.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Winning team - Scores are not so important when you have the style and grace of this foursome, from left Sam Hulbe-Pulver, Trevor Timothy, Mark Thomson and Quentin Golder.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Mind Games
- The feud between the calm friendly Mexican Juan Unda and the devious Dutch Marty de Haas has spanned decades and we see no respite in the near future. Here the bothersome Hollander tries in vain to get into Unda's mind as he delivers yet another deadly accurate approach shot.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Tartan Toss
- Prepared for all condition is Senior Grand Master Douglas MacIlroy.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Scarf-Ace?
- No, not Al Pacino, this is Tomáš Doležel daring to consider the possibilty of a hole-in-one on the long Hole18.

Disc Golf New Zealand
How many chucks can a Canuck chuck?
- What better way to control your flight on the disc-hungry Hole 14 than chucking a kneeling forehand! That's what [unknown G] here thought as he sent his plastic fading around the first overhang to drop back into the narrow fairway - well done! See below for how this hole can turn a dream round into a nightmare...

Disc Golf New Zealand
Well balanced

Calm Palmer
- Relatively new golfer on the scene Brad Palmer shows great drive control as he attempts to climb up the fairway of the 6th watched on by his group.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Canine Capers - Being a park that sees lots of dog walking it was no surprise to see at least one instance of a canine capture of a disc. Fortunately this was not a Waihekian's disc so the dog owner was not yelled at - it was all taken with a good ol' chuckle.

Disc Golf New Zealand
Righto Trev - Trev sends his trusty disc as straight as he can for the ace-able 15th.
