Disc Golf in New Zealand

The 2016 King Country Classic

Polo X Grounds Course, Mananui, Taumarunui 23 & 24 April

Disc Golf New Zealand

This is round 7 of the 2016 NZDG Tour and is an event not to be missed. The Lost Tribe will look after you exceeding well [in fact there is every chance you'll gain a kilo or two over the weekend.] Corynne's catering is something special and worth the entry fee before you even get to play golf. The course is easy to negotiate but very testing to play and always attracts a top field.
