Disc golf has arrived in town. Did you see all the players in Queens Park on that wet April weekend? Multitudes of frantic disc golfers braving the weather to fling flying discs around an 18 ‘hole’ course.

The inaugural Invercargill tournament was hosted on 21-22 April by Disc Golf South, a new sports club formed last year.

Gareth, our Managing Director, is a keen disc golf man. He loves the challenge of aiming his favourite flying disc (sorry, it’s no longer called a “Frisbee”) to land in each purpose-built metal ‘basket’.

Club President, Marty Conway, commented “What an awesome weekend! Thanks to everyone that took part, to all the helpers, to our funders and sponsors and to the local organisations that helped us along the way. 98 players from around the country took to the course, which is a record number for these tournaments in NZ!”

FI Innovations staff made each of the carbon fibre discs for the 10 spectacular trophies. Ocean Shell from Riverton crafted the wooden stands and added the paua shell detail.

Check out the photos of these masterpieces.
