About the event
This three day event is sanctioned by both the PDGA (A-Tier) and NZDG (Major) and is proudly presented by Discmania. We are very excited to be able to play on both the world class Spa Park course, and return to the Taupō Golf Club for our Event HQ and a modified and expanded 21 hole layout on the Tauhara course. This one of the largest celebrations of Disc Golf that New Zealand has ever seen. Come along and be part of the action!
