About the event
Taupō Disc Golf are very proud to announce details of the '2024 Taupō Classic presented by Cosana'.
This three-day event is the first tournament of the 2024 Tour Down Under and sanctioned by both the PDGA (B-Tier) and NZDG (50 pointer).
It will offer an estimated $10,000 pro purse.
Taking place at the world class Spa Park, this 54-hole event is limited to 150 competitors and will feature the most challenging layout we have ever presented.
This is our club's premier tournament, and we are targeting top level players from across both New Zealand and overseas. Accordingly, the registration schedule will be structured using ratings-based tiers.
This Taupō Classic will be played over the weekend prior to the NZ National Championships. If you are travelling to them, Taupō is only 3hrs by road, so why not come a few days early and play both!
3x 18 hole rounds (same layout) over three days, tee time start. Group 1: MPO, FPO, MP40, MA1 (Gold layout). Par 61, approx 2450m. Group 2: FA1, MA40, FA40, MA2 (Blue layout). Par 64, approx 2250m.
