7th Tucker Beach Rush Disc Golf Tournament

Queenstown disc golf club is again proud to host its second annual New Zealand disc golf tour tournament for the year.

We are ready to showcase this beautiful part of New Zealand to the world. A solid long game is required but those soft finesse shots should be ready to come out of your bag when required. Post Covid-19 we have decided to allow our awesome sponsors some time to recovery from tough times. So rather than making requests for support by way of providing a multitude of prizes, we are going back to basics, and making this event all about the disc golf. We will still have some prizes though. Don’t fret.
