Frisbee Golf Doubles: Winter Wind-Up

Date: Saturday 20th June
Time: Meet at 12.30pm for a 1.00pm start
Location: Queenstown Gardens rotunda
Price: $10.00 each for frisbee golfers, spectators free

Format: Open and Mixed Doubles

Grab a friend and try your hand at Frisbee Golf. Ambrose Doubles is a fun format where people play in pairs and both partners play every throw. The best throw is selected then both players take their next throw from that position. This enables you and your partner to both help each other out and typically get lower scores than you would by yourself. There are two divisions in this Ambrose tournament – Open and Mixed Doubles.

Prizes for first, second, and third.

Enter on the day. Registration at the rotunda in the Queenstown Gardens, by the Lily Pond, from 12 p.m. for a 1.00pm start.

Get into it, we know you are going to love it!
