Queenstown Disc Golf Courses
We are very pleased that Queenstown is now home to two Disc Golf Courses. Click on the links below for full details of each course…
The course traverses anti-clockwise around the well established Queenstown Gardens. All targets are chain baskets. About half the holes are in the more open areas, with mowed grass underfoot, and the other half are in a pine forest, where the ceiling is low. It is a relatively short course, at 1220 metres (4000 ft). There are four par 4 holes, with two of these being over 100 metres. Two holes have compulsories and two others are blind, requiring spotters before driving. Overall the course favours right handers. It is free to play on the course.
This course was established in 2012, and, at the time of writing in May 2014, is about to increase its number of baskets from 6 to 12, with 18 being the goal in the near future. The remaining targets are green plastic PVC pipes with black strips. It is a figure 8 course, going anti clockwise then clockwise around the Tucker Beach Recreation Reserve beside the Shotover River. The course is relatively long, at 1928 m (6325 ft), with five holes over 122 m (400 ft), including a par 5 at 255 m (837 ft).
