We are delighted to announce that the 2012 British Open Disc Golf Championships are to be held at Quarry Park on May 26-27th.
The invitation will soon be released and registration will be opened for players from the UK and abroad.
I am really excited to announce that you can now take a virtual tour of the course over the internet. Woo-hoo!!! It's similar to Google Streetview but 360 degree images were taken from atop an 8m mast at 3 points on the course. You can pan round and zoom in and out at your will.
We will be open for 3 extra days at half term: October 24, 25 and 26 (Monday to Wednesday). Otherwise, through Autumn and Winter our regular opening times are Saturdays and Sundays, when we open at 10:00 and close at either 6 p.m. or sunset (if earlier)
The 2011 British Open was held at Essex University on 20-21st August, and attracted players from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands, Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and Norway. The Open division was won by favourite Markus Kallstrom (SWE), the Womens division by Sophie Southgate (UK), Masters division by Marco LeHousse (BEL), Amateur division by Quarry Park regular, James Luton (UK) and the Grandmaster division by Quarry Park's Derek Robins. The British Open was also part of the first PDGA Global Disc Golf Tournament whereby players in 14 tournaments across the world competed against each other for a global prizemoney payout. Derek had the 3rd highest rating in the GM division, averaging 989 over 3 rounds, and earned an extra $90 on top of the prize money from the British Open.
