Disc golfers from all corners of Australia are making a beeline for Hobart in March to play on Australia’s oldest course and take part in Tasmania’s biggest tournament of the 2014 season. Now in its 7th year, the Two Heads Open presented by Discology takes place from 14-16 March at Poimena Reserve Disc Golf Course in Austins Ferry, near Hobart.
The Poimena course has a special place in the hearts of many players in the Australian disc golf community, not just because it’s the Country’s oldest course, but because they enjoy playing it so much. The Two Heads Open has been a regular on the Australian National Tour since 2008 and has steadily been building a reputation as one of Australia’s best disc golf weekends.
Tournament Director, Garth Gray, said “We want everyone to have a good time – players, spectators and staff. We are fortunate to have a course that people love to play, at the same time we really want to give the players a memorable experience away from the course. I particularly encourage local players who’ve never experienced a competition event like this to come along and give it a go.”
Discology has been a sponsor of the Two Heads Open from its conception in 2008. Discology owner Richard Sampson said, “the Poimena Reserve course is such an important asset for disc golf in Tasmania and has a long and wonderful history. The Two Heads Open is playing a vital role in preserving it’s legacy and taking the course forward.”
The tournament is open to anyone, regardless of playing experience or ability. There are player divisions based on skill level – Recreational, Advanced and Open. There are also divisions based on gender and age – Junior, over 40s and over 50s.
There is a random doubles competition on Friday 14th and the tournament in earnest begins on Saturday and ends on Sunday. Players have the choice to play all three days, two days, one day or just one round.
