The Perth Open is hitting Cockman Park THIS WEEKEND!!! and we still have limited places left if you haven’t pre-registered, so if you’re keen please pre-register at http://www.perthdiscgolf.com to secure your place.
For those of you that have already registered and are ready to throw, it should be a great tournament this year, especially since our tournament is also a part of the PDGA’s inaugural Global Disc Golf Tournament. This new concept compares our players scores over the weekend to competitors all over the world and should add a bit more excitement to the event (see http://www.pdga.com/global-dg-championship for more details).
Player fees are $50 for all Amateur divisions and $70 for Mens Open division, which includes a well-stocked players pack (for the first 25 pre-registrations), lunch both days and a cash purse for the pros.
The course used for the Perth Open this weekend will be the permanent nine-hole course at Cockman Park, Mulligan Drive Greenwood, with an additional temporary nine holes added to make up the eighteen. The semi-finals and finals will be played on the nine-hole modified “grunty” course to spice it up for the pointy end of the competition, with a few holes tweaked slightly from the standard “grunty” layout to avoid crossovers etc.
