ADG National Tour tees off at Poimena::Two Heads Open

The start of the 2011 Australian Disc Golf National Tour is just over a month away and teeing off the new season is the Two Heads Open, here at Poimena Reserve on 29-30 January.

Players can expect a warm welcome and a fantastic disc golf experience. The event normally attracts an equal mix of local and interstate players, with the occasional player from further afield.

New Australian Champion Chris Finn will be competing at the Two Heads Open

Australian Champion Confirmed
The start of the new disc golf season is always exciting and the current Australian Champion, Perth’s Chris Finn, has confirmed he will be competing at this year’s Two Heads Open.

The course has never looked better
The course has seen some improvements since the last Two Heads Open, 12 months ago. Most significantly, the eight remaining original baskets (installed in 1986) have been replaced wth new baskets. There have been a few pin position changes and more work has been done on levelling tees. Finally, the area surrounding the new club house has been developed to make the player experience even more comfortable and memorable. The course has never looked better.

Preparation for Australian National Championships
Many players will be aware that Poimena Reserve is hosting the Australian National Championships later this year, October 21-23.
The Two Heads Open is an ideal opportunity to practice the course in preparation for Australia’s premier tournament.

World Champs give Poimena the thumbs up
Earlier this month, Poimena was fortunate to get a visit from disc golf World Champions Nate Doss and Valarie Jenkins.
Both of them loved the course, Nate said it was the best course he’d played in Australia and he couldn’t wait to come back (maybe for the Nationals in October!).
