I'll just point out the change to the QP Open tournament fees.

"Rookies only pay £10
For a full weekend of golf Rookies only pay £10.
This is to cover green fees for 3 rounds of golf, and BDGA tax/insurance.
Rookies = never played a PDGA or BDGA tournament event at any course.
It will be great to get some new faces. (and some old that don't play tourneys)"

So that's a flat £10 fee for rookies (no reductions for BDGA / QP membership etc.)

There will be rookie specific prizes (discs)
So If you haven't played in a bdga tournament before, now is the time to give it a try......

Sorry I can't play this, especially as the way Mavis has played so far this month I'd say that Ad Am is wide open. :twisted:

shot a +3 on the black course yesterday, course looks great and i saw the employee ripping out briars by 8 tee.

i tried to play with all the ropes in mind that jeez, all jesse's volunteers must spend hours laying out for us. can't thank them enough as that must be a real argenous task...

i miss the boat on 7 though... well, maybe not. :twisted:

i threw so many mulligans it's a wonder i only lost these discs, please keep an eye out for them.
white grinder cannon way down the hill of 7(balck course) , must be in the stream?
z crush in stream by bridge of avon calling.

i really loved marking notes down in the kick-azz booklet jessie had made for the british open that i missed in may. :D


5 weeks!!!!

I dunno about the rest of Team GB, but after playing for 7 days straight I'm getting the DTs! What better way of avoiding cold turkey than to sign up to your next tournament! Link here: http://www.quarrypark.co.uk/index.php/register

Hmm, I am reviewing the conversation in my mind:

Me: well I really enjoyed Euro's but didn't perform very well. What say we cut short our only holiday of the year together and I go and play QP Open?

Can anyone give me a lift from London to QP that weekend and return?? Or at least one way?

I would love to be able to catch up with you ppl and to take some Disc Golf photos to support next years Disc Golf UK photo calendar, as I am very much enjoying this year's one :D

Cheers,

A quick apology, the registered players list has not been updated for a while, as Jesse is on holiday and I haven't a clue how to update it...

From what I've seen on forums arranging transport we should have an excellent turn out, thanks for your patience, I'll get Jesse to update as soon as I can.

Here's the course map and hole by hole particulars for the QP open
Basically as the British Open, with a couple of tweaks.
hole 5 (six2seven) is as the british open, so an island fairway, if you don't make the island on your drive then its to the drop zone at the base of the slope behind the trees (you don't want to be there!)
Hole 6 (avon calling) A slight change here, as if your drive is OB then you'll go to the drop zone (red tee?)
Holes 9 and 10 (woods) the roofline of the shed and below is OB, the deck not under the roof is not OB.

Anyway its all on the back of the map...
Any queries or questions stick them on here and Bruce can answer them.....

Good map, Andrew. A couple of questions for someone to pick up:

#1/#18 - Will the line of the fence behind the 18th basket be continued down to the stream please? I doubt it'll come into play on #18, but it has helped before for fading drives on #1.

#6 - Great idea to have red-tee as drop zone, it was never easy to see where discs cross the line from the tee. I assume now the answer will be the former, but please clarify is this DZ used for ALL potential OB lies off the tee or ONLY for drives that go in the Avon? Other OBs for example:
- Drives that land in the Stream and not the Avon
- Drives that never make it in-bounds
- Drives that griplock into the field behind

I assume regular OB rules apply if going OB from the DZ, but please calirfy.

Thanks

Yes, and if the stream is unclear then we'll rope that also. Strimming both banks is on the job list to save us needing to!

Yes, DZ will apply a la Burnlaw drop zones; any OB drive goes to DZ (or re-tee if you prefer), subsequent OB plays as normal.
