some nice shiny new venues on the tour in 2015.

Loch Tay is a Seamus Scanlon production and Myerscough is Chros O'Brien/Jamie Martin. Im sure they will all pipe up to explain a bit more about whats in store.

Mount Edgecombe is Plymouth, they have been working hard with Mat Cutler and Steve Cox to get themselves established.

They have a 13 hole pay to play course at present, but are expanding and will have a championship 18 planned/installed ready for autumn next year.

they have branded themselves as "flyers disc golf"

Can anyone tell me about the courses in Preston and Loch Tay?
I didn't know they existed, are they full 18 hole courses?

Bedworth is only a 1 day event correct? Just thought I'd double check it wasn't a typo before I go and plan something else for the Saturday!

I'm 99% sure Bedworth will be 2 days and that's a typo

yes only one QP, this is the first year that all venues will only host one event per year - unless circumstance necessitate

this will be the plan for future years as well.

It's a shame as I think the two different styles/times of year of the previous QP events makes it almost different courses being played but on the positive side I think it's a great move forward and it makes me happy that we have more courses/players in the country to allow for a full tour while only visiting each location once :)

I think it will open up a lot more one day event opportunities as well which is also great!

Looking good! Lots of spare weekends in the summer for some localised one-dayers as well which is cool :)
