A great deal of care went into the creation of items for the players packs, trophies and prizes for the 2018 Vic Open.  Players will have noticed a number of bespoke items, made with care by our very own Melbourne Disc Golf Club Members.

Bespoke items included in the players packs plus trophies and prizes for 2018 Vic Open

The trophies for the event were designed, 3-D printed and donated by Paul Arden from Fidget Mini.  Special filament was ordered to create gold, silver and bronze trophies and many hours were devoted to the printing and construction of trophies for all divisions.  Thank you Paul.  They look amazing and I am sure all recipients were delighted to take home one of these beauties.  Paul also donated Fidget Minis for many of the prize packs.

The Cider and beer were lovingly made and supplied by Tarron and Aidan from Bathroom Brothers Brewing.  We know these were well received because they were all gone by the end of the weekend.  Thank you Tarron and Aidan.

Wow!  What a weekend.  Perfect disc golfing weather and some hot competition in all divisions of the 2018 Victorian Disc Golf Open.

We had a total of 74 players complete at least 1 round of the event, with 64 of those playing all three rounds (in addition, the three juniors were only required to play 2 rounds).

Scoring was excellent with multiple 1000+ rated rounds being booked by the top players along with 7 eagles being thrown, all by different people.

After a very tight tussle, Patrick (Patty) Robinson edged Simon Feasey by just one stroke for the Men’s Open title, followed closely by Jarrath Sweetten and Christopher Finn.
