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.
