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.
Cassie Sweetten took out the top Women’s prize. Other winners were Aaron Fain (MA1), Stephen Clarke (MA2), Thomas Duncan (MA4), Bruce McNaughton (MM1), Jeff Brunsting (MG1), Katie Klik (FA4) and Evelyn Heath (FJ2).
Thanks to everyone who played, sponsored or supported the event and to the volunteers from the Melbourne Disc Golf Club who gave up so much of their time to make this such an amazing event happen.
