British Open - Any More Entrants or Sponsors??

31st British Open 2009

After some frantic activity last week, the new Quarry Park website went live late on Friday. The site incorporates the web pages and registration for the 31st British Open to be held on 11-12th July, 2009. It's part of the European Tour and we expect at least 10 countries to be represented. Should be great, all PDGA members welcome to come and play one of the oldest and most prestigious tournaments around.

Update on 30th British Open

Wolseley PLC have confirmed as sponsors of the 30th British Open, so we should have around €2000 or $3000 prize money. There's still time to enter, but with 59 people registered to play, you better hurry to grab a spot. Course preparations are coming on well, and we now have 4m x 2m artificial grass tees for all long tee positions. (that's about 13 feet by 6.5 feet)
Fundraiser discs have arrived and look sweeeet! Visit www.quarrypark.co.uk/open.htm for more details.

Disc Golf for Poland?

This morning I hosted a visit from 17 rural development delgates from Poland. They played 12 holes, asked loads of questions, took loads of photos and video and liked what they saw. Seems like they are interested in installing a course, because they asked if I would come to Poland when they opened it. Fingers crossed!
