The Two Heads Open is played at Poimena Reserve Disc Golf Course in Austins Ferry, Tasmania. It is an 18 basket course with two tee positions for every hole (red tees/long and blue tees/short). The baskets on the course are Discology Chaintech Pro – double chains, deep buckets and proven catchers.
Poimena is the oldest disc golf course in Australia (est. 1985) and is regarded as one of the country’s most challenging and beautiful. The course is operated by Glenorchy City Council with help from local volunteer disc golfers. It is open to the public all year round and it’s free to play.
Three-time Mens World Champion, Nate Doss, spent time at Poimena in 2009 and posted on his website that the course was amongst his top 5 favourites!
The 18 basket course is characterised by its elevation changes, bush terrain, sloping greens and stunning vistas over the River Derwent and Mount Wellington.
For the tournament, all players will be throwing from the red tees.
