Wanaka is a slightly different course, as it is built in a very open terrain. Most of the 18 holes meander up and down the hills, with a few located in a small wooded area at the back of the park.
Even if the holes are very open, are they quite hard to determine the length of, which gives some challenges. When we played the course, there was a strong wind, which also increased difficulty.
Tees are made with tiles with hole number on them. There is no length specification in the holes. There are 18 metal baskets, where the path to the next tee is marked.
Once you have found the first tee, the track is reasonable to navigate, but it could be nice with an info sign on the course.
All in all a good little different course, which lie almost in centrum of the city.
+ Disc can be purchased in several places in town
- Lack of info sign and overview map
- Some short holes
I went 50 on the course

On the peninsula queens gardens, is one of the perhaps best situated disc golf courses. In a mixture of park and woodland overlooking Queenstown center and the stunning surroundings. There are 18 holes with baskets and one tee for each, made with tiles and have lengths and descriptions on small wooden poles.
There were many people in the park. When it is a public park it can probably provide some challenges a hot summer day. The course seems to be used frequently by both locals and other guests in town, I've certainly never seen so many shops sell and rent discs.
The course itself is a fine blend of park and woodland holes, however, it is a little to the short side. Unfortunately there are too many holes 40-45 meters due to the space in the park. All in all a good little course, if you have time for all the other activities in queenstown.
+ Good descrption and overview map
+ Widely used by players
+ Disc is available everywhere in the city
- Many short holes
- Seems that there may be many other guests in the park
I went 47 on the course

Banen i Ørsted er en af de få skovbaner i Danmark. Banen har 8 kurve hvor den ene bruges til både hul 2 og 9. Der er to tee-steder til hver kurv, dog kunne man godt ønske et der var et tredie længere tee-sted eller at de nuværende var trukket lidt tilbage, det ville banen ikke lide af og der vil stadig være plads til nye spillere, desuden er der meget lidt plads på tee-stederne.
Der er dog nogle interessante huller, bland andet hul 6 som er et blindt anhyzer hul, hvor kurven står skjult til højre og ikke kan ses fra det længste tee-sted. Banen vil nok også vinde lidt i sværhedsgrad, når der kommer blade på træerne.
Den lille bane ligger i området kaldet Bakkerne, et skov område lidt uden for byen. Hos den lokale Spar købmand kan man få banekort og låne discs.
Alt i alt en fin lille bane som bestemt er et besøg værd med familien eller vis man skal slå en time ihjel inden færgen.
+ Anderledes bane her hjemme
+ Flere tee-steder
+ Bliver nok lidt sværere med blade på træerne
- Ingen længde angivelser
- Kort bane
- Meget små og ujævne tee-steder
