Gold Coast,  Australia


I first came across disc golf in Sweden while travelling and in 2012 i started playing after finding some courses locally. Since then i have played over 60 competitions all over the world. After playing for 1 year i moved to the OPEN division and battled up from there, i have started 2 annual competitions, one of which has gained a huge amount of support from across Australia and New Zealand.

Favourite Courses

In Australia, North Byron Parklands in Byron Bay, Poimena Reserve in Tasmania, Mundaring in Perth and Western Park in Canberra ACT.

Outside of Australia, Lauste in Turku Finland has been may favourite course for a long time. Jablines in France, Croydon in the UK and Big Blue Valley in Kansas City USA.
