Wham-O supports first UK Frisbee Golf course

Published on: 8th February 2012

The UK’s first Frisbee golf course at historic Welsh mansion, Plas Newydd, opens this weekend with a tournament.

This is the first time Wham-O has lent its support for a British course at the National Trust owned property. Previous courses have been built in Britain but were called Disc Golf because they were not recognised by the makers.

“The people at Wham-O were so excited about the prospect of a Frisbee golf course at Plas Newydd that they asked to be involved,” said Paul O’Byrne, Plas Newydd’s head gardener and course designer. He adds: “It’s a great game, because even though it does require a fair amount of skill, the whole family can play. It’s also really easy to pick up and gets everyone outside and ready to play and explore.”

Frisbee Golf works the same way as conventional golf with 9 or 18 holes of varying difficulty, but instead of clubs and a ball, players use Frisbees and baskets. Plas Newydd has been built with specialist basket, obstacle course and play area.

Alex Kovacevic, brand manager, Wham-O Europe comments: “We are delighted to team up with the National Trust to support the launch of the UK’s first Frisbee golf course at the Plas Newydd on Anglesey. Frisbee golf is a fantastic game for the whole family and we are certain the attraction will be extremely popular. We have more good news to share with Frisbee fans. For the first time in several years, the authentic Wham-O Frisbee is returning to the UK and fans will be able to buy them from next month, so Frisbee golf fans can get a real Frisbee and continue to perfect their throw at home.”
