CDGC hosted the 10th Anniversary edition of the Croydon Cyclone on the weekend of 16/17 Sept 2017. We called it the Xyclone and it was a great event.
A Tale of Two Holes:
A Viking Invasion of The Croydon Cyclone
by Bogi Bjarnason
- It was the best of putts, it was the worst of putts. Shorn of upshots, robbed of hole-outs, I tremble in silence and roar in righteous outrage. The Cyclone become center chains to choking on bile, and a run of chastity belts into the distant oblivion.
Hole 10 is a birdie-like gift wrapped in a snare wrought out of feathers plucked of off the clipped wings on the Lloyd Park parrots. The same godforsaken birds that haunt my dreams at night like a shrill reminder of park jobs wasted and a shrieking foreboding of the useless PJs to come.

In 2005 by a few workmates and I, who had been playing disc golf for just a few months using a target course at Lloyd Park, formed Croydon Disc Golf Club. Seven of us sat in the pub for half an hour setting up an official club structure - electing a committee and committing a constitution to paper. Once done, we had a beverage or two and put together a wish list for the club. Another 5 hours later we had a whole raft of ideas that at the time seemed ludicrous!Add a comment
It´s now already one week ago that Rich Wood asked me after the London Calling to write a small "your point of view“ about the past British Open in Croydon for the BDGA Newsletter.Add a comment
