Wivenhoe Park joins the likes of Wentworth, Sunningdale and St Andrews in playing host to a major golfing tournament, but this contest won't be using a club and ball.
The University of Essex is playing host to the 2012 European Disc Golf Championships attracting disc golfers from across Europe.
The sport is played with a frisbee rather than traditional golf equipment, but the rules of the sport are effectively the same.
This is the 30th anniversary of the championships and the Wivenhoe Park course was redesigned last year especially for the event which takes place from today until Saturday.
The Championships attract disc golfers from Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.
The University of Essex has hosted seven World and European Disc events since 1982.
