Disc Golf

Disc Golf at Koala Park

If you're keen to try something different, why not head to Koala Park, San Remo, and try the new Disc Golf course.

Nine chain wire baskets have been installed adding to the range of recreation options available at the reserve.
 
Disc golf shares the same joys and frustrations of traditional golf, whether it’s sinking a long putt or hitting a tree halfway down the fairway.  

Council is looking into having discs available locally, in the meantime you can talk to NSW Disc Golf who have a wide group of people available to assist you in getting the right equipment: http://www.nswdiscgolf.com

What is Disc Golf?

Disc golf is played much like traditional golf - instead of a ball and clubs, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee.

The sport was formalized in the 1970’s and today enjoys a huge following around the world!
 

How to Play


 

Disc Golf shares a scoring system with traditional golf-  Competitors aim to complete each course (hole) with the lowest number of throws (strokes)

Much like traditional golf, players start from a tee area and throw towards a chain wire basket "hole". 

After teeing off, each progressive throw must be taken from the landing spot of the previous throw.
 
The trees, shrubs, and varied terrain in and around Koala Park provide challenging obstacles for all disc golfers as they move through the course fairways.
 
Once close enough, players aim to "putt" the disc into the chain basket, finishing the hole.
