New disc golf course spins into action in Belconnen
The variety of recreational activities in Canberra continues to grow with the northside now having its own course for disc golf, a game very similar to traditional golf, except instead of hitting a ball with a club into a cup, you throw a plastic disc into a metal basket.
ACT Minister for Sport and Recreation Yvette Berry launched the ACT Disc Golf Club’s new course at John Knight Memorial Park in Belconnen on Tuesday, teeing off with club members.
“This great new course on the northside complements the existing disc golf course at Eddison Park in Woden to bring this easy, fun game to even more Canberrans,” she said.
ACT Disc Golf Club President Todd Nowack said the John Knight Park course was a welcome boost for the club and would attract new players to the sport.
The club’s website says the new course is par 56 with dual tees and dual pin positions making for 36 unique holes to play.
