Disc Golf lands at Curtin University

[Posted: 25 Nov 2015]

Disc Golf

Disc Golf has landed at Curtin University and Curtin is the first university in Australia to introduce the game.

Disc Golf is a hugely popular sport across Europe and the USA and is played in more than 40 countries worldwide.

The sport is played with similar rules to traditional golf, except players throw a disc from a tee pad to an elevated metal basket to complete each hole.

The aim of the game is to complete the course in the least number of throws.

The new 9-hole course is located around Edinburgh Oval South next to Curtin Stadium, Building 111 on Curtin University's Bentley campus.

Bringing the game to campus is part of Curtin University's place activation strategy to create a more lively, vibrant campus for its student, staff and local community.

 Curtin Properties, Facilities and Development Director, Andy Sharp, said disc golf was a great new fun resource for Curtin and he was excited to invite the local community to play all year round.

"Curtin Disc Golf was an idea pitched by local creative team Rubis & Fuel to have course specialists DiscGolfPark Australia install the 9 hole/18 tee course.

The championship course running through and around Curtin's iconic pines also makes for a great walk," he said.

Free scorecards can be collected from Curtin Stadium reception and discs and disc packages will be available to purchase from reception soon.
