The proposed course has been professionally designed by one of Australia's most experienced disc golf designers, responsible for over 40 courses across the country. The pathways, topography, vegetation, access from car park and park users are all factors considered.
Disc golf does not need an area of its own and has been designed to co-exist with other activities and park users. Warringal Parkland will remain a shared public open space for all to enjoy, with users expected to respect the activities of others within the park.
In planning the course and progressing the design to this stage, we visited other courses and also considered the expertise of different teams across Council including Leisure, Open Space, Parks, Tree Care, Bushland, Risk, Property and Local Laws.
No tree removal is involved as the designers worked with the Tree Care and Bushland teams to consider the environmental impacts and also consulted the Warringal Conservation Society community group. The installation of tee pads and baskets for the course will be overseen by a Council arborist to ensure the protection of tree roots.
