Background

In the 2019/20 budget, Council allocated $30K for the implementation of a nine hole Disc Golf Course.

A few sites were investigated and assessed for their suitability to accommodate Disc Golf and Warringal Park was identified as the most suitable location.

The proposed course was developed by a professional course designer in consultation with Council. The pathways, topography, vegetation, access from car park and the physical safety of participants and park users were all considered in the design of the course.

We provided information directly to sporting clubs and the broader community who use Warringal Park: through

  • on site signage
  • a letter box drop to surrounding residents inviting them to a Come and Try session in June 2020 (which was cancelled due to COVID-19) and was rescheduled in March 2021
  • Come and Try Sessions to enable people to experience the Disc Golf and find out more about the proposal.

We have heard various concerns about the proposed course and as a result are running a more detailed consultation process before a final decision is made. Council will consider the outcome of this consultation at a Council meeting in the middle of 2021.
