The new Eddison Park course is now fully playable. The course has 10 new baskets making for an 18 basket layout and includes a practice basket. This new layout includes turf teepads, marked 10m circles and full signage. The start of the course now plays from the main parking area adjacent to the skatepark although, you can still start from the cemetery parking lot which is now hole 9.
The locally made custom baskets at Eddison park have been in the ground for over 20 years now and were one of the first basket installations in Australia. The park has seen some significant changes over the years including the addition of the skate park, upgraded path networks, fitness equipment installations, and the possible loss of half of the course due to the cemetery expanding. All of these changes have impacted the course into various iterations. After a successful 2019 Capital Assistance Program grant from ACT Sports and Recreation, the ACT Disc Golf Club was able to upgrade the course into a moderate 18 hole layout. The first 8 holes are completely new and the back part of the course contains many of Eddison’s classic holes (Original layout and design by Greg Sparksman) such as 10, 11, 13, 14, 17 & 18 (or modified to play in a similar way).

Great classic course with very solid baskets. Mostly flat with challenging clusters of trees throughout the park.Cons
Hard to navigate. Signage is minimal.
Great layout and great use of the full park. Lots of variety in shots needed and wide range of parsCons
Baskets are older and hand made. No clear signage as to where the tee is or where the next hole is, how long, par etc. Needed to use google maps to find where it was all laid out
Variety of hole lengths and technicality among mature trees. Good use of park, available features and elevation Rated 4.0Cons
Turf tees Older baskets Lack of signage
Good variety of holes requiring a wide array of throws. Beautiful trees!Cons
Rather confusing layout with multiple crossovers. No signage, older baskets. Some holes play over or near other park equipment or over the road leading to other park user safety concerns.
Good holes with a variety of challenges. I feel like this course would really help improve your game.Cons
Layout makes little sense the first few times around. Ground markers and no signage make it harder still. Once you work it out, it's alright.
Good layout, variety of holes, some elevation changesCons
Older baskets but do the job, no tee signs, no real standout hole.
Great variety of throws and holes. A nice all around course to regularly practice on, will improve your game.Cons
Heavy chains on homemade baskets create some extra spitouts, no signage and poorly marked, crossing fairways. Could use a facelift and could be a top caliber course.
Good mix of open and wooded holes.Cons
Hard to find tees. Fairways crossover eachother.
Good variety of holes which requires a good range of different throws.Cons
Nubs on baskets, not many signs which makes it hard to navigate
Great course that has a bit of everything.Cons
More than a few times I’ve seen people wandering around with discs totally unable to follow the course due to a lack of signage. I believe a new course with signage will be going in soon.
New layout & baskets provide a good balance & challenge to all levels
