Sydney’s Newington Armory is a historical war site that is now a part of the Sydney Olympic Park Complex. It was originally used as a bomb storage facility and ship loading capabilities for HMAS ships into Sydney.
The Armory Disc Golf course was established in 2006 and has been Sydney’s primary permanent course ever since. Originally there were 9 baskets, however in 2014 it was upgraded to 18 permanent baskets.
Access to the Armory is limited as it is only open to the Public on weekends and school holidays. To find the Disc Golf park there is a short walk from the front gates up the main walkway where you will encounter the tee for hole 1 on your right, as per the map above.
There is also a very large children’s play area just outside the Armory that means parking is hard to come by. Multiple types of Public transport are available, for more info check out
Contacting the Sydney disc golf club can enable to you get easier access to the park on weekends and sometimes also access the park during the week. They also meet once a month for their regular league days, which occur on the third Sunday of the month. Leagues are handicapped, meaning it caters to all skill levels and everyone has a chance of winning.
To contact the club, go to the contact us page and select Sydney, or visit the Sydney Disc Golf Club Facebook page.
Sydney Disc Golf Facebook page is where updated events are posted, as well as anyone looking for a local to help show them around.

Sydney's original! Great 18 hole course located near the olympic precinct.Cons
Only open weekends. Parking.
Mostly open fairways, but good use of available elevation Rated 3.0Cons
Turf tees Little signage Only open weekends Parking and access limited - esp if a nice day for DG, as it will be popular for the other attractions nearby
Open course with some height variation.Cons
Probably too open - very few trees to challenge players. This also means little shade - bring lots of sunscreen. Get there early on a pleasant weekend day to beat the playground crowds. as there is limited parking (some of which is also time-limited).
Has improved out of sight since the original 9 baskets went in, expanding to 18 holes and utilising more of the park space available. Some good open shots, fun wooded hole and good use of elevation where possible.Cons
No signage, natural tees that are overworn in some spots. Some holes play over roads/paths so cause delays if park is busy. Too open and recent park "maintenance" has made it more so with SOPA removing more trees without replacement.
Some elevation with a mix of long and short holes.Cons
accessibility and too open
It's an 18 basket course close to the city, rolling hills, city views, and next to no public around.Cons
Wide open for the most part, and access is problematic
Good use of what little trees and elevation are available.Cons
Course is not good for beginners as there is little signage and most holes are very long.
