One of Australia’s oldest courses, if not perhaps the oldest. Poimena Reserve Disc Golf Course was installed in 1985. Located in , a small suburb outside of Hobart, it has become a hotspot of activity.

The course is situated in Austins Ferry, Tasmania. A small suburb, 20 minutes drive north of Hobart.

The entrance to the reserve is at the end of Wakehurst Road, off Main Road, Austins Ferry.

The course has undergone a range of upgrades, improvements, and expansions in its lifetime. Initially, it consisted of just 9 baskets, and was on host of the Australian Open taking place each November. In 2007, 9 more holes were added thanks to the hard working Hobart Disc Golf Club to create a well-rounded course totalling 18 baskets. In this most recent configuration, the Australian Championships been held here multiple time, and is now home to the inaugural  Two Heads Disc Golf Open, which is part of the Australian national tour,

    Pros

    One of the best championship level courses in Australia. Hands down. Amazing views from up the top of basket 15. Well designed course and a lot of hard work put into the course by the Hobart crew. A must visit when coming over to Tasmania

    Cons

    The roll aways

    Pros

    Sick course full stop. All the holes beckon you to birdie them, but one wrong move and Poimena punishes bad shots like no other. When you get it right, it's a sweet feeling. The course is also run by some passionate people who are trying new things to make it even better.

    Cons

    Some gravel tees can get sketchy when wet.

    Pros

    Plenty of elevation with lovely views over greater Hobart. Eighteen dedicated holes offering a large array of shot making.

    Cons

    The roll-aways, but i guess that's my fault for missing the putt! Tee-pads weren't the best when i was last there, but they may have improved by now.

    Warm up your ankles, they are in for a workout.
