Weston Park now has a permanent course! Leading up to The Choices Flooring 2018 Australian Disc Golf Championships Presented By Nature 2 Nourish, many of the poles were permanently installed and there is now a permanent 21 basket layout to be played! All tees are denoted by orange plastic markers that are in the ground for every hole on the course. Holes 4 through 24 have full baskets installed and it is recommended to just play these. Holes 2 and 3 have poles only. Holes 1, 25, 26, and 27 do not have the basket locations marked. If you’ve played the tournament course before, you’ll note that Hole 12 has been shortened into a Par 4 for the public layout which plays great and makes the transition better to 13.
Note that the Weston Park course is a tournament level layout which requires long throws on most holes. If you’re new to the sport, we would HIGHLY recommend first playing our beginner friendly John Knight Memorial course followed by Eddison Park which is more moderate. If you start right at Weston, you might not have very much fun.
The Weston Park course can be hard to navigate for first time players as there are only two simple orange round tee markers denoting the front left and front right corner of the tee. While the below map might get you around, we highly recommend players new to the course use the google maps link below on your smart phone, turn on your gps, and you’ll be able to navigate pretty close to each tee location. We are working on trying to self-fund tee signs which would make the course much more friendly to play. The Weston baskets were actually partially funded by the club and we’re doing our best as a small club with a limited budget.
Baskets Upgraded – October 2023
Awesome location and a beautifully laid out course with a good mix of challenges. Suited towards more experienced players, but it's not so punishing that a beginner wouldn't enjoy it. Great facilities at the park too.Cons
Public layout is currently only marked with 'ground-markers' (no tee signs), which is a shame for such a quality course in a prime location. Grass tee pads also let it down a little.
Amazing location in parkland adjacent to Lake Burley Griffin. Perfectly complements the other courses in the ACT. Challenging, A-Tier tournament level design with abundant space for future growth.Cons
Grass tee pads, poor signage. Course can be quite exposed to the elements when windy.
One for the more experienced player. Beautiful location and challenging holes.Cons
Tee markers can be very hard to find. It’s not accomodating at all to beginners. If you go through the day on sunny weekends, picnickers and other park users can block parts of the course.
