Licola Wilderness Village Disc Golf Park

Project Description

Recreation Activity Design Licola Wilderness VillageIn November 2012 the DiscGolfPark team made a trip high into the Victorian Alps to design a beginner friendly, permanent 9-hole disc golf course at the Licola Wilderness Village. Licola DiscGolfPark is situated on the beautiful McAllister River, 254 kms from Melbourne. Licola is owned by the Lions Club and welcomes school groups, community groups, tourists, and hosts weddings and other functions. DiscGolfPark designed an easy to learn but difficult to master 9-hole course at Licola that winds players through every corner of the facility, past many of the other activities including the flying fox, rock wall, and volleyball court. We provided 9 Pro DisCatchers as well as 9 TeeSigns and an InfoBoard for the Par 28, 705m course. The InfoBoard not only details the disc golf course but also doubles as a village map for all visitors. Adam and the rest of the team at Licola are very enthusiastic about disc golf, and most school groups that visit Licola are now playing disc golf as one of their activities. Although in a secluded area, the Licola course is teaching heaps of kids about disc golf and will be instrumental to the further development of the sport throughout Victoria.
