Come and let spin on Baw Baw's 9-hole Disc Golf Course! We'll be launching our Disc Golf season on our Summer of Sports launch day in December 22nd, 2018.
Disk Golf is played in a similar way to traditional golf; however, instead of using golf clubs and golf balls, you will use a disc similar to a frisbee and instead of the traditional hole on the green, in disc golf you aim to land your disc in an elevated framed metal catching basket.
Consisting of a 9 hole course that showcases some of the most amazing views and natural beauty that the Mount Baw Baw Alpine Village has to offer. The first tee off is at the Village Central Restaurant where you will throw out towards an unforgettable view of the mountain landscape reaching across Gippsland, all the way to Bass straight on a clear day. Hole 2, 3 and 4 will take you around the resort into the central winter ski area. The 5th, 6th and 7th will test your fitness taking you on a climb up to enjoy some more breathtaking views. From here, you will descend to finish below the Alpine Hotel, not far from the original tee off. All holes contain course maps and directional signage.
Mount Baw Baw disc golf is free. Score cards are available at Guest Services. You will be required to pay a $20 deposit per disc which will be returned to you when each disc is returned.
You may register at the Guest Services / Village Store building. For large groups or schools we advise you to book in advance by calling the Baw Baw Guest Information center on (03) 51651136 or emailing us on email@example.com.
