MUNDARING Sporting Club is aiming to be hailed as the premier disc golf hub in Australia following the launch of its newly designed course signage by Recreational Activity Design, with the club vying to host the World Flying Disc Federation World Team Disc Golf Championships in November next year.
This visual overhaul was prominently showcased over the weekend during the RPM Discs WA Open 2023, an Australian Disc Golf major, that attracted more than 100 professional and amateur disc golfers from across WA, the eastern states, and international locales.
Originally established in 2014, the club’s disc golf course began with 18 baskets and two tee positions per hole on the front nine of the traditional golf course.
Thanks to recent enhancements by club members, and a collaboration with the Shire of Mundaring and Bendigo Bank Mundaring, including the addition of three new baskets and a multitude of new tee positions, the course now boasts a third level of difficulty, effectively accommodating a broader spectrum of skill levels.
The club is also actively engaged in a venture to create a second championship-level course on the back nine in tandem with Recreational Activity Design and again supported by Bendigo Bank Mundaring.
The culmination of this project is timely, with the club gearing up to host prestigious events like the Aussie Open, the World Flying Disc Federation World Team Disc Golf Championships in November 2024, and the Australian Disc Golf Championships in 2025.
“The soon-to-be unveiled championship course, combined with our existing offerings and off-course amenities, positions Mundaring Sporting Club to be hailed as the premier disc golf hub in Australia,” disc golf committee member Jason Browne said.
