Have a throw on Melbourne’s beginner friendly disc golf course right in the middle of Caulfield Racecourse.
The 4-basket temporary course has been established to introduce new players to the sport and is perfect for beginners and families, but also intermediate players wishing to test themselves on a tricky layout that often has the wind blowing.
With an excellent central amenities building with free BBQ and toilet facilities, Caulfield Racecourse is the perfect location to introduce friends and family to disc golf and make an outing of it.
The course is open every day of the week from early morning till sunset, apart from horse racing event days.
It’s probably also Melbourne’s most accessible course by public transport.

What You Need To Know
Disc golf is an outdoor recreational activity played with similar rules to traditional golf. You can read about the basic rules and etiquette of disc golf HERE.
The ground is sometimes uneven and can get quite wet, so proper footwear and sporting attire is recommended.
Remember, NEVER throw if there is any chance you could hit someone else in the park or on the sporting fields. Other sporting facility users ALWAYS have the right of way. If there is a cricket or football game on the main oval adjust your approach to the basket/s so that you do not encroach on the field of play.
The course is maintained by the Caulfield Racecourse Trust. The course is well maintained and due to its sandy base remains in great condition even after significant rain. Please respect all fixed fencing that is close to the course and in some cases defines out of bounds.
