History of the club

Newcastle Disc Golf Club

Springfield Community Association is the proud home of Newcastle Disc Golf Club and boasts a brilliant family friendly disc golf course in Springfield Park,

right next to the community centre, in Forest Hall

The club was founded in 2019 by RickRick & Sam Banner, who were locals to the park. After playing hundreds of social rounds with various people over the years and ultimately hosting an event with the Springfield board members n Co., Disc Golf was adopted as a full time activity at the community centre, collaborating with loads of annual events.

 

The sport has been available, for free, for over 2 years, as we had portable targets and discs for hire. Players could design there own course then just bring back the equipment when they finished having fun. It worked very well, but the intention was to always install a permanent free course in the park.

On Thursday 20th July 2023, Springfield Disc Golf Course was born !

Springfield Park has 4 permanent baskets in the ground, along with a welcome sign/course map on the side of the community centre, next to the "practice basket"

The other 3 holes have tee signs to show you where to throw from, to take you around the 3 hole design. Each hole is a Par 3, meaning 3 throws is the objective. They are all family friendly distances but remember, practice makes perfect.
