Disc Golf in New Zealand

Bethells Beach Disc Golf Park, Auckland, New Zealand

A beautiful yet challenging 18 hole course

2016 and another fine Simon Feasey designed course has opened in Auckland continuing the momentum of Disc Golf Courses on Auckland Regional Parks created by the establishment of the Waitawa Disc Golf Course in 2014.

Whilst Waitawa is situated in East Auckland, the Bethells Beach course is located out west in the glorious Waitakere Ranges. Whilst not officially opened yet the baskets and tees are there so you can still play a full round.

This is a park with cattle roaming the paddocks for wear appropriate footwear (ankle support for the rough ground). There are many out-of-bounds and often long grass so it is recommended you have spotters on most holes.

Simon Feasey continues to coordinate this project with Auckland Council, stay tuned for updates.

Bethells Beach Disc Golf Course - 114 Te Henga Road open 7:30 am - 7pm winter, 7:30 am - 9pm summer.

Disc Golf New ZealandThe Course - Simon has created this rough draft - it should be enough for you to find the tees and baskets until full signage is installed.

Disc Golf New ZealandHappy Golfers - Simon and friends were stoked to see the stairway built for them to get down to the first green. What a crazy hole to start with - any deviation short/left or right will mean a long search for your disc. Make it accurate!.

Disc Golf New ZealandNo Need to be Stumped - Most baskets have council-supplied flags on top to help you zero in on your target. Great stuff.
