Lismore Park Disc Golf Course
Frisbee magic under the gaze of snow-clad alps
Wanaka is a town in New Zealand's South Island in the Otago region with a great history around gold mining and - of course - sheep.
As a growing resort town, Wanaka offers visitors many outdoor opportunities. And now disc golf is one of those options!
The Lismore Park Disc Golf course is situated above Lake Wanaka on a Terminal Moraine.
Although over half the holes on the course are unobstructed by trees, the undulations of the parks surface significantly changes how the holes are played.
Each hole has a unique placement that highlights the parks diversity. A third of the course is in the trees and although the distances may be short the hole placements are more difficult.
On a calm day the course seems quite relaxing and the views are incredible. If you happen to play Lismore Park on a windy day even scoring par on a seemingly short hole can be a challenge.
The course has 18 baskets and is well worth a stop if you find yourself in the area.
The fine lads behind the course have created a Facebook page, head to http://www.facebook.com/DiscGolfWanaka for updates and calls for rounds.
From above - we have some courses in New Zealand with amazing views and now Wanaka's Lismoire Park is another!.
Hole 1 - All weather tee pads have been installed, ensuring the course will be up to grade all throughout the southern year.
Take it all in - spectacular views are all around you on this beautiful course.
