Kiwis who love the sport of disc golf
Wellington is the capital of New Zealand. It offers an unforgettable city experience in a natural setting. It is located between a beautiful harbour and rolling green hills. Wellington has excellent shopping, professional theatre and cafes and restaurants all close to untouched nature spots. Wellington is only two kilometers wide so it can be explored easily on foot.
Te Papa, New Zealand’s national museum is on the waterfront. Walk to Te Papa from a central city restaurant and stop at a local fashion store or an art gallery on the way.
The South Coast is one of Wellington’s most beautiful places. Visit the New Zealand fur seal colony or just watch the waves. Mountainbike through native bush at Makara Peak, or kayak out to Scorching Bay – the choice is yours.

Great use of a small park. The two tees for each basket works real well; pretty much 1 through 9 is quite different from 10 through 18. A great course to introduce someone to the game for the first time. This course is a lot more about placement than length, someone with a medium drive but good accuracy should be able to compete with a long driver.
Special acknowledgement to Mark Dakiv, the fine young Canadian who lived in New Zealand for some time (and travelled back to Canada to take his own National title) and spent many hours lobbying the local council and securing the support of local residents and schools to make this Disc Golf Park a reality. Mark is overseas again along with previous contact for the course Dylan Cooper has been pleased with the new life the sport has enjoyed in our capital lately thanks to an energetic group of regular players. They have doing a sterling job keeping up the profile of the game including the all new course at Hikoikoi Reserve, Petone..
When the NZ Tour comes to Harcourt Park, some of the tee positions are moved back and the course takes on quite a different light.
Many local players enjoy playing the 'Fault Alt' and we can share that course with you via this map (thanks to John Lee).
