Here is the fly-through video of the new layout.

Fruit will be available for players to grab before they start their round at tournament central.

Mr. Squidgy will be on site on Sunday & Monday for gourmet Fish and Chips.

Otherwise there is everything you could want within a short 5 min drive down the main street (Sturt St).


We’re excited that Federation Health Sports and Aquatic Centre have again come on board as the Official Accommodation Partner for the Vic Open.


Don’t let your Vic Open experience end each day at the course when you can continue the event back at your shared accommodation.


Federation offers dorms for 10 people. You’ll get your own bedroom, but share the living areas with 9 other disc golfers. Not only that, but you’ll get access to the university gym, indoor basketball courts, as well as the swimming pool!

If that doesn’t already seal the deal, we’ll be running the distance comp under lights at the Uni oval, so you’ll get a front row seat.

But wait, there’s more… we’re going to be setting up a few baskets on location so you can get in all the practice you need at the accommodation.

Cost for a 10 person dorm is $690 a night ($69 each).
Or you can book as an individual for $85 a night.

What are you waiting for? Get the crew together and book now!
To book, simply call Federation on 5327 9480.
