JINDABYNE has a new and unique recreation attraction.

After months of planning, a new Disc Golf course has been opened at the Claypits in Jindabyne.

Disc Golf is a recreation sport that requires players to throw a flying-disc through the air and into a net in the fewest number of turns.

The nine hole course opened on Monday after months of preparation and planning by Rob Kneller Youth Foundation founders, brothers Scott and Luke Kneller.

"Luke and I wanted to build a sustainable project that could offer the local community a recreational activity for all ages," Scott Kneller said.

"We wanted to ensure that the park wasn't changed too much and we didn't want to use cement, so we made sure the nets were installed with ground screws from a company in Sydney, so that the course was as sustainable as possible,"

The new Disc Golf course in Jindabyne will see players throw between holes ranging from 50 to 85 metres in length.

"I've played disc golf a few times in New Zealand and Whistler, so I thought it would be a perfect recreation activity for Jindabyne as the regular golf course is closed. This new course will hopefully get people of all ages and skill level out and active," Kneller said.

Jindabyne Disc Golf course is free to play on, with discs available for purchase at the One Piece store in old Jindabyne town centre.

Twenty per cent of disc proceeds will be donated to the Rob Kneller Youth Foundation.
