Melbourne Disc Golf Club
Melbourne Disc Golf Club is managed by a voluntary committee and is made up of annual fee-paying members. Membership is open to all ages and abilities, with current members ranging from 9 – 60 ‘something’.
Whilst some members prefer to simply play socially, in our monthly league days or local events, others tour Australia and even overseas, competing in tournaments. In recent years, members of our club have competed in state championships, National Championships, US Disc Golf Championships and World Championships!
Come and Try Sessions
From 8:30-9:30am & 11:30am-12:30pm on each League Day, community members of all ages and abilities, prospective Club members, and/or new members are welcome to ‘Come and Try’ the sport (completely free of charge) under the guidance of experienced Club members and players, and with equipment loans.
Handicapped League Days
The MDGC holds a monthly handicapped League Day on the third Saturday of every month Feb-Nov from 8:45am (AM Round) & 12 noon (PM Round). League events are generally held at Ruffey Lake Park but the venue does change occasionally. Please refer to our Events Calendar.
Members play for free, and non-members are more than welcome to enter into the competition (first competition round is free!) and can borrow equipment as required. Come along and find out why disc golf is one of the fastest growing sports in the world!
Tournaments and Special Events
MDGC also collaborates with other disc golf clubs to organise and promote special events and tournaments each year. These events include the Victorian Disc Golf Open, Melbourne Cup, The Kingston City Classic, Frost Toss, The Mt Baw Baw Alpine Disc Golf Classic and more. Check out our events calendar for upcoming tournaments and special events.
Tournaments are organised with divisions of play to suit all levels of play including exclusive junior, novice and women’s divisions. Professional men and women disc golfers battle for top position and prize money.
Some of our larger events attract disc golfers and media from interstate and overseas. They are exciting events, whether you are a competitor, volunteer or a spectator in the gallery.
Victorian Members may opt to compete in the Victorian Tour, accumulating points for tournaments played within the state throughout the year.
Australian tour points are also earned by all golfers competing in sanctioned events throughout Australia. In 2020, events are planned for all states and territories. Check out Australian Disc Golf for an up-to-date list of upcoming events and to view the tour leaderboard.
