Melbourne Disc Golf’s home turf, Ruffey Lake Park, is an amazingly large area of public parkland in the heart of a dense Melbourne suburb.
In 2012 Manningham City Council installed a permanent 6 basket course, complete with tee signs. Early in 2016, the Council installed three new baskets, and in addition the Melbourne Disc Golf Club (MDGC) installed tees for these baskets along with alternate tees to make an 18-hole course.
We suggest players download these maps to their portable device before playing to find your way around the course.
Original 6-hole Course Map (Par 3): Ruffey Lake Park Map
18-Hole Course Map (Par 3 except Hole 11 & 16 Par 4): Ruffey Lake 18-hole Course.
All tees are marked by 10cm diameter ground-level discs (black number on yellow paint).
If you are interested in playing one of the longer or alternate layouts then we strongly recommend coming along to one of the MDGC League Days.
Contact and Disc Hire
You can check out discs out at the Doncaster branch of the Whitehorse Manningham Regional Library Corporation just like a book. How cool is that! You can view frisbee availability via their online library catalogue. Simply take along a piece of photo identification with a current address, and they will sign you up for a library account (regardless of which municipality you live in) and you can then loan your discs.
The course is best accessed by the carpark at the end of Church Rd off of King St. (Melways 33 H9)
Note: No access to Church Rd Carpark via George St.
