Bald Hill Park, Clarinda
Entry via North-East end of Inverness Street
Bald Hill Disc Golf is a 9 basket, 18 tee course located just south of Melbourne city in Clarinda. It is a fantastic facility complete with full course signage, concrete tee pads and RAD baskets. It even has a practice basket area with a dedicated ‘how to play’ sign for those new to the sport.
The Kingston City Council is currently working on making discs available for loan.
This is still a work in progress – keep an eye out on this page for further updates!
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.

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 – any resident of Victoria may obtain library membership.
The course is best accessed by the carpark at the end of Church Rd off of King St. (Melways 33 H9) This is the north side of the park.
Note: There is no access to the Church Rd Carpark via George St (from the south side of the park).
Ruffey Lake Park is serviced by several bus routes including 279 (all hours) and 908 (peak-hours to and from the city, off-peak to and from Doncaster park-and-Ride) with the best stops being on King St close to the corner of Church Rd. To the east of the course, the 295 and 318 will stop on Victoria St – ask for the Victoria St Playground (it’s the only stop on Victoria between King and George). Note that the 305 stops at the corner of George and Church, but is a purely a peak-hour service, only running to the city in the mornings and outbound in the afternoons.
Please note that Ruffey Lake Park is quite large, please be sure to check walking directions from your bus stop to the course before departing.
