Great course suitable for all abilities. BBQ and toilet facilities located near hole 1. You will get plenty of exercise walking up and down the hills on this course. You can also borrow discs from the local library.Cons
The alternate tee markers can be a little tricky to find (pegs in ground) so make sure you download a map if you plan to play the 9 or 18 hole course. The map at hole one only shows the original six tees.
Good for beginners.Cons
signage needs updating,
Good beginners course. Park has great potential and is a fantastic location for bigger events, using a modified layout.Cons
Quite a busy park. Lots of dog walkers.
Course suitable for beginners and experienced players. Course has elevation changes, which make it more fun.Cons
Map shows 6 baskets, actually there are 9 baskets and 18 teepads. The back 9 tee's are hard to find, you will need the map from their website to find them.
Great public course with full facilities. Holes are beginner-friendly but can still pose a challenge for the better players seeking to go under par.Cons
Others have noted the difficulties in locating tees for the newer holes and also the alternates. the map is available here: http://www.melbournediscgolf.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Ruffey-Lake-18-hole-Course.pdf
Great elevation changes. Suitable for all abilities. 9 baskets with 18 tees.Cons
Signage needs updating and alternate tees can be tricky to find. Some fairways cross paths so be conscious of other park users.
Fun course that remains challenging as you progress.Cons
Some tee pads are a bit rough and as mentioned, the back 9 ground markers are hard to find.
Beginner friendly course with alternate 9 tees that keep the course challenging enough for players of all skill levels. Tournament layout makes use of the amazing elevation changes on offer, making for a much improved experience. Great park facilities near HQ.Cons
Limited parking when park gets busy. Natural tee pads are well worn, some with exposed tree roots.
Good beginner course, has potential to be a 18 basket course.Cons
Natural tee pads need updating along with signage for alternate pads.
It's a great 18, but as a standard 9 it is just OK. Layout seems to revolve around the big layout, if the 9 was the focus it could be a solid 4.Cons
The public on weekends can at times deem it unplayable.

Can be challenging with elevation changed.Cons
Lots of walkers and dogs. Was very muddy when we played. No tee pads, and quite difficult to find. Eclipsed by Bald Hill
Great course with elevation changes and requires a variety of shots, 18 holes. I really like the back 9. In the future, I would love to see more baskets around the water! :) There are toilets, BBQ's, and water. Very green.Cons
No tee pads
