Disc Golf, also known as Frisbee Golf, is an outdoor, fun and free activity offered right here in Manningham. Similar to traditional golf, disc golf involves participants throwing a disc into an elevated metal basket in the least amount of throws. Ruffey Lake Park is home to disc golf in Manningham and the course can be accessed with no booking required. The trees and change in terrain throughout provide a mix of obstacles and a challenge for players. The best thing about disc golf is it’s free and suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
Looking to give it a try? All you need to do is grab your photo ID and head down to the Doncaster Library. There you can borrow discs for free and get started– it’s that simple. You can borrow the discs for up to three weeks at a time and return them through the afterhours chute if the library is closed when you want to return them.
Grab a couple of your mates and head down to Ruffey Lake. To find the first tee and baskets, enter via Church Road North and you’ll find the start of the course near the picnic and playground area.
