How to Play


Disc Golf is played like ball golf, but you are using a flying disc. One stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.

  • Tee-off: Tee throws must be completed within/behind designated tee area.
  • Putting: Within 10 meters (32´, 10″) of the target, a player may not step past the point of their lie while putting. Falling or jumping is not permitted.
  • Completion of hole: A disc that comes to rest in the basket/chain, not on top of the target or wedged in the cage, constitutes successful completion of hole.
  • Disc above playing surface: If a disc comes to rest above the playing surface in a tree / other object, its lie shall be marked on the playing surface directly below with no penalty.
  • Out of Bounds: A player whose disc is ruled OB shall receive a one stroke penalty. The player may elect to play the next shot from: (1) The previous lie; or (2) A lie that is up to 1 meter (3´, 3″) from the point where the disc last crossed into OB. This holds true even if the direction takes the lie closer to the hole.
  • Course Courtesy: Do not throw until the players ahead of you have finished the hole. YELL “FORE” immediately if you think your disc might hit someone. Players assume all risks of sport.
  • Additional Considerations: Please keep this course looking nice! Don´t litter. If you see trash, please pick it up.
