Assumption of Risk

  • Regardless of the activity, all participants must understand they are assuming risk when they take part in an active recreation program.
  • Each person must be aware of this assumption of risk and recognize that his or her participation is voluntary.
  • Each participant also has a responsibility to use prudent and ordinary care in his or her actions.
  • These risks could include, but are not limited to: muscle cramps, nausea, fainting, abnormal blood pressure, chest discomfort, and even death.
  • Individuals are encouraged to have a physical examination and obtain adequate health and accident insurance prior to participation in any recreational and fitness activities.

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.
