• DISC GOLF RULES for RECREATIONAL PLAY

     
    GENERAL: Disc Golf is played like ball golf using a flying disc (Firsbee).  One point is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred.  the object is to acquire the lowest score (without cheating).
     
    TEE THROWS: Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated area.  For hole 1, there is a rectangular box located by hole 9, by the modular (Says "Disc Golf Start").  This is where the course begins.  For the rest of the holes, throw from within 5 feet of the previous hole( example: for hole 5, throw from hole 4).  Don't throw until the players in front of you are out of range.
     
    LIE: The spot where the previous throw landed, mark with a mini disc or turn over the thrown disc.
     
    THROWING ORDER: After teeing-off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first.  The player with the least amount of throws on the previous hole is the first to tee-off on the next hole.
     
    FAIRWAY THROWS: Fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the hole on the lie.  The other foot may be no closer to the hole than the lie.  A run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed.
     
    DOG LEG: A dog leg is ont or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed AS INDICATED BY ARROWS.  Until the dog leg is passesd, the closest foot to the dog let must be on the lie when the disc is released.
     
    COMPLETION OF HOLE: A disc that comes to rest in the Disc Pole Hole basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole.
     
    UNPLAYABLE LIE: Any disc that comes to rest above the ground is considered an unplayable lie.  The disc must be thrown from the new lie on the ground, directly underneath the unplayable lie.  (Relocate to avoid damage to vegetation)
     
    OUT OF BOUNDS (O.B.): If O.B. is visible between the disc and O.B. line. A throw that lands out of bounds, must be playedfrom a point 3 feet in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds.  Permanent water hazards and public roads are always out of bounds.  (Parking lot is NOT O.B.)
     
    PENALTIES: Recreational players will not be penalized for rule infractions.  Other players will keep you honest.
     
    COURSE COURTESY: Please pick up trash, help new players play by te rules.  YOU ar the one that makes it work.  By YOUR example, Disc Golf will change Your life and THEIRS too.  Remember, the most important rule: THE MOST FUN WINS.  TEE OFF AND FLY FREELY.
