How to play Disc Golf
- Disc Golf is played like traditional “ball” golf, but with discs instead of balls and clubs. One point (stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The goal is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins.
- Each hole begins with a tee throw. Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area. The lie is the spot where the player’s previous throw has landed. The player’s next throw is made from directly behind the marked lie.
- The player with the least amount of strokes on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole. After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first.
- A disc that comes to rest in the basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole.
- A throw that lands out of bounds, must be played from 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. See map for out of bounds areas.
