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.

Printable Scorecard

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.
Mandos: A Mando is a mandatory shot that counts toward the par, so your disc must fly to the side of whatever obstacle in the direction of the arrow indicator on our map OR be rethrown until it does (or use a stroke if you are just playing casually).
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.
