BASIC DISC GOLF COURSE RULES

General- Disc golf is played like ball golf using a flying disc. One throw is counted for each release of the disc and for a penalty. The object is to complete the course with the lowest score.

Tee Throws- Tee throws must be completed within the tee box.

Lie- The point at where the previous shot came to rest is the lie fer the next throw.

Throwing Order- After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the fewest throws on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole.

Fairway Throws- Throws on the fairway 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 follow through after release is allowed..

Putt Throw- Within 10 meters of the hole, a player may not step past the point of the lie while putting. No falling or jumping putts allowed.

Completion of Hole- A disc that hits the upper painted portion of the hole, including the red bands, completes the hole.

Above Ground Lie- Any disc that comes to rest more than 2 meters above the ground must be brought down to play with a one-throw penalty. Lower above ground lies are brought down with no penalty.

Unplayable Lie- A disc may be declared unplayable and moved to the closest playable ground, no closer to the hole with a one-throw penalty.

Out-Of-Bounds- A disc that comes to rest completely in an out of bounds area must be played from the point at which it was last over legal ground with a one-throw penalty.

Course Courtesy- Don't throw until the players ahead and other people are out of range. Don't littter. Pick some up.
