Rules for Recreational Play

GENERAL: Disc golf is played like ball golf using a flying disc. The object is to have fun playing the course from beginning to end in the fewest throws.

TEE OFF: Tee throws must be released from the tee pad.

LIE: The spot where the disc lands.

THROWING ORDER: After the tee-off, the player whose lie is the farthest from the basket throws first. The player with the lowest score on the previous hole is the first to tee-off on the next hole. It is NOT necessary to start at Hole #1, but all players are asked to be respectful of play-throughs.

FAIRWAY THROWS: Fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the basket on the lie. The other foot may be no closer to the basket than the lie. A run-up and follow through is permitted.

COMPLETION OF HOLE: A hole is complete when the disc is in the basket.

OUT OF BOUNDS: A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from the point where the disc went out (1 throw penalty).

COURSE COURTESY: Do not throw until the players or park users are out of range! Please provide for courteous Play Throughs.
