Basic Play of Disc Golf
Each hole begins with a tee throw. Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.
The player with the least 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.
Fairway throws must be made from directly behind the lie. A run-up and normal follow-through after release is allowed unless the lie is within 10 meters of the target. Any shot within 10 meters of the target requires that the player not move past the lie until the disc is at rest.
A mandatory is one or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed as indicated by arrows.
Any disc that comes to rest above the ground is considered an unplayable lie. The disc must be thrown from the lie on the ground, directly underneath the unplayable lie, and relocated to avoid damage to the vegetation.
Out Of Bounds
If any area of O.B. is visible between the disc and O.B. line, then the disc is considered O.B. A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from a point 1 meter in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds. Permanent water hazards and public roads are always out of bounds.
Completion Of Hole
A disc that comes to rest in the basket or chains constitutes the successful completion of that hole.
– Remain quiet and avoid unnecessary movements while others are throwing.
– Stand behind the player who is throwing until the throw is complete.
– Help new players learn the rules.
– Allow faster groups to play through when possible.
– Never alter the course (trees, bushes, etc.).
