Rules

How to Play Disc Golf

The object of disc golf is to have fun and complete the course in the fewest throws.

  1. Start from the teeing area. The player must throw from behind the front of the teeing area.
  2. Subsequent throws are played from behind the spot where the previous throw came to rest. This spot is known as the “lie.” If your disc comes to rest in a tree or bush, the lie is the spot on the ground directly below.
  3. A run-up and follow through are allowed, but the player must release the disc before stepping past the lie.
  4. A putt is a throw from within 10 meters (32.8 ft.) of the target. When putting, you may not step past your lie before establishing balance.
  5. The hole is completed when the disc comes to rest in the basket or chains. The hole is not completed if the disc is resting on top of the target.
  6. If a throw goes out-of-bounds: play from either the last in-bounds location with 1-throw penalty or retee with 1-throw penalty.
