Disc Golf Basics


Object of the game: 
  • Disc golf is like golf but instead of hitting a golf ball, you throw a disc. 
  • The goal is to get the disc from the tee pad to the basket in as few strokes as possible. 
  • As you play each hole you keep track of your score, trying to complete the course in as few strokes as possible. 
  • There are four main types of discs: Putter, Midrange, Fairway Driver, and Distance Driver.
  • The rim of discs are shaped in various ways, causing each disc to fly differently. 
Basic Rules:
  • If playing in a group, after teeing off the player farthest away from the basket should throw first. Continue this until each player has finished the hole. 
  • If inside of 10m (33ft), do not step over your lie (or spot where your disc previously landed) before maintaining your balance. 
  • While on the course, be cautious of other groups. Offer to let faster groups play through so they don’t get stuck behind you.
