What is Disc Golf?
The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc. Each consecutive throw is made from where the came to rest after the throw. The score is determined by counting the number of throws made on each hole, plus penalty throws, and then summing all holes. The winner is the player who completes the course with the lowest score.
Disc golf is a game that expects high standards of etiquette and courtesy. Among the basic considerations of etiquette are such things as concern for spectators and other players and respect for plant life on the course. These rules have been designed to promote fair play for all disc golfers.
Rules of Play
The game of disc golf consists of throwing a flying disc from the teeing area to a target by a throw or successive throws. The competitor who plays the stipulated round or rounds in the fewest throws plus penalty throws is the winner.
A player who throws a practice throw or extra throw with any disc any time after the start of his or her round and prior to his or her finishing the last hole of the round (except for throws that must be re-thrown in accordance with the rules, provisional throws made pursuant to 803.00 C (3) or throws during a suspension or postponement of play) shall receive one penalty throw. The practice throw or extra throw must be observed by any two players or an official.
Play shall begin on each hole with the player throwing from within the teeing area. When the disc is released, at least one of the player’s supporting points must be in contact with the surface of the teeing area, and all the player’s supporting points must be within the teeing area. If a tee pad is provided, all supporting points must be on the pad at the time of release, unless the director has specified a modified teeing area for safety reasons. If no tee pad is provided, all supporting points at the time of release must be within an area encompassed by the front line of the teeing area and two lines perpendicular to and extending back three meters from each end of the front line. Running up from behind the teeing area before the disc is released is permitted. Following through in front of the teeing area is permitted provided there is no supporting point contact outside the teeing area when the disc is released.
A player shall receive one penalty throw, without warning, for violation of obstacle or relief rule. A player who consciously damages anything on the course shall receive two penalty throws, without warning, if observed by two or more players of the group or an official.
