How Do I Play?
Rules of Disc Golf - A Short Version:

1. Disc golf is played like ball golf, using flying discs. One stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown, and when a penalty is incurred. The winner is the golfer with the lowest score.

2. Tee throws must be completed within the designated tee areas.

3. Order of play - After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the fewest strokes on the previous hole is the first to tee off.

4. Stance - Fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the hole on the spot where the last throw came to rest. The other foot may be not closer to the hole than the foot on this lie.

5. A run-up and normal follow through, after release, are allowed more than 10 meters from the hole. Inside 10 meters, a player may not step past his/her lie. “Falling” or “jumping” putts are not allowed.

6. A disc that comes to rest inside the Disc Pole Hole or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole. A disc that comes to rest on top of the pole hole does NOT constitute a successful putt.

7. A disc that comes rest more than 2 meters above the ground is considered out of bounds. The disc must be thrown from the ground directly below the suspended disc, with a one stroke penalty.

8. A throw that lands out-of-bounds is to be carried in and played from the point where the disc went out-of-bounds, with a one stoke penalty. Alternate recreational rules do not include penalty strokes, but you should still always carry your disc back in bounds and off of roads and sidewalks.

9. Never throw until the players ahead of you are out of range, and until the fairway is completely clear of spectators and park guests.
