​SHORTENED RULES OF DISC GOLF

  1. Tee throws must be completed behind the end of the artificial turf tee area

  2. The lie is the spot where the previous throw landed. Mark your lie with a mini before picking up your disc. The next shot must be made directly behind the marked lie although players can stretch out sideways to get a better shot to the hole. When stretching sideways you cannot place your foot closer to the hole then your foot behind the lie.

  3. A run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed, unless the lie is within 10 m (33ft) of the target. Any shot within 10 m (33ft) of the target is considered a putt and requires that the player maintain balance and not move past the lie until the disc comes to rest.

  4. The player with the least amount of strokes on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole(honours). After all players have teed off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first.

  5. A mandatory, or mando, is one or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed to the correct side as indicated by an arrow. If the disc passes to the wrong side of a mandatory, either rethrow from the previous lie and add a penalty or throw backwards to go around the mando the correct way. 

  6. Penalties occur if a disc lands in water or is Out of Bounds (O.B.) as indicated on the sign at the beginning of each hole . A disc is considered in bounds so long as any part of the disc is in bounds. For creeks, the waters edge is the O.B. line. A throw that lands O.B. must be played from a point up to 1 meter in bounds from where the disc crossed over the O.B. line. 

  7. Damaging or removing  trees or branches is a a penalty. Moving loose ground debris to improve your footing is not a penalty.
