Objective of the Game
Disc Golf is played like traditional “ball” golf, but with flying discs

disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The goal is to play each
hole in the fewest strokes possible. The player with the lowest total
strokes for the entire course wins.
Each hole begins with a tee throw. Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.
The lie is the spot where the player’s previous throw has landed. Mark
lie with a mini disc or turn over the thrown disc, directly towards the

directly behind the marked lie.
The player with the least amount of strokes on the previous hole is the
first to tee off on the next hole. After teeing off, the player whose
disc is farthest from the hole always throws first.
Fairway throws must be made from directly behind the lie. A run-up and
normal follow-through, after release, is allowed, unless the lie is
within 10 meters of the target. Any shot within 10 meters of the target
