Disc Golf is played like traditional golf. However, instead of hitting a ball with a club, players throw a disc from the tee pad to a metal basket. The aim of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest throws possible. The player with the lowest score for the course wins.

Tee throw

Each hole begins with a throw from the tee pad.


The spot where the disc lands.

Throwing Order

Lowest score on the previous hole throws first. After the teeing off, the player whose lie is furthest from the basket throws first.

Fairway Throws

Must be made from the lie. A run-up and follow through is permitted.


Within 10 metres of the basket, a player may not step past the lie when attempting to throw.

Completion of Hole

The hole is complete when the disc lands in the basket or chains.

Out of Bounds

A disc is O.B. when it is completely surrounded by the out of bounds area marked on the tee sign (one stroke penalty). The next throw is played from the point where the disc was last in-bounds.

Park Courtesy

Always give other park users the right of way. Respect the course – put rubbish in the bins and keep the park tidy.
