Want your own discs? The Recreation Pro Shop has you covered there too, selling Disc Golf sets and single discs.
Due to pedestrian traffic near the links, caution while playing is advised.
- Safety First: To minimize the chance of injury and a poor experience for everyone, never throw when players or park users are within range. Always give park users the right of way. Be aware of your surroundings and environment.
- Tee Throws: Each hole begins with a tee throw. Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.
- Throwing Order: The player with the lowest score on a hole is first to tee off on the next hole.
- Fairway Throws: Must be made with either foot no closer to the hole or the lie. A run-up and normal follow-through after release are allowed.
- Putting: Within 30ft, must demonstrate balance with the plant foot.
- Completion: Disc must land in the basket or be suspended in the chains.
- Unplayable Lie: Any disc that comes to rest above the ground is considered an unplayable lie. The disc must be thrown from the lie on the ground, directly underneath the unplayable lie, to avoid damage to the vegetation.
- Out of Bounds: All pavement and sidewalks are considered out of bounds (O.B.). If any area of O.B. is visible between the disc and O.B. line, then the disc is considered O.B. A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from a point 3 feet in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds, with a one-stroke penalty.
- Mando: A disc flying or landing outside of the mandatory out-of-bounds sign must be played from the SHORT tee pad, with a one-stroke penalty.
- Leave it better than you found it: For best experience for everyone, please pick up trash and move loose branches off to the side of the fairway.
- Most Important rule: “The one who has the most fun wins!” “Steady” Ed Headrick
