I just wanted to share a super informative yet probably boring post for most of you about the specific rules of disc golf. I don’t want to overwhelm any new players but it can make a huge difference to your game and strategy if you know the rules of the sport. I am a bit of a stickler to the rules but for any newbies who play with me of course I’m very lenient (to a certain extent!) and will try to help them out but keep it fun! If you enjoy what you do, you’re going to love doing it and try to do it as often as possible! Last time it absolutely poured down on me so next time I;ll be taking my golf umbrella, where did I buy it I hear you ask? I read through golf umbrellas on the Golf Accessories Reviews site and made my purchase! Definitely worth checking out.
Rules of Disc Golf
- Leave no trace, please don’t litter in the parks.
- Each throw counts as a stroke, just like golf.
- The winner is the player with the lowest score at the end.
- Tee throws must be completed within the designated tee areas.
- After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the basket always throws first.
- Never throw until the players ahead of you are out of range.
- The player with the least amount of throws on the previous hole is the first to tee-off on the next hole.
- Golf is a game on honor and etiquette.
- Any throws after the tee shot must be made with one foot on the spot where the last throw came to rest.
- Your other foot cannot be any closer to the hole.
- Inside 10 meters, “Falling” or “jumping putts” are not allowed meaning you can’t move or fall with your body.
- A disc that comes to rest on top of our outside of the basket do NOT count as completion of the hole.
- Any throws that land out of bounds such as in a water hazards, roads, over fences etc must be played from where the disc was last in the playing area.
- Be courteous of other players- just like in the game of golf.
- Try to stay out of the line of sight while other players take their turns.
Where I Buy Golf Disc Accessories
You don’t need anything fancy to play the game of disc golf but there are a few things I consider crucial. Obviously a good disc or a couple of discs depending on the type of park, how you throw and your style. The other things you may need include, shoes, a glove and a bag to carry everything in! So where to find the best value for money products? I only ever trust and use the reviews at Golf Accessories Reviews and highly recommend you check them out as well. A traditional golf site, they also have reviews for just about everything you can imagine.
I didn’t include it in the list of rules but I think the most important rule is to have fun!! Being outside in a park, surrounded by nature and either alone or with a group of friends can be an incredibly fun time! If you aren’t having fun then perhaps you’re taking things a little too seriously!
