Disc Golf Rules
Competition will be in men’s and women’s divisions in 5-year age groups (50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80-84, 85-89, 90-94, 95-99, 100+). The participants should provide their own discs (some will be available to borrow).

A) General

  • The tournament will consist of one 9-hole round, with the lowest scores determining the winners. The disc golf rules will be followed (see below).
  • The course will be played in foursomes, whenever possible.
  • Individual score cards will be kept by a member of the foursome or group other than by each individual player.
  • Once the score card is recorded after each hole, it must be initialed by the player, not the scorer.
  • Lowest scores will determine the winners.
  • Tiebreakers will be determined by a putting challenge, located near the first hole.
  • Spectators are not permitted on the course during play.

Basic Rules of Disc Golf

Safety First

Never throw when other players or people are within range. Always give non-players 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 (concrete pads at Bluemont).

Throwing Order

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

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 metres of the target. Any shot within 10 metres of the target requires that the player not move past the lie until the disc is at rest.

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, relocated to avoid damage to the vegetation.

Out Of Bounds

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 1 metre in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds. At Bluemont water hazards and the hiking trail are considered out of bounds.

Completion Of Hole

A disc that comes to rest in the basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole. On top of the basket is not in the hole.

Illegal Discs

Frisbees and damaged or altered discs cannot be used for the tournament.

 Course Courtesy

  • Remain quiet and avoid unnecessary movements while others are throwing.
  • Stand behind the player who is throwing until throw is complete.
  • Help new players learn the rules.
  • Do not alter the course (trees, bushes, etc.) in any way.
