What is Disc Golf?
Disc Golf is a leisurely game that people of all ages can plays whilst enjoying the outdoors. Disc Golf is played with similar rules to traditional golf, except instead of hitting a ball with a club, players throw a frisbee shaped disc from a tee pad to an elevated metal basket to complete each hole.
The aim of the game is to complete the course in the least number of throws. This game is super easy for anyone of any age to learn, while still providing a challenge to master your throws.

Rules of the Game
Tee Throws. Each hole begins with a throw from the tee pad.
Lie. The lie is where the disc comes to rest. Subsequent throws are made from the lie.
Throwing Order. The player with the lowest score on the previous hole throws first. After teeing off, the player whose lie is the furthest from the basket throws first.
Fairway Throws. Must be made from the lie. A run-up and follow through is permitted.
Putting. Within ten metres of the basket, a player is required to remain behind the lie until the disc comes to rest.
Completion of Hole. A hole is complete when the disc comes to rest in the basket or chains.
Trees. If the disc comes to rest in a tree, the next throw is taken from underneath with no penalty.
Out of bounds. A disc is out-of-bounds (OB) when it is completely surrounded by the OB areas as marked on the tee sign. A one-stroke penalty is added to the score and the next throw is taken from the point where the disc went OB. All roads, fences, paths and wetlands are out of bounds.
