How to Play
Safety and courtesy
- Always give other park users the right of way
- Never throw when other players or park users are within range
- Respect the course – put rubbish in bins, keep the park tidy and do not damage flora and fauna.
To play you will need a plastic disc or frisbee. Any plastic disc can be used or a Professional golf disc. The golf discs are typically made of polypropylene plastic and can vary in weight from 120to 180grams
Each hole begins with a tee-off throw from the tee pad. After everyone has thrown, the player whose disc is furthest from the basket throws next.
- Next Throw
Wherever your disc lands on the fairway is the spot where you must take your next throw towards the basket. Players may take a run up, but you must throw from behind this spot. A follow through is allowed after you release the disc.
Throws which are less than 10m from the basket require players to stay behind the spot until the disc comes to rest.
- Completion of hole
A hole is completed when your disc comes to rest in the basket catcher or chains. On top of the basket does not count.
- Placing in order
When you start each new hole, the player with the lowest score on the previous hole throws first.
- Out of bounds
A disc is out of bounds (OB) when it is completely surrounded by the OB area as marked on the tee sign. A one-throw penalty is added to the score and the next throw is taken from the point where the disc went OB.
All throws on or over roads and footpaths are out of bounds. If a disc comes to rest in a tree, the next throw is played from underneath with no penalty.
