Disc Golf Course
Disc golf is similar to traditional golf but it uses a flying disc instead of a ball and club. It is a growing sport, and is also known as Frisbee® golf.
Spruce Grove’s nine-hole disc golf course is located in Jubilee Park.
Rules and safety
Object of the game
- To play each hole in the fewest throws (strokes) possible.
- The player with the lowest total strokes for the course wins.
- Golf discs can cause serious injury.
- 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.
Guidelines for play
- Each hole begins at the tee.
- Subsequent throws are made from the place where the disc comes to rest (the Lie).
- The player who is farthest from the target throws first.
- The hole is completed when the disc is supported by the target’s basket or chains.
- Tee off order is determined by players’ scores on the previous hole. Lowest score tees first.
Basic rules of play
- A player must have a supporting point behind his lie and be in line with the target when the disc is released.
- A run up and follow through are allowed unless the lie is within 10 metres of the target.
- Any shot within 10 metres (32 feet, 10 inches) of the target is considered a putt, and players may not step past the lie as part of their follow through.
- Casual relief should be taken from an unsafe lie.
Courtesy and etiquette
- Remain quiet and avoid unnecessary movements when others are throwing.
- Stand behind the player who is throwing until throw is complete.
- Remove disc from target after completing the hole.
- Allow faster groups to play through when possible.
- Respect the course – put trash in proper receptacles; do not alter trees or obstacles.
- Vandalizing targets, signs, park equipment, and landscaping is a serious offense that will be prosecuted.
