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.

Safety first

  • 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.
