Disc Golf Rules for Buckskill Meadow Preserve
How to Play Disc Golf
Disc Golf is played like regular golf, but you are using a disc. One stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown. Player with the least number of throws after completing the course wins.
Play Smart - Never throw when other park users are within range.
Disc Golf Terms
TEE-OFF - Tee throws must be completed within 8 feet from behind the designated (numbered) rock for each hole.
LIE - Where a throw comes to rest. If your disc comes to rest in a tree or a bush, the LIE is the spot on the ground directly below and there is no penalty. Please take care to avoid vegetation damage.
FAIRWAY THROW - A run-up and follow through are allowed outside of the PUTTING AREA, but the disc must be released before stepping past the LIE.
PUTTING AREA - Within 10 meters (32' 10") of the basket.
PUTT - A throw from within the PUTTING AREA. When putting, you may not step past your LIE before establishing a balance. The hole is completed when the disc comes to rest in the basket or chains.
OUT-OF-BOUNDS – Any asphalted or cemented surface (driveway, parking lot, walking trail, chess table area, etc.): Add a 1-throw penalty and play from the LIE of the last-in-bounds location or retee.
