Scorecard – intended to mark players and their performance. In competitions scorecard is as a confirming document. We are offering everyone to use electronic scorecard (DISC CADDY or UDISC) ​​on your mobile phones.


Scoring – Each throw counts as one point. The object is to acquire the lowest total score. Each hole has a par score, the number of throws expected to get the disc in the basket. Most courses will have par 3 baskets but par 4’s and 5’s are not uncommon.


Tee Throws – Throws must be completed within the tee area. Most tee areas will have a concrete tee pad and a sign indicating the location of the basket and its distance from the tee pad. It may also indicate the location of the next basket. A throw from this area is known as the “Drive” and drivers are typically used from this area for maximum distance.


Fairway Throws – Fairway throws must be made with both feet no closer to the hole than where the disc last landed. Any throw from the fairway and beyond ten yards from the basket is known as an “approach” shot and will either require a driver or midrange disc depending on the distance and other factors.


Putt Throws – Putting usually occurs within 10 yards of the basket, falling or jumping putts are not allowed. A successful ‘putt’ sends the disc into the target. The most satisfying sound a disc golfer can hear is the ‘ching!’ of a disc crashing the chains before dropping into the basket


Out of Bounds – A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from the point where the disc went out of bounds and a one-point penalty is incurred. Water hazards and public roads are always out of bounds. Most disc golf courses consist of 9 or 18 holes. Hole lengths vary, but generally fall between 150 and 500 feet each. Trees, shrubbery, water and terrain changes offer plenty of hazards to avoid, and it becomes very possible to lose a disc in areas with thick growth, tall trees or deep water. Fortunately, at significantly lower retail prices, lost discs are more easily replaced than your typical nine-iron.
