Rules to play Disc Golf
Disc golf, also known as Frolf, Folf, Frisbee disc or frisbee golf, is a flying disc game
1. Disc golf
Disc Golf, also known as frisbee golf or frolf a combination of frisbee and golf , is a game that is very similar to traditional ball golf. However, instead of using golf balls and golf clubs, players throw a disc into a basket or at a target. Score is kept the same with the lowest score winning. The object of the game is to finish the course in the fewest number of throws. A hole is started by someone throwing a drive from the tee pad area and completed when the disc comes to rest in the basket.

The game of disc golf is played all over the United States as well as around the world. As of 2010, there were more than 3,000 established courses, nearly all of them free to play and more being designed and implemented all the time. Most of these courses are 9, 18, or 27 holes and vary in length and difficulty. Some even have alternate tee pads and alternate basket placements.

2. Teeing off
Play begins on each hole with each player throwing from within a designated area. This area is usually signified by a cement or rubber tee pad measuring approximately 5 by 12. At least one foot must be in contact with the tee at the time of release.
3. Establishing position
A thrown disc establishes a position where it first comes to rest. A disc is considered at rest once it is no longer moving. If the disc breaks into pieces the largest piece establishes position.
4. Marking the Lie
The established position of a thrown disc on the in bounds playing surface marks its lie. Alternatively, a mini marker may be used to mark the lie by placing it directly in front of the thrown disc on the line of play.
5. Throwing from a stance
To throw from a correct stance when the disc is released, a player must have one supporting point in contact with the playing surface on the lie. You may also not have any supporting points out of bounds, touching the marker or an object in front of your lie. After the disc is released, supporting points may come in contact with the playing surface in front of your lie except when putting. One is considered putting when inside a 10 meter radius of the target. Once a lie is inside this circle, all supporting points on the surface must stay behind the lie until after the throw is complete and you have established balance. A player shall receive a warning for the first stance violation in the round and all subsequent violations will result in a one stroke penalty and re throw.
