DISC GOLF RULES:
|TEE THROWS:||Tee Throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.|
|LIE:||The spot on or directly underneath the place where the previous throw landed. A marker is placed in the front of the spot, and the thrower’s foot must be within 15 centimeteres of it as the next throw is executed. The other foot may be no closer to the hole than the lie. A run-up and normal following-through after release, is allowed.|
|THROWING ORDER:||The player with the least amount of throws on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the hole. After tee off the player whose disc is further from the hole always throws first.|
|PUTT THROW:||Within 10 meters of the target, a player may not step past the pint of his/her lie after putting. Falling or jumping putts are not allowed.|
|COMPLETION OF HOLE:||A disc that successfully comes to rest in the basket completes that hole.|
|UNPLAYABLE LIE:||Any disc that comes to rest more than two metres above the ground or in a hazard is considered an unplayable lie. After declaring an unplayable lie the disc must be thrown from a new lie one metre into the fairway but no nearer the hole. A one stroke penalty is counted.|
|OUT OF BOUNDS:||A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from the point where the disc crossed into foul territory. Water hazards, paved pathways and public roads are always out of bounds (one stroke penalty).|
|COURSE ETIQUETTE:||Disc Golf is played on a public course, and requires high standards of conduct and courtesy toward other Bear Paw users. Persons playing Disc Golf must recognize that all other Bear Paw users always have the right of way. A flying disc or Frisbee should not be thrown if it disturbs or interrupts the enjoyment of the golf course by other Bear Paw users. Never throw a flying disc or Frisbee if there is the slightest chance of it landing on or near another Bear Paw user. Requests to play throw an area occupied by other Bear Paw users should be made in a polite, courteous manner. Treat Bear Paw landscape and its natural features with respect to ensure Passive Play. Don’t litter, tread lightly and take care not to damage low shrubs and wild flowers. Never trample a bush when retrieving a disc, or to get a better shot. Pull your disc directly out of the bush to the left or right 90 degrees when facing the target without a penalty. Never break a branch off a tree or bush to retrieve a disc from in a tree.|
