Mind Body Soul Summer: Frisbee Toss or Golf

Summer is a great time to get outside and explore news hobbies/sports!  Have you ever played Frisbee Golf, a fun sport played casually in your backyard or competitively at your local course.  For example, Boarderland State Park in Easton has an expansive course throughout the park, used by people of all different levels and ages.  

Frisbee Golf not your game?  All you need is a frisbee and a little space.  Toss the disc with family or friends for some fun exercise.  

Below are the rules to basic frisbee golf provided by the West Sound Disc Golf Association.  Please visit their website at https://wsdga.org/Images/BasicRulesofPlay.pdf


1) Do Not Litter. Please keep the park clean for other users to enjoy. 

2) Disc Golf is played like ball golf, except you use flying discs. Each throw is counted to determine a score. The winner is the player with the lowest score. 

3) Tee throws must be completed within the designated tee areas. 

4) After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole (basket) always throws first. Never throw until the players ahead of you are out of range, and until the fairway is completely clear of spectators and park guests.

 5) The player with the least amount of throws on the previous hole is the first to tee-off on the next hole. Golf is a game of honor and etiquette. 

6) Throws after the tee shot must be made with one foot on the spot where the last throw came to rest. The other foot shall not be any closer to the hole. 

7) A run-up and normal follow through, after release, is allowed more than 10 meters (33 feet) from the hole. Inside 10 meters, “Falling” or “jumping putts” are not allowed. A player shall show balance after the putt (inside 10 meters).

 8) A disc that comes to rest inside the disc golf basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole. A disc that comes to rest on top or outside of the basket does NOT count as a completion of the hole.

 9) A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from the point where the disc was last inbounds, with a one throw penalty. Water, roads, parking lots, and over fences are normal disc golf out of bounds hazards. 

10) Be courteous to other players. Stand quietly while they drive, approach, and putt and try to stay behind or at least off the line of sight while they throw. Most importantly – have fun and enjoy the game of Disc Golf.
