Ken-Caryl Ranch Disc Golf Rules

  • General: Disc Golf is similar to regular golf using a flying disc (Frisbee). One point is counted each time the disc is thrown or when a penalty is incurred. The object is to accumulate the lowest score.
  • Tee Throws: Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.
  • Lie: The spot on or directly underneath the spot where the previous throw ended (where the Frisbee landed).
  • Throwing Order: After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the lowest score on the previous hole throws first (is the first to tee off).
  • Fairway Throws: Fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the hole on the lie or behind the lie. The other foot may land no closer to the hole than the lie. A run-up and normal follow through after release is allowed.
  • Dog Leg: A dog leg is on one or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed on the outside when approaching the hole. Until the dog leg is passed the closest foot to the dog leg must be on the lie when the disc is released.
  • Putt Throw: Within 10 yards of the pole, a player may not step past the point of his/her lie in making his/her putt throw. Falling or jumping putts are not allowed.
  • Completion of Hole: A disc that comes to rest in the disc hole basket constitutes successful completion of that hole.
  • Unplayable Lie: Any disc that comes to rest more than six feet above the ground is considered an unplayable lie. After declaring an unplayable lie, the disc must be thrown from the new lie on the ground, directly underneath the unplayable lie (one throw penalty).
  • Out of Bounds: A throw that lands out of bounds must be played at the point where the disc went out of bounds. Over fences and public roads are always out of bounds (one throw penalty).
  • Course Courtesy: Don’t throw until the players ahead of you are out of range.
