How to Play Disc Golf and Disc Golf Rules

Disc golf is a great game. It is something that you can play recreationally with friends or that, believe it or not, you can play seriously and competitively. No matter what your goals with the game may be, you will find that learning how to play disc golf is actually quite simple, especially if you know and understand the basic rules.

The Basic Rules of Disc Golf

The first thing to know, disc golf is a game of respect and courtesy. And you are asked to treat your fellow players, opponents or not, in a friendly manner.

For example, you cannot distract another player when he is throwing. Nor can you throw your disc without ensuring it will not cause a problem or distraction for another player.

Aside from general courtesies, each golf hole begins with a tee-off and then throwing until the players have all reached the basket, just as in golf. Scoring is also the same as golf. Every time you throw your disc that counts as a “stroke.” Penalties that you incur as you play also count as a stroke. At the end of the game, the player who took the fewest strokes or throws wins. It’s as simple as that, but so much more fun than you could ever imagine!

Make Your Final Shot Your Easiest Shot

As you learn how to play disc golf, you will quickly find that the desire to win is real.

Even though the sport isn’t always super competitive, winning is the kind of thing that players seem to get into. So, even if you are not playing for serious reasons, you’ll likely still find yourself wanting to win…big time.

Tips to Remember:

If that’s you, one key tip to follow is to remember not to get too hung up on distance. All too often, players, especially beginning players, want to throw their discs as far as they can from the first throw onward.

And, while throwing far is helpful, it’s not the important part of winning the game.

You’d be much better off by seeing the big picture and trying to make as few progressive throws as you can to get your disc into the net. You also want to make it so that your approach shot is easy and so that your final shot is your easiest one yet.

This is the point where you should be wrapping things up and getting that disc into the net. So don’t make it hard when you don’t have to.

Take the Proper Stance and Use Good Technique

Another thing that can help you to get better at disc golf is to remember that stance and technique matter. As such, always try to keep these things in mind when you play.

Always begin with a stationary throw. Once you have mastered that, you can do a run-up or at least work your way up to one

When throwing, reach back with a full extension of both the arm and the elbow. Then, when you’re ready, bring the arm forward by pushing the elbow and maintaining strength and power until you are ready to release the disc.

Remember while you throw to keep the rest of your body as still and firm as possible. This will help you to control your shot and will give you a better chance at landing your disc in the net.

Follow the Rules of Tee Off Order

While disc golf may be largely about fun, it’s also about following the rules. This is especially true when it comes to the rules of tee off order.

Always remember that the first tee is decided upon by flipping discs. If you’re not playing as serious of a game, though, you can simply decide who goes first.

If you are flipping discs, use the printed side of the disc as “heads.”

This flipping is only done on the first tee off. For all other holes, allow the player with the lowest score on the previous hole to go first.

Use Quality Equipment

In addition to following these tips and following the rules, make sure you are using quality equipment.

You don’t have to spend a fortune, and playing at a local park is just fine, but you should have quality discs and other materials to help improve your game.

As long as you can follow this tip and the others presented here, you should get great enjoyment from disc golf.
