Basic Rules of Scoring

Each throw counts as one point. The object is to acquire the lowest total score. Each hole has a par score, the number of throws expected to get the disc in the basket.

  • Tee throws: Throws must be completed within the tee area.
  • Fairway throws: Fairway throws must be made with both feet no closer to the hole than where the disc last landed.
  • Putt throws: Putt throws are made within 10 yards of the pole, falling or jumping putts are not allowed.
  • Out of bounds: A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from the point where the disc went out of bounds, and a one-point penalty is incurred. Water hazards and public roads are always out of bounds.
