Victoria Park (along Allan Street): a 9 hole, 2500 foot course in Central Red Deer. The course is rated at par 28 and par 25 for professionals.
How do I play?
Disc golf is fun in summer or winter. Each player has a disc that they throw into the baskets using as few throws as possible. A disc can be purchased from a sports store or you can use a Frisbee. Everyone should have their own disc or Frisbee to play.
Use disc golf for a family outing, to challenge friends or co-workers or for events such as children’s birthday parties.
What are the rules?
OBJECT OF THE GAME: is to traverse the course from the beginning to the end in the fewest number of throws of the disc.
TEE OFF throws must be released from behind the designated tee area.
THROWING ORDER starts with the lowest score on the previous hole teeing off first. After the tee off, the player whose lie is farthest from the target throws first.
LIE is the spot where the disc lands. You may mark this spot with a mini disc or any item to ensure the disc is not released past the lie.
FAIRWAY THROWS must be made from the lie. A run-up and follow through is permitted.
UNPLAYABLE LIE is any disc that comes to rest above the ground (in a tree). Relocate the disc to as close as possible to the unplayable lie without damaging vegetation. There is no penalty for relocating the disc. A throw that lands OUT OF BOUNDS must be played from the point where the disc went into the out of bounds area (1 throw penalty).
BE COURTEOUS and do not throw until the players or park users are out of range.
PUTT is made within 10 yards of the target, and a player may not step past the lie when attempting to putt throw.
COMPLETION OF A HOLE is when the disc is in the basket.
The most important rule is to HAVE FUN!
