➊ Disc golf is a game where any number of players attempt to throw a specialized disc into a standing basket with the fewest number of throws.
➋ Do not use a regular Frisbee. Disc golf discs are much different and are made for long distances. Bright colors are recommended to avoid losing them.
➌ Decide who will go first. After that, the player with the fewest strokes on the previous hole goes first and tees are set up at the beginning of each hole.
➍ A “lie” is where your throw lands, marked by a mini disc or turning over the thrown disc. You must throw from behind the lie on your next turn.
➎ “Unplayable lies” allow you to throw from as close to the lie as possible, such as when your disc gets stuck in a tree. Fairway throws allow a run-up and follow through, but not within 10 meters of the basket.
➏ A “mandatory” refers to a designated tree or pole on the fairway that must be passed on the correct side indicated by an arrow. Failing to pass on the correct side results in a penalty of one stroke and the player must either continue from their previous lie or play from a marked drop zone.
➐ The round is completed by throwing the disc into the basket (generally these baskets are made of chains). Remove your disc after completing the hole.
➑ At the end of each round, the player with the fewest number of strokes wins. Games consist of 18 holes, but each course can vary.
