The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc. Each consecutive throw is made from where the disc came to rest after the last throw. Score is determined by counting the number of throws made on each hole plus penalty throws and then summing all holes. The winner is the player who completes the course with the lowest score.

The course consists of a series of holes laid out so that when the player completes one hole he or she proceeds to the beginning of the next until all the holes have been played. The player is provided with a teeing area from which to begin each hole and a target to complete the hole.

Disc golf courses are normally laid out among wooded areas with diverse terrain to provide natural obstacles to the flight of the disc. These natural obstacles are very much a part of the game and must not be altered by the players in any way to decrease the difficulty of a hole. Disc golf courses are normally 18 holes in length, but there are other combinations as well, including 9-hole, 22-hole, 24-hole and 27-hole courses in existence. Disc golf courses can be found in each of the 50 United States and in Canada, Japan, Mexico, Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Guam, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Scotland, Switzerland, Germany, Finland, Hungary, United Kingdom, Peru, Belgium, Czech Republic, and Taiwan.

Disc golf is a game that expects high standards of etiquette and courtesy. Among the basic considerations of etiquette are such things as concern for spectators and other players and respect for plant life on the course. These rules have been designed to promote fair play for all disc golfers. In using these rules, players shall apply the rule that most directly addresses the situation in question.

Disc Golf Discs

      WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?      
  Within each line (plastic type) of disc (note: disc golf discs are sometimes written "disk golf disks") are different categories of discs, such as maximum distance drivers, extra long range drivers, long range drivers, midrange drivers, and putters. From here, each category has many different types of discs which each have unique characteristics that make them different.  
   
      What makes each one different from the other?      
 

 

STABILITY

WEIGHT

DURABILITY

There are several differences from one disc to another even though they are made out of the same plastic in the similar shape for a similar purpose. The biggest difference is the discs' Stability. Another difference is the disc's individual flight pattern (directly related to stability) as well as the disc's potential for distance.

Each disc is designed to respond in a unique way when thrown at different speeds or angles. The key is to find the disc that flies best with your throw. The other difference is the look of the disc. Discraft discs are some of the best looking discs in the world. The vibrant colors, awesome tye dyes, and world class designs are sure to draw comments from other players.

Stability

  Stability of a disc is the amount and to which side a disc will fall at the end of it's flight. For example a disc with 0.0 stability would fall (if thrown perfectly level) straight in line with the line which the disc flew when it ran out of momentum. A disc thrown forearm with a stability of 2.0 is considered overstable and if the thrower is right handed (left handed is opposite) the disc will fall to the left. A disc thrown under the same conditions that is -2.0 is considered understable and will fall to the right. The scale of stability ranges from 3 to -3.  
     
   
      Weight      
 

 

  • Weight of a disc will change the flight less significantly than stability but still needs to be compatible to the player for maximum game potential. A heavier disc will require more strength to throw as far as a lighter disc, but with the right amount of force will have more momentum and can fly further especially in weathery conditions. A heavier disc will fly truer in the wind than a lighter disc. A beginner will probably do better with a lighter disc regardless of the players strength.
  • Some tournaments require a 150 gram disc but for most players and many tournaments much higher weights are acceptable. An example of a heavier disc would weigh approximately 176 grams.
 
   
   
   
      Durability      
  The durabilty of a disc is it's ability to withstand impacts into trees and obsticales without deteriorating or losing shape. The Durability of a disc is ultimately determined by the type of plastic it is made out of. There are four different lines of discs made by Discraft that each use a different plastic. Pro-D discs are going to be the most economical (price) and have a grippy feel to the plastic. Elite X plastics are durable discs that work great in bad weather conditions. Elite Z plastics come in many vibrant colors and are by far the most durable disc available. The ESP line discs are new to the market and provide very true flights and a great grip.

Disc Golf Terms

 

Stability: The amount to which direction a disc will naturally fall at the end of its flight. If the disc is rotating clockwise it will fall naturally to the left, if counter-clockwise it will fall to the right.

Overstable: The disc will fall an increased amount to its natural tendency at the end of its flight.

Understable: The disc will have a tendency curve opposite the direction of its natural tendency (decided by the thrower). For example if the discs is rotating clockwise it will turn to the right instead of to the left and vice versa. Note: the disc will still fall to the natural side unless extremely understable.

Hyzer: Overstable (see above definition).

Anhyzer: Understable (see above definition).

 
   
      Disc Golf Throws      
 

 

You may want to keep in mind a few basic disc golf throws that different players may use that change the flight of the disc.

The Backhand Throw: A basic bent to extended elbow-from body throw.

The Forearm Throw: Arm begins extended and throws by bending the elbow and flicking the wrist in towards the body.

The Tomahawk: The disc is brought over head and thrown by extending the arm in front of the body.
