Welcome to Fort Gordon Disc Golf. The following information is provided for recreational players and as a way to introduce new players to the game of disc golf. For competitive players who want to use the official Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) rules, please visit PDGA.com.

Objective of the Game / Instructions

Objective of the Game

Disc golf is played like traditional golf, but with flying disc instead of balls and clubs. Players throw from the designated tee area to a metal basket. 1 point or stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown. The goal is to complete the hole with the fewest throws. The layout, suggested route and par for each hole will be displayed on the tee sign at each tee box.


Starting the Game

Players begin each hole by throwing the disc from within the designated tee area.


Completing the Hole

After taking the initial throw from the tee, advance toward the basket by throwing the disc along the fairway. The spot where the disc lands after each shot is called the "lie". The next throw is made directly behind the lie. If playing in a group, the player whose disc is farthest away from the basket throws next. You have completed the hole when your disc lands and stays in the basket.


Out of Bounds

Crossing a sidewalk or landing in a parking lot or roadway is "Out of Bounds". Should your disc land in an out of bounds area, retrieve your disc and return to where the disc crossed out of bounds, mark a new lie one meter perpendicular to the hazard. The next throw is taken from this lie, with a 1 stroke penalty. Any additional designated "Out of Bounds" areas will be indicated on the tee sign for each hole with red and white lines.

FAQ

I'm ready to play... now what?

Do I have to use a special disc?
Most players prefer to use discs designed for the game of disc golf. However, feel free to try the game with a regular Frisbee.

Do I have to schedule a tee time?
No, come play anytime. However, from time to time we will have leagues or tournaments that may close the course for open play.

How much does it cost to play?
Nothing! Playing the Fort Gordon Disc Golf Courses is free.

What if I bring a large group?
No problem at all. While you are allowed to play together we ask that you split into groups of 4 to 6 to speed up play. Remember to let other groups play through if they catch up to you.

What if I lose a disc or I find one?
Most people mark their name and often, their phone number or email address. Do the right thing and give them a call to return their disc. You might make a new friend along the way.

Do you have scheduled tournaments or leagues?
We will post information concerning league or tournaments on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/FortGordonDiscGolf or, here on this web page.
