A. Description of the Game. The game of disc golf consists of throwing a
flying disc from the teeing area to a target by a throw or successive throws.
Players shall play the course as they find it and play the disc where it lies
unless allowed otherwise by the Rules. The competitor who plays the
stipulated round or rounds in the fewest throws plus penalty throws is the
803.03 Marking the Lie
A. After each throw, the thrown disc must be left where it came to rest until the lie is established by the placing of a marker. This can be done by placing a mini marker disc on the playing surface between the hole and the disc, directly in line with the hole, on the line of play, touching the thrown disc. A player may instead choose, without touching or repositioning the thrown disc, to use the thrown disc as the marker. The marker may not be moved until the throw is released. A marker inadvertently moved prior to the throw shall be returned to its correct location.
0. A disc shall be considered out-of-bounds only when it comes to rest and it
is clearly and completely surrounded by the out-of-bounds area.
B. A player whose disc is considered out-of-bounds shall receive one penalty
throw. The player may elect to play the next shot from:
(1) The previous lie as evidenced by the marker disc or, if the marker disc
has been moved from an approximate lie, as agreed to by the majority of
the group or an official; or (2) A lie that is up to one meter away from and
perpendicular to the point where the disc last crossed into out-of-bounds, as
determined by a majority of the group or an official. This holds true even if
the direction takes the lie closer to the hole.
803.11 Lost Disc
A. A disc shall be declared lost if the player cannot locate it within three
minutes after arriving at the spot where it was last seen by the group or an
official. Two players or an official must note when the timing of three minutes
begins. All players of the group must, upon request, assist in searching for
|An object or objects that the disc must pass in a designated manner on its way to the hole. A mandatory functions to limit the allowable path the disc may take to the hole.|
||An area designated by the director prior to the start of play from which a disc may not be played. The out-of-bounds line extends a plane vertically upward and downward. The out-of-bounds line is itself out-of-bounds. An out-of-bounds disc is not a lost disc.|
|Drop Zone:||An area on the course, as designated by the course designer or director, from which play is resumed after the preceding shot (1) was thrown out-of-bounds, (2) missed a mandatory, or (3) was declared lost, or (4) landed in a protected area (governed by 804.01, Special Conditions). The throwing area from within the drop zone shall be clearly marked and played in a manner similar to the marking and playing of a teeing area.|
the disc for the full three minutes before the disc is declared lost. The disc
is considered lost immediately upon the expiration of the three minute time
B. A player whose disc is declared lost shall receive one penalty throw. If
the throw was made from the tee, the player will re-tee for the next shot. If
not made from the tee, the group will determine the approximate lie from
which the throw was made, and the player will throw again from that lie. In
all cases the original throw plus one penalty throw shall be counted in the
A. A mandatory restricts the path the disc may take to the target. A disc must
pass to the correct side of the mandatory before the hole is completed. Once
the disc has completely passed the mandatory line on the correct side (even
if it subsequently re-crosses the line), the mandatory is to be ignored for the
remainder of play on that hole.
(1) The mandatory line is the line marked by the director or course designer
to indicate when a disc has passed or missed the mandatory.
(2) If no line is marked, the mandatory line is defined as a straight line
through the mandatory, perpendicular to the line from the tee to the
(3) In the case of a double mandatory when no line is marked, the mandatory
line is the straight line connecting the two mandatories, and extends beyond
them in both directions.
B. A throw is considered to have missed the mandatory if it passes the
incorrect side of the mandatory line from the direction of the tee, and comes
to rest lying completely beyond that line.
C. A disc that has missed the mandatory results in a one-throw penalty
and the next throw shall be made from the drop zone, as designated for
that mandatory. In cases where the drop zone is not designated, the lie is
marked within five meters of the mandatory object and one meter behind the
mandatory line which extends from the correct side of the mandatory.
E. A throw that misses a mandatory shall be penalized and the lie marked
according to the mandatory rule (803.12). It will not be further penalized for
any other reason, such as out-of-bounds or above two meters.
