Disc Golf is a great outdoor activity that is fun for young and old alike.
Playing is similar to regular golf in that you use different discs depending
on the distance of the hole you are throwing. There are putter discs,
mid-range discs, and distance discs. For beginners to this great sport we
recommend starting with a mid-range disc.
The Cross Keys Community Park offers a 9 hole disc golf course
that is fun and accessible for a wide range of skill levels.

The following are a list of disc golf rules for recreational play slightly modified from the DGA Website.
The rules are simple and are easy to learn and are meant to provide the basic framework for playing the game.
Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area. Do not throw until the players in front of you are out of range.
After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the least amount of throws on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole.
The spot where the previous throw has landed. After the initial throw players may not travel beyond the spot where their disc landed. However, a run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed.
Completion Of Hole
There are 2 different ways that people tend to play. The stricter of the 2 is that completion of the hole only occurs when the disc comes to rest inside the Disc Hole Basket. The less strict is if the disc simply touches the chains of the basket. Either way is fine but should be determined beforehand by players.
Any disc that comes to rest above the ground is considered an un-playable lie. The disc must be thrown from the lie on the ground, directly underneath the un-playable lie. Relocated to avoid damage to the vegetation.
Out Of Bounds
If your disc lands in any of the Out Of Bounds areas there are 2 options you have in regards to rules. Stricter play suggests that a player must add 1 throw point to their score and play the disc from 3ft in bounds from where the disc first left legal play. The looser rules simply allow player to throw disc from where the disc landed out of bounds. Again, these rules should be determined before you begin. All public roads are always out of bounds.
Please pick up trash and help new players play by the rules. Your are the one that makes it work. By your example, disc golf will change your life and theirs too. Remember the most important rule: The one who had the most fun wins! Tee off & fly freely.
