OBJECTIVE OF THE GAME
Disc Golf is played like traditional golf, but with flying discs (similar to a Frisbee) instead of balls and clubs. One point (stroke) is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The goal is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. The player with the lowest total strokes of the entire course wins.
ALL OTHER PARK USERS HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY. Never throw when players or park users are within range. Always give park users the right of way. Please politely ask other park users if you can play through if they are using the green spaces on the course. Be aware of your surroundings and environment.
PETS MUST BE KEPT ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES. Town of Strathmore Bylaws stipulate that any dogs must be on leash and under your control at all times. Please make sure your dog is not running free and please make sure you pick up after them.
OUT OF BOUNDS
OB lines/areas are indicated on each hole sign. Please play with the intent of never crossing an OB line - shorter, more accurate throws are essential in residential areas. If any area of O.B. is visible between the disc and O.B. line, then the disc is considered O.B. A throw that lands out of bounds, must be played from a point 3 feet in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds. Permanent water hazards, backyards, pathways, and roads are always out of bounds.
Please note that pathways are always out of bounds, and your disc is NOT PERMITTED TO CROSS THEM at any time. This is to ensure safety and to avoid discs landing in back yards.
IF YOUR DISC LANDS IN A PRIVATE YARD: Please ask permission before entering private property! If you enter without permission you are trespassing - this is not only disrespectful, but also against the law! Several fences have already been broken by players jumping into yards to retrieve their discs. Please find a way to the front of the house and knock on the door to get permission to retrieve your disc. We want the residents in town to continue to support disc golf and players damaging property is not a good way to do that.
