Nottingham Disc Golf
What is disc golf and what are the rules?
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee. The sport was formalized in the 1970's, and shares with "ball golf" the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws).
A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the "hole". On the University of Nottingham course the holes are the trunks of trees. The trunk it defined as the roots of the tree upwards to the highest point the thrower can jump. Roots do not count.
There are numerous cases whereby a player may pick up penalties.
- 1 stroke penalty for any concrete/ tarmac/ road/ pavement or similar. The disc MUST be taken back to the last playable area it flew over i.e. the last grass area.
- 1 stroke penalty for hitting any buildings on University Park.
- 1 stroke penalty if the disc lands in water.
- 1 stroke penalty if you hit somebody. If the person picks the disc up and throws it then you must play from where the new disc location resides.
The par for the course is 78 strokes.
The current top score is 62 held by Joe Gates.
