Disc golf course

The new Campus Recreation Services disc golf course is a par 3 course with 10 holes to complete it. The course starts by the alumni house moving south, wrapping around the Ute soccer field. The course continues around the green space and finishes with the final hole next to the Lassonde Studios Sport Courts. The course is a friendly to beginners but provides enough challenge or seasoned players to still improve their game.

The course is open 7 days a week from sunrise to sunset with minimal closures only due to athletic events or reservations in the areas. Please be courteous of other outdoor space users and cars, as the course shares space with other facilities. If you do not have your own discs, Outdoor Adventures has rental discs to use (Disc rental may not be available due to COVID-19). If discs are lost or thrown into locked facilities, please call Campus Rec at 801-581-8898 to report your disc to lost and found. 

Course card

Objective

Disc Golf is played like traditional golf, but with disc golf discs instead of balls and clubs. One throw (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 for the entire course wins.

Safety first

Never throw when players or other park users are within range. Always give park users the right of way. Be aware of your surroundings and environment at all times.

Tee throws

Each hole begins with a tee throw. Tee throws must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.

Lie

The lie is the spot where the player’s previous throw has landed. Mark each lie with a mini marker disc or leave the thrown disc on the ground where it landed. The player’s subsequent throw is made from directly behind the marked lie.

Throwing order

The player with the least amount of strokes on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole. After all players have teed off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first.

Fairway throws

Fairway throws must be made from directly behind the lie. A run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed, unless the lie is within 10 meters of the target. Any shot within 10 meters of the target requires that the player maintain balance and not move past the lie until the disc comes to rest.

Mandatory

A mandatory, or mando, is one or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed to the correct side as indicated by an arrow. If the disc passes to the wrong side of mandatory, either play from the previous lie or from a marked drop zone area if applicable and add a one throw penalty.

Completion of a hole

A disc that comes to rest in the disc golf basket or suspended in the chains constitutes the successful completion of that hole.

Out of bounds

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 up to 1 meter in bounds from where the disc crossed over the out of bounds line. Permanent water hazards, public roads, and most park boundaries are almost always out of bounds.
