Specific Rules & Guidelines for the Waynesville Disc Golf Course

  • With an 18-hole course that winds throughout the park, disc golf is one of the most popular activities available at the Waynesville Recreation Park. Played like golf but instead you use a flying disc. One point is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score.
  • Tee Throws: 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.
  • Lie: The spot where the previous throw has landed. You should mark with a mini disc or turn over the thrown disc directly towards the hole or dog leg.
  • Throwing Order: After teeing off, the player whose disc is the 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.
  • Dog Leg: A dog leg is one or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed as indicated by arrows. Until the dog leg is passed, the closest foot to the dog leg must be on the lie when the disc is released.
  • Completion of Hole: A disc that comes to rest in the disc pole hole basket or chains constituted successful completion of that hole.
  • Unplayable Lie: Any disc that comes to rest above the ground is considered an unplayable lie.
  • The disc must be thrown from the lie on the ground directly underneath the unplayable lie. Relocate to avoid damage to the vegetation.
  • Out of Bounds: If out of bounds is visible between the disc and out of bounds line. 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 and public roads are always out of bounds.
  • Course Courtesy: Please pick up trash and help new players play by the rules. Call for more information the Waynesville Recreation Center at 828.456.2030 for more information.
