Also called frisbee golf, disc golf is a flying disc game, as well as a precision and accuracy sport, in which individual players throw a flying disc at a target. According to the Professional Disc Golf association, "The object of the game is to traverse a course from beginning to end in the fewest number of throws of the disc."
What makes our disc golf course unique is the utilization of natural elements such as trees, shrubs and canyons as obstacles as well as elevation changes to make the course challenging. Keeping the raw and environmentally conscious elements add additional challenges to the course.
Because of the topography and its importance to the course, there are unseen hazards including wild life, uneven footing, and canyon drop offs.
All players should always keep in mind that disc golf discs can be potentially very dangerous if not thrown with safety and common sense always in mind. Never throw a disc in the area someone occupies unless they are completely aware you are throwing it in their direction. Players should always wait until the player or group in front of them have completed a hole and moved out of the way until they throw.
If you come upon a hole where the target is blind and you can potentially not see a group ahead it is common procedure to call out "Clear on (#of hole you are on)". If there is no answer you should again call out and before throwing say "Coming down on (#of hole you are on)." Discs can be thrown fast and when hit can cause serious injury.
