804.01 Mandatory Routes

Last updated: Sunday, December 31, 2023 - 18:11

  1. A mandatory route restricts the path the disc may take in the process of playing a hole.
  2. The restricted plane is a vertical plane marked by one or more objects or other markers which define the edges of the space.
  3. If part of a thrown disc clearly enters into a restricted plane, the player receives one penalty throw. The lie for the next throw is the drop zone for that mandatory. If no drop zone has been designated, the lie for the next throw is the previous lie.
  4. If the thrown disc is released on the other side of the restricted plane compared to the rear edge of the marker disc, the player has missed the mandatory. The next lie and penalty are the same as 804.01.C.
