Disc Golfer's Code

Disc Golfer's Code

Can I throw an extra shot for fun? What's the deal with the mini discs? My drive is under the basket, should I just pick it up and tap the chains?

PDGA tournament or league play can have some differences from the casual rounds you might be used to throwing.

Luckily, all you need to have a successful first event is to know a few basic things. As you play more tournaments – or even run some events of your own – you’ll quickly become well-versed in the PDGA Official Rules of Disc Golf (which you should read up on before your tournament, along with the Competition Manual).

Golf, at its core, is a sport of integrity and courtesy to fellow players, the course, and the game itself. It’s a game of personal responsibility — a self-officiating battle between the player, the course, and competitors.

The rules of disc golf are thorough, and the enforcement of the rules are critical to upholding the integrity of the game, which, as you know, has absolutely exploded in recent years.

With the massive influx of new players finding disc golf, both as casual and tournament players, there are a few guidelines that, at the end of the day, protect and uphold the integrity of the game.

We are happy to announce that StoppaSigns & Engraving LLC is now offering discounted rates to PDGA members when ordering the "Disc Golfer's Code" sign and/or the "Caution: Flying Discs" sign. StoppaSigns, run by Neil Stoppa II, is a Michigan-based company that is currently willing to ship anywhere in the United States.

The first rule of the Disc Golfer’s Code is: "Talk about The Code.”

So far, the positive response from disc golfers worldwide toward the Disc Golf Code has been truly remarkable. By talking about the code, you are promoting the code, and in turn helping to shape the future of our sport. However, it is essential to remember that promoting the education and awareness of the sport should not rely 100% on those that play it.

Our time has come to get serious about having fun: 1. Play Smart; 2. Respect the Course; 3. Represent the Sport.
