Frequently asked questions about disc golf competitions

Here we present frequently asked questions and answers about disc golf competitions, rules and other interesting topics. 

There are several different types of competitions aimed at different skill levels and formats.

  • Casual game: This is an informal game among friends or individuals who want to enjoy the sport without the pressure of competition.
  • Leagues: Disc golf leagues consist of a series of rounds played over a specified period. Scores are often recorded, but the atmosphere is more relaxed than in tournaments.
  • Disc golf competitions: Competitions are competitive events where players are divided into divisions based on skill levels. They can range from local events to national and international championships.

Disc golf competitions are usually scored using a combination of stroke play and match play formats:

  • Stroke play: Each throw counts as a "stroke", and players aim to complete each hole with as few throws as possible.
  • Match play: Players compete hole by hole, with the player who completes the hole with the least number of throws winning the hole. 

Participating in disc golf competitions requires specific equipment:

  • Discar: Different types of discs are used for different throws and distances. Driver, mid-range and putt are the main categories.
  • Bag: A disc golf bag holds several discs and usually has shoulder straps for easy transportation.
  • Markers: Markers are used in disc golf to indicate where the disc landed and ensure accurate throws in the next round of throws.
  • Scorecards: Scorecards help players to record their scores and track success during the competition. There are several apps for your smartphone to keep track of scores.

Preparing for a disc golf competition involves more than just practicing throws:

  • Knowledge of the course: Study the shape of the course and practice on similar courses as much as possible.
  • Physical exercise: Disc golf requires long walks; maintaining physical fitness is beneficial.
