Do you have a flying disc or Frisbee? Why not invite your friends and family to play a round of disc golf? Disc golf is an exciting new sport in Red Deer, and it’s free for anyone who wants to play.
Upcoming Disc Golf Course and Open House
The City of Red Deer, in partnership with the Primary Care Network of Red Deer, is excited to announce the construction of a 10-hole disc golf course at the Victoria Park central park site. The course planned for Victoria Park has been designed for beginner to intermediate game play.
Join us at the Victoria Park central park site on Allan Street from 5 until 7 p.m. on July 24, 2012, for a disc golf open house. We will have disc golf equipment onsite to provide residents the opportunity to try the sport and we will also have city staff available to answer any questions you may have about the sport and the Victoria Park course design.

Rules of Disc Golf
Object of the game: Players traverse the course from beginning to end, and the player who completes the course with the fewest throws of the disc wins the game
Tee off: Tee throws must be released from behind the designated tee area.
Throwing order: The lowest score on the previous hole tees off first. After the tee off, the player whose lie is farthest from the target throws first. Please remember to be courteous: do not throw until the players or park users are out of range.
A lie is the spot where the disc lands. You may mark this spot with a mini disc or any item to ensure the disc is not released past the lie.
Fairway throws must be made from the lie. Run-ups and follow-throughs are permitted.
An unplayable lie is any disc that comes to rest above the ground (in a tree). Relocate the disc to as close as possible to the unplayable lie without damaging vegetation. There is no penalty for relocating the disc.
A throw that lands out of bounds must be played from the point where the disc went into the out-of-bound area. (One throw penalty)
A putt is made within 10 yards of the target, and a player may not step past the lie when attempting a putt throw.
The hole is complete when the disc is in the basket.
Remember, the most important rule: have fun!
