The Sycamore Creek Disc Golf is open to the public. Each year, thousands of rounds are played on our 18 hole disc golf course. The first 9 holes of this course were developed and installed in 2004 with the help and donations of our church family. In 2011, thanks to a generous donation from a local family and disc golf enthusiast, the final 9 holes were developed.
Disc Golf is a great game for families. With that in mind, we have tried to make our course easy enough that children will enjoy playing as well as challenging enough that even the more advanced Disc Golf players will enjoy the course.
Below you will find information about Disc Golf- rules, course layout, etc. We hope you enjoy the Sycamore Creek Disc Golf Course!

DISC GOLF RULES FOR RECREATIONAL PLAY
GENERAL Disc Golf is played like ball golf using a flying disc. One point is counted each time the disc is thrown and when a penalty is incurred. The object is to acquire the lowest score (without cheating).
TEE THROWS Tee throws must be completed behind the designated tee marker. At the Sycamore Creek Disc Golf Course, the sign post for each hole is the designated tee marker. Do not throw until the players in front of you are out of range.
LIE Your lie is the spot where the previous throw has landed. Any disc that comes to rest above the ground is considered an un-playable lie. The disc must be thrown from the lie on the ground, directly underneath the un-playable lie. Relocated to avoid damage to the vegetation.
THROWING ORDER After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the least amount of throws on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole.
FAIRWAY THROWS Fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the hole on the lie. The other foot may be no closer to the hole than the lie. A run-up and normal follow-through, after release, is allowed.
COMPLETION OF HOLE A disc that comes to rest in the Disc Pole Hole basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole.
PENALTIES Recreational players will not be penalized for rule infractions. Other players will keep you honest.
RISK Disc Golf is a safe game so long as everyone plays with courtesy and common sense, however, when playing there is an assumed risk and you are responsible for looking out for flying DISCs.
COURSE COURTESY Please pick up trash and help new players play by the rules. Allow faster or smaller groups to play through.
