3.1 General - Official Rules and Regulations of Disc Golf


  1. All PDGA members should refrain from any conduct which is detrimental to the game of disc golf and to the PDGA, both on and off of the course.

  2. All players must abide by the PDGA Official Rules of Disc Golf and the PDGA Competition Manual.

  3. Players are not permitted to have audible mobile phones or audible pagers on the course during any competitive round. In addition, personal music players and other devices must be used exclusively with personal headphones and the volume must be kept at a level so as not to be heard by other players, prevent the player from effectively interacting with his group during scorekeeping tasks, or provide a safety hazard for the player by not hearing "Fore!" calls from other players or warning blasts by the Tournament Director.

  4. Animals, with the exception of accredited service animals, may not accompany players during competition.

  5. All players will be required to take and pass an online tournament rules assessment test before being able to compete in any Elite Series/National Tour or Major PDGA sanctioned event. This test will be based upon the PDGA Official Rules of Disc Golf and the PDGA Competition Manual.

  6. The PDGA reserves the right to determine and enforce further disciplinary action upon its players and members, which may result in probation or suspension from PDGA sanctioned events or permanent loss of PDGA membership. For more information see the PDGA disciplinary policies and procedures.
