RULES – MANDATORIES

A mandatory route is marked on hole 18. The line for determining whether or not the throw has passed the mandatory is the line formed by extending the plane of the mandatory sign until it intersects the ground. The lie for the next throw is anywhere along a line extending from directly below the mandatory sign to a point FIVE METERS away along a line formed by the extending the plane of the mandatory sign until it intersects the ground.

A one-stroke penalty is assigned for a throw that passes the mandatory marker on the wrong side.

RULES – OUT OF BOUNDS

East Copeland Road is out of bounds. Beyond the property-line fence at the east end of numbers 12 and 14 is out of bounds. The property-line fence is marked with a yellow rope.

If a disc is determined to be out of bounds, the new lie should be marked on a line that is perpendicular to the out-of-bounds line at the point where the disc entered the out-of-bounds area and up to FIVE METERS horizontally away from the out-of-bounds line.

If the position of the thrown disc is not out of bounds but within TWO METERS of the out-of-bounds line, the lie may be relocated to a new lie at any point on a TWO-METER line that extends perpendicularly from the nearest point on the out-of-bounds line and passes through the center of the thrown disc.

The Hippo Ridge gravel driveway is not out of bounds.

A one-stroke penalty is assigned for a throw that comes to rest entirely within an out of bounds area.

RULES – BRUSH PILE RELIEF AREA

Players MUST take relief from brush piles that are located throughout the course. If a player’s disc has come to rest on or in a brush pile and the player is unable to take a stance with all supporting points in contact with the ground, the player MUST establish a lie that is on the line of play (to the basket), farther from the target, and at the nearest point that provides relief. There is no penalty for this adjustment.

Players may take optional relief from standing or flowing water anywhere on the course. To obtain relief, the player may mark a new lie that is on the line of play, farther from the target, and up to TWO METERS from the nearest point that provides relief. There is no penalty for this adjustment.
