Disc Golf Course
Waller Mill Park is home to an 18-hole Disc Golf course. Disc Golf is played in much the same fashion as traditional golf but uses thrown discs instead of a struck ball. The sport, which was first played in the 1970s, shares a similar goal with traditional golf of completing a hole in the fewest number of strokes (or in this case, throws!). Players will have a choice of two tee pads at each hole from which to throw their discs along the fairway towards the metal basket.

Disc Golf Instructions
The object of the game is to play the entire course in the fewest number of throws of a disc. From Memorial Day to Labor Day all baskets will be in the short A locations.
- There are three basic types of discs available, putters for short range, mid-range, and distance drivers.
- Do not throw until other park visitors are safely out of range.
- Begin playing each hole by teeing off from the tee pad and release your throw with both feet behind the flags at the front of the pad.
- All other throws are made from the front edge of where your disc comes to rest.
- Players in groups throw one at a time. The player whose disc is farthest from the basket throws next.
- To complete the hole, the disc must come to rest in the basket or chains.
Disc Golf Rules You Should Know
- A play may not break, bend or hold back any part of a tree or vegetation in order to make room for their throwing motion or their path to the basket. The rules require you to make the “least invasive” stance behind your disc.
- Littering (including cigarette butts) is a courtesy violation and a 1-stroke penalty.
