Cameron Disc Golf Course
Donated By: Cameron Rotary Club
In the summer of 2011 the Cameron Rotary Club presented the idea of funding a disc golf course to the Cameron Park Board and placing the course in Recreation Park. The Cameron Park Board believed that this course would be a great addition to the park and would be very well utilized by the community and school district at that location. The Park Board at that point began course planning and development. The final outcome was a 9 hole par 3 course with a variety of interesting holes to delight golfers. The total length of the course is approximately 1,858 feet with several elevation changes and many tree hazards to overcome. The course is fun yet challenging for adults and youth alike. The course is free to play and can be enjoyed anytime the park is open The course begins on the southeast corner of Recreation Park and ends just south of the Aquatic Center parking lot. Disc golf provides upper and lower body conditioning, aerobic exercise and promotes a combination of physical and mental abilities that allow very little risk of physical injury. Concentration skills increase by mastering shots and negotiating obstacles. Players of limited fitness levels can start slowly and gradually increase their level of play as their fitness improves. The Cameron Park Board and the Cameron Rotary Club hopes that you enjoy the disc golf course and your time spent in the park!
Disc Golf Hole Diagrams
Disc Golf Rules / Instructions:
Disc Golf is played like ball golf using a lying 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.
Tee thows must be completed within or behind the designated tee area. Do not throw until the players in front of you are out of range.
The spot where the previous throw has landed, mark with a mini disc or turn over the thrown disc directly towards the hole or dog leg.
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 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.
A dog leg is one or more designated trees or poles in the fairway that must be passed as indicated by arrows. Until the dog leg is passed, the closest foot to the dog leg must be on the lie when the disc is released.
Completion of Hole:
A disc that comes to rest in the trapper basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole.
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 or relocated to avoid damaged to the vegetation.
Out of Bounds:
If out of bounds is visible between the disc and out of bounds boundary line, a throw that lands out of bounds must be played from a point 3 feet in bounds from where the disc went out of bounds, permanent water hazards and public roads are always out of bounds.
Recreational players will not be penalized for rule infractions. Other players will keep you honest.
Please pick up trash and help new players play by the rules. You are the one that makes it work. By your example, disc golf will change your life and theirs too. Remember the most important rule: The one who has the most fun wins!
Tee off & fly freely!
