Course Courtesy

Courtesy rules are so important! Here's a quick list to follow:
  • Remain silent and avoid all unnecessary movements while someone is throwing 
  • Always stand behind the player who is throwing until their throw is completed.
  • Retrieve your disc after its lands in the basket 
  • Allow faster groups to "play through" whenever possible. 
  • Pack it in, pack it out - DO NOT LEAVE TRASH
  • Do not alter the course in any way, other than removing debris
  • If you find a disc with a name and number - do your part to return it to it's rightful owner - karma may help you get a lost disc of your own back!
  • Respect other players and help Grow The Sport

Disc Selection

So you are ready to make your first disc purchase but aren't sure where to start?
Here's what Innova suggests: Resist the temptation to try lots of different discs, especially high speed discs. Concentrate on learning to throw two or three lighter weight discs until you develop a feel for throwing golf discs. Some excellent Innova disc choices for new players are: 
  • Aviar, Leopard, Polecat, Manta, Stingray, Skeeter, & Mamba  
From Trilogy we recommend trying some of the following:
  • Deputy, EMAC Truth, Escape, Diamond, Jade, Renegade, River, Sapphire 
From MVP, Axiom, Streamline we suggest:
  • Crave, Drift, Inspire, Pilot, Proxy, Relay, Spin, & Signal 
From Discraft these are some great beginner discs:
  • AvengerSS, Buzzz, Comet, CrankSS, Heat, Magnet, & Roach 
The Discmania lineup also offers a few discs perfect for beginners:
  • DD, Evolution Line Essence, FD, Active Line Magician, & Sensei
