One disc is all you need to get started! As your skills advance, you may find yourself adding drivers, putters and mid-range discs to your bag. The game's lure is the constant challenge to throw a disc with power and accuracy. Aside being a fun social game, it’s a sport for all ages and all levels of fitness. The game is played much like traditional golf but with a Frisbee, or flying disc, in place of the golf ball and club. The disc is thrown from a tee area to a target, referred to as the “hole” (elevated metal basket with a metal chain net) with the main object to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws. The Knoxville Disc Golf Club hosts tournaments and events for beginners and pros.
TOMMY SCHUMPERT PARK
This very technical 9-hole course is played in the woods with short and long tees, and some elevation changes. Future plans are to expand the 9-hole course to a full 18-holes.
VICTOR ASHE PARK
Gently rolling hills accent this tournament level 18-hole course of mostly open fairways. Features include large teepads, nice tee signs, and multiple pin placements. There is a practice putting basket, picnic table, and bulletin board near the 1st tee.

Tee throws 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 :
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.
Completion Of Hole:
A disc that comes to rest in the 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. Relocated to avoid damage to the vegetation.
Out Of Bounds:
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.
