Sherwood Hills Disc Golf Course

Great news for Cache Valley Disc Golf! If you’re wondering where the Fairgrounds baskets are, they’re currently set up at the Sherwood Hills Golf Course (that place between Brigham City and Cache Valley) for  the Pureline Tournament on Saturday. We’ve had a chance to play disc golf at this course the last few days, in preperation, and the course management has been so impressed they are considering making disc golf a permanent option! They’ve requested the baskets remain through Wednesday. If you want to see a permanent course at Sherwood Hills, please go play the course. The cost to play is currently $10 a round.

2016 Cache Valley Classic Rules

General Rules: At the end of the players meeting starting holes will be assigned — but the round will not begin until the official signal. Once the TD is ready to play a “2 minute” call will be yelled throughout the course. After two minutes, the call will be made to officially begin your tournament round. Out of Bounds— When your disc lands in a spot that is designated as out of bounds by the course rules, you must take your next shot from the last place your disc was in-bounds and take a one stroke penalty.  If in question, use group consensus.  You may place your mini marker 1 meter in from the out of bounds line.  You must have both feet in-bounds to make your throw.   If any part of your disc is touching an in-bounds line, you are still in.  Your disc must be completely surrounded by out-of-bounds area to be out.  In the case the out of bounds line is marked by flags with no paint line, use your best eye-judgement and group consensus. Mandatory Arrows—  Some holes have mandatory markers on certain trees.  They are arrows that point which direction your disc needs to go around the tree.  A spray paint line will be on the ground on the wrong side of the mandatory.  If your disc crosses this plane, you must take a one stroke penalty and then throw from the drop zone, which, on this course, is always next to the marked mandatory tree.  If your disc travels out of bounds before it crosses a mandatory line, you must play your disc from the last place it was in-bounds.  So you would get a one meter relief from that spot, and you still must play the mandatory.  (This comes into play mainly on holes 3 and 9.) After the round is done. Add your score card, have someone double check your score card, initial your score card and turn it in to the tournament directors. A two stroke penalty will be assessed to any miscalculated score cards. Hole by Hole Rules Hole 1: Pavement and beyond and water OB. Mandatory right (Drop zone to the right of the mandatory sign). Mandatory arrow is 273 feet from tee pad. Hole 2: Pavement and left of painted line down the left side are OB. Hole 3: Pavement and left of painted line in the field OB. Mandatory left. (If you miss the mandatory and your disc crosses back in bounds behind the mandatory, throw from the designated drop zone by the mandatory sign. If your disc never came back in bounds, take it where it...
