BASIC RULES OF DISC GOLF


General Disc Golf Rules and Play
Disc golf is played like ball golf using a flying 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. Below you will find terms you will need to be familiar with.

Tee Throws
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.

Lie
The spot where the previous throw has landed, mark with a mini disc or leave the disc as is. Your next throw is taken behind your lie.

Throwing Order
After teeing off, the player whose disc is farthest from the hole always throws first. The player with the least number of throws on the previous hole is the first to tee off on the next hole.

Fairway Throws
A run-up and follow-through after release, is allowed, do not surpass the lie.

Completion Of Hole
A disc that comes to rest in the basket or chains constitutes the successful completion of that hole. A disc on top of the basket does not count as completion.

Un-Playable Lie
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.

In the case of excessive mud, puddles or to get out of harms way, you may back up on the line of play, up to 5 metres to establish your ' lie ' without penalty.

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 or rethrown from the previous lie. Permanent water hazards and public roads are always out of bounds.

2016 Wellness & Leisure Audited Financial Statement

The Wellness and Leisure Committee, in collaboration with its community partners provides and supports the development of a healthy vibrant community dedicated to promote activities and programs within its recreational and leisure services. The committee is committed to include all community members in its programming goals.

The Wellness and Leisure Committee held its first meeting in September of 2010. Previously, there were three boards which undertook the recreational activities in Shaunavon; the Recreation Board, the Jubilee Arena Board and the Curling Club. During the re-establishment of the recreational department, the Town of Shaunavon reconstructed its Parks and Recreation Department, making parks and recreation two separate entities and ascertained The Wellness and Leisure Committee as the new board for recreation.

The Wellness and Leisure Committee is focused on providing the entire community with recreational and leisure services. The committees mandate focuses on the wellness of Shaunavon’s residents and supports a healthy and active environment. The committee promotes community members to make positive health choices and to participate in physical and recreational activities.

Currently, Shaunavon recreational area holds a swimming pool, which was first re-opened in 1985. The swimming pool offers more than an escape from the warm summer months; learn to swim, fitness and recreational swimming opportunities are offered to the surrounding community. There are three ball diamonds which support the local slow pitch and minor ball leagues. Located in this recreational area, one can find washrooms, a concession booth and tennis courts. In recent years a skate board park has been added to this area.

The Town of Shaunavon launched the Crescent Point Wickenheiser Centre in July 2011. The center holds an NHL size hockey rink and curling rink, it is one of the biggest Center’s ever built in the South-West region of Saskatchewan. The Centre has been named in honor of Hayley Wickenheiser, who is said to be one of the greatest female hockey players of all time.

As an active community, the Wellness and Leisure Committee believes that all members have the right to a safe, healthy and active environment. The committee is working hard to ensure that this belief is present for each and every community member.
