sport disc_golf Node Area sports. Frisbee golf, a golf-like game with Frisbee (flying disc) (on Wikipedia)  


To mark the frisbee golf courses or other nodes/areas/relations associated with disc golf.


Disc golf course in Slottskogen, Göteborg. There are over a hundred frisbee golf courses in Sweden. It is fairly spread over the western world.


The usual sport-restraints shall be followed. "This tag describes which kind(s) of sport is/are exercised in/on some feature. Since this is a non-physical tag it should be combined with a physical tag"

Add a node Node tagged sport=disc_golf at the first tee, at club house if any or at the place renting/selling the discs. The whole area used for frisbee golf may be mapped as an area Area tagged as sport=disc_golf, preferably with another tag for the landuse (frisbee golf is usually in a park or wood and only in special cases at a single-use area.)

If it is an organized disc golf course with more than a few holes, it should be mapped leisure=disc_golf_course, see
