A disc golf course is a course to play Disc golf, also known as frolf or frisbee golf.

Disc golf is a sport in which players throw a disc at a target; it is played using rules similar to golf, usually played on a course with 9 or 18 "holes". Players complete a hole by throwing a disc from a tee area toward a basket, throwing again from where the previous throw landed, until the disc lands in the basket. Most disc golf courses are built in semi-natural environments, such as the edges of a park or other recreational areas and do not have a dedicated area like golf courses.

How to map

Disc golf courses often don't have a well-defined area like a regular leisure=golf_course. To add the whole course, the easy way is to add a node near the first hole or the map of the whole course and add all the information there. To add the whole course completely, add the ways way with disc_golf=hole for every hole. A hole should include ref=* to indicate which hole this is and par=* for the number of strokes normally required to complete a disc golf hole. Add disc_golf=tee on the node node at the beginning of the hole and disc_golf=basket to the node node at the end of the hole.

Add everything to a relation relation with type=disc_golf_course / disc_golf_course and add leisure=disc_golf_course and name=* if the course has a name. The hole as members get the role Role hole
