RPI Disc Golf Course (2013)


This course is a modification of a course created in the late eighties. It has many of the holes that existed in the old course along with some modified ones to adjust to the changing campus. Criticisms, suggestions, and questions are always welcome.

A big shout-out to everyone I've played with over the past 30 years!

Hole 1

Tee:  The section of sidewalk shown above between the Biotech building and Old School 14.
Hole: Red emergency pole at the corner of the Science Center.
Par:  4

Note: On this hole and every other hole containing an emergency pole, only the red metal part and above counts - the cement base is not considered part of the hole.


Hole 2


Tee:  Stretch of grey flagstones behind the imaginary line between the planters.
Hole: Grey circle of stones - your disc must come to a rest completely within the grey circle.
Par:  4

Note: If any part of the disc comes to rest outside of the circle, it doesn't count as finished. The border between the grey and red bricks does not count as part of the grey circle.


Hole 3
v

Hole: Emergency pole on way to library.
Par:  3

Hole 4


Tee:  Section of sidewalk shown.
Hole: Last chrome pole on the left in front of the EMPAC building.
Par:  3
Hazard: Island in center of circle. Add +1 stroke penalty if disc comes to rest on island.

Notes: If disc hits island but comes to rest outside, no penalty is assesed. When taking penalty, move disk to the closest part of the circle from where the disc lies. A penalty can be asessed more than once if a player is unlucky enough to land on the island more than once. If the disc is touching both the circle and curb of the island, no penalty is assesed.


Hole 5


Tee:  Anywhere on the blacktop.
Hole: Black lighting pole across island. Of the two visible, it is the closer one to the island.
Par:  2
Hazard: Island in center of circle. Add +1 stroke penalty if disc comes to rest on island.

Notes: See notes for Hole 4 concerning the hazard. The cement base of the lighting pole is not considered part of the hole.
