Disc Golf Important Information

  1. To participate in Intramural Sports, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase an Intramural Sports Membership. This $20.00/semester membership allows you to participate in almost any Intramural sport/event that semester. There is no cost to register a team, but team members must purchase the Intramural Sports Membership before joining/creating a team.
  2. Team rosters must have two players registered to complete registration. Teams may have up to four players on the roster, in case a sub is needed the day of the event. Once two players start the tournament, those two players must finish the tournament as no substitutions are allowed at that time.
  3. Before the round, all players must present a valid UI or government-issued photo ID to participate.
  4. Each team of two participants will be sent onto the course with another team, and will keep scores for both its own team and the opposing team.
  5. The release of fairway throws must be made with the foot closest to the hole on or behind the lie. A pivot foot is allowed from first picking up of the disc in-play.
  6. A run-up and throw is not allowed—the pivot foot must remain stationary until after the throw is made.
  7. A throw that lands out-of-bounds must be played from the point where the disc went out-of-bounds. Water hazards and public roads are always out-of-bounds while participating in the event.
  8. Any forfeit/no-show will result in a Forfeit Fine of $25.00. This fine is charged to the University Bill of the team captain.
  9. Each competing organization is allowed two team entries per points division (Men's, Women's, Co-Rec, Fraternity or Sorority) to accumulate points in the Intramural Sports Points Championship presented by Coach's Corner, but there is no maximum on the amount of teams that can register for an organization. The top two finishing teams for each organization will be counted towards the point total. Teams must designate their organization affiliations before the event begins. To receive Co-Rec points, each team must have a male and a female competing for the team.

  11. Want to play but don't have a team? You can join as a Free Agent on IMLeagues.com if you have paid the Intramural Sports Membership Fee, or you can join our Free Agent Group on Facebook to connect with other people looking for more players to form a team. Listing yourself as a Free Agent does not guarantee you will be on a team, although the Intramural Sports Office will help try to facilitate formation of a Free Agent team.
