Disc Golf Participant Guide

Disc Golf Rules
Make sure you know the rules for Intramural Disc Golf. Teams will play one round of two-person best shot, and the team with the lowest score will be declared the champions.

Sportsmanship
Sportsmanship is a priority of the Intramural Sports Program at The University of Iowa. More information on Sportsmanship, including the detailed ratings system, can be found in the Intramural Sports Rules and Regulations.

Eligibility
To participate in Intramural Disc Golf, a UI Student, Faculty, Staff or Affiliate must purchase, or have purchased, an Intramural Sports Semester Membership, an Intramural Sports Year-Long Membership (good through Spring 2019), or a One-Day Tournament Pass. More information on these can be found on our Intramural Sports Membership page. The $25 semester membership allows you to participate in any sport/event this semester, as many times as you'd like, with the exception of the Intramural Golf Tournament. The $15 One-Day Tournament Pass will only allow you to play in the Disc Golf tournament. There is no cost to register a team, but team members must purchase one of these memberships to join the team. Team captains must make sure that all members of their teams are eligible for participation according to the Intramural Sports Rules and Regulations eligibility requirements.

ID Policy
All participants must check-in with a University or government-issued photo ID in accordance with our ID policy.

Forfeits
Registered teams that do not show up for the tournament will be charged a Forfeit Fine of $50.00. That fine will be charged to the U-Bill of the team captain. Learn more about our Forfeit policy.

Defaults
To avoid forfeits, teams may default. Learn more about our Default policy.

IMLeagues.com
Registration and roster management take place through IMLeagues.com. Check out our IMLeagues Registration Instructions for specific instructions on how to register your team, and make sure to pass it along to your teammates so they can join your team roster quickly and easily. 

Roster Management
Team rosters must have two players registered to complete registration. Players can be switched following registration, but teams must follow roster addition and removal policies in order to appropriately add or drop players from the team roster. The team roster cannot be changed once play begins. 

Free Agents
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.

Event Location​
The event will be played at Peninsula Park Disc Golf Course in Iowa City. Use of alcohol, tobacco, and/or any illegal substances are strictly prohibited before, during, and after participation.
