Binghamton's new 18 hole, 4,560-feet, par-58 disc golf course runs throughout the East Campus wooded areas. The course features a variety of hole distances and settings, which will prove to be challenging for beginner and advanced players alike.

Teeing off

The first tee box is located in the wooded area just south of the Recreation Center (next to the footpath).

Scorecards and disc sets are available for check-out to students, faculty and staff at the Rec Center front desk during building hours. Players are also welcome to use their own discs to play.

  • Each hole begins at the tee
  • Subsequent throws are made from where the disc comes to rest (lie)
  • Hole is finished when disc is supported by chains or basket
  • Player farthest from target throws first
  • Lowest score from previous hole tees off first

Basic Rules of Play

  • At least one foot on tee for first throw
