Disc golf is usually played on courses with 9 or 18 holes which have been built in natural settings that require minimal maintenance. Beginner friendly holes are generally wide open and may measure approximately 200 feet long in contrast to advanced holes which are designed to include obstacles such as trees, elevation changes, water hazards, mandatories and out-of-bound zones and may measure over 1000 feet long. The best courses include multiple tee pads and multiple targets to facilitate all levels of play and also include different layouts to challenge players to make different types of shots (i.e. backhand, forehand, overhand, roller, etc.) to perform well.
