The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

At the Twin Ponds Course in Asuable, NY. on hole two. From the tee it is 225' over the southern end of the pond then another 125' thru a line of trees to the basket. The line of trees is just 35' short of the basket, so any drive between 225' and 300' has to contend with the trees. However, if you throw 200' to 250' more to the middle of the frozen pond you have a nice open 100' to a 125' approach.  Is this still OB or a bonus for freezing our buts off playing?

If that area has already been designated as OB then it remains OB. Water is not by itself considered OB, it could be casual as well. But once it is designated as OB that is permanent.

In Minnesota, we play "winter rules" where nothing that normally is OB is played as OB including roads or frozen water. In the case of landing on or across normally OB roads, players must play from the last point normally inbounds but without penalty. If they can stand on the frozen water, they can play from there. If not, it's played as extended casual relief where players can move back to where their disc first flew over water, frozen or not. Winter rules typically follow the actual season dates going from Dec 21 to March 21 (although all water on courses has been frozen for a a month now).
