It’s subjective. One player might be able to 2 the majority of holes on a course without reaching for a driver. That’s a pitch and putt course for them. Another player may struggle for 3s on those same holes, and not because of poor putting. Not a pitch and putt for them.

The issue is that we steal/take terminology from ball golf and it doesn't always relate to disc golf. This is one example. In ball golf, a pitch and putt describes a hole where you only need a pitching wedge to reach the green from the tee and then use your putter...pitch and putt. But the thing is....in ball golf, you would rarely ever use a putter to tee off (some trick shot players might do it.....but you will probably never see it in a real round). In disc golf, a putter is just a disc that is mainly used for putting, but can also (and is also) used for tee shots. So, in disc golf, there really isn't anything like a pitch and putt course as you could use a putter for almost every tee shot. Instead of pitch and putt, we disc golfers should use the term putter only course and even that is stretching it as some putters can go 200 feet or more (per Marshall Street's Flight Guide the Polecat - 1 speed - can reach 67 meters/219 feet). Instead of putter courses, putter only rounds is a better choice - but even 'putter' would have to be defined....are 4 speeds allowed? What is the 'high limit' for a true putter speed? I know someone who regularly putts with a 5 speed disc...that is their putter, would it be allowed in a putter only round?

I think we can appreciate that pitch n putt comes from golf while only adhering to the general idea when adapting it to disc golf.

For me, a pitch n' putt wouldn't only be the discs used, for example lack of drivers, but should also incorporate the idea that, more often than not, a standstill stance without a run-up necessary to reach circle 1/2.

Pitch n Putt course - (n) disc golf course easily negotiated with a single disc without a negative impact to score.
