Does it sound natural?
A: It's correct, but in most situations, a little unnatural.
If you mean to use a definite article "the", then it sounds more natural to say "stick to the cloth dartboard"; *unless* you mean a specific dartboard as opposed to a different one. In such case, the original sentence is the best and most natural.

With an indefinite article "a" both ways sound good: "stick to a dartboard made of cloth" and "stick to a cloth dartboard".
