HOW MUCH DISC GOLF?
Two rounds of 18 holes. Short lunch break in between rounds. Bring your own grub.
HOW DO I WIN?
There will be individual and team winners for both rounds of 18 separately, plus overall winners for both rounds combined. Top 40% make the money. First 15$ in winnings to each player paid out in scrip, anything above that paid out in cash.
HOW DO I PLAY?
Get ready for the world premiere of "Scared Square Scoring!" Scoring is a point system, not a stroke system. Aces are worth 10 points, birdies 5 points, par 2 points, bogey up to quintuple million bogey 0 points.
In addition to trying to hole out in the regular basket for points, each hole will have a 6'x6' red flag marked at the corners "Scared Square" on the ground somewhere short of the basket (generally). After your tee shot, you can elect to try and throw your disc into the scared square instead of going for a normal birdie/par. On a par 3, if your second throw on the hole is tossed successfully into the Scared Square (any part of your disc breaking the imaginary line on the ground between flags) you score 3 points, one more point than par, two less than a birdie. If your 3rd throw on a par 3 is in the Scared Square you score 1 point. If your first throw lands in the Scared Square you automatically score a minimum of 3 points, with a free chance to make a birdie for 5 points instead of the 3 points you already made with your first throw. less

Here's the formula I used to convert Scared Square points into strokes for results here, btw. I think it's fairly accurate for good rounds, and maybe a bit forgiving for not so good rounds. :) "Par-((Points-40)/3))" Where par is 55 and points are points scored in the format.

Thanks to everyone who came out and played the first ever Scared Square tournament yesterday! Overall it seemed like most players enjoyed the strategy options the format provided. I know I myself had seven "box birds" in the 2nd round alone, lol.
On a side note, I think I accidentally shorted the 2nd and 3rd place intermediate finishers, who I've contacted about settling up for 15$ more each, lol. Tired TDing = airheadedness on my part.

Regardless of turnout we'll do two divisions, but it may affect how teams are put together to balance them out.
