Format: The tournament features three days of play, and multiple formats of doubles play. All players must be current PDGA members with Amateur classification who have passed the Official's Exam.

Everyone will play two rounds of Best Throw, one round of Best Score, and one round of Alternate Throw. Teams that make the finals will play Best Throw, Best Score, and Worst Throw.

Best Throw, also known as "Scramble," is the most common format for doubles in disc golf. Players always throw from the same lie, picking the shot they prefer each time.

Best Score, is similar to singles. Both players play their own disc and take the better score on each hole.

In Alternate Throw, players take turns throwing throughout the course. If one player makes the putt, the other player drives on the next hole.

In Worst Throw, players always throw from the same lie and take the worse shot every time. Both players must make their putts.
