The 1st Annual Delaware Disc Golfer’s Match Play Champions League will consist of a 40 person tournament which will be played out over the course of the disc golf season, culminating in a championship round hosted on Iron Hill Gold Disc Golf where a match play champion will be crowned.

This tournament will consist of a World Cup style of play beginning with a group stage where random groups of 4 players will be selected, and over the course of 3 rounds each individual in the group will play each other member of the group once at the TD selected courses. This will be known as the "group stage" (see schedule below) . Following the group stage there will be a 16 person single elimination "tournament stage".

IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO REACH OUT TO YOUR OPPONENT EARLY IN THE ELIGABLE PLAYING WINDOW AND KEEP TRACK OF YOUR COMMUNICATION AND TIMES GIVEN THAT YOU ARE AVAILABLE TO PLAY. IF A ROUND TIME/DATE CANNOT BE AGREED UPON THIS WILL BE WHAT THE TD WILL USE TO DETERMINE THE RULINGS.

Due to the currently low sign up, the tournament has been limited to a total of 16 participants. If the tournament does wind up filling up, the tournament has now been modified to have the group stage act as a way to seed the round of 16. Four groups of 4 participants will play the first three courses outlined and based on how many holes won over the group stage they will be seeded from 1-16 for the single elimination part of the tournament.

During each round of the tournament including both group and bracket stages, participants will play in match-play style rounds against a single opponent, where players are looking to win the greatest number of holes over the course of a full 18. A hole is won when a player records a lower score than their opponent on a hole and tied holes will be scored as 0 points, they will NOT push.

Tied scores at the end of 18 holes will be recorded and tied total scores at the end of the group stage will be tie broken first by head to head scores, second by most overall wins, and third a coin flip. It is for this reason that there will be NO concession of holes or matches. All holes must be played to their entirety.

If a player is determined to have been the participant that could not play a group stage round in the allotted time, they will be awarded no points for that round. If a player is determined to be the participant that was able to play a group stage round, they will be awarded the average points of their other two group stage rounds. IE If they got 3 points from round 1, missed round 2 and 5 points from round 3, their round two score will be 4 points, while the player who missed will get 0.


Participants will have 3 weeks from the date of initial seeding/grouping to contact their opponent and set up a time to play. Courses that will be played will be listed prior to the start of the tournament in the order that they will be played and layout if applicable to prepare. In all situations it would be ideal to play with an additional twosome for rulings but is not necessary. Out of bounds and course rules will be outlined prior to the course being played by the TD. If a player has any issues contacting their opponent or setting up a time to play, contact the TD to discuss. Ultimately in times of conflict or inability to complete a match the TD reserves the right to make all decisions regarding advancement in the tournament. Initial group stage placement will be random and all further seeding will be based on results. Strict disqualification will be in effect if there is any cheating.

Cost for entry will be $30 with all fees being paid out to the top 5 places in each division. The TD reserves the right to refund all fees except for transaction if the tournament does not reach 16 participants.
