About this tournament

Presented by In the Chains Disc Golf and El Dorado Disc Sports

The Dullahan (“dark man”) was a malevolent harbinger of death whose roots lie in Celtic mythology. He is said to be the embodiment of Crom Dubh, a fertility god who demanded blood sacrifice in the form of decapitation, his worship ended with the coming of Christianity to Ireland. Frustrated by the loss of his sacrifice, he still roams the roads, calling the names of those doomed to die, and carrying his head under his arm.

This is a non-sanctioned doubles tournament; however, we will be enforcing an amateur rating cut off for this event for PDGA members. This challenge is intended for fun and a taste of the true Doubles experience, not just an easy payday. Therefore, players rated above 935 are required to register in the Open field to play in this event. If one of your doubles team has a rating over 935, you must register for Open Team.

This Tournament is for the experience of playing a Doubles format that’s a bit more akin to what you’d find playing in a national Doubles event, but in a shorter time frame.

Sunday 10/31 - Sign-In at Cameron Park Lake Gazebo – 1 Round - 8AM tee times

• Holes 1-9 Worst Throw/Opponent’s Choice
The most challenging form of doubles out there is Worst Throw. When playing this, the 2 opposing teams get to pick which of your team's shots you have to take. Also both teammates have to make a putt before the hole is complete.
1. Teammates 1 and 2 (T1 and T2) throw from the tee. One lands in the fairway, the other OB.
2. The team's opponents choose the disc that landed OB. (stroke 1 + 2 with OB penalty)
3. T1 and T2 players throw from the chosen lie. T1 lands near the basket and T2 lands in the basket.
4. The team's opponents choose the disc that isn't in the basket. (stroke 3)
5. Both players make the putt from the chosen lie. (stroke 4: bogey)

• Holes 10-18 Tough Throw
This disc golf doubles format has all the same rules as Worst Throw with one exception: Only one player needs to finish a hole for the team to complete it. This means as soon as one player makes a putt, the other player no longer needs to. Additionally, if one player has a long throw-in or aces the hole, the hole is complete for that team.

The format is a little less brutal than Worst Throw and allows amazing shots to actually matter to a team's score.
