This document will cover DDC events sanctioned as C tiers by the Professional Disc Golf Association. We at Dynamic Discs Carrollton want to provide the best tournament experience possible to all competitors involved. We pledge to follow all PDGA rules and regulations as well as enforce them to the best of our abilities. Creating the best possible atmosphere for fair competition is our number one priority. If you have questions regarding any of the tour standards we have put into place, please email [email redacted]. We appreciate our patrons, our supporters, our competitors, our sponsors, and the entire Disc Golf family.

2023 Dynamic Discs Texas Flex Start C Tier Standards

Dynamic Discs Flex Start C Tier Template

Dynamic Discs Flex Start C tiers are built to accommodate players who want to play competitively without the expense, stress, scheduling conflicts or intimidation of larger tournaments. These events allow you to play at your own convenience between the times allotted for each event. Flex Start C tiers consist of only one round. In most cases these events are on an 18-hole course/layout and all divisions play the same layout unless otherwise specified. The hours vary, but most events allow competitors to tee off anytime from 8AM-3PM during the winter months and 9AM-6PM during the majority of Daylight Savings Time. Location, course difficulty, and time of year are the deciding factors in the planning process and are subject to change from week to week.

The cost per player is $20.00 if the participant is a current PDGA member. An optional Ace Pot is available for $5.00 more. The ace pot which accompanies each event rolls over to the next flex start C Tier event if an eligible hole-in-one is not hit. Once the ace pot grows to $1000.00, it is capped and a back-up ace pot begins. Only participants who paid the optional $5.00 are eligible for ace payout in the instance they hit a hole-in-one. If paid in, the optional $5 allows for any participant to collect the total ace pot if a hole-in-one is carded.

Any person may compete in a sanctioned DDC Flex Start event. Competitors must be current PDGA members or pay an additional $10.00 fee to become a temporary member for each event sanctioned by the PDGA. Participants are then eligible to compete in any division for which they qualify based on age, rating, gender and class (professional or amateur). The $10.00 PDGA fee for non-members is waived for youth competitors in any Junior division for C Tier events. Flex Start events do not award trophies nor do they offer a player’s package.

Scores and registration are uploaded to PDGA.com periodically throughout each sanctioned Flex Start event so competitors and the general public alike may follow ratings, participation, and final results.

II. Tournament Registration

Registration for Dynamic Discs Carrollton Flex Start C Tier sanctioned events can be done onsite the day of the event with CASH ONLY or online through DiscGolfScene.com when applicable. The event capacity is 250 competitors. Flex Start Friday events do not provide player packs to amateur players.


II. Tournament Registration (cont’d)

There is no waitlist and no minimum participation for any division. The cost of the event is the same for all divisions unless specified otherwise for a specific event. Players may only register onsite on the day of the event if they are paying CASH or register online at DiscGolfScene.com. We will not accept paypal, venmo, cash app, or apple pay or credit cards for tournament registrations onsite or in person.

III. Withdrawals and Refunds

Once a player begins his/her round, there will be no refunds given for any reason. If a player has to quit due to injury, illness, or an emergency during their round, a score of 999 will be assessed for not finishing the event as long as the Tournament Director is notified. If a player walks off the course in the middle of their round and fails to tell the Tournament Director or any of the tournament staff, the player will receive an 888. Communication is key so DDC can better serve you.

IV. Event Check-In

Check-in for a Flex Start C tier is complete once a competitor registers onsite or verifies their pre-registration on DiscGolfScene.com with the Dynamic Discs staff onsite.

V. Grouping and Sectioning of Divisions

Dynamic Discs Flex Start C Tiers do not have a set minimum of participation for any division. Players may choose the individuals they play with. Players in different divisions may compete on the same card. This will happen often, especially when competitors are waiting to be placed in a group to begin play. The minimum number of players needed to start a round is THREE (3) and the maximum is FOUR (4) unless otherwise specified by the Tournament Director before the event begins. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PLAYERS IN ONE GROUP.


VI. Rules of Disc Golf/Competition

Please refer to the Professional Disc Golf Association’s Competition Manual and the Official Rules of Disc Golf for all sanctioned events hosted by DDC. These rules will be enforced to the fullest extent at each sanctioned event. For the safety, fairness, and integrity of the sport, it is necessary that all competitors are accountable for their own actions. Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated.

VII. Ties Broken

Ties for first place in any division will be broken with sudden-death play involving the players affected by the tie as long as all parties are present. Sudden-death play will begin on hole one unless otherwise stated by the Tournament Director. If all parties are not present for a tie breaker, all parties involved in first place ties will receive first place. Winnings for first place ties at Flex Start events will always be split evenly between all finishers with the same score.

In the event the tournament is called due to dangerous conditions, first place ties will not be broken and all competitors currently tied for first place will be considered co-champions assuming there is no option to continue/complete play.

VIII. Distribution of Tournament Winnings
Tournament reports will be submitted on Monday following any Friday, Saturday, or Sunday event. CASH winnings for Professionals will be sent out on Monday before 6PM CDT (as long as it does not fall on a holiday, federal or otherwise) following any Friday, Saturday or Sunday event. This will be handled via PayPal. If the recipient does not have a paypal account, DDC will hold winnings until the individual can receive payment. Winnings not redeemed within 6 months will be relinquished by the player.
Merchandise winnings of any sort shall be claimed within six (6) months of the tournament date. Any winnings not redeemed inside of six months will be relinquished by the player. DDC offers payout onsite during each event and anytime during business hours at Dynamic Discs Carrollton. If a competitor wishes to use payout online, 35% of the total amount of payout will be deducted for this service.
Trophies - Trophies are not awarded at Flex Start C Tiers
IX. Dynamic Discs Texas COVID Policies and Waiver

In order for events to take place and proceed in the safest manner possible, participants need to consider and follow these safety measures:
Social distancing of at least 6 feet apart from others is encouraged.
Masks are encouraged to be worn when this 6-foot policy cannot be adhered to.
Do not touch anyone or anyone else's property (discs included).
Do not crowd the tournament staff at any point.
We ask anyone who shows any symptoms associated with COVID-19 or other sickness not to participate or attend any event. This is for your own safety, the safety of volunteers, the Dynamic Discs staff, and everyone else involved.

As a tournament player it is your responsibility to know the rules of disc golf before competing in a sanctioned event. Please be responsible and know the formats/layouts and daily schedule before arriving at the event.

Water Stations on Courses:
Water on the courses is for you, the player.
Our suggestion is to designate one person on your card to dispense water for everyone after following the protocol above.

As tournament/competitive/recreational players it is our responsibility to adhere to park rules, COVID-19 standards and precautions, and to the welfare of others. Please keep sidewalks and paths clear of bags/carts. Pedestrians always have the right-of-way. Even though these events are official, and we have exclusive use of the courses, these are public parks. We DO NOT kick people out or tell them they cannot play the course. We DO tell them what is going on and give them all of the information needed to make sure there is little or no issue. In all cases these situations tend to work themselves out. As tournament players I feel it is our duty to be positive and informative towards others regardless of being a part of a paid tournament. All in all, we should be respectful and kind to everyone we come in contact with.


Event Participant COVID-19 Waiver
Participants understand that participation in this event carries with it risk of injury or death and I, on behalf of myself, my heirs, administrators, executors, and assigns expressly release, forever discharge, and hold harmless any 2023 event hosted by Dynamic Discs Lewisville, LLC., Steven Storrie, Cody Jenkins, Dynamic Discs Lewisville, LLC. and its staff, Dynamic Discs, Latitude 64, Westside Discs, all municipalities and organizations in relation to the event including their officers, agents, and employees, and the Professional Disc Golf Association from all personal injury, loss, damage to property, or death in connection with my participation in this event.

Further, I understand and acknowledge that I am participating in this event at my own risk, that any safety precautions designed to protect against the spread of COVID-19 undertaken by the Releasees does not guarantee I will not contract COVID-19, and that, the foregoing notwithstanding, it is my specific intent to affirm my foregoing release of the Releases with respect to any personal injury, loss, damage to property, or death I may experience from COVID-19 in connection with my participation in this event.


X. PDGA Digital Scorecard for 2023

We will not use physical paper scorecards as the official scoring outlet for PDGA events unless cellular service is not strong enough. Physical scorecards will be utilized as a backup. Two forms of scoring must be used according to PDGA rules. In order to review this method and familiarize yourself with the process, please follow this link: PDGA Tournament Manager Help: PDGA Digital Scorecard

To start your round with digital scoring you will need to go to the following link: www.pdga.com/score. Below you will find easy steps to complete the process:

You will be prompted to enter the Access Code (not case sensitive) for the event you are attending and press the Submit button.
Search for your name. You can search by typing in part of your name or PDGA Number. Once your name appears, you select it and confirm. This person is now the “scorekeeper”.
You will be prompted to select the round for which you are currently playing.
The scoring screen will load with your name. The default starting hole is hole 1, so be sure to choose the correct starting hole if for some reason hole 1 is not where the group is starting (e.g. shotgun start).
Scores for each player will be automatically defaulted to whatever the par is for the hole that is being scored. The player can use the plus or minus buttons to add or remove strokes. When all players have the correct scores, clicking Save & Continue will upload the scores and the page will automatically reload on the hole that follows.
The teeing order is indicated by a number presented to the left of each player's name.

Paper scorecards are recommended and will be available anytime at tournament central for people to pick up as a backup scorecard for easier group verification. Players are encouraged to keep as many backups as they need in order to make the scoring process easier to avoid miscalculations resulting in penalty strokes.

Refund policy

Dynamic Discs Carrollton is responsible for all refunds/cancellations.
