Here is a rundown of some of the most important differences in the Rules of Disc Golf for match play:
In match play scorekeeping, each hole is a separate competition. The player with the fewest strokes on an individual hole wins that hole; the player winning the most holes wins the match.

The stroke total for 18 holes simply doesn't matter in match play. Stroke play is more a player vs. the course approach; match play is directly player vs. player, or side vs. side. There is one opponent you must beat, and that's the opponent you're facing in the match you're playing right now.

Conceded Putts OK in Match Play
In friendly rounds of golf, golfers often ask for and give "gimmies," very short putts that one simply picks up rather than holing out. Gimmies, needless to say, are illegal under the Rules of Disc Golf, but many recreational golfers use them anyway.

In match play, however, conceded putts are perfectly legal: They are part of the game, codified in match play rules. Your opponent can concede a putt to you at any point, whether it's six inches from the cup or 60 feet. But concessions almost always come on very short putts.

Conceded putts should only be offered, they should never be requested. That's why in some match play matches you'll notice a golfer lingering over a very short putt—the golfer is hoping his opponent will tell him to just pick it up.

In match play, any golfer can also concede a hole, or even the entire match, at any point.

COVID-19 CDC Policies for this event:

Older adults and people who have severe underlying medical conditions like heart or lung disease or diabetes seem to be at higher risk for developing serious complications from COVID-19 illness.

Know how it spreads

• There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
• The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
• The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
o Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
o Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
o These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
o Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.

Everyone Should

• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after
blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your
hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home. If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is
sick and other household members.
• Put distance between yourself and other people outside of your home.
o Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
o Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.
o Do not gather in groups.
o Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings.
o Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
• You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
• Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up
other necessities.
o Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is
unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
• The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
• Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
• Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
• If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose
with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
• Throw used tissues in the trash.
• Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean
your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Any Individual found to be deliberately breaking CDC guidelines for social distancing or playing in groups larger than four people will be immediately disqualified.
