About this tournament

Mineola Disc Golf Club 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 layout and all divisions play the same layout unless otherwise specified. The hours vary but most events allow competitors to tee of anytime from 8 AM- 3 PM during the winter months and 9 AM to 6 PM during the majority of Daylight Savings Time. Location, course difficulty and time of year are the deciding factors and are subject to change from week to week.
The cost per player is $25.00 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 at each event are eligible for ace payout in the instance they hit a hole-in-one.
Any person may compete in a sanctioned MDGC Flex Start event. Competitors must be current PDGA members or pay an additional $10.00 fee to become a temporary member for 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 player packages. Flex Start C-tier events offer 100% payout to all divisions.
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 MDGC Flex Start C-tier sanctioned events can be done onsite the day of the event or online through DiscGolfScene.com. The event capacity is 250 competitors. Flex Start events do not provide player packs to amateur players. 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.

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 MDGC can better serve you.

IV. Event Check-In

Check-in for a Flex Start C-tier is complete once a competitor registers onsite or signs up on-site.

V. Grouping and Sectioning of Divisions

MDGC 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 complete 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 and the maximum number is five unless otherwise specified by the Tournament Director before the event begins.
