About this tournament

THIS EVENT WILL BE RUN UNDER THE TRUE AMETEUR GUIDELINES SPELLED OUT HERE: https://www.pdga.com/td/true-amateur

PARK ENTRY FEES ARE INCLUDED IN THE REGISTRATION

84 players is a hard limit. Do not drive to this event expecting to play just because you showed up. This event is under time constraints so I cannot have 5 player cards at all.

Pre-pay only. No cashless pre-registration. If you'd like to pay some other way please email [email redacted]

SRDGC is now a 501c3 organization. ALL donations are tax deductible.

--------------------------------

COURSE SPECIFICS:
- As the name suggests, several holes will be designated as island holes. How many, and which holes that will be are to be determined. All island holes will not be true OB islands but rather "hazard" islands where landing outside the island is a stroke penalty and you play the next shot from where the disc lies. .
- We should be able to get out to the course by the Friday before (10/16/20) or earlier if time permits and mark all of the OB and islands. In any case, be prepared for a more difficult layout than the current course. Errant shots will be punished and accuracy will be rewarded.
- Currently, MA4 will not be playing the islands. MA3 will likely be playing one round with islands and one round without. Other divisions such as the FA divisions or any of the age-protected divisions can be determined the day of the event based on what those playing in those divisions want to do. MA1 and MA2 will be playing both rounds with islands and extra OB. This of course is all subject to changes and tweaks.

--------------------------------

DIVISIONS:
- Don't see the division you want to play in? Let me know! Feel free to email or post a comment on this event. I can add divisions right up to the day of the event and I need at least 3 players to make a division.

--------------------------------

PLAYER PACKS AND LUNCH:

- Player packs will be provided by Basket Bashers. This will include a dry-fit shirt, a disc and a towel. To get the size you want please register by 9/17. After this date there is no guarantee we will have the size you want.
- Lunch may or may not happen at this point. There are A LOT of expenses to this event so if we cannot get the food donated it may not happen.

--------------------------------

Ace Pool:
- $5 gets you entered into the ace pool and given the short nature of this course there is very likely going to be a few aces.
- The ace pool will be split evenly based on the number of aces and not who got what ace first.
- If there are no aces during tournament rounds then there will be a throw-off. Everyone who enters will get one throw. If there are still no aces then the winner will be determined by CTP.
