If there is a tie for 1st place in a division, a play off will be held using an aggregate of certain holes to determine a winner. The player with the best score after the aggregate of holes are completed, wins.

Trophies will be awarded to the 1st place winner in each division. If it's a close race for 1st, we ask that those players remain present in the event of a playoff.

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

ACE POT:
This event is part of our rolling tournament Ace Pot which grows with each event held until hit, or it reaches the cap of $1,000, at which point a backup ace pot is started. Once the back-up pot hits $1,000, additional funds will be added to the first pot up for grabs until an ace it hit. If an Ace is not hit during this event, all Ace Pot funds will continue to roll over into the rolling tournament ace pot or the backup ace pot.

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

DISTANCE COMPETITION:
Friday at 6pm in the driving range. $15 for 5 throws to post your max distance (measured to where disc makes contact with the ground). Of the $15, $5 goes to added cash payouts for Pros, $10 goes to payouts for the distance comp. Top 2 distances split winnings 70/30. Paid via PayPal. Day-of sign ups also available.

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

ACE HUNT ON THE PITCH & PUTT:
On Sunday, before 5pm, play a round on the Pitch & Putt Course with a minimum of 3 other participants while only counting Aces. Take 2 shots off every tee. Turn in your ace count to the Pro Shop after the round and whoever hits the most aces in a single round wins 100% of the payouts (paid via scrip to the Pro Shop). Ties will split. Enter and play as many rounds as you'd like at $10/round. Day-of sign ups also available.

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

PLAYER CHECK-IN:
Player’s must check-in inside the Clubhouse at least 15-minutes prior to their tee time. Ams and Juniors can pick up their Player Packs then too. Players should also be at the tee for hole 1 a minimum of 5 minutes before their tee time to check in with the Starter.

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

PDGA LIVE SCORING:

Scoring will be handled using PDGA Live Scoring. Players will get the scoring passcode during check-in.

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

COURSE/HOLE NOTES:

Red & Gold Courses: Players may take up to 2 meters of relief in-bounds along cart paths where logs that line cart paths hinder a lie or run-up.

Red Course Hole 3: In the event of a lost disc in the creek that crosses the fairway, proceed to the Green Tee with 1 stroke penalty.

Blue Course: Players may take relief from brush piles or logs to the left, right, or behind their lie to the nearest point with safe footing without penalty.

Blue Hole 11: The line of rocks that marks the right side OB towards the green should be considered out of bounds (the rocks are the OB line). A portion of the disc must be left of the left/inside line created by the rocks to be in-bounds. If a disc comes to rest without any portion of the disc left of the inside line, it is OB. In this scenario, a player should take their lie at the last where the disc was in-bounds.

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

FOOD & DRINK:
Outside alcohol and food are prohibited on the property. Aces BBQ & Grill will be open from 9am - 2pm serving breakfast and lunch options, plus the Pro Shop has a variety of snacks and drinks including non-alcoholic and alcoholic options. Players who register at least 1 week before the event will have the opportunity to pre-order food at a discount from Aces BBQ during registration.

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