About this tournament

Good news everyone, the world didn't end in 2019! That means we get to do Luv Dubs again!

Luv Dubs is a co-ed doubles event created to open a space for everyone who loves disc golf. We want people of all genders to feel empowered to get out and compete on the same field. You are not required to play with a romantic partner. Just team up with a person of the opposite sex and have some fun throwing plastic together!

This is the fourth year in a row that we've been able to host this event, and it feels real good! Once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, three times is a floincidence and four times is just crazy! Am I right?



********************
Cost of Event
*******************
Registration cost for each TEAM is $40 (20 per person)

Registration includes 1 round of Putter Olympics and 1 round of Alternate Shot Doubles play. Each player will also receive 1 tournament stamped disc!.

***********************
Format and Rules
**********************

The basic format and rules will be the same this year as in years past. This is a non-sanctioned co-ed doubles event.

A Co-ed Team consists of two players of opposite gender. In this event, "Co-ed Team" means one person who is biologically male and one person who is biologically female. Please observe and respect that precedent.

Alternate Shot Doubles - two players will take turns playing from subsequent lies, starting with the tees-hot and ending with holing-out. A schedule will be in place to determine which member of the team will take the tee-shot for each hole.

Example: Player A is scheduled for the tee-shot. Player B then throws/putts from where the tee-shot landed. If the hole is not finished, Player A takes the next shot. Play continues in this manner until the hole is completed. The person who starts the next hole is determined by the tee-shot schedule.

Putter Olympics - this is a putters-only competition wherein players will play independently on a course consisting of putts and short approaches with one putter of your choosing. Points will be awarded for players in the following format:

3 points to every player who makes the putt
2 points to every player who hits metal
1 point awarded to the person closest to the pin if no one hits metal or makes the putt

Players with the highest points per card will be awarded a Bird Cage Voucher.

*************

***********************
Payouts and Prizes

Ace Pot will be paid out to whomever hits an ace during the event (excluding Putter Olympics). If multiple aces are hit, the pot will be divided by the number of aces and paid out accordingly. If no aces are hit, a competition will be organized to determine a winner of the ace pot at the end of the event.
