All AM players will receive a player's pack that includes a custom-stamped disc and a long sleeve 100% polyester performance shirt (Juniors will receive a custom stamped disc). Players must choose their shirt size during registration prior to May 1st. After May 1st, players will get to choose from the sizes available during check-in but we can't guarantee we will have your size. Players will get to choose their disc from the options available during player check-in.

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

PAYOUTS & TROPHIES:

PROS - Cash payouts to the top 45% of each division via PayPal.
AMS - Scrip/store credit to the top 50% of each division to the Kayak Point DGR Pro Shop.

If there is a tie for 1st place in a division and both players are present, a sudden death playoff will be held starting on hole 1 on the course played that day. If both players are not present for the playoff, payouts will be split evenly between those who tied.

Trophies will be awarded to the 1st place winner in each division. If there is a tie for 1st place and a playoff is not completed, we will make efforts to produce additional 1st place trophies so all players who tied get one.

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

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. 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.

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

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.
