PDGA rules will be followed at best of your ability.
You will follow etiquette that includes NO fighting, yelling, berating, passive aggression, or any questionable character action. NONE of this behavior will be tolerated. You are expected to report incidents to a committee member. We will typically follow 3 strikes and you’re out, however we reserve the right to remove anyone for any extreme behavior on the spot.

Family or personal reason which involves immediate action off the course

Anyone who plays/throws during the round that’s not a member is considered a guest and must pay the $5. This includes any friends or children you may have brought with you. If they aren’t playing as a guest, then please don’t let them throw. It interrupts the pace of paying members.
Guests are $5 in 2021 and will be eligible for CTPs/LPs and $50 ace prize only.

We are open to all ages, genders, etc. we don’t discriminate against anyone. However this is an adult league and many of the members have kids and come to league to get free time away from their kids. If you’re going to bring children with you, arrange to play on a card that you’ve arranged ahead of time with permission from all of those with you. If that child will be playing, the $5 fee is required.

As in past years, players will accumulate points throughout the season based on how they perform against their handicap.
Due to the lack of preseason, points will not be awarded until week #3 in which points and achievements will be retroactively applied.
