About this tournament

Each Autumn, disc golfers from around the world gather at their local courses for one purpose: to throw aces! No putting, no approaching... just runnin' at the chains.

To add to the challenge and excitement, players all throw the same model disc: a brand new, never-seen-before Discraft prototype disc that is introduced each year especially for Ace Race. Everyone gets a player's pack that included two discs, a mini, sticker, UV shades and a premium water bottle... your entry fee is still only $25

Two rounds of 18 holes, one throw per hole per player.

Course layout:
Holes are generally between 180 and 250 feet (55 to 75 meters).

Entry fee: $25

You may cashless pre-register by using the Talk section here or pay at Shore Acres League night on Tuesday nights at 6:00. Email or send a message to the TD if you want to use Paypal.

We will have enough players packs for foursomes on every hole. Please pre-pay or arrive early in order to guarantee a players pack.

Player package:
Guaranteed to be at least twice the value of your entry fee! The 2011 player pack included two identical Discraft prototype discs made especially for Ace Race, plus a SuperColor mini, sticker and a sweet disc bag for every player. More than a $50 value!

Rules of play:
Players are required to use the player package discs, and only these discs. If a disc is lost, the player has the option of using the second disc from the package. Only one throw per player per hole. All players should have their own scorecards and mark "A" for aces (a hole-in-one) and "M" for holes on which they hit metal.

After all players in the group have thrown, discs are picked up and the group moves directly to the next tee. Players keep their scorecards for round two, using the next line on the card to record the round.

The player with the most aces after 36 holes is declared the winner. In case of ties, the number of metal hits is used as a tie breaker. If a tie persists, a closest to the pin contest is then used to determine the event winner.

Prize package:
Grand prize for each event last year was a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag and eight new discs. 2012 grand prize will be announced soon.
