About this tournament

Attention all participants: There is a good chance that people will stick around for random draw doubles in the afternoon following the Ace Race. This is something that we have traditionally done, and it sounds like people are interested in doing it again this year. You are welcome to use your Ace Race discs for this, but it is not required so if you are interested in playing doubles in the afternoon, remember to bring your own discs. Tee-off is generally an hour or so after the conclusion of the Ace Race. It is usually $5 pay-in to play, but this is not required. More information on this will be announced on the day of the event.

Entry fee: $25

You may cashless pre-register by using the Talk section here or pay at Shore Acres League night on Tuesday nights between 5:00 and 6:00. Email or send a message to the TD if you want to use Paypal or credit card to make payment. In order to guarantee being able to play on the day of the event, we are encouraging people to not only pre-register, but to pre-pay. We will use the pre-registration list in order to estimate the number of players packs needed. Having people pre-pay for the event helps us to get a better estimate of how many players packs to order and guarantees your spot on the day of the event. If you pre-pay and are not able to make the event, we can make arrangements to get your players pack to you.

If you cashless pre-register, you must check in by 9:15 on the day of the event or you may lose your spot. After 9:15 on the day of the event, registration will be first come, first serve. Anyone who cashless pre-registers and no shows on the day of the event will be put on a "naughty list"and this may negatively impact your opportunity to register for future events hosted by Shore Acres Disc Golf Club.

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.
