About this tournament

SpAce Race 2018! Round 1:


SpAce Race 2018! Round 1 is an ace run tournament held at Horning's Hideout Highlands course. All courses at Horning's will be open for play on the day of the tournament (including the Highlands course, depending on the number of tournament players). Horning's Hideout has a 4$ day use fee.

For an ace run you throw from the tee trying to make a hole in one with no further throws to complete the hole. 2 rounds played consecutively, 3 throws from the tee per hole per player.

Bring your own discs to throw, with holes ranging from 100 feet to 250 feet. Holes #5 and #6 have alternate shorter tee pads, making the longest throw around 220 feet if you wish to play those pads. Double points for scoring from the regular #5 and #6 tee pads. For the Women's Division half of the 18 holes have shorter marked tee pads.

There are two divisions: Men's and Women's with separate winners and pay outs.


10 AM registration. 10:45 AM all player meeting/card formation. 11 AM tee off, 5 PM awards/payouts.


$15. $1 goes toward the double ace pot, 60 cents toward the series trophies, and $10.40 toward the day-of tournament payouts.


Play with your own group of up to 4 players (groups of 5 with one player playing as the "Fifth Wheel Fleet" -- playing for the double ace pot by themselves, is also allowed). Registered groups smaller than 4 players and individuals will form groups of 4 or 5 players during the playing meeting.


There are 3 types of scoring for each player on the scorecard, listed as follows. The prize money goes roughly 80% to the main Metal and Aces category, 10% each to the Constellation and Area 51 categories.

Metal and Aces:

The main scoring category (for cash prizes) will be 5 points for an ace, 3 points for hitting chains (one link grazed does not count -- at least two strands of chains!) 2 points for metal, 2 points for hitting the bucket on top of the basket, whether it falls off or not, and 1 point for a tractor beam shot (disc lies within three discs' distance from the pole without having touched metal).

Constellation Points:

A constellation occurs when your disc comes to rest within a disc's distance of another disc.

1 point: Constellation with another player's disc.
2 points: SpAce Invader -- when a disc comes to rest on top of another player's disc, by any amount. Both players get the points.
3 points: Constellation with another one of your own discs.
6 points: An Eclipse, which is when you SpAce Invader one of your own discs.
10 points: Full constellation -- when all 3 of your discs form a constellation with each other.
Chain Reaction multiplier -- For every 3rd+ disc that form a constellation add another point scored for each disc in the chain.

As usual, all Constellation points are doubled inside of Area 51!

Area 51:

Around the landing area for every basket there is a flagged off rectangular area known as “Area 51”. Each disc that you throw that lies in or breaking the plane of the flags scores you an Area 51 point.

Double Ace Pot:

The Double Ace pot is won when 2+ aces are made by a group on the same hole, both rounds of 18 included. If only one group hits the Double Ace pot once in a series round, 10% of the pot will go to each non-acing member of the group, with the rest divided evenly among the acers or to the individual who alone made 2+ aces on the same hole. If the Double Ace pot is not won in a monthly round it will carry over to the next monthly round. If there are no Double Ace pot winners in the final round, the pot will be divided equally according to aces in the final round.

18 groups of 5 for a maximum of 90 players (with a little leeway for some groups of 5).
