About this tournament

Camp Kon-O-Kwee 129 Nagel Road, Fombell, PA 16123

A bi-annual disc golf retreat with club members from PA/OH/WV/NY/MD to collaboratively strategize ways to grow the sport. Day and Night disc golfing and top rate accommodations in a beautiful setting will stir the mind and body.

Our vision for the weekend is to promote equity in our disc golf community, strengthen the leadership and membership of our clubs, and provide fun, competitive formats for disc golf play.

Saturday morning and afternoon features a 48-hole team Throwdown tournament using an Ideal roster of 4 players from the same club -- 1 open player, 1 woman player, 1 master aged (40+) player and 1 Rec (<899 rated) player.

Round One: Singles. The board will be sorted randomly by division with no two players from the same team on the same card. A team’s first round Singles scores will be combined. The accumulated team score will be adjusted by their team handicap.

Round Two: Alternate Drive/Best Shot Doubles. A team’s Woman/Rec and Master/Open players will be partners. Pairs decide which partner will tee off for the team on the first hole and then alternate tee shots for rest of the round. Best shot format after the drive.

Second round groupings will be determined by adjusted first round scores with no two pairs from the same team on the same card. If tied after the first round, the team with the lower rating will be put on the higher card.

Total: Combined team score of the singles and doubles +/- handicap will determine the Overall winner.

Throwdown Handicap System
An “Ideal” team is made up of one player from each of the following divisions: Woman, Rec <899, Master 40+, Open. We have set the “scratch” team rating at 3600 (Open 970 + Master 930 + Woman 830 + Rec 870 = 3600). One stroke for each 10 points will be used for the handicap factor. Decimals .5 and above rounded up to whole number.
Ideal teams whose roster members’ combined player ratings are below 3600 will have their team score reduced by 100% of the difference between the team’s combined rating and the scratch team rating. Ideal teams rated higher than 3600 will have their scores increased by 75% of the difference between their team rating and the scratch rating.
“Less-Than-Ideal” teams whose roster members’ combined player ratings are below 3600 will have their team score reduced by 75% of the difference between the team’s combined rating and the scratch team rating. Less-than-Ideal teams rated higher than 3600 will have their scores increased by 100% of the difference between their team rating and the scratch rating.
Players who do not have an established PDGA rating will be assigned a rating based on league averages or average score relative to other team members.

Team A Example: Woman = 840, Rec = 765, Master = 895, Open = 945; Team A rating = 3445. Team A is Ideal and their rating is below the scratch, so 3600 – 3445 = 155 handicap. With a ten-point factor (155/10=15.5), the handicap would be 100% of 16. Therefore, Ideal Team A would have 16 strokes deducted from their combined score for the first round and 8 strokes deducted from their combined doubles team scores for the second round.

Team B Example: Woman = 935, Rec = 890, Master = 975, Open = 1000; Team B rating = 3800. Team B is Ideal and above the scratch, so 3600 – 3800 = -200 handicap. With a ten-point factor (200/10=20), the handicap would be 75% of 20. Therefore, Ideal Team B would have 15 strokes added to their combined score for the first round and 8 strokes added to their combined doubles team scores for the second round.

Team C Example: Woman = 815, Rec = 905, Master = 870, Open = 925; Team C rating = 3515. Team C is Less-Than-Ideal (Rec player over 899) and below the scratch, so 3600 - 3515 = 85. With a ten point factor (85/10=8.5), the handicap would be 75% of 9. Therefore, Less-Than-Ideal Team C would have 7 strokes deducted from their combined score for the first round and 4 strokes deducted from their combined doubles team scores for the second round.
