2023 Washington Park Pop Up - Flex Start C Tier Standards

HPDG's Flex Start C tiers are built to accommodate players who want to play competitively without the expense, stress, scheduling conflicts or intimidation of larger tournaments. These events allow you to play at your own convenience between the times allotted during the event. Flex Start C tiers consist of only one round. This event is on an 18-hole course/layout and all divisions play the same layout unless otherwise specified. Competitors can tee off anytime from 8AM-5PM.

The cost per player is $10 if the participant is a current PDGA member.

Any person may compete in a sanctioned HPDG Flex Start event. Competitors must be current PDGA members or pay an additional $10.00 fee to become temporary member for each event sanctioned by the PDGA. Participants are then eligible to compete in any division for which they qualify based on age, rating, gender and class (professional or amateur). The $10.00 PDGA fee for non-members is waived for youth competitors in any Junior division for C Tier events. Flex Start events do not award payouts nor do they offer a player’s package. Flex Start C Tiers division winners will receive a trophy.

Scores and registration are uploaded to PDGA.com periodically throughout each sanctioned Flex Start event so competitors and the general public alike may follow ratings, participation, and final results.

Tournament Registration

Registration for The Washington Park Pop Up Flex Start C Tier can be done onsite the day of the event or online through DiscGolfScene.com when applicable. The event capacity is 200 competitors.

There is no waitlist and no minimum participation for any division. The cost of the event is the same for all divisions unless specified otherwise for a specific event.

Withdrawals and Refunds

Once a player begins their round, no refunds will be given for any reason. If a player has to quit due to injury, illness, or an emergency during their round, a score of 999 will be assessed for not finishing the event as long as the Tournament Director is notified. If a player walks off the course in the middle of their round and fails to tell the Tournament Director or any of the tournament staff, the player will receive an 888. Communication is critical so HPDG can better serve you.

Event Check-In

Check-in for a Flex Start C tier is complete once a competitor registers onsite or verifies their pre-registration on DiscGolfScene.com with the Hyde Park Disc Golf staff onsite.

Grouping and Sectioning of Divisions

The Washington Park Pop Up C Tiers do not have a set minimum of participation for any division. Players may choose the individuals they play with. Players in different divisions may compete on the same card. This will happen often, especially when competitors are waiting to be placed in a group to begin play. The minimum number of players needed to start a round is THREE (3) and the maximum is FOUR (4) unless otherwise specified by the Tournament Director before the event begins. THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THE MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PLAYERS IN ONE GROUP.

Rules of Disc Golf/Competition

Please refer to the Professional Disc Golf Association’s Competition Manual and the Official Rules of Disc Golf for all sanctioned events hosted by DDC. These rules will be enforced to the fullest extent at each sanctioned event. For the safety, fairness, and integrity of the sport, it is necessary that all competitors are accountable for their own actions. Unsportsmanlike conduct will not be tolerated.
