Ann Morrison Memorial Park
Pre-register before July 29 to guarantee your discraft ACE RACE player package*
Registration : 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Tee Off : 1:00 pm
* Only a limited number of packages available! We will order a limited few extra player packs, but they are always taken early. Every year, we have had to turn golfers away that did not reserve a player pack.
Format: Two rounds of 20 holes, one throw per hole per player.
Course layout: Holes are generally between 100 and 200 feet.
Entry fee: $25
Player package: Two identical Discraft discs, plus a SuperColor mini and a Discraft hat. A $55 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.
Groups of up to eight players are generally acceptable, depending on course,
time of day and TD discretion. Each player should have their own scorecard and
mark "A" for aces 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 40 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 is a Discraft
merchandise package, including a bag and ten premium discs. Events are also
encouraged to offer an optional cash side pot for those who wish to participate,
which is divided proportionally among the number of aces and/or metal hits.
Background: The Ace Race is an annual event sponsored by Discraft, and is open to all golfers. This is not a tournament, but a fundraiser for GSDG to help buy stolen baskets, improve the course, help put on better disc golf events, help with club championships, help buy liability insurance for all club events.
This is a great event for all amateurs, beginners, women, kids, seniors, and YOU!
