Register here: https://bit.ly/4bTHdzN

Rules and regulations:

This is a doubles tournament with the “best disc” format. Teams may be made up of any gender. We will have prizes for the top 3 teams. Open to anyone 13 and over. 

The cost is $20 per team. We only have 20 team spots available. All teams will need to check in half an hour before the start.   

1. Both team members will throw from the teeing area. The team then chooses which of the two positions to play from for the next throw. Both team members throw from the resulting lie, and the team again chooses which of the two positions to play from, and so on.

2. A team completes a hole when either team member completes the hole.

3. The score for a team on a hole is the number of throws for the lies that were played, plus any penalty throws.

4. If a team picks up a thrown disc before a lie has been chosen or marked with a marker disc, the team may not choose that throw. If a team picks up both thrown discs without a lie having been marked, the second disc to have been picked up is replaced to its original position as agreed upon by the group, and the team must play from the resulting lie.

5. If one team member is absent, late, or ceases play, the other team member may play, but no throws are made on behalf of the missing team member. A late team member may join play only between holes.

6. In the event of a tie we will continue to play until a team wins a hole. The tee box may be adjusted.
