Ace Race info for Players

Subject to change


August, September and October. Check the calendar for the Ace Race in your area... or run your own ace race! To run an event, see the TD info page.

Two rounds of 18 holes, one throw per hole per player.

Course layout:
Holes are generally between 180 and 250 feet (55 to 75 meters).

Entry fee: $30 (US), up to $45 (non-US)

Player package:
All 2018 players received two discs, hat, lanyard, towel, a mini and more! All included with your entry fee!

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. All players should have their own scorecards and mark "A" for aces (a hole-in-one) 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 Discraft Ace Race is fun for everyone.

The player with the most aces after 36 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:
2018 prize packages are still in development so stay tuned!

To sign up:
Contact your local Ace Race Event Director from the calendar page.

The history of the Ace Race prototype discs

Each year Ace Racers are the first players to ever throw a new Discraft prototype disc. These discs are always designed to be easy to throw and control. Only 2008's Nebula and 2011's Zeppelin have never been officially released outside of Ace Race. Here's the breakdown of the discs since our first year in 2003:

  • 2003: Breeze
  • 2004: Glide
  • 2005: Slipstream
  • 2006: Meteor
  • 2007: Impact
  • 2008: Nebula
  • 2009: Focus
  • 2010: Hornet
  • 2011: Zeppelin
  • 2012: Zombee
  • 2013: Mantis
  • 2014: Heat
  • 2015: Roach
  • 2016: Archer
  • 2017: Sting

  • Ace Race: Get Ready To Run It!

    What is Ace Race? Over 250,000 players have Ace Raced, and you should be next! It's a fun event that helps disc golf grow by introducing thousands of new players to the joys of the sport! Each participant gets a huge player pack of cool stuff, then everyone plays two rounds of disc golf, but instead of keeping score the only goal is to throw aces (also known as a hole-in-one)! Holes are shortened, and everyone is throwing the same disc: a brand new Discraft prototype disc that is easy to throw and developed just for the event. It's a blast!

    How to be a player: Go to the event calendar page and zoom the map to your area to find the nearest ace race. Click that event's icon to find the city and date information, then scroll down the calendar page to that date and find the contact information for your local event.

    How to be an event director: If you don't find a scheduled event in your area, you can host your own Ace Race! No previous experience as a Tournament Director is required. Ace Races are limited to one per community, so register your local event early. If you wait, someone could lock in the Ace Race in your town ahead of you. See the TD info page to learn more.
