Entry fee: $25
Guaranteed to be at least twice the value of your entry fee! The 2013 player pack includes two identical Discraft prototype drivers made especially for Ace Race, plus a Ti mini Magnet, 2 reusable scorecards/bag tags, 2 high impact plastic pint glasses, a can koozie and a tri-panel sticker. That's a $65 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. All players should have their own scorecards and mark "A" for aces and "M" for holes on which they hit metal. Scoring formats may vary slightly at TD discretion.
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 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, an approach-length closest to the pin contest is then used to determine the event winner. Scoring formats may vary slightly at TD discretion.
Grand prize for each event in 2013 is a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag and eight new discs, plus a trophy disc. 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.
