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 TD Info page.
Two rounds of 18 holes, one throw per hole per player.
Holes are generally between 180 and 250 feet (55 to 75 meters).
Entry fee: $30 (US), $30 up to $45 (non-US)
All 2016 players receive two identical Discraft ESP prototype discs made especially for this year's Ace Race, plus a high performance wicking t-shirt, a premium disc golf towel, reuseable scorecard, SuperColor mini, and a vinyl sticker. 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. 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 is a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag and new discs, plus a trophy disc. Large events (150+ players, ask your TD!) will also receive a CHAINSTAR BASKET as their grand prize! 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.
