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
2014 grand prize for each event was a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag, eight new discs and a Supercolor Buzzz trophy disc. Large events (150+ players, ask your TD!) will 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.

Course Work Day

We are having a course work day on March 11th at 9am to add more support to the tee signs as two of them were vandalized. This will help prevent them from further damage and add to the life of the signs. Bring your screw guns to help with this if you have them. We will also do a little more “trimming” on hole 9 as well as some cleanup. Also, bring any discs you no longer use as we will try to plan a disc swap. If time permits we may even throw a round! Hope to see you there!

Course Improvement Update

We got the ok to go ahead with the tee pad installation. So we are currently seeking quotes for doing 18 (10’x4’x4″) concrete pads on the course. If you know of anyone who does concrete for a living and would do a great job, please leave their contact information in this post. Thanks! We are looking to have this done in an April/May time frame. So if all goes well, we should have the tee pads in by late spring. This will hopefully improve the course and quality of play greatly! Thanks everyone for your continued support of Painesville Disc Golf!
