DFW Norml & Discraft present… The Ace Race @ Veterans Park!

Posted on: June 27, 2012


DFW NORML is proud to announce that we will host the 2012 Discraft Ace Race in North Texas!

Each Autumn, disc golfers from around the world gather at their local courses for one purpose: to throw aces! No putting, no approaching… just runnin’ at the chains. To add to the challenge and excitement, players all throw the same model disc: a brand new, never-seen-before Discraft prototype disc that is introduced each year especially for Ace Race.

All 2011 participants received a player’s pack that includes two discs, a mini, sticker and a golf bag valued at $50.

This year, Discraft will be including a Premium Reusable Water Bottle, Pair of UV Sunglasses, Vinyl Disc Golf Sticker, 2 Brand-New Prototype Discs and a SuperColor Mini Marker! Register by clicking here.

We will also be hosting a Bar-B-Q style picnic and Smoke-out at the pavilion near Hole #1. Pot-luck is the norml format but we also provide an appetizing selection of smoked meats and side dishes that are available for a donation of $5 to the organization. A keg is being provided and alcohol consumption will be allowed throughout the day, within proximity to said pavilion.

When: August 18, 2012

Players meeting @ 9am, Round 1 and Picnic begin @ 10am

Where: Veterans Park in Arlington, Texas

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

Course layout: Holes are generally between 180 and 250 feet. The range will vary to provide a nice selection of open and more-challenging shots.

Entry fee: $25

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 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.

Additional contests and games will be available to all attendees such as: The Ring of Fire, Longest Drive Competition, Closest to the Pin and the Longest Put Challenge. All proceeds go toward our non-profit organization and are greatly appreciated by All of our active members.

Prize package:
Grand prize for each event last year a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag and eight new discs. This year they’ve included a Trophy Disc! An optional cash side pot will be offered to those who wish to participate, which is divided proportionally among the number of aces and/or metal hits.
