2013 Discraft Ace Race
Posted on: July 8, 2013
It’s time for another NORML Disc Golf Tournament!
DFW NORML is proud to announce that we will host the 2013 Discraft Ace Race, at Veteran’s Park in Arlington, 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.
This is the perfect chance to get outside, learn a new game and support a local, non-profit organization. Entry fee is $25 and you’ll get over $50 in merchandise!
Additional contests and games will be available to all attendees such as: The Ring of Fire, Longest Drive Competition, Closest to the Pin (CTP) and the Longest Put Challenge. All proceeds go toward our non-profit organization and are greatly appreciated by all of our active members.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.
When: August 24, 2013
Players meeting @10am, Round 1 and Picnic begin @ 10:30 am
Where: Veteran’s Park in Arlington, TX
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.
All proceeds go toward our non-profit organization and are greatly appreciated by all of our active members.
