ACE Pot - Optional $5 ace pot will be collected. If no ace is hit, pot goes towards Holts Summit Disc Golf Course improvements.
Drinking Water - Bring your own water and refillable bottle! We will have jugs out on the course to top your bottle off, but don’t just rely on that. Bring water for Round 2 also!
Food - no meal provided.
If you can’t make Round 1 or 2, please text Chris at (573) 230-1158 !!! There will be no check-in for Round 2. If a player does not show up by the start signal, proceed without the player. If the player shows up later, record par+4 for each hole missed. If you do not notify the TD, you will be given an 888 and your rating will be affected.

OB’s & Relief - the digital scorecard has OB’s listed for each hole, and these rules apply at all holes:
Fences - The property fence is OB, it is not well defined in some areas, infer lines at any gaps.
Gravel walk paths are OB on the path or beyond. The edge is poorly defined in some areas so take a photo and play a provisional if needed. Each member of the group must state their opinion whether it is in or out.
Greater relief - A player may take relief from thorny bushes, thorny trees, or poison ivy, behind the lie and on the line of play, no penalty stroke.
If your disc lands entirely under a bridge or culvert you may mark your lie on the surface above, those surfaces are considered playing surfaces, unless that area is OB.
Casual Water - other than the pond near 16 and 17, all water water is casual. Take relief behind your lie on the line of play, no penalty stroke.
The Pond at 16 & 17 is OB for all holes. The inner edge of the sidewalk is the OB line, the sidewalk itself is safe. Play where it went out. Use Drop Zones at 16 & 17 if the disc did not cross in bounds on the other side, or if you want to skip the tee shot and add two strokes.
Playoffs for First Place Only - If there is a tie for first place when all scores have been finalized on the PDGA event page, start at hole one with a sudden-death playoff. Holes 1,2 and 3 loop. Flip for who tees first on hole one, then alternate each tee afterwards.
Payouts - Open payouts will be paypal, notify the TD if you prefer cash. All Amateur division payouts will be handled by Grow and Throw on site. Vouchers must be turned in on the day of the event! Make sure to find out whether you cashed before you leave, especially MA2 and MA3! Projected payouts are posted and will update automatically as registration fills.
Newbies, listen up! - This is a PDGA Sanctioned event, we will be playing by the PDGA rules. If you are unfamiliar with the rules, here are a few important ones:
No practice throws during the round - From the two-minute warning until your last putt of the round, a player receives one penalty throw for making a practice throw. A drop is not a practice throw, neither is a throw that is made either to set aside an unused disc or to return a disc to a player and that travels less than five meters in the air.
No falling putts - If you are within 10 meters of the basket (32’-10”), after having released a putt, the player must demonstrate full control of balance behind the marker disc before advancing toward the target. A player who fails to do so has committed a stance violation and receives one penalty throw.
Lost disc - A disc is declared lost if the player cannot locate it within three minutes after having arrived at the area where it is thought to be. Any player in the group may begin the timing of the three minutes, and must inform the group that the timing has begun. All players in the group must assist in searching for the disc. Failure to do so is a courtesy violation. A player whose disc has been declared lost receives one penalty throw. The next throw is made from the previous lie.
Rulings - Officiate yourselves as a group. Each player must state an opinion, majority rules, 50/50 vote goes to the player’s favor. Declare a provisional and play it both ways if applicable, and discuss it with the Tournament Director immediately after the round.
