Our layout is very fair for players of all calibers. C'mon out, you will have a blast! YOU MUST PREPAY TO BE SURE YOU ARE IN THE EVENT! Rules of play: Players are required to use the player package discs, and only one of the discs provided the day of the event. 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 groups will have a scorecard and mark "A" for aces (a hole-in-one) and "M" for holes on when someone hits metal. After all players in the group have thrown, discs are picked up and the group moves directly to the next tee. We use an alternating tee box meaning if you tee off first on one hole you move to last on the next and the person who threw 2nd behind you now throws 1st. The same rotating format follows each hole thereafter. 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. We have had huge crowds in the past but the event flows very smooth and is over in a blink of an eye. I started keeping track of this event in 2007 with 76 players, 66 in 2008, 66 in 2009, 92 in 2010, and 116 in 2011, 112 in 2012, 159 in 2013, 165 in 2014, and 169 in 2015. What will 2016 bring? Prize package: Grand prize for each event is a Discraft merchandise package. Last years winner won a bag and eight new discs. 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. We have very unique prizes for not winning so be sure to post up if you will be providing a prize and for what the prize will be given for. The MCCG will donate 1 prize for the 1st Ace Hit. OH YEA: YOU MUST PREPAY TO BE SURE YOU ARE IN THE EVENT!
