Discraft and Hellfire Disc Golf Club presents ACE Race 2013.
1( Each year, 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. Everyone gets a player's pack that included two discs and other cool gear valued at no less than $50... and your entry fee is still only $25!)*
Your $25 entry fee also includes a player pack that is always worth at least twice the entry fee! Last year's player pack included 2 discs UV Sunglasses, discraft water bottle and a vinyl sticker. The 2013 disc and pack will be announced this summmer. Stay tuned!
This is NOT a tournament, it is all for the fun of the game. $25 fee will get you player package including the disc(s) you must use during the event, in order to make it an even playing feild as possible.
Last years ACE Race drew 15,600+ players at 347 local events around the globe, this will be Sterlings first of many.
Two rounds of 18 holes, one throw per hole per player.
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.
Holes are generally between 150 and 250 feet (55 to 75 meters).
Grand prize for each event last year a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag and eight new discs. 2013 grand prize will be announced soon.
Putting Contest and distance contest included in entry fee.
Lets have fun and rattle some chains.
