Disc Golf Basket

What?

What is Disc Golf?

Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc or Frisbee.

The sport was formalised in the 1970's and shares with golf the object of completing each hole in the fewest strokes or, in the case of disc golf, fewest throws.

A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the "hole". The hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is called a Pole Hole an elevated metal basket.

What is Match Play?

In match play, a pair of players competes against each other in an effort to win each hole during the round. The player with the fewest throws to complete the hole, wins the hole. The player who wins the most number of holes wins the match.

What is EAMP?

The European Amateur Match Play 2019 presented by London Disc Golf Community #EAMP is a local bracket conducted over 1 day. A local winner will be chosen by the end of the day.

All players can of course use their own discs during the event.

What's the difference between Match Play and regular Stroke Play? 

You complete for winning each hole, it doesn't matter if you win 2 shots to 5 shots, or 2 shots to 3 shots you still only win one hole and move onto the next hole. The person with the most hole wins, wins the match.

Match Play is exciting, because you make decisions based on what your opponent has done, not based on a total score against the entire field at the end of the round. 

You'll have to be able to think on your feet, and make quick decisions. You are guaranteed to throw some shots that you otherwise would not dream of doing in regular play, for example, running a putt 40meters away to save the hole.

What is the cost?

£40 entry fee = (£12 green fee, £25 player pack & £3.00 LDGC) Longest Putt, CTP (Closest to the Pin) & Longest drive prizes included too thanks to Ace Disc Golf.

Optional extras include:

  • PDGA Flex C-Tier: this gives you 2 extra rounds of 9 holes of disc golf with a PDGA rated round. Winner takes home a JoMez Camera Tee-Shirt or a JoMez Course Maintenance Tee-Shirt thanks to AceDiscGolf

  • Ace Pot: Cash split between all aces at the end of the day.

  • Merchandise: Visit the Facebook Shop for details. Order before the event and get the items hand delivered free of charge at the event.

Why?

Why Play Disc Golf?

  1. It’s probably more fun than you thought.

  2. A great way to meet new people and make friends all over the world.

  3. Low intensity exercise making it easy for almost anyone to join in.

  4. It is really easy to learn.

  5. Disc Golf is relatively inexpensive compared with many other sports.

Why Match Play?

Match play is an exciting way to compete as a disc golfer. Match play has grown in popularity and the unique format provides an opportunity for using a different strategy than what disc golfers typically employ playing traditional stroke play. The event also allows amateurs another opportunity to experience tournament disc golf at a higher level.

 

Rules

The EAMP – Singles will adopt the match play rules as set forth by the PDGA (which includes following all standard PDGA rules of play unless superseded by the specific match play rules): https://www.pdga.com/rules/official-rules-disc-golf/appendix-a

There are two exceptions/clarifications to these rules:

  • A.01.c.
    A pair of opponents plays in a group with at least one other pair, or an Official.
    Exception: During this event, another pair or official is not required.

  • A.06.b.
    If a pair of players is all square at the end of the round, the match is tied. The Director decides if and how ties are to be broken.
    Breaking Ties: TBC...

 

Format of Play

4 rounds of 9 easy beginner friendly holes. Each round of 9 holes you win, will promote you to the next level within the tournament. More than ever, every shot counts! The play that won their round will proceed to play another player that won and vice versa. Everyone will play 4 rounds or matches.

Players will be ranked based on their PDGA rating. 1 is highest and 16 is lowest. Players with no PDGA rating will be places after the lowest PDGA member.

The standard 9 holes layout will be in play for this event.

What are the rules?

Players are only allowed to use the three discs provided by the tournament director.

How do the discs in the player pack fly?

dynamic-discs-vandal-2019-trilogy-challenge-driver.jpg

Dynamic Discs Lucid Vandal

Speed: 9 Glide: 5 Turn: -1.5 Fade: 2

The Vandal flies like a longer Maverick, so it’s extremely versatile. Newer players will love the straighter lines they can throw, and players with more arm speed will enjoy it for easy turnovers or rollers. The Vandal is built to carve up any course with dependable turn and sneaky speed.

westside-discs-gatekeeper-2019-trilogy-challenge-midrange.jpg

Westside Discs Tournament Gatekeeper

Speed: 4 Glide: 5 Turn: 0 Fade: 2

The Gatekeeper wants to go right where you throw it, and it excels at holding angles. Even when thrown with power, the Gatekeeper stays true with a slight tendency to fade. With surprising high-speed stability and a comfortable rim, enlist the Gatekeeper to help you stay in the fairway.

latitude-64-keystone-2019-trilogy-challenge-putter.jpg

Latitude 64 Retro Keystone

Speed: 2 Glide: 5 Turn: -1 Fade: 1

A good short game is what ties everything together on the course. The Keystone is here to support you. It is beadless, has a deep rim and an understable flight path. With the Keystone you will get easy turnovers and straight flights even at low speeds. Build your short game on the Keystone and reach new heights!

I’ve never played disc golf. Is the Trilogy Challenge for me?

Yes, anyone can play. The most important aspect of the Trilogy Challenge is to get new players out to play disc golf and to have fun! Don’t be discouraged or nervous to attend a Trilogy Challenge if you have never played disc golf. This is a perfect opportunity to get started.

Are the three discs in the player pack approved for a PDGA event?

Yes, all three of the discs will be PDGA Approved by the time you play in a Trilogy Challenge and you will be able to use any of them in a PDGA event as soon as you receive them in your player pack at a Trilogy Challenge.

Formats and Rules

  1. Round - Modified Best Throw.

  2. Round - Alternate Throw.

Please insure you have read and are up-to-date with the PDGA Doubles and Team Play Disc Golf Rules.

Please find the link to the format and rules here: https://www.pdga.com/rules/official-rules-disc-golf/appendix-b

Round 1 - B. Modified Best Throw.

PDGA Appendix B.05 A. Best Throw and B. Modified (Best Throw)

  1. Both team members throw from the teeing area. The team then chooses which of the two positions to play from for the next throw. Both team members throw from the resulting lie, and the team again chooses which of the two positions to play from, and so on.

  2. A team completes a hole when either team member completes the hole.

  3. The score for a team on a hole is the number of throws for the lies that were played, plus any penalty throws.

  4. If a team picks up a thrown disc before a lie has been chosen or marked with a marker disc, the team may not choose that throw. If a team picks up both thrown discs without a lie having been marked, the second disc to have been picked up is replaced to its original position as agreed upon by the group, and the team must play from the resulting lie.

  5. If one team member is absent, late, or ceases play, the other team member may play, but no throws are made on behalf of the missing team member. A late team member may join play only between holes.

B. Modified Best Throw

1. Modified Best Throw is the same as Best Throw, with the following variation: The Director may set a limit on when the team may use each member's tee throw. The team receives two penalty throws each time that limit is exceeded.

The limit on when the team may use each members tee throw is two. Each team may only use one players tee shot twice in a row.

Event Coordinater - Olli Simonsen

Round 2 - E. Alternate Throw

PDGA Appendix B.05 E. Alternate Throw

  1. The team chooses which member makes the first throw on the first hole. Each team member then throws from the lie resulting from the previous team member's throw, and so forth.

  2. A team completes a hole when either team member completes the hole.

  3. The score for a team on a hole is the number of throws by that team, plus any penalty throws.

  4. A throw by the incorrect team member is a misplay and incurs one penalty throw. The throw is disregarded, and the correct team member throws. If an additional throw has been made after the incorrect team member has thrown, the team receives two penalty throws, and play continues.

  5. For any re-throw from the same lie, the same player makes the re-throw.

  6. The team receives a score of par plus four for any hole missed by a late or absent team member. If either team member withdraws or is disqualified, the team is disqualified.

Course Design:

The Inwood Camping Basingstoke Disc Golf Course is very wooded and technical.

As this is a brand new course, we will have rope between holes to guid you in the right directions. Once you’ve completed your hole, simply follow the rope to the next tee.

We guesstimate that scoring par (59) would be equal to a 930 PDGA rated round.

Search ‘Inwood Camping’ in the UDisc App to see the hole-by-hole layout.

Their will be 9 Discraft Chainstar Baskets and 9 Disc Golf Park Baskets, thanks to Basingstoke Disc Golf and MrFrisbee.

Brighton Ace Race 2018 presented by Sussex Disc Golf and London Disc Golf Community

Brighton Ace Race 2018 presented by Sussex Disc Golf and London Disc Golf Community

Player Pack:

44045988_167330310878863_4024044744697970688_n.jpg
  •  2 x Prototype Discraft Discs (4|4|-2|1 / -0.5)

  • Discraft Premium Hat

  • Discraft Lanyard

  • Discraft Premium Graffiti Towel

  • Discraft Snap Cap Mini

  • Discraft Vinyl Sticker

  • Discraft Pencil

  • All included with your entry fee! 


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 Discraft Ace Race is fun for everyone.

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.

I am new to disc golf. Should I be worried about being able to throw the Ace Race prototype disc?

No, in fact just the opposite. Ace Race discs are created specifically for this event, and are suitable for all skill levels to throw. And remember that the event is about fun, not competing against players with more experience. Every player's chances are virtually equal.

Ace Pot (£147.00) :  £2.00

Manchester Trilogy Challenge 2018 presented by Manchester Disc Golf and London Disc Golf Community

Manchester Trilogy Challenge 2018 presented by Manchester Disc Golf and London Disc Golf Community - Saturday 23rd June 2018


The Manchester Trilogy Challenge was organised and run by Alan Heckman and Oliver Simonsen and sponsored by London Disc Golf Community, Manchester Disc Golf , Cantor’s Food Store and UDisc .

In advance of the tournament, 48 player packs were ordered from Latitude 64 in Sweden all of which were sold. We had 43 players attending on the day, most of whom were playing their very first or second disc golf competition ever.

When hosting a Trilogy Challenge all the player packs must be ordered two to three weeks in advance, making it tricky to know the exact number of player packs and the correct t-shirt sizes to get. Therefore, in future, we encourage everyone to sign up as early as possible so as not to be disappointed when arriving on the day.


The 2018 Trilogy Challenge Player Pack Included:  

  • 1 x Latitude 64 Opto Musket (10|5|-0.5|2)

  • 1 x Dynamic Disc Lucid Patrol (5|5|-3|1)

  • 1 x Westside Discs Origio Burst Maiden (3|4|0|1)

  • A Trilogy Challenge T-Shirt (Size S – XXXL)

  • A Trilogy Challenge Burst Mini

  • A Trilogy Challenge Official Scorecard and Pencil

The Manchester Trilogy Challenge was held at Longford Park, which is open to the public and completely free to play. The course has two tee pads per hole, red for beginners and blue for advanced players. I thought it would be interesting to create a handicap for all new players to help level the playing field against the more advanced players, I did this by creating three different formats of play.

Beginners played from the red tees in both rounds. Open players started from the blue tees in both rounds while the Advanced division played the red tees in the morning and the blue tees in the afternoon.


Results:

The graph below shows the players ranked first to last along the horizontal axis and their respective scores up the vertical axis. Had the handicap not been implemented, we would have seen a greater divide in total scores across all four divisions. Having the handicap in place with the three different formats of play, the results show that most of the players are grouped closely together in terms of total score, except for three new players. The handicap was implemented to level the playing field and increase the chances for a non-open player to win the competition.

Lloyd Park Ace Race 2017

Lloyd Park Ace Race 2017

The UK 2017 Discraft Ace Race Tournament, organised and run by Derek Stoltenberg and Oliver Simonsen. Sponsored by The Cronx Brewery LtdDisc Golf UK and Disc Golf School.

We had an amazing turn out on October 21st with 53 players attending, of those 5-10 were new players and for a handful it was their first tournament. The event fee was £25 and everyone who signed up received a players pack worth £50, which included:

  • Two ESP blend prototype discs

  • Discraft t-shirt

  • Mini Buzzz

  • Snap Cap micro mini

  • Reusable disc golf scorecard

  • Vinyl sticker + Entry into a raffle

Many tournament directors (TDs) use Google Docs, however, we used DiscGolfScene.com to record all the registrations and recieve payments, this method we believe to be a UK first (Don't quote us on that). This was our first disc golf event that we organised. We can't wait for 2018 and the warm weather to return, so we can help grow the sport and spread the word of Disc Golf even more.

We had a dedicated photographer for the day and all the photos can be found on the British Disc Golf Photography Group.

If you want to get involved and give Disc Golf a go, please send us a message on any of our social media platforms or check out the LinkedInInstagramTwitter, Facebook Group and Page. Give us a thumps up, comment below and share this with your network.
