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:

  •  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.

Dear Ace Racers, 

Thank you to everyone that travelled far and wide to spend the day with us at Brighton, I hope you all enjoyed yourselves and had an awesome time! Discraft will publish the name of the disc in the new year, once they've received feedback from all events and made final adjustments to the disc. Speaking of which, I would really appreciate some feedback from you. I want to know what your best moments were and how we can improve the next event? Any feedback is helpful, the good, the bad and the ugly, so thanks in advance!
