If you are in a position to help out, please consider paying it forward during registration by paying $40.
- No LAOUT Membership will be required to participate in all 2021 events
- Women’s UltraStar – only Ultimate discs* allowed; great for beginners and Ultimate enthusiasts
- Open UltraStar – – only Ultimate discs allowed; great for beginners and Ultimate enthusiasts
- Women’s Disc Golf – disc golf discs and/or UltraStars are allowed
- Open UltraStar – disc golf discs and/or UltraStars are allowed
*A Discraft UltraStar, Aria, Wham-O Frisbee or any other Ultimate disc is allowed; we simply call the division “UltraStar” instead of “Ultimate” so folks don’t think it’s an actual Ultimate league.
- Will be awarded to the top finisher in each division, for each gender, at each course; that’s a total of 20 available prizes!
- Each registrant may only win one prize though. In the event that a player finishes in first at multiple courses, then the prize will go to the next best player who does not already have a prize.
- Players register for either the Disc Golf or UltraStar division with the gender division they most associate with. The Disc Golf division allows all PDGA approved discs (including UltraStars); the UltraStar division is limited to, you guessed it, UltraStars.
- Disc Golf division players need 2 rounds minimum at 1 course to be eligible for prizes. UltraStar players need only 1 round at a course to compete for prizes. Players in both divisions can submit as many rounds as they want at as many courses as they want. If a player submits more scores than the minimum, then their worst rounds will be dropped.
- Players will be given a Google Form link upon registration; players will use this form to self report scores. Because we want this to be as accessible as possible, scores are submitted using the honor system; make sure to double check all of your scores before submitting.
- Players should follow indicated (either via arrows on trees/poles and/or on hole placards) “mandatories” (“mandos“) and out-of-bounds rules with each layout. If you’re not sure, ask someone; or just do you best! General scoring and continuation of play rules if you:
- Land out of bounds (frequently listed on hole placards as “OB”): 1) count that throw, 2) add a penalty stroke, then 3) throw from the last place the disc traveled in bounds before going out of bounds. (EXAMPLE – A player throws their drive from the tee pad into a lake 50ft away; the player advances to the edge of the lake where the disc last was in bounds to shoot their *third* stroke–having added a stroke for the out of bounds penalty.)
- Miss a mando (usually a tree or electricity/light pole; sometimes listed on signs as “M”): 1) count that throw, 2) add a penalty stroke, then 3) throw from right beside the object that was mandatory to go around. (EXAMPLE – A player is about to drive from the tee pad but notes there is a tree with an arrow pointing left; if the player accidentally throws their disc to the right of the tree, they will move just beside the tree to shoot their *third* stroke–having added a penalty stroke for missing the mando.)
- We highly encourage players to download the UDisc app (free on Android & Apple devices) to view course maps and layouts, get directions to course and the firs hole, and keep score on your phone.
- Play in groups of 4 or less
- If you or your group seems to be playing slower than groups behind, offer for them to “play through” so you all can continue without feeling rushed or slowed; if your group is playing faster than a group ahead, consider politely asking if you can play through
- Be mindful that sometimes disc golf courses simply have a lot of groups stacked up and playing through might not be appropriate as each group is waiting for the group ahead
- If there is a group behind that can’t see the basket from the tee pad, make sure to yell, “Clear on hole #_!” when your group has finished and safely moved away from the basket
