Rules and Points


Cost of entry is $6 with an optional ace pot buy in of an additonal $1. Registration begins at 5:30 PM on a league night, refer to the events calendar for schedule. At 6:00 PM players are randomly assigned a partner and play begins. These events are CASH ONLY and players must be PRESENT in order to register.

The first time a player registers they will be asked which division they would like to play in. Divisions have no bearing on payouts or which partner they can be drawn with. Divisions only define who a player is competing against in the season long trophy race. Junior Division players must be <18 through the end of the season. Am players that win a divisional trophy must bump up to the pro division.

Rules of Play

  • You and a randomly chosen partner will progress through a double elimination 2-stage bracket facing opposing teams in a first to 15, win by two, contest where 25 feet seperate you and sweet victory.

  • Players are responsible for keeping up the pace of play and reporting for their matches promptly when called. The bracket is on display and availble via mobile devices through Failure to begin a match 5 minutes after the inital call will result in a forfeiture of that match by the team missing a player(s).

  • Teams begin play by performing a "flip" of a disc where one team flips and the other calls heads or tails. Winner of the flip will decide whether their team shoots first or second for the first round with the losing team going first in each subsequent round.

  • A player from each team, armed with two putters each, alternate putting at the basket whilst standing behind the shooting line. When each player has thrown their two putts, the round concludes and the scores for that round are added to the running total.

  • As the group stage and semi-final rounds take place within "circle one", no step, jump, or falling putts are allowed. All throws must be made from behind the shooting line and balance maintained until after the putter has come to a rest.

  • A single make results in 1 point. Making both of your putts in a single round, "doubling-up" nets your team 3 points.

  • Play continues with paired opponents alternating rounds until a team has at least 15 points scored and a 2 point advantage over the other team.

  • At the conclusion of a game, the winning team must notify one of the approved tournament directors or substitutes the final score of the match and which team won. The players are responsible for making sure the scores and winning team are recorded correctly.

  • The finals round will consist of a twist of the objective in some way including but not limited to an increase in distance, introduction of obstacles, a change in height or a modification of the basket itself.

  • If the final round twist results in the basket being placed outside of "circle one" (33 feet/11 meters) then step/jump/falling putts will be allowed.
