SCDGA 1st Annual DISCRAFT Ace Race
The Race Is On! At WILDWOOD
Each autumn, 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: in past years this has been a brand new, never-seen-before Discraft prototype disc that is introduced each year especially for Ace Race. All players get two discs, plus a hat and mini. Player's package is valued at $55, and your entry fee is only $25!

Rules of play:
Players are required to use the player package discs, and only these discs. All players should have their own scorecards and mark "A" for aces 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.
Prize package: Grand prize for each event is a Discraft merchandise package, including a bag and five premium discs second place three premium discs and third gets 2 premium discs. Optional cash side pot for those who wish to participate, which is divided proportionally among the number of aces and/or metal hits.
