The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Well I have A small dilemma That I could use some advice on .
Bryan Ohio's sunday doubles have been going on for A little while now and we get 4 or 5 people that show up every sunday but They A lower skill level then me and it's random draw and no matter what parnter i get he can be a very new player or what not I still win which isn't a bad thing for me but we only payout top winners because the entry is so low and i asked the others what they thought about raising it so i can payout top 2 or 3 and no one liked the idea .
Today We had a odd number So i played alone with the intent to lose I missed putts that i wouldnt normally I didnt make it look like i was trying to lose but i was And despite everything i still won by one stroke .
I cant win every week I'm sure we'll start to lose people if it keeps up .
any suggestions on have i can adjust the payout or remedy this
this is how i have it setup as of now
3 entry ,1 for park park -2 for payout
1 ace pool optional of course
1 ctp optional after the round we pick a hole and you get 2 shots closes takes the cash ( i did this so everyone has a chance to win so extra money and dont go empty handed).

What I was referring to was a game we play around here in Chico. Basically, each player is betting one dollar on the best score for the front nine, one for the best score on the second nine and one for the best over-all score; hence offering 3 opportunities to win money during one round. Does that make sense?

good idea terry!

you can offer your services as a guide, especially if your course isn't very clear.

But i wouldn't charge them 5 bucks, maybe 1 or 2

for mulligens, just put like a dash on the scorecard

and whenever they use it, just x it out

and again on the ace pool, we just put it on for some reason, i think its a good idea

i'd be crushed if i hit an ace and wasn't in the pool.

Take the money you win and put it in an envelope in your glove box. The next week, use that money to pay entry fees for the newer and weaker players. No one will mind that you are winning every time if you are putting it back into the league in such a visible way.

Maybe you could sell your services as caddy/adviser for the round, instead of playing? See if someone will pay an extra $5 to have you caddy, offer suggestions on shots, and in general coach them? That way you get more money and they get better. Of course, you don't get to play :(

BTW, for many weekly doubles that I know of, there is an ace pool that a dollar goes into each time and carries over if no one wins - and it's part of the entry fee. We used to cap it at $100, so if it got larger than $100 a winner still only got $100.

i do like the mulligen idea but how do you keep track of them and know who has one and all that stuff ,and the ace pool thing i make it clear that you should always enter ace pool because you never know when you'll hit one and from there it's their choice

alright, i didn't know about the extra 9 holes you wanted, we had that same problem, so here was our money solution and it worked for us

we usually have 6-12 people showing up

5 dollars to enter, 1 to ace fund, 3 to pot, and 1 to club/course fund

then, if they want, 1 dollar for mullegan (also goes to club/course fund) and 1 dollar for CTP

we managed to get our extra 9 baskets, but no concrete tees for them yet

also, we have saturday games that is a handicap format instead of doubles

so its easier to make money for baskets.

and I don't think an ace pool should be optional, because what if someone is having a great day and they nail an ace, but they aren't in the pool? they might be so upset they'd quit coming for disc golf.

good luck

well bogiewon thats the thing i'm the int. player and everyone else is rec and more people have been coming 4 or 5 or just people that always show up we have got up to 10 people
and what do you mean by best front and best back
and kyle that wouldn't work because the whole reason I run doubles is for the course improvement fund as my course is in not so good shape and we're trying to convice the park board to add nine more holes and the mulligen thing would confuse things and ace pool should always be optional
Comment by Kyle Jacob Smalling on August 17, 2008 at 9:00pm
well man, first off

attract more people.

and here's my cost advice

5 dollars to play, 4 dollars goes to pot, 1 goes to ace fund automatically.

then have 2 dollars optional, 1 for a mulligen and 1 for CTP

and make it so that its fair, if it ends up 2 good people together and 2 bad people together, redraw!
