League Setup:
This is a PDGA league that will be played at North Boundary Park Disc Golf Course in a flex start format over a 10-week period. The entry fee is a fixed fee for the entire session and payouts will be at the end of the session based on overall points standings. Players do not need to show up for every week to win the league.

Please note, as part of the registration process, we are collecting donations to help put in additional benches, drainage ditches, and retaining walls. Though not required, your support would be highly appreciated. Please kindly add a donation during your registration.

What does Flex Start Mean?
Flex start simply means that you can play your round at any time on the Friday session from the appropriate tees listed under the schedule. We will not be establishing tee times and setting up cards for this league. Players should arrange tee times with other players. With that said, I will be at the course between 4:30-5:30 for the league to support any stragglers that have been unable to secure card mates.

What are the requirements?
This is a PDGA league. Meaning, your round will be counted and rated in line with the rating system of the PDGA. Players must play in a group size of 3 players for the round to count. Failure to do so will disqualify the players round and any points accumulated. PLEASE MAKE SURE GROUP SIZE IS AT LEAST 3 PLAYERS MINIMUM.

How do I turn in my Scorecard to record my round?
We will utilize PDGA Live Scoring for scorecards and round recording. There will be no paper scorecards maintained. All groups should ensure one player utilizes the PDGA Live Scoring app for their official scorekeeping, and a second player record the same scores as a back up to double check scores e.g. using UDisc.
Each group must have 1 nominated player to keep track of scores through PDGA Live scoring on their phone. Use the below link and Access code to set up your scorecard.

Live Scoring Instructions: After the player keeping score has entered the access code and hit submit, they will need to search for their name. The player can search by typing in part of their name or PDGA Number. Once their name appears, they select it and confirm. This person is now the “scorekeeper”.

As tee times have been assigned, the players with matching times should also appear automatically. If not, players will need to be added manually by adding a player and following the search procedure in the first step. The scorekeeper will be prompted to select the appropriate division, round, and then check the names of the players on the specific card they will be following. Once players are selected, click Continue.

The scoring screen will load with the names of each player selected from the previous screen. The default starting hole is hole 1.

Scores for each player will be automatically defaulted to whatever the par is for the hole that is being scored. The scorekeeper can use the plus or minus buttons to add or remove strokes. When all players have the correct scores, clicking Save & Continue will upload the scores and the page will automatically reload on the hole that follows.

The teeing order is indicated by a number presented to the left of each player's name.

Confirming Scores When Round is Finished
Once all players in the group has finished recording all the scores for the round, the app will switch to the card view and the group will be prompted to confirm their scores. This confirmation process acts as a type of "card submission" after the round. Players should be aware that this step is required once a round is completed.
The confirmation process works as follows.
- Click the player's name
- The player will need to type their last name or PDGA Number
- Review the total score and press “Confirm”
Once the scores are confirmed, players are no longer able to edit any scores for this round. If an incorrect score is submitted and requires correction after the player has confirmed and signed-off on it, a two-throw penalty will be assessed in accordance with rule 808 G.2.
