Host events at Ale Disc Golf Center
Anyone can host an event at Ale Disc Golf Center. We prefer if you create a Facebook event and add us as co-host so the event also will be visible in our Facebook calendar.
PDGA sanctioned events are events that have been approved by Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA). These events have requirements regarding equipment, rules, prices, dress code and much more.
During PDGA sanctioned events the competing players only have to pay half the green fee, the total green fees are paid by the tournament director.
We want to be notified of which course you intend to compete on and your desired event date at least two months prior to the event. The Tournament Director should have sanctioned the event with PDGA at least one month prior to the event so the event also is visible in PDGA’s competition calendar.
The course will normally not be closed to other players during the event. If you want the course to be closed for normal visitors during peak season, you should contact us at least four months prior to the event and in these cases, we need to have financial guarantees, at least 75 % of the course needs to be filled with groups of four players, i.e. 54 players per course. If there are fewer players you will still need to pay half green-fee for 54 players.
If you plan your event late in the season the conflict with regular visitors will be smaller which is positive from our point of view.
During PDGA sanctioned events extra holes we don’t allow extra holes, only the standard layouts can be used since this is recommended both by PDGA and by the Swedish Disc Golf Association. As a bonus usage of the standard layouts allow the possibility to set course records, official personal records and the PDGA database will be filled with result from the our courses. Exceptions may occur but our basic philosophy is that it is not allowed.
For non-PDGA sanctioned events no specific conduct apply, the players pay normal green fees and the courses will normally not be closed for regular visitors, but exceptions can be made. Contacts us to see if we can come to an agreement.
Just like for PDGA sanctioned events, it’s harder to close the courses from June through August and if the courses will be closed it’s required that you fill the course with the same 75 %, i.e. 54 players per course.
When the event is not sanctioned normal rules do not apply and if we have the time and resources we can assist in adding extra holes.
