Map and Rules for Cache Valley Classic

Official Rules for the 2015 Cache Valley Classic: All participants and spectators must follow Cache County Fairgrounds rules, including NO SMOKING or Alcoholic beverages. This is a PDGA sanctioned event and players must adhere to PDGA rules including Out of Bounds rules and the use of a mini marker disc. General Rules At the end of the players meeting starting holes will be assigned — but the round will not begin until the official signal. Once the TD is ready to play a “2 minute” call will be yelled throughout the course. After two minutes, the call will be made to officially begin your tournament round. Out of Bounds— When your disc lands in a spot that is designated as out of bounds by the course rules, you must take your next shot from the last place your disc was in-bounds and take a one stroke penalty.  If in question, use group consensus.  You may place your mini marker 1 meter in from the out of bounds line.  You must have both feet in-bounds to make your throw.   If any part of your disc is touching an in-bounds line, you are still in.  Your disc must be completely surrounded by out-of-bounds area to be out.  In the case the out of bounds line is marked by flags with no paint line, use your best eye-judgement and group consensus. Mandatory Arrows—  Some holes have mandatory markers on certain trees.  They are arrows that point which direction your disc needs to go around the tree.  A spray paint line will be on the ground on the wrong side of the mandatory.  If your disc crosses this plane, you must take a one stroke penalty and then throw from the drop zone, which, on this course, is always next to the marked mandatory tree.  If your disc travels out of bounds before it crosses a mandatory line, you must play your disc from the last place it was in-bounds.  So you would get a one meter relief from that spot, and you still must play the mandatory.  (This comes into play mainly on holes 3 and 9.) After the round is done. Add your score card, have someone double check your score card, initial your score card and turn it in to the tournament directors. A two stroke penalty will be assessed to any miscalculated score cards. Hole Specifics Hole 1– Mando tree right, pavement and beyond, waterway, and gravel road are OB.  If your discs lands across the waterway on the grass you are still in bounds. Hole 2– All pavement and crossing paths are OB, gravel road on left is...
