Format

This is a singles league with weekly handicap payout. Players establish a handicap after they have played two league rounds. For those who played in the winter league, handicaps have already been established. The handicap levels the playing field and makes it so that players of all skill level can compete against each other. View current handicaps here.

Statistics and Tracking

All players who participate in Spring League will have their stats tracked and receive an Infinite Rating (similar to the PDGA rating). Weekly rounds will be rated and recorded.

Weekly payout will be awarded to the top 40% of weekly finishers in Infinite Bucks (store credit to Infinite Discs). $1 from each players pay in will go to season ending prizes.

Additional Weekly Prizes and Contests

Prize CTP – Each week there will be a CTP (Award for player whose drive lands closest to the pin) prize for 2016 club members who bring their bag tag to league play. The cost to join the club and get a bag tag is only $10.

Cash CTP – An optional cash CTP prize will be available for anyone who wants to add $1 to the pot.

Ace Pot – An optional one dollar ace pot is available. The ace pot builds every week until eventually someone gets an ace (hole in one).

Additional prizes sponsored by Infinite Discs will also be available for participants.

Season Ending Prizes

Season ending prizes will be awarded to players with the best combined scores at each of the four courses we play. In order to qualify for the season ending prize, you must play every course at least once. Only your best score at each course will be used towards season results. The more times you play each course the better your chance of getting a low score.

There will be four different division awards based on players end of season Infinite Rating.

Division groups will be divided by participants in each group. The estimated year end ratings for each group are as follows (subject to change based on participation):

  • 920+
  • 870 – 920
  • 820 – 870
  • <820

Season ending prizes will be payed out in Infinite Bucks and total amounts will be determined by overall participation in each rating bracket. The total prize should be big enough to buy a new disc golf bag or basket for winners of EACH division group.

Here are current standings.
