Second round groups and starting holes will be posted here by 10pm on Saturday after round 1
BE SURE TO COMMUNICATE WITHIN YOUR GROUP TO ENJOY A SAFE ROUND!
The Uminonakamichi park disc golf course is in a multi-use area. We depend on the cooperation of park guests to make our event possible. In order not to inconvenience park guests, please follow these guidelines:
•When pedestrians or cyclists are on the course or nearby, wait until they are well out of range before continuing play.
•If park guests stop on the course impeding play, politely explain that a tournament is going on, and guide them to a safe location.
•If necessary, one member from your group should serve as a spotter to ensure the safety of non-players nearby.
•Holes #3, #4, and #5 often have cyclists passing by—make sure they are well out of range before throwing.
PACE OF PLAY
Since even only one group falling off the pace can slow down the entire event, please observe the following:
•Communicate as necessary within your group to play at a good pace (Ready Disc Golf)
•If the group ahead is advancing out of touch, or if the group behind you is waiting on every hole, increase the rate of play.
Tournament headquarters will keep track of times and may advise your group about how best to adjust speed of play.
•To protect plants and trees: in cases where your disc enters a thick bush and it is impossible to take a lie or get your leg in position behind the disc, you may move in a straight line along the line of play to the nearest point no closer to the basket where you can take a stance. Mark and throw with no penalty. Exact location of the mark should be a group decision.
*The Pampas grass on hole #13 can easily result in a lost disc, so all group members should watch drives carefully to help locate them. These plants are sharp, so be careful not to cut your hands or body.
*Holes #15 and #25 feature thick bushes that may necessitate relief as described above.
SPECIFIC HOLE NOTES
#1 hole—along the left side of the fairway there is a large pond that is OB. The waterline is the OB line in this case. There is a lower level area nearest the pond that is mostly full of water—if your disc lands surrounded by water it is OB and you can play with penalty back along the line of play, no closer to the basket. (LOP is a straight line that runs from the basket through the location of your OB disc). If the lower shelf area where you land is not covered with water and you can take a stance to throw, you are not OB. You can also take relief from swampy areas not covered in water—for example, by moving your disc up from the lower area to the fairway no closer to the basket.
#25 tee—This goal is set wide so you can either throw from the rubber mat or from the sandy ground next to it.
#26 OB—If your drive goes over the road beyond the basket, use normal OB rules. Once you have hit the safe area with your first shot, subsequent shots that go into the pond use the normal OB rule.
•Tee areas are defined in the front by the widest span between the left and right cone markers.
