Double Elimination bracketed format, with best-of-5 matches on both the winners side and losers side of the bracket. If 25 or more players entered, then we will likely reduce to best-of-3 matches on the losers side of the bracket. Entry fee is $10 per player. Trophies for 1st, 2nd, & 3rd places. Small cash prize pay-outs for top 3 finishing places, likely 60%, 30%, & 10% of entry fee pool less costs of trophies.
Pingolf. Initial round to be 9 holes (9 different machines). Achievements could be to reach a certain score, or could be an objective (such as start a certain multi-ball). Max score on 3-ball games to be set at 4. Max score on 5-ball games to be set at 6. Top 4 players with the lowest total 9-hole pingolf scores will make the play-offs. The play-off round will consist of 3 holes (3 different machines, selected by tournament director, likely via random draw). Top 2 players with the lowest total 3-hole pingolf scores in play-off round will then make it to the Finals. The Finals round will consist of 3 holes (3 different machines, selected by the td, likely via random draw). The two players that dropped out in the play-off round can play a single game to decide 3rd and 4th place if tied, or they can agree to tie for 3rd place. If necessary, an additional hole(s) can be played for each round to break tie scores to determine which player(s) will advance. Entry fee is $5 per player. Trophy for 1st place. Small cash prize pay-outs for top 2 finishing places, likely 70% & 30% of entry fee pool less cost of trophy.
