How to joiN
To get your tag, simply make a donation of at least $20 at this link.
Pick up your tag at the next Disc Golf Church event.
Challenges will run from June 4 through October 31. You may play for tags Nov 1st through June 3, but the rules below will not be enforced.
1) challenge the player lower than you
The higher tag challenges the lower tag. The easiest way to challenge is to use the Facebook Group and the Group Roster to find out who has the lower bag tag and call them out on the challenge. Challenges can otherwise be made by phone, social media, email, or in person.
2) When you are challenged
In order for Disc Golf Tag to work, all challenges must be accepted.
The challenged player picks the course, tees and format. Format choices include: stroke play or match play.
Challenges are to be made by choosing times and courses that are reasonable. The challenged player must give the challenger two (2) times to meet in the next two (2) weeks or they must forfeit the tag. If the challenger can not meet that timeline, the challenge is void. Not showing up for a match results in a forfeit (10 minute leeway).
3) make it a group round
After a time has been agreed upon with the challenger, players may invite other players to join to play as a group. No more than 5 adjacent players on each card. Play proceeds as with tournament/event rules (see club events and tournaments below).
4) During the round
Each player must have their tag at all times. Tags must be plainly visible and can not be hidden.
Friendly side wagers of any kind can be made at the discretion of the participants, but are not required.
PDGA rules apply.
Out-of-bounds rules must be agreed on by all parties before teeing off.
If the challenger wins the round, the tags are exchanged.
Ties are won by the holder of the lower bag tag at the beginning of the round. However, if all players agree before the round starts; a play-off hole(s) can be used as a tiebreaker using sudden death rules.
You don't have to play back-to-back challenge rounds against the same player or in a multiplayer match with the exact same opponents. However, if all parties agree, consecutive round challenges are allowed. Challenges must be verbally agreed upon at the beginning of each round.
Incomplete round: If a player does not complete a bag tag challenge round, the exiting player should trade tags with the player with the highest tag number. If play is stopped by all players before the round is complete, no tags are exchanged. This could be due to hazardous weather, physical emergency or mutual agreement.
5) Winner Reports the round
Events and Tournaments
Regular Disc Golf Church meetings are played as events.
The winner of each card at an event receives immunity and does not need to accept challenges for 1 week. The player may still challenge lower numbers while holding immunity.
All attending bag tag players must participate in challenges at events and tournaments. No Match Play unless tournament is Match Play.
Tags at events and tournaments are competed for by cards. Each card of 3-5 adjacent people play against each other and tags are distributed by score at the end of the event or tournament. No sudden death to decide ties and final nine rounds/playoffs are exempt from challenges.
Tournaments and Championships will be divided into a lead card and a chase card. Each player must complete at least 5 event and challenge rounds to win prize positions at tournaments. Only tag holders can participate in tournaments. New members may join on tournament days and can win non-prize-winning positions and get their rounds counted toward their total rounds played for the season. Sudden death playoffs will decide ties.
Players using different tees in tournaments are competing against only other players using the same tee format.
Players who are not playing for tags may participate in the tournament on their own cards. Players applying for tags before the tournament has begun will be issued the next available tag and can begin to play for tags. If a player decides to join the bag tag club after the tournament has begun, they must wait until after the tournament is over to receive their tag, which will be the next tag available.
All rules are subject to change as needed and are not official unless posted on this site. Last updated 10/15/2017.
