2021- 2022 Season and 2022 CDGNC Playing Formats
Teams are generally comprised of four players. Teams may compete with fewer players but will be at a disadvantage.
Team doubles is played with two sets of teammates, one ODD pair, one EVEN pair. The ODD set will tee off on every odd-numbered hole, while the EVEN set tees off on every even-numbered holes. After the tee shots, the team chooses which of the two lies to play. From there, the set that did not tee throws their two shots. Again, the whole team decides which lie to play from and the set that teed off would throw. That alternating process continues until the hole is complete. On the next hole, the corresponding set of teammates according to the hole number, ODD or EVEN, would tee off no matter which set putted out on the previous hole. This format allows for each player to tee off the same amount of times and for teams to play as whole. Each hole has two teams playing together as an eight-some.
All singles rounds will count toward the team score in the DI, Women’s, DII, and DIII Divisions. The team’s singles round scores from each player will be averaged and will count toward the team score.
- At the National Championships, we allow teams to substitute players between rounds if they wish.
- Teams are limited to using a maximum of 6 players.
- Those 6 players may be substituted as many times as the team desires.
- Any player who participates in the National Championship Flight will no longer be eligible to play in the First or Second Flight.
- There shall be no substitutions during any round of play except for in the case of injury during team play. An injured player cannot reenter the tournament.
- Once a player is substituted out of individual play, by default, that player will not be eligible for any individual awards.
DII and DIII NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS (FORMERLY First and Second Flight)
The DII and DIII Championships are high-caliber event focused on adding to the great experience of the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships. The DII Championship provides an opportunity for many schools to compete against teams of the same level for the title of DII National Champion. In addition to teams that may not qualify for the DI Championship, we also invite schools with more than one team to compete in the DII or DIII
The DII Championship will crown a champion as well as trophy for the 1st runner-up. The DII Champion’s school will also receive a bid to the following year’s National Championships.
Due to the high demand for schools to bring additional teams, we have created the DIII National Championships.
The DIII National Championships is a division within the College Disc Golf National Championships for schools with large disc golf clubs that bring multiple teams. Schools will only be allowed to have two teams in the DII, but can also have two more in DIII.
The DIII National Championship will crown a champion and award a trophy for the 1st runner-up.
