Snowflake

About

To spice things up during the long Winter, Castlewood arranges a fun competition called Snowflake, a singles competition but with a twist: on several holes you have the chance to throw multiple discs, which we call Tip-Tap-Toe.

There are two scoring leagues: one with a handicap and one without. All players are automatically added to both leagues so everyone can compete against each other and check their positions. There are prizes for the top three players in both leagues.

There will be a total of 9 rounds and a player's best 4 rounds are counted for their average.

The course is 16 holes and par 51.

How Tip-Tap-Toe works

Tip-Tap-Toe uses the same rules as best-shot but with a limit:

  • on 8 holes you throw 1 disc (Tip)
  • on 6 holes you throw 2 discs (Tap)
  • on 2 holes you throw 3 discs (Toe)

It's up to each individual player which holes they want to use their 8 Tips, 6 Taps and 2 Toes on, however, a player must decide after their first tee-shot whether they will throw a second disc. A player can not go and check where their disc landed, instead they must make a decision without always being certain of their lie. Note: a player does not need to decide immediately after their tee-shot if they want to throw a second disc – they must first allow other players in the group to make their tee-shots, and after it cycles back to them they must then decide on whether they want to throw a second disc or not. The same principle goes if they throw a second disc and contemplate throwing a third.

Whichever amount of discs a player throws from tee, they continue playing that hole with the same amount discs from which they believe is their best lie until they complete the hole.

It's important to keep track of players' Tip-Tap-Toe usage by marking clearly on Snowflake's scorecards.

Terminology: Tip = 1 disc, Tap = 2 discs and Toe = 3 discs

How the handicap system works

A player's handicap is determined by their results from Riddarrundan or/and other competitions. Depending on how well a player plays they will potentially increase/decease their handicap several times throughout the 9 Snowflake rounds.
