Bag Tags

Conway Parks Bag Tag Rules

Conduct

  1. Everyone is on their honor to conduct themselves according to the rules and within the spirit of competition. Have fun. It's only a tag. The purpose of the Bag Tag Challenge is to encourage friendly competition among Conway Parks and Recreation Disc Golf league members.

  2. In order for the Bag Tag Challenge to work, all challenges must be accepted.

  3. Each player must have their Bag Tag at all times. Bag Tags must be plainly visible and cannot be hidden.

  4. Challenges are to be made by choosing times that are reasonable and must be played at Beaverfork Lake Disc Golf Course.

Challenges

  1. Challenges will run from April 11th through May 31st. You may play for tags June 1st through December 31st, but the rules below will not be enforced.

  2. The higher Bag Tag challenges the lower Bag Tag. Challenges can be by phone, electronically (ie, social media, email), or in person. It is preferred to use the Conway Parks Disc Golf Facebook Group.

  3. The player receiving the challenge must make a “fair and reasonable” effort to be available within 2 weeks, or they must forfeit the tag. All games must be played at Beaverfork Lake Disc Golf Course. If the challenger cannot meet that timeline, the challenge is void. Not showing up for a match results in a forfeit. (20 minute leeway)

  4. The challenged player picks format. Format choices include: stroke play or match play but no doubles/triples etc. of any kind. PDGA rules apply. If the challenger wins the round, the tags are exchanged.

  5. 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 tie-breaker using sudden death rules.

  6. You can’t play back-to-back challenge rounds against the same player or in a multi-player match with the exact same opponents. A player can’t challenge you, lose to you, and immediately challenge you again for another round. However, if ALL parties agree, consecutive round challenges are allowed. Challenges MUST be verbally agreed upon at the beginning of EACH round.

  7. 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.

  1. Multiple people at the same course at the same time can have a group challenge with 5 or less playing in the group. If more than 5 are present the group must split into cards of at least 3 and play proceeds as if it were a tournament/league.

  2. Conway Parks and Recreation Department reserves the right to amend or change bag tags rules at any time.

Automatic Challenges (AC)

  1. Automatic challenge during any League rounds. The player with the lowest score on the card at the end of the round earns the lowest numbered Bag Tag among the challengers. Bag Tags must be exchanged immediately following the round. Ties are won by the holder of the lower bag tag at the beginning of the round.

  2. The challenge does not need to be publicly announced or agreed upon before the start of the round–it is automatic!

  3. League members may not deny this challenge.
