Battle of the Aces: Info

Battle of the Aces: Definition

A “Battle of the Aces” is a fun easy way to play Disc Golf. All contestants must use the 1 or 2 discs in their “player pack”, and the only scores that count are “aces”. An Ace is defined as a single throw at the basket that goes in and stays in. Battle of the Aces, use shorter distances for the event. So everyone has a chance to Ace. There is no second throw or putt for any player.

The winner for the event is the one with the most Aces!

A: The winner for each event will receive 8 discs, a hat, towel, lanyard and a vinyl sticker.

Q: How should I promote the event?

A: The best way to promote the event is to set up flyers around the local area you plan to run a Battle of the Aces. Our website has logos that you can download and paste on said flyers. Another good way to promote is through Facebook.

Q: How do I order my player packages, and when do I need to pay?

A: You will need a valid credit card to order. Orders cannot be processed until payment is received.

Q: When should I order my player packages?

A: At least two weeks before your event. Regardless of when you order, your player packs will not be sent until just prior to your event. You will be notified via email when your order ships.

Q: What is the minimum number of player packages I can order?

A: Thirty.

Q: What will my costs be?

A: The TD package is free (Legacy gear for you). The prize package is free (discs and merch for the winner). Your costs are $25 for each players package and an additional fee for shipping. Player entry fees are $30 so the remainder is profit for you, your club, or a charity. Or you can use the additional money to provide more prizes for players or additional perks like lunch.

Q: What are my shipping costs?

A: Shipping varies based on the number of player packages ordered and where it is being shipped to. But, Legacy will ship you additional gear (disc and/or merch) to sell during your Battle of the Aces to cover your total shipping costs. So, its like you didn’t pay for shipping!

Q: How do I determine how many player packages I should order?

A: The easiest way is to pre-register your players. Many Battle of the Aces events will order a “cushion” amount of additional packages to cover players who show up the day of the event. Depending on how much you promoted, ordering an additional ten to twenty player packages is generally considered safe.

Q: If I order more player packages than I use, can I return the unused packs?

A: TDs are responsible for all player packages ordered, returns will not be accepted. However, if you end up with more than you use, it is very easy to get your investment back, since the package is worth significantly more. 

Q: Can I order specific colors and weights on my player pack discs?

A: No. We will do our best to ship you the widest selection of weights and colors as possible, but variations ultimately depend on what is in stock at the time of your order.

Q: Can I order XX number of player packages now, and more later if I need to?

A: Yes, as long as each additional order meets the 30 player package minimum. 

Q: Is my Battle of the Aces sanctioned by the PDGA?

A: No, which is a benefit because anyone may participate without paying extra fees.

Q: My park is asking me to insure my event. Does Legacy offer insurance?

A: No. It is very rare that a park won’t automatically cover your event, but budget cuts have caused a few to request outside insurance. It is very low in cost, we suggest contacting an insurance company for more details.

Q: There is already a Battle of the Aces scheduled in my area. Can I still run one?

A: We would like at least a 30 mile buffer zone between Battle of the Aces or a 3 month period. Please contact us for special arrangements.

Q: What if I need to change my event date?

A: That isn’t a problem, as long as it later in the calendar year. To change your info, you must contact us first so adjustments can be made to the master calendar.

Q: Can I run more than one event?

A: Yes! Anytime a new discs arrives you can run a Battle of the Aces.

Q: I am a retailer, and a Battle of the Aces is a great deal. Can I buy player packages with the intention of reselling them?

A: No. Battle of the Aces prices are low to enable a fun and affordable event for players. While retailers are encouraged to run Battle of the Aces events, purchases with the intent of resale are forbidden. Any business found in violation of this policy may lose its ability to order future products direct from the manufacturer, and instead be required to purchase Legacy Discs products from a wholesaler.

Q: Legacy Discs recommends I shorten the holes on my course between 180-250 feet for the Battle of the Aces. Can I go shorter? How do I shorten the longer holes?

A: You may shorten your holes to give more players a chance. Remember that the more aces hit during your event, the more fun it is! The best way to shorten up holes is to make temporary tee pads with flags.

Q: Can I bring in additional sponsors?

A: Yes. You are encouraged to make your event as big and successful as possible.

Q: I want to create separate divisions. Can I break up the Grand Prize between them?

A: No. You may create separate divisions if you like, but the Grand Prize must be awarded to your top division, and cannot be broken up. If you make separate divisions, you must generate prizes for additional divisions on your own through sponsorship or club donation.

Q: I want to serve lunch to my players. Is it okay to increase my entry fee to cover costs?

A: No. All Battle of the Aces entry fees must be $30. If you want to offer additional side games or other benefits such as lunch, these must be optional for all players and not mandatory.
