Tournament / League Challenges
Challenges can occur during any NTDG sanctioned events
Tags can be either played per card or full field. It can also be played on a round by round basis or end result across the entire tournament (if multiple rounds are played). The format of this MUST be agreed in advance and is optional for players.
The challenge still needs to be publicly announced or agreed upon before the start of the round.
NTDG Members cannot opt-out this challenge.
Casual Round Challenges
NTDG members may casually meet at a course OR agree to meet at a course/time to compete for bag tags in:
Head-to-Head (me vs. you) challenges.
Group Challenges, where multiple players each put a Bag Tag at stake during the group round.
Members may not deny a challenge and then proceed to play a round (see forfeiture).
Each Bag Tag belongs to the entire club membership and should be accessible to all club members. Any club member will be required to surrender his/her Bag Tag if:
He/She is found to be purposely concealing the Bag Tag, especially with a low number.
Refusing and/or “forgetting” to carry his/her Bag Tag, especially to events where members are “likely” to be present.
Refusing in person challenges without valid reasons to do so.
Generally denying Bag Tag access to other members (TBD by 2 or more committee members).
Abandoning a challenge while it is in play
If you lose your Bag Tag, please report it immediately. You may then purchase the next lowest number Bag Tag available. Replacement tags, if available, will cost $10.00.
Rules are subject to change and the NTDG Committee will decide all disputes. The NTDG Committee reserves the right to revoke your Bag Tag at our discretion.
End of season results
At the end of the NTDG season, a winner will be determined and appropriate kudos will be awarded. The new year of challenges for the lowest bag tag number starts over when you renew your annual NTDG membership. Each season you will receive a new physical bag tag.
