The purpose of the Bag Tag is to add another fun element to personal, league, and tournament rounds of disc golf. Your goal is to have the lowest numbered Bag Tag possible and have fun along the way. Have fun and follow the rules and spirit of disc golf. Please display your Bag Tag where others can easily see it.

How to receive your bag tag?

Bag tags are available to persons who hold an annual NTDG membership. Tags are distributed in order of purchase matching their NTDG membership. Only the designated tags for that year are eligible for play. NTDG bag tags become the permanent property of the member at the conclusion of the bag tag season.


All financial members of the Nelson Tasman Disc Golf Club will receive a bag tag as part of their annual membership. Members will receive the lowest numbered tag available that isn’t already in use. 


Bag Tag rules

Wins, ties and rematches

How do you win?

The player with the lowest score at the end of the challenge round earns the lowest numbered Bag Tag among the challengers on the playing card.

What happens if there is a tie?

In the event of a tie, the player who started with the lowest numbered Bag Tag will be awarded the lowest numbered Bag Tag. This may require some sorting in a group challenge. Playoff holes to determine a winner are not required.

When do you exchange bag tags?

Bag Tags must be exchanged immediately following the round.

Can I ask for a rematch?

Winners do not have to accept an immediate rematch, but tags will be up for grabs against when you next play each other.
