Tournament Policies and Procedures

Entry Procedure

Must be done online on registration page or in person with the tournament director at TD's discretion.


Wait List Policy

Players which pay their entry fee before the entry deadline for an event whose field has been filled will be placed on a wait list in the order in which the entries are received. Entrants affected by the wait list policy will be notified by email of any change in status. At the site, on the first day of play of an event, wait listers will be drawn from the official list of persons who are actually present, on-site and ready to play. Players on wait list must announce their presence to the check-in table as soon as possible. On site wait listers will maintain priority assigned prior to the competition, i.e. order in which entries were received. Any player still on wait list the day of event that does not get a spot to play, will receive a full refund.


Withdrawal Procedure

A player may withdraw from a tournament by canceling their registration by notifying the Tournament Director. 



A player is entitled to a refund of the entry fee when withdrawal from an event is made prior to the tournament deadline date. Anyone wishing a refund when withdrawing after the tournament deadline must make a written request to the Harford County Disc Golf Club. Those requests will be reviewed on a case by case basis. 


No Show Policy

A player who fails to notify the Tournament Director or a member of his/her staff of withdrawal prior to close of check-in time will forfeit their spot and players pack to someone on the wait list. 


Division Policy

All divisions may be offered for competition which has three or more players that are eligible and wishing to compete.

Conduct Policy

All events follow the Churchville Rec and PDGA code of conduct policies.


Dress Code

In all HCDGC events, players must be neat in appearance with respect to clothing and personal grooming. The official in charge of the event shall decide whether this requirement has been met, and has the authority to withdraw the entry of a player who does not comply.


From the PDGA:


  1. All violations of the Dress Code Policy shall be considered a Courtesy Violation under Section 801.04 of the PDGA Official Rules of Play.

  2. All competitors and staff are required to wear a shirt.

  3. All competitors and staff are required to wear shoes or other foot coverings. Players will not be allowed to play in bare feet. Sandals or slides are allowed.

  4. The following dress code for all competitors will be enforced at all PDGA Elite Series/ National Tour and Major Events. The PDGA also recommends that this dress code be enforced at Super Tour and lower tier events, but this decision lies solely with the Tournament Director:


  • All players in PDGA sanctioned competition and tournament staff are expected to dress appropriately and to maintain a clean and well-groomed appearance at all event sites and associated functions.

  • All players must wear a shirt covering their upper chest area. A well-tailored shirt with a collar and sleeves covering the upper arm shall be considered acceptable. Tank tops are not allowed for any competitor, but women may wear sleeveless shirts with collars.

  • Women may also wear well-tailored one-piece tennis dresses with minimum 1 inch wide shoulder straps. (added 12/17/2013)

  • No tee shirts will be allowed, except for competitors in the Junior and Amateur divisions during preliminary rounds only. Juniors and Amateurs shall not wear tee shirts during semifinal or final rounds. Crew neck or v-neck shirts made of high-performance or high-tech materials, such as Dry-Fit, Cool-Max, and others will be allowed.

  • Shirts that hang down lower than the bottom hemline on the player's shorts shall be tucked in.

  • No ripped shirts, shorts, or pants will be allowed on the course. This includes unhemmed, torn or cut "vents" at the shirt collar.

  • No offensive, profane, or obscene slogans or logos shall be allowed on any clothing. Junior players may not wear slogans or logos referring to alcohol, tobacco, or drugs.

  • This dress code will be in effect from start to finish at each event, including all tournament rounds.

  • Players who do not make a cut, but wish to remain on site through the duration of the tournament, will be considered spectators and will not be required to conform to the Tour's dress code.
