FROSTBURG — No money required. Just play disc golf. On your schedule.

In a nutshell, that sums up the intent of the inaugural Summer Flex League, facilitated by the newly created Allegany County Disc Golf Club.

The Summer Flex League will not require players to shell out any money. The goal is to create a format which maximizes player participation in an affordable atmosphere. League play will be contested over six weekends in June, July and August.

Play will rotate between Mile Lane Disc Golf Course in Mount Savage, the course at Central Assembly of God in Cumberland, and The Glades at Meshach Run a few miles south of Accident, Maryland. Players can complete their rounds anytime Friday through dusk on Monday. At Central and Mile Lane, the courses are privately owned and maintained, and players must adhere to the rules each course stipulates. In addition, players must contact Mile Lane Disc Golf course owner Scott Mallery at smallery@wvaging.com or by phone 304-790-9987 to obtain permission to play at a specific day and time.

At both courses, Sunday play is to be avoided until at least 2 p.m. At Central, play cannot be conducted during school hours if school is in session. The Glades is a public course and is open from sunrise to sunset.

The rules:

  • Players will check in using the uDisc app (a free account is required, players do not have to pay for the “pro” version)
  • At least two players on a card
  • Completing a round automatically signs you up for the club (though click here for the membership form to dot the “i”s and cross the “t”s).
  • Play at Central will be 18 holes, red + white tees (Par 55, 18 holes short red tees, long white tees).
  • Play at Mile Lane will be the “standard” layout (Par 60, 18 holes, long/red tees) except in Week 6. In Week 6, players will play the 24-hole “Tournament Layout.”
  • Youth (ages 17 and under) can play on short tees (red at Central, blue at Mile Lane) for all 18 holes at both locations (though these are not yet represented on uDisc). There is only one tee pad for each hole at The Glades in Accident.
  • Players can complete more than one round in the given period — and the best round will count (updated 6.3.22 at 3:32 p.m.)
  • There is no ace pot. A hole in one earns you bragging rights.
  • There is no weekly cash payout (no money in, no money out). Just throw and enjoy the game.
  • PDGA rules are in general effect in these largely casual rounds.
  • Course etiquette should always be observed.
  • The number of awards will be based on participation, including age divisions and gender divisions (men’s, women’s and youth 17-and-under). Points will be based on a mix of participation and performance.

The weeks of Summer Flex League play are scheduled to work around the new Saturday Morning Tag League events at Mile Lane Disc Golf as well as Thursday night tag league action at Central.

Summer Flex League dates and locations are as follows:

As this is the first local league using the uDisc app, players should expect some adjustments throughout the season.
