Levels

For the inaugural year of the USFGT tournaments will be limited to the following four levels

  • B-Level (B)  Generally regional or state level events. Members competing in B-Level events earn 3 points for every competitor they beat in their division. These events typically draw amateur competitors with a wider variety of skills levels.

  • Current status of Certified Rules Official required to compete.

  • Length: 1 or 2 days.

  • Holes: 18 to 36.

CODE OF CONDUCT

To Play in the United States

The Player Code of Conduct is a set of guidelines for professional and amateur footgolfers to follow throughout the AFGL Tour and USFGT tournament season and into the future. To see the Player Code of Conduct visit the following link Here

RIGHT

Of Admission

The USFGT reserves the right of admission and may refuse any player's participation at any time for any reason.

TIE BREAKER

To define the Champion

In the case of a tie for 1st place, there must be a playoff between all tied players to determine the tournament champion (this applies to each category). The election of the hole(s) to be played is subject to the organizer’s (course) criteria.

 

The playoff will be decided after 1 hole. If the tie continues after the playoff, there will be a “blind approach” and the player that places the ball closest to the hole is the winner.

 

This system will apply only to define the Champion of each tournament.

 

For 3rd place and following positions, tied players will get the same points, based on the 92% rule. If, for any reason (climate conditions, lack of sunlight, safety, etc.) the organizer and marshals understand the playoff system can not take place, the 1st position will be decided by the last 18 holes for a 36 - 54 hole or more tournaments, or by the back 9 for 18-hole tournaments. If still tied, then the last 6 holes and then last 3 holes; if still tied, there is a draw.

CANCELLATION

And Refund Policy

Each tournament will have it's own registration and cancellation fees/policies. Please review the information for each tournament accordingly to know what the policy is for that tournament.
