Ledgestone FAQ

What happens if I signup for an AM division and my rating moves up?
You will need to move up to that division, unless the ratings update is within two weeks of the tournament start date. If the update is within two weeks, and your rating changes, we will make an exception to allow you to remain in the division you signed up for. EXCEPTION: If the rating change puts you more than 5 points away from the ratings cap for that division, you will have to move up. If there are no spots available in that division, you will need to go on the waiting list. It is recommended that players play up a division if they think there is a chance their skills will progress throughout the year.
How does the AM payout process work?
The tournament will be responsible for the AM payout and will have items for sale on Sunday at two locations: Lake Eureka and Five Points in Washington. The payout will start as soon as the scores are tabulated for the division in question and we make the payout vouchers. Different divisions will get to go through the payout area at different times based on when they finish. The payout will be Discraft discs, baskets, bags, other items, etc. If you do not purchase items at the event with your payout voucher, you will be able to use your voucher later on to buy stuff later from the Ledgestone retail website.
I am traveling to the event with my buddy. Can we play on the same card for the first round so it's easier for us to travel?
We are not able to accommodate requests like this.
What is the format for the rounds?
The full course schedule is located here: http://lisopen.com/event/course-schedule.aspx All rounds each day will be tee times.
If I am a pro player, will I need to fill out a W9?
Yes, you will need to fill out a W9 this year if you make more than $600 from the event. We will then issue 1099’s later on in the year.
How long will AM check-in take?
Plan on at least 30 minutes for the AM-check in process. We are making progress towards cutting down the time it takes to check people in, but we have a lot of AMS to check in.
Where can I find my tee time each night?
Please check the PDGA.com results page each night for your time. We have added another staff member to help with scoring this year, so our goal is to have the round results and next day tee times up as fast as possible every night. With 1000+ players and a lot of scores to double check, we do want to make sure what we post is right the first time, so it does take time.
What happens if I need to withdraw?
Please make sure to let us know by emailing [email protected] – if you do not let us know that you are withdrawing you will receive an 888 designation with the PDGA, which will affect your rating. It is important for us to know this information in advance so we can adjust cards if we have to.
Can someone else check in for me?
Unfortunately we do not allow this. Please make plans to be there for AM check in.
What if I am not able to check-in?
Check-in is required on Thursday for Amateur players and Wednesday for professional players with no exceptions.
Can I get a Ledgestone players pack without playing the event?
When can I practice courses for Ledgestone?
This differs for each course. During Ledgestone week we are hosting ten Flex C Tiers. The courses are closed to outside play during those Flex C Tiers and the dates for the Flex C Tiers can be found here: https://lisopen.com/event/. The only exception is Northwood Black/Blue on Tuesday August 3rd. MPO and FPO players can practice the course this day even if they are not playing the Flex event. Outside of the Flex C Tier restriction, the following courses have no other restrictions for practice in the months leading up to Ledgestone, including Ledgestone week: Bradley Park, Eureka Permanent, Northwood OG, Northwood Black, McNaughton, Washington Park and Westwood Park. Sunset Hills and Wildlife DGC are pay to play courses. Wildlife is generally always available, while it is advised to call ahead to Sunset Hills for a tee time. Additionally Eureka Temp will be setup and available for play the evening of Saturday July 31st and is restricted by the Flex C Tier event on Sunday, August 1st. Additionally the Eureka Temp course is restricted to MPO players only on Wednesday August 4th. Sunset Hills is restricted to FPO players only between 8AM and Noon on Tuesday August 3rd and Wednesday August 4th. Kennel Lake is a private club and membership is required to play the course before Ledgestone week. The course is open and available to practice (free of charge) Monday August 2nd through Wednesday August 4th, with the Flex event on Thursday August 5th restricting the course that day.
Is there a dress code?
Yes, there is a dress code that applies to all players and their caddies. The dress code is located here: https://www.pdga.com/rules/competition-manual/304
