Castlewood Discgolf Club's dominant competition is Riddarrundan (RR), an ever-growing competition which attracts both novice and experienced players. In 2016 Riddarrundan had an average of 70 players each week.
This season we will continue to use the revolutionary discgolf app, Spinn, which takes care of player resgitration before each round and brings live scoring and instant online results and stats after each round.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask a member of the Riddarrundan team at the course, or throw over an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you :)
For the 2018 season Riddarrundan will premiere on April 11 at 18.00. The season finale will be on 28 August 2018 at 18.00. There are 21 rounds in total and they are played every Tuesday. We gather at around 18.15 and teeoff at 18.30 (please note that the season premiere and finale teeoff at 18.00 due to reduced daylight hours)
All rounds are played on Slottsskogen’s black course. Details about the course can be found on the website: slottsskogendiscgolf.se
To participate all you need to do is become a Riddarrundan player by signing up and joining a group on the web app. You must join a group at least 30 minutes before each rounds’ teeoff, after which registration closes in order for us to prepare the scorecards ready for teeoff at 18.30.
Players who hold season passes (see Cost) are able to join a group from 48 hours before each round's teeoff, and those who don't hold season passes are able to join from 24 hours before.
The field is open to the first 90 players who join a group.
Note: if you can not participate, please ensure you remove yourself from your group at least 30 minutes before teeoff. Failure to do so will inflict a penalty where you will not be able to participate in the next round. Circumstances beyond your control will be reviewed and in legitimate cases waived.
If you are late for teeoff, your group will add a score of 6 for each hole you do not play. If after six holes you have not arrived to play, your group will remove you from the scorecard and you will not be able to participate in the round.
There are up to 21 rounds that a player can play during a season. A player’s average score from their best 7 rounds is counted. A player must play and complete at least 7 rounds to get an average score and have the chance to finish in the top five of their respective league and be eligible for winnings.
There are four leagues:
Which league a player plays in depends on their average score:
King: any player who played 7 rounds or more the previous season with an average score of 49.9 or lower. Plus any Battlefield players with that same average (see The Battlefield).
Queen: any female player. Note: a female player who played 7 rounds or more the previous season can choose to play Kings, Knights or Soldiers based on their average score or via The Battlefield (see The Battlefield).
Knight: any player who played 7 rounds or more the previous season with an average score between 50.0 and 55.9. Plus any Battlefield players with that same average (see The Battlefield).
Soldier: any player who played 7 rounds or more the previous season with an average score of 56.0 or over. Plus any Battlefield players with that same average (see The Battlefield).
Promotion and relegation
At the end of each season, any players with a 7 round average score that does not reflect their league (see The Leagues) will be promoted or relegated for the next season. This is how it works:
Players who have a lower 7 round average score than their league will be promoted. For example:
Player 1 was a Knight and had an average score of 48.0. This means they will be promoted to the Kings’ league.
Players who have a higher 7 round average score than their league will be relegated. For example:
Player 2 was a Knight and had an average score of 62.0. This means they will be relegated to the Soldiers’ league. When a player such as Player 2 plays a higher average and gets relegated, they may choose* to go to The Battlefield the following season to try and prove they are still worthy of being a Knight. An example of why Player 2 might choose to do this is if they have developed their game between the ending and beginning of the seasons and feel they don’t belong in a lower league.
* If you are subject to be relegated but want to go to The Battlefield, you must notify us before playing your first round by sending over an email to: email@example.com. You can check your last year’s best 7 round average here: results
All players** who have not played at least 7 rounds during the previous season will go to The Battlefield for their first three rounds. After a player has played three rounds, the average score from their best two rounds will decide which league they will play in.
** Female players may choose to play in the Queens' league regardless of whether they have a 7 round average or not.
Player A scores 47, 51 & 54. Taking 47 & 51 as the best two scores makes their average 49.0, which means they must play in the Kings’ league.
Player B scores 55, 53 & 49. Taking 49 & 53 as their best two scores makes their average 51.0, which means they must play in the Knights' league.
Player C scores 59, 58 & 55. Taking 55 & 58 as their best two scores makes their average 56,5, which means they must play in the Soldiers’ league.
Note: a player’s three results from The Battlefield will follow them to their respective league.
Players who don’t have to go to The Battlefield
Players who have played 7 or more rounds during the previous season do not have to go to The Battlefield since their average score will determine the correct league for them (see The Leagues above).

Note: DNF players and players who are not present during the prize announcement are ineligible for prizes. When a player is announced who is not present we will randomise again. CTP winners who are not present will also miss their prize which will then be given to the next closest.

Riddarrundan costs 400 kr for a season pass (300 kr if you are a Castlewood club member, see here for details about that). Being a season passholder enables you to join a group 24 hours before players who are not (see How).
If you only want to play one or a few rounds then you may prefer to simply pay per round, which costs 40 kr and should be paid in cash (or with Swish) at the course to a member of the Riddarrundan team before the round starts each Tuesday (after 10 rounds are paid you don’t pay anything more to participate). If you are planning to play 10 or more rounds, then we please ask you to pay 300 kr in advance via our Bankgiro or Swish accounts to make management more streamlined our end :).
