I say it counts. I mean,why lie about it. I have 5 aces and I was alone for 1 of them. I know it was an ace,whether anybody else does or not.

My first and only

I have also only had one ace. It came at Sharp Springs in Smyrna, TN on the pro hole 3 (over the pond). I was using a 10x KC Pro Eagle 174g. It is a gentle hyzer out over a pond and back into a landing area on the other side. The pin was in the short location right on the bank. It is about 265 maybe. Well, I threw it too high, or so I thought. I really thought that I had lost a good disc in the drink and it fadded off slightly to the left, but was falling like a brick from the sky and it may have hit some chains, but it looked like it almost fell straight into the basket. I had one witness, my buddy that I always play with, so we both signed the disc and it's hanging in my office...in fact I can see it right now. I hated to retire it because it was a trusty driver but I learned from my buddy. He has one ace. 3 days later he lost the disc in the drink on a different hole. Mine has not been thrown again since.

So the question is, if you hit an ace in a field and nobody is there to see it, did it really happen?
Yes, it counts, but it's not near as fun. I'm glad I had two witnesses!

Hole 12, 490', Gran Canyon, Brooksville FL, FLASH 175g
2005 Best Shot Doubles Championship

I threw a huge hyzer off a 50' cliff that opens up to a grassy field and somehow my disc managed to find the basket and stick.

Ken Climo congratulated me after the round, which made not being in the Ace pot(290$) all worth it!

My first ace was about an hour ago. Hole #3 at Hobson Grove in Bowling Green, KY. 265 ft. blind basket. I made the throw on the line I wanted and had turned to walk off the teepad when I heard CRASH!!! So I ran over the hill and saw my disc in the basket. It likely skipped but I'm not sure. Had a witness and took a pic of him standing by the basket also, just in case.

Here's a pic of the Star TeeRex before removing it from the basket:

Nice shot!! One of my aces was off the skip. There's nothing like hearing the sound of chains from the tee.

Four years playing (possibly to the day), playing by myself but some locals saw it. Probably in the 263 ft long position right at the end of the concrete. It was one of those that just felt perfect on the release... and didn't feel real until I pulled it out.

I am still waiting on mine as well. The closest I ever got was #9 at Mac Gregor Park in Houston, TX. Hit the rim of the basket. I think the hole is about 220 feet.

I hit my first ace after a couple months of playing and it just started a snowball of aces after that. My first ace was 220 ft. I threw a 171 champion orc forehard and it just slammed the chains and stayed in.
Here's the hole:

I aced it 2 more times shortly after.
I also aced this hole with a skip ace soon after my first ace:

Both of those holes are at Greenway DGC in Oregon.
I also aced this hole while visiting family in Arizona:

(Vista Del Camino Park)

since last fall, no more aces but lately I've splashed the chains and 5 different holes ranging from 220-405 ft.
