Once, a friend and I stood out in a field and threw at a basket in his front yard, about 240ft. We each had like 5 discs. I sank one. I would call that a 'safari cubby' ace. Otherwise known as a 'nice shot' But its currently the best shot I have to my name!

1st throw from a legit teeing area that lands in and stays in the basket = ace.

It's not an ace unless you yell "Woo Hoo!" and sign both the tee sign and number plate for posterity (if applicable.) Rules is rules.

True of False: 99% of all aces were not intentional.

I know this isn't huge topic of discussion stuff, but I couldn't find any other threads when I searched, so please don't flame me for failing to look lol
There must be hundreds of other threads, but they're usually titled something like "Does this count?"

The short answer is, "Yes". It's your throw, you're the one doing the counting, so count it. I know I would.

I’ve hit chains a few times, and “aced” one in the short basket when I was going for the long basket. Never had a legit ace in 4+ years of playing. Mostly because 17 out of 18 holes on my home course (long layout) are unreachable from the tee, and that’s where I play 95% of the time. Come to think of it, even the other courses around here that I play semi-regularly only have one or two legit ace runs each.

The shorter layout at my home course has 8 or 9 holes reachable from the tee, so I’d eventually ace one especially if I threw multiple discs every time, but I guess I really don’t care that much.
