The Ottawa Tree-Oh Challenge was a three-player team disc golf tournament.  It consisted of three rounds of golf, each round with its own distinct format and strategies for the participants, as well as a series of "Skill Competitions".  The first round used a modified "Best Drive" format, with all three team members scoring three of their own drives in the round, and playing in a scramble format after the initial drive per hole.

The second round was similar to the first, with each member of a trio using three of their drives during the round.  The difference on this round was that the team had to use the "Worst Drive" offered by all three of their members.  Any one team member could only generate three drives, so when one person had registered three of the team's worst drives, the result of the second worst drive was used, and so on.

Between the second and third rounds, members from each team was involved in one of three "Skill Competitions".  There was an upwind drive contest for the "Big Arms" on each team, a difficult Mid-Range contest for shots closest to the tee, and an increasingly long Putting Competition.  Winners of each Skill Competition won a "Birdie" 2 result added onto their team score, while the second and third competitor earned "Par" 3 and "Bogie" 4 results for their teams.  All other participants were scored with a "Double Bogie" 5.  All three competitions were won by representatives of three different teams.  A good overall performance in the Skills Competition by Team Slice helped to create an exciting final playoff round.

On the final round, a true "Scramble" format was used, with all players playing each hole and throwing from their own disc placements.  Hole scores from all three players had to be registered three times each on this round, and the decision of which players result to take by hole had to be made at the end of each hole.  This made it especially tense on the final hole, as everyone knew whose result would be the only one that would count towards a teams total score.

As it turned out, there was a three way tie for first place after the three rounds of golf and the Skill Competitions.  The playoff format consisted of one randomly determined hole, with the total result of all three players combined and compared to one another.  The playoff hole turned out to be the 4th hole, and a huge birdie putt by Carl Visser clinched the title for High and Mighty over The Ultimate Tossers and Team Slice. The other two members of High and Mighty and the two runner-up teams all shot par-3 on the playoff hole.

Hucking in the sun, with the Ottawa River in the background. The Second Hole at Jacques Cartier Park.  Here there be disc-eating dragons.  The falls are on the Ontario side, and are at the end of the Rideau River where it enters the Ottawa River. Well equipped disc golfer and member of The Joint Sub-Committee.
