2017 PDGA Professional Masters Disc Golf World Championships

Event Info


Both the PDGA and River City Disc Golf are excited to welcome you to the beautiful city of Grand Rapids, full of great restaurants, breweries, attractions, and disc golf courses.

River City Disc Golf was formed with the purpose of hosting the 2017 PDGA Pro Masters World Championship. The group is comprised of disc golfers and organizers from Michigan dedicated to the growth of disc golf in Michigan and beyond. The West Michigan Sports Commission has also been instrumental in bringing this event to Grand Rapids and rallying the city behind the event.

Grand Rapids has hosted a major in the past; in 1997, the Amateur World Championship was held using some of the courses that will be used this year. Many changes to the courses have occurred over the years, and these courses will be fully revamped for 2017. Tournament director, John “Nacho” Norkowski, will use all his years of experience directing and assisting with PDGA events to create an exceptional and enjoyable experience during your visit to Grand Rapids for the Pro Masters World Championship.
