Advertise with the PDGA

PDGA Website Advertising

The PDGA’s advertising and sponsorship programs are designed to provide disc golf businesses with attractive opportunities for promoting their products on the sport’s number one website, PDGA.com, and to support the PDGA in producing some of its key printed, promotional, electronic, and video resources.

You can find details on different advertising opportunities, followed by a set of bulk discount rates below. Please note that some ad opportunities have limited spaces and these will be awarded on a first come first served basis. All parties advertising in PDGA print materials will receive complimentary copies of these products.

Once you have determined which opportunities you would like to participate in, please download and fill out the PDGA Advertising Order Form and email it to ads@pdga.com. When the PDGA receives your order, we will confirm and advise when and where to send your artwork. Invoices for advertising will be sent out in early 2015.
