Yes, a family discount is available. The family discount applies when two or more PDGA memberships share the same address. The second and, or any additional family members that sign up with the PDGA with the same address will receive a five dollar discount on their PDGA membership. The PDGA family membership discount will only send a single subscription of the quarterly publication of DiscGolfer Magazine to the address on file.
Processing and shipping your membership package takes 4-6 weeks. We ship using Business First Class which generally takes 3-10 days once shipped depending on your shipping address. Thank you for your patience.
Currently, we do not offer prorated memberships. If you feel you are going to compete in several PDGA sanctioned events before October 1st, then it will be worth it to go ahead and join. When you join the PDGA, any required non-member fees at PDGA sanctioned events are waived. However, if you will not be competing much before then, join after October 1st and your membership will be extended through the following year.
You will receive four issues of The DiscGolfer Magazine. If you join or renew your PDGA membership after the publications release date, then back issues will be included in your welcome/renewal package. Any issues with receiving The DiscGolfer Magazine, please contact the memberships manager.
Although some Tournament Directors offer to accept memberships at an event, it can sometimes lead to a lengthy process. Your registration information will arrive with the tournament report, and that report may not be due until 30 days later, depending on the tier level of the event. Your best bet, for future renewals, is to renew online for the quickest processing.
Birdie Club members receive a Birdie Club logo disc and Birdie Club Bag Tag. Ace Club members receive an Ace Club logo disc, Ace Club logo shirt or Ace Club metal mini and an Ace Club Bag Tag. Eagle Club members receive two personalized Eagle Club logo discs and an Eagle Club softshell jacket. This is a lifetime membership.
