The Professional Disc Golf Association, founded in 1976, held the first PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships in Los Angeles in 1982. The title of World Champion is still the most coveted in the sport today, with hundreds of the best male and female competitors on the planet attempting to add their name to the list of PDGA Pro World Champions each and every year.
Several years later, the sport had grown to the point where the amateur players heavily outnumbered the professionals, and thus a new championship was created in 1989, the PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships.
PDGA Major Events are the premier national and international competitions for the sport of disc golf each year, featuring the world’s best disc golfers competing for World and National Titles in multiple skill, age, and gender-based divisions. These PDGA marquee events offer any city or town the chance to host an international sporting event in their community, drawing interest and attention to the location, and generating a significant economic impact for local businesses.
