2016 PDGA Women's Global Event


Event Information

The PDGA Women's Committee is very pleased to announce the third edition of the PDGA Women’s Global Event on May 14th, 2016. Inaugurated in 2012, this biennial event broke records in 2014 and once again made history as the largest PDGA event for a single demographic within the sport of disc golf. 61 registered tournaments, spanning 28 states and 6 countries resulted in a turnout of 1,060 women competing in 17 different PDGA divisions. Let's break those records again in 2016!

How it Works

On May 14th, women from all around the world will play two rounds of disc golf at their local participating Women's Global Event. Scores from the first two rounds of each participating tournament will be submitted by the individual tournament directors and rated by the PDGA. These round ratings will be totaled and averaged to determine the player's "Global Score." For the rounds to qualify, the event must include two rounds and have at least three ratings propagators playing on the same course layout each round for ratings to be calculated as accurately as possible. Please note, the exact same course layout must be used for both rounds. The Global Scores will be updated throughout the day to determine our Women’s Global Event Champions and the winner in each division will receive a memorable trophy.
