2017 PDGA A-Tier Schedule Released, 2017 Tour Standards and Sanctioning Form Available


The schedule for the 2017 PDGA Major events, PDGA National Tour events, and PDGA A-Tier events is now available, along with the 2017 PDGA Tour Standards that will go into effect on January 1, 2017.

PDGA State/Provincial Coordinators may now start accepting requests for approval for 2017 events for B-Tier and C-Tier events.

The 2017 PDGA Event Sanctioning Form is now enabled as well, meaning Tournament Directors (TDs) for approved 2017 A, B, & C-Tier events may now begin submitting their sanctioning agreements.

Note: TDs need to be current PDGA members for 2017 and must also be Certified Officials through their event date in order to sanction. In order for an A-Tier event to appear in the upcoming winter issue of DiscGolfer Magazine, the event will need to be fully sanctioned prior to November 15th, 2016.

The PDGA Tour schedule for 2017 consists of 11 PDGA Major events, six PDGA National Tour events, and 95 PDGA A-tier events spread out across the United States and Canada, with two of the PDGA Majors taking place abroad. The 2017 Aussie Open will kick off the disc golf season at the end of January with the return of a PDGA Major to "Down Under". Towards the middle of the season in July, Europe will host the other international PDGA Major event; the 2017 European Open in Nokia/Tampere, Finland.

The PDGA National Tour will begin at the end of February with an event making its first appearance on the National Tour; the 2017 Gentleman’s Club Challenge in Las Vegas, Nevada. The National Tour will conclude with the 2017 Hall of Fame Classic at the International Disc Golf Center in Appling, Georgia in mid-October.

The table below displays the scheduled PDGA Majors, National Tour events, and A-tier events for 2017. You can also download the schedule in PDF format.
