The PDGA developed partnerships with third-party ad networks to deliver targeted premium ads to our website for national brands. In addition, the PDGA offers direct sales of premium ad spots. Direct sales ads display twice as often as third-party network ads. These premium ad spaces are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

PDGA Live Scoring (PDGALive.com)

Live scoring events vary throughout the year, so advertising packages are customized to suit each event.

Specific PDGA.com Pages

In many cases, ads can be placed on a single page and be the exclusive ad for that page. E.g. You can run an exclusive advertisement on the results page for a specific event. If you would like to advertise on a specific page or set of pages within the site, please email [email protected] to discuss a custom advertising package.
