2020 A-Tier Request Form Now Available
The 2020 PDGA Majors, PDGA National Tour, and Disc Golf Pro Tour schedules have been released. Crafted in collaboration with several clubs, tournament directors, and our partners at the DGPT, it includes 10 PDGA Majors, six PDGA National Tour events, and 11 Pro Tour stops, along with several other notable tournaments.
PDGA staff would like to extend a special thank you to the local organizing committee behind the 2020 United States Women's Disc Golf Championships, who moved up four months from their originally scheduled date to help facilitate a better flow for the professional tours, for their flexibility.
The PDGA is now accepting requests for 2020 A-Tiers via the A-Tier Request Form online. The submission deadline is Monday, October 21, 2019.
The current goal is to finalize and release the 2020 A-Tier schedule by mid-November.

Please note that all parts of the request form must be completed, and that at least three possible dates should be provided in order to create a schedule that works for everyone without conflicts. Due to the growth of the tour—which boasted more than 5,000 events in 2020—a single date or historical timeframe cannot be guaranteed. Flexibility for players and fellow tournament directors is key.
If at least three possible dates are not provided, A-Tier status is less likely to be awarded.
Additionally, the number of A-Tiers will continue to be limited, with no more than 100 tournaments in the United States (beyond the Disc Golf Pro Tour and National Tour companion A-Tiers) being sanctioned at that level. Unfortunately, that means not all events requesting status will receive it—even those that have previously run as A-Tiers. Only select high-profile, successful multi-year B-Tiers will be considered for upgrading to A-Tier status in 2020.
The pro added cash requirement for A-Tiers was increased to $3,000 at the start of the 2018 season. Please see the current Tour Standards for more information.
