Competition Manual for Disc Golf Events


  1. All members in good standing of the PDGA are eligible to compete in any division for which they qualify based upon class (Professional or Amateur), age, gender, and player rating. Exceptions must be approved in advance by the PDGA Director of Event Support. Please see Section 2: Division Qualifications for more specific information on division eligibility.
  2. Membership Requirements:
    1. Current PDGA Membership is required to compete in any Major, Elite Series, A-Tier, or B-Tier event.
    2. In all other PDGA-sanctioned events, players who are not current members may compete by paying a non-member fee (not required for Leagues, see 1.14.C.1).
    3. In PDGA-sanctioned events which permit non-members or non-current members to compete by paying a non-member fee, such a fee will not apply to players competing in Junior divisions or where the requirement has been waived by the PDGA Director of Event Support (e.g., WGE or Competition Endowment Program events).
