Last updated: Wednesday, May 1, 2024 - 16:02

  1. PDGA Leagues are the lowest Tier of PDGA-sanctioned events. Rather than a single tournament, Leagues feature one round per week, on the same day of the week each week, for six to ten consecutive weeks (e.g., eight consecutive Mondays, or ten consecutive Fridays). Leagues may skip a week due to weather or other extenuating circumstances upon approval of PDGA staff.
  2. Every player must play the same layout during a given League round, but layouts and courses may vary week to week.A maximum of two layouts on the same course may be used in a given League round, but layouts and courses may vary week to week.
  3. The Official Rules of Disc Golf and the Competition Manual apply to PDGA League play, with the following exceptions:
    1. Non-current members and non-members do not pay a non-member temporary membership fee to compete in Leagues (see 1.01.B.2).
    2. Players may win cash prizes without having a PDGA member number (see 1.10.A).
    3. Amateur players may accept cash prizes without affecting their Amateur status (see 2.01.G).
    4. Where local law and event venue rules permit, players who are of legal age to do so may use or display alcohol between the two-minute signal and submitting their scorecard (see 3.03.B.5). However, players still may not drink to excess or be publicly intoxicated (see 3.03.B.6).
    5. Children under 13 who are accompanying a group may be supervised by an adult in the playing group (see 1.13.A). Children under 13 accompanying the playing group are subject to the provisions of 812, Courtesy, and 3.03, with any penalties incurred by that child applied to the supervising player.
    6. The provisions of 1.06.A and B do not apply to Leagues.
