Under sunny skies once again, the record-setting field of women took to the tees for the final round of the 2017 US Women's Disc Golf Championships in Johnson City, Tennessee. Paige Pierce went into the final round one ahead of Catrina Allen while the many other divisions at the event were dealing with close battles of their own at the top of the leaderboards.

Back-to-back four and a half hour rounds is enough to suck the life right out of anyone, yet the ladies here at the 2017 United States Womens Disc Golf Championships presented by Prodigy Disc finished the day with ease. They may have been a bit tired, but it didn’t stop them from having plenty of fun in the sun at Harmon Hills just outside of Johnson City, Tennessee.

Round 1 of the 2017 United States Women's Disc Golf Championship presented by Prodigy Disc came to an end this afternoon as a record-setting number of women took to the tees at Winged Deer Park and Harmon Hills. Mother nature seems to be on our side here in beautiful Johnson City, Tennessee, as the perfect weather today is forecasted to be just as perfect for the two rounds tomorrow and the final round on Sunday.

With all of the events happening in downtown Johnson City this weekend, parking spots for the USWDGC Putting Competition tonight will be a bit difficult to find. However, we do have a parking lot reserved and there is a free parking garage located fairly close as well. See the embedded map below for direct navigation instructions to the best parking areas.



If you are scheduled to play Winged Deer Park this morning (A-Pool), please know that we are currently on a 1-hour delay while the Parks Department is cutting down a tree that is hanging dangerously over the basket of hole 2. The change in tee times has been updated on the event results page at

Thank you please spread the word!

At tonight’s US Women’s Disc Golf Championships Players Meeting, surrounded by the largest women-only field of competitors in the history of the sport, two of the most cherished representatives and volunteers of disc golf, Bill and Mary Ann Wallis, known by most as simply “Old Man and Mom” became PDGA Eagle Club members. An Eagle Club membership typically means a donation of $2000 or more to the PDGA but in the case of Mom and Old Man, no amount of money was needed, nor would it have ever been accepted.

Just to put it into perspective, an honorary Eagle Club membership has only been awarded a few times in PDGA history, the most notable being “Steady” Ed Headrick, PDGA member #001.

The 2017 US Women’s Disc Golf Championships (USWDGC) has finally arrived and with it comes a record-setting 160 women, three pristine courses, and a weekend chock-full of fun and excitement here in beautiful Johnson City, Tennessee.

Tournament Director Tim Barr, Asst. TD Chuck Connolly, the Johnson City Convention & Visitor’s Bureau, and a slew of others have put in hundreds of hours of work for this PDGA Major event. After seeing the courses and the schedule of events it’s clear that the hard work has paid off. Johnson City is primed and ready to put on an amazing event this weekend.
