The partnership between the PDGA and UDisc continues to grow.
Already the official app of the PDGA, UDisc and disc golf’s governing body have re-upped their commitment for 2020. That means PDGA members can count on another year of a free upgrade to UDisc Pro as part of their benefits package, among other bonuses.
Since the inaugural PDGA Europe Board of Directors elections were held 2 years ago, PDGA Europe has been going through the process of formation as our association’s legal and largely self-governing continental body for Europe. In recent months registration as a not-for-profit in Finland has been completed and our first permanent staff persons have been hired and trained. Now it is time to move PDGA Europe forward by envisioning, building and managing activities that have the overriding aim of growing disc golf into the future, in concert with our individual members, sanctioned events, and national association partners across Europe.
The PDGA Europe Board of Directors is pleased to announce the successful candidates in its recent search for the 2 employees that will be leading our continental arm of PDGA Global forward. Yrjö “George the Volunteer” Munukka of Espoo, Finland, has been hired as full-time Administrator, while Matej Verl from Prague, Czech Republic, is our new Tour Manager.
PDGA Europe is pleased to announce that Finland’s Seppo Paju and Estonia’s Kristin Tattar have won its prestigious 2018 PDGA Europe Player of the Year awards, both for the first time ever, based on their consistently stellar level of play throughout 2018.

During PDGA Europe's latest Board of Directors teleconference, held October 24th, 2017, the current PDGA Europe Board members voted for its officer positions. Each Board of Directors has its President, Vice-President, Secretary, and Treasurer to define roles and responsibilities within the governance structure, and in communicating with the outside world.
The Professional Disc Golf Association announces that Hans Nagtegaal has resigned from the PDGA Global Board of Directors due to professional reasons effective August 1, 2017. As the current Interim PDGA Europe Administrator, Hans will focus his efforts on establishing PDGA Europe operations as well as transitioning the newly elected PDGA Europe Board of Directors into their roles beginning September 1, 2017. The PDGA is currently exploring options for filling the position left vacant due to this resignation.
This is a historic occasion for disc golf and for the PDGA in Europe! As detailed in the PDGA Europe Transition Concept Paper section of the International Program Guide, over the past year the PDGA has begun the process of transitioning PDGA Europe from a Committee to our organization’s formalized and largely self-governing continental body for Europe.
