In 2013, the PDGA started an initiative to increase women’s participation in disc golf events while also raising money for an incredibly important cause, the fight against cancer. Each year during the month of October, the PDGA donates $2 for every female that competes in a PDGA-sanctioned event to charity. In 2016, the organization selected was the Dempsey Center.
We have been steadily working away on the details for the 2016 PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE) since our Save The Date announcement in November. Thank you to all who have written and have expressed interest and support for the 2016 WGE on May 14th, the third running of this amazing biennial worldwide event!
Our inaugural Women's Global Event in 2012 was a huge success and made history as the largest PDGA event for a single demographic within the sport of disc golf. 41 registered tournaments, reaching across 24 states and 4 countries (including United States, Norway, Finland and Australia) resulted in a turnout of 636 women in 15 different PDGA divisions.
