Due to the uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent PDGA Board of Directors’ decision to suspend PDGA sanctioning of events through March 31, 2020, the PDGA Women’s Global Event on May 9 has been postponed indefinitely.

The 2010s saw exponential growth for both disc golf and the PDGA. We’re looking back on a phenomenal 10 years in our Decade on Display series, where we reflect and reminisce about the sport’s successes both on and off the course. Keep an eye out for more through the end of 2019.

Promote Your Business with Disc Golf's Most Popular Women's Event

Join the PDGA and the PDGA Women’s Committee in promoting disc golf’s most popular women’s event, the PDGA Women’s Global Event (WGE) on May 9, 2020.

The WGE is a biennial women’s disc golf tournament consisting of smaller events run simultaneously on the same day around the world. The event is open to all comers to discover and enjoy disc golf. It is our mission to offer a friendly, competitive event while encouraging more women and girls to be physically active through disc golf.

After a grueling day of golf in unseasonably warm temperatures at Hawk Hollow DGC, a two-way tie for the lead has emerged between Paige Pierce and Kristin Tattar, with the rest of the field five or more strokes behind. With only Sunday’s round remaining at Loriella Park, it’s certainly shaping up to be an intense fight to the finish for the 2019 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship title.

Unseasonably warm might be a bit of an understatement. It was just plain hot. With many of the holes lacking shade, the 95 degree heat index was slowly but surely taking its toll on the players.

The opening day of the single largest women’s event in PDGA history, the 2019 US Women’s Disc Golf Championship (USWDGC), went off on Friday without a hitch. 166 women took to the tees with 16 divisions of amateurs and pros spread out across four courses in the greater Fredericksburg, Virginia area.

Another year, another record turnout for the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship (USWDGC). Renowned Virginia club Spotsy Disc Golf will serve as host for this year’s USWDGC, which now boasts not only the largest Open Women’s division in PDGA history at 52, but also the single largest women’s field in PDGA history with 169 players.

Another year, another record broken. 

In 1999, Harold Duvall ran what would be considered the first United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships (1999 Women’s National Championships) in Charlotte, North Carolina, hosting a field of 21 women between two divisions. Now, 19 years later, the number of competitors has grown eight-fold, as 160-plus have made the trek to Lansing, Michigan, for their shot at the national title.
