USDGC 2024


In an effort to bring best disc golfers together, the USDGC combines all players who qualify into a single division. Virtually every other disc golf tournament in the world offers divisions based on age, gender and skill level.

USDGC overview

All current, dues-paid members in good standing of the Professional Disc Golf Association are eligible to qualify for the 2024 United States Disc Golf Championship (USDGC). The USDGC is a PDGA Major, therefore all competitors must have a current PDGA membership and must have passed the PDGA Official certification exam in order to compete.
