Play at a discounted rate
When you sign up for C tier PDGA-sanctioned event as a current PDGA member, you’ll be able to register for $10 less than non-members (in the USA and Canada only). Play a few tournaments and the membership essentially pays for itself.
Track your improvement
PDGA members have access to a personal player page that keeps track of their lifetime player ratings and statistics as well as other resources and tools benefitting the competition experience. Your PDGA player page will be updated with your personal rating every time your most recent competition results are official, which helps to show your improvement as a player against others in the sport and helps guide which division you should play in. Compete more, improve, and watch your player points add up to qualifications in PDGA World Championship tournaments.
PDGA memberships fund the PDGA’s support of tournament directors and organizers via dedicated staff and event management tools - making the playing experience better for all ages and ability levels. The Event Support Team works seven days a week, providing real, live support to keep all 8,900+ PDGA events running smoothly. This is a significant initiative for 2023 and beyond.
Your Membership, Your Voice
PDGA members can help shape the future of the sport by running for a spot on the Board of Directors, contributing as a vital volunteer in the form of a State or Provincial Coordinator, or simply voting in the organization’s annual elections.
Additional discounts to benefit members while they play
PDGA members are given discounts at various organizations including: travel accommodations such as lodging and car rental, printing, eyewear and more.
New members in the US and Canada also receive a custom stamped PDGA disc and mini, a $20 value.
