PLAYER EXPERIENCE

memberbenefits-dollar2.png

Avoid extra fees!

Current PDGA members pay $10 less than non-members at every PDGA-sanctioned C-tier event in the USA and Canada. Play a handful of tournaments and the membership pays for itself!

Track your performance

Every PDGA member gets their own personal player profile that keeps track of their lifetime event history, player ratings and statistics. Your PDGA player profile will be updated with your personal player rating every month based on your most recent event results, which gauges your performance 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 qualify for the PDGA World Championships every year.

Event support

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.

International membership: Because each national association may also charge a fee, players outside of the US/Canada have a membership price of just $20 for Amateur / Junior and $30 for Professional.
