Seeking Hosts for 2026 & 2027 PDGA Majors

Seeking Hosts for 2026 & 2027 PDGA Majors

Bids are due October 1

Monday, June 3, 2024 - 14:04

Proposals to host a prestigious PDGA Major — pinnacle events of the disc golf world — will be accepted from June 3 through October 1, 2024. This is a unique opportunity to showcase your expertise, your passion for the sport and your local area on a global stage.

The PDGA will be accepting bids for 2026 and 2027 at this time. If there are no viable bids for 2027, all bid submissions will be considered for 2026, and the bid documents for 2027 will be re-issued in 2025.

This includes the PDGA United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship, the PDGA Tim Selinske U.S. Masters Championship, the PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships, the PDGA Masters Disc Golf World Championships, the PDGA Junior World Championships, and the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships.

The PDGA will continue prioritizing specific PDGA Major events fairly and transparently, aiming to provide more balanced and viable opportunities for our Hosts by reducing the potential for geographic conflict. Should the PDGA not receive viable bids for both Masters Worlds and U.S. Masters during a particular bid cycle, or if the only viable bids for both are from regions within geographic proximity, the PDGA will prioritize Masters Worlds and not hold a U.S. Masters event during that year.

To clarify the crossover of certain female divisions held at multiple National Championship events, the PDGA will award national titles to all female divisions at the U.S. Women’s Disc Golf Championships, which will take precedence over the winners of those divisions at the U.S. Masters. This means the winners of the female-only (Pro and Amateur) divisions at the U.S. Masters are not national championship titles, as those national titles are only awarded at the U.S. Women’s Disc Golf Championships. 

“The PDGA is looking forward to accepting bids for 2026 and 2027.  The change will allow the Operations and Logistics team to evaluate the location and organizing committee more thoroughly.  I’m excited to see the various bids and locations,” PDGA Director of Competition Rebecca Duffy said. “We are ready to take our Majors to another level and can’t do that without a strong local organizing committee. We can’t wait to receive and review bids for these future events!”

The PDGA seeks hosts and encourages bids worldwide for each of its World Championships. An experienced disc golf club, non-profit or for-profit businesses, an individual working in conjunction with a community sports commission, visitor’s bureau, and/or facilities owner can submit a bid to host an event. U.S. National Championships must be contested within the U.S.

All bids are reviewed by PDGA Staff and the Board of Directors, and a host is selected based on the experience with running a large, sanctioned disc golf event, contents of the bid, suitable facilities, the proximity of courses/venues to each other, as well as various other requirements.

The 2026-2027 PDGA Majors Bid Packages can be viewed and/or downloaded from the documents section at the bottom of the PDGA Major events page. By awarding the bid to host these events in January 2025, the eventual Hosts will be provided ample time to ensure a high-quality experience for all PDGA Major event competitors, supporters, and spectators.

We want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the many dedicated volunteers, tournament directors, event sponsors, city hosts, and everyone involved in making these events possible. Your contributions are invaluable, and we look forward to the future of these great PDGA Major championships.
