Competition Manual for Disc Golf Events


  1. All PDGA members should refrain from any conduct which is detrimental to the game of disc golf and to the PDGA, both on and off the course.
  2. All players must abide by the PDGA Official Rules of Disc Golf and the PDGA Competition Manual.
  3. Players are not permitted to have audible mobile phones or audible pagers on the course during any competitive round. In addition, personal music players and other devices must be used exclusively with personal headphones and the volume must be kept at a level so as not to be heard by other players, prevent the player from effectively interacting with his group during scorekeeping tasks, or provide a safety hazard for the player by not hearing “Fore!” calls from other players or warning blasts by the Tournament Director. Failure to interact fully with your playing group due to personal music players and other devices is considered a courtesy violation subject to courtesy violation rules and penalties.
  4. Animals may not accompany players with the exception of players whose disability or medical condition requires the use of an accredited service animal. Players are required to notify the Tournament Director of accredited service animal usage during play.
  5. The PDGA reserves the right to determine and enforce further disciplinary action upon its players and members, which may result in probation or suspension from PDGA-sanctioned events or permanent loss of PDGA membership. For more information see the PDGA disciplinary policies and procedures.
