How do I qualify to play in the USADGC?**NOTE: Invitations get sent to the email addresses the players have on file with the PDGA. Please verify your PDGA membership lists your currently used email. The USADGC event will have a staggered tiered registration process beginning in March with players who have a rating of 940 and above. Invitations get sent to the players who have ratings above 940 shortly after the April PDGA ratings update. 1. Qualifying is your first step to compete for the USADGC title. 2. Receiving your invitation is step two. Again, make sure your email address on file with the PDGA is current. 3. Registering for the USADGC is your final step. You MUST register for the event following the directions outlined on your invitation.

Are there any divisions? For example Masters?There is only one division: Amateur. No age or gender protected divisions are offered. You have to play in the MA1 PDGA division in a qualifier or have a high enough amateur Player Rating to be eligible to qualify. That means if you are a woman of "master's" age, you still have to play in the MA1 division of a qualifier or have a high enough player rating to qualify. Rule 804.08 of the PDGA rules of play states, "...Female players may compete in male divisions if they choose...". The reasoning behind this is that if you are good enough to be playing for the U.S. Amateur title, you are good enough to play in the toughest Amateur division to qualify.
I qualified, but I still might not get in?"There is a possibility that even if you qualify, you may not get into the tournament. The reason is many PDGA disc golfers would like to earn the title of the United State Amateur Disc Golf Champion. There is a high number of talented Amateur players registered with the PDGA but the USADGC field is limited to 156 players. Last year we invited over 1000 players and the event filled in record time. Invitations will be sent out in groups based on the published dates so it is important to register as soon as possible. The PDGA and USADGC staff understands what a commitment it is to register in March or April for an event across the country in June and understand that life sometimes gets in the way. Injuries, work, family obligations are all reasons why a player may have to back out from their registration. Therefore, if you do get an invitation and the event is full, we cannot stress enough how important it is for you to register to be on the waitlist. If you do not register in time and do not get on the waitlist, there is a very little chance you can compete on the Toboggan course for the United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship.
Do I have to pay to get into the park?Yes. While the fee to play the course during the tournament is covered by your tournament entry fees, players will be responsible for the park pass.
