Professional Disc Golf AssociationFounded in 1976, the Professional Disc Golf Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to promotion of the sport of disc golf worldwide. Its 40,000 plus members live and play in more than twenty countries on five continents. The PDGA writes the rules for disc golf, provides members with a full-color magazine, and is a source of information about the sport.
Every year the PDGA sanctions competitions for professional and amateur players. Competitors earn points by participating in these events, which are tabulated by the PDGA, and used to determine invitations to the annual World Professional and Amateur Disc Golf Championships.
The PDGA is the governing body for the sport. Besides scheduling the Pro Tour, the PDGA provides rules of play, equipment specifications, a newsletter, and a directory of the more than 2600 disc golf courses world wide.
