2020 USDGC Update

This October, the US Disc Golf Championship is expected to return to Winthrop University for the 22nd consecutive year from October 7-10, 2020. The road to the 2020 USDGC has taken more detours than anyone could have imagined, however, it has increased the desire to see a United States Champion crowned this fall.

Women’s National Championship

We are also honored to announce the return of the Women’s National Championship to Winthrop. The US Women’s Disc Golf Championship was unfortunately canceled earlier this year due to COVID-19. Our goal with the Women’s National Championship is to provide top professional women an event of their own to look forward to and to crown a Women’s National Champion in 2020 as well.

This will be a homecoming of sorts, as competition for the Women’s National Championship returns to Winthrop for the first time since 2000. The first three PDGA Majors used to determine a Women’s National Champion took place at Winthrop alongside the USDGC from 1999-2001. The event name transitioned to “USWDGC” in 2001 and is still in use today.
