Guide To Determining Your Division:

Professional - These are the most skilled players in Disc Golf. Experience usually runs a minimum of (5) or more years with some older players with (20+) years. Part of their Professional status includes the responsibility for "passing the torch" by teaching other players the correct course etiquette and behavior along with the rules and standards of tournament play. Virtually all Professional Disc Golf players are members of the Professional Disc Golf Association. Professional players typically compete for monetary prizes
.

Advanced - These players are usually long time players of (3+ years) and regularly score under par. Many are active PDGA members and play organized tournaments as well.

Intermediate - Most of these players have a few years of experience (1-3) but don't consistently play under par. Some will be active PDGA members and most will have played organized tournaments.

Recreational - Just like it sounds - these players play casually, sometimes a few times a week, but lack competitve training and rarely play under par. These players might not even be aware of the PDGA or it's rules that govern play.

Novice - Strictly for new players that have either never played Disc Golf or just a handful of times.

Junior - Reserved for players under 17 years old. Skill levels typically of the Recreational or Novice divisions.
