Sunset Ridge DGC

What is the Director's Cup?
The Professional Disc Golf Association invites all of our Tournament Directors, State Coordinators, PDGA volunteers, and other representatives to join us for the 6th Annual PDGA Director's Cup presented by the PDGA. This exclusive invitation-only event will take place at the Sunset Ridge Disc Golf Course in Hudson, FL on the weekend of November 3-4, 2018.

The Director's Cup is an educational event designed for our volunteers that help make the PDGA and the sport of disc golf a success. The tournament portion of the event will be 2 rounds, one on Saturday and one on Sunday with attendees competing in ratings based divisions for donated prizes.

The 2018 PDGA Director’s Cup will feature multiple instruction seminars, interactive learning experiences, and two rounds of disc golf on the on-site championship level disc golf courses. The PDGA staff is more than happy to answer specific questions during the breaks and during the open discussion.
