About this tournament

All are welcome to this event! Come be a part of improving Pierce County courses and growing the sport of disc golf in the greater Pierce County area!

This year's Pierce County Disc Golf Players Association (PCDGPA) membership commencement event will be run as an XC-Tier Pro/Am ratings-based tournament held at Fort Steilacoom Disc Golf Course. The tournament will consist of 2 rounds of play on February 13th. Our goals for this event are to connect you to the competitive disc golf community in Pierce County, raise funds for planned course improvements, and build a club that reflects the diverse player base in our area. Membership is the most vital part of what makes disc golf possible in Pierce County as all membership dues are directly allocated to the club's budgets for operation, maintenance, and improvement of Pierce County courses.

All registrants will be required to add the "2021 PCDGPA Membership" item ($25) on the event registration page. If you have already signed up for your 2021 PCDGPA Membership on a previous date, please refer to the email sent out to current members on 1/1/2021. The email includes a discount code for this event which you may apply during registration to negate the cost of the required membership add-on.
