How to Qualify

New for 2022!

The USDGC Doubles is beyond excited to announce our first-ever Amateur Women's Division. This division will play on a modified version of the Throw Pink Women's Disc Golf Championship layout at the famed Winthrop Arena Course as well as a modified version of the Camp Canaan Riverbend Gold course.

We are also proud to announce the new "Win and You're In" registration process. For this year's main event for both men and women's divisions, if you win your regional qualifier you will be able to sign up for the Main Event immediately. Second and third place teams where applicable for qualifying events will be able to register at a later date once general registration opens for qualified players.

First Things, First: Get Qualified.

To compete in the USDGC Doubles Main Event (Sep 30 - Oct 2, 2022), teams have to qualify through a local qualifier. Players, keep an eye out for qualifiers in your area at Disc Golf United.

If you don’t see one near you, encourage your local club to host a USDGC Qualifier. It’s fun and easy to run a qualifier and there is profit built into the event for the organizers to use as they see fit.

At each USDGC Doubles Qualifier, every player gets a custom USDGC Doubles premium disc. The Qualifier Winners receive trophy medals and invitations to the USDGC Doubles Main Event in Rock Hill, SC.
