How to Run a Qualifier

Thinking about running a USDGC Doubles Qualifier? You’ve come to the right place. Here’s how to get started.

Create an Event

First, organize a doubles tournament with 1 to 2 rounds of Best Shot format. The event does not need to be PDGA sanctioned.

  • Format must be BYOP (bring your own partner). Captain's choice (best shot) doubles is preferred but not mandatory.  Events can be as simple as 1 round.

All skill levels may play in the USDGC Doubles Qualifier, however only the top amateur division will be competing for an invite to the USDGC Doubles Main Event in Rock Hill SC on Sep 30 - Oct 2, 2022.

Next, Drop Us a Line

Send an email to with the following information:

  • Your contact information
  • The name, date, and location of the Qualifying Event


Applications are going to be accepted Jan 15th to Aug 15th and the qualifiers must all be run by Sept 5th, 2022.
