All current, dues-paid members in good standing of the Professional Disc Golf Association are eligible to qualify for the 2022 Throw Pink Women’s Disc Golf Championship (TPWDGC). The TPWDGC is a PDGA A-tier, therefore all competitors must have a current PDGA membership and must have passed the PDGA Official certification exam in order to compete. Those gaining TPWDGC eligibility should register for the event as quickly as possible.
The Throw Pink Women's Championship represents another chapter in the rich tournament history at Winthrop. The original Women’s National Championship was held at Winthrop in 1999, 2000, and again in 2001 after being renamed the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship.
The WNC returned to Winthrop in 2020 after pandemic conditions forced the cancellation of the US Women’s Disc Golf Championship scheduled earlier in the year. The 2020 WNC and USDGC turned out to be the only two Majors of the 2020 season.
With the US Women’s Disc Golf Championship expected to return in 2022, tournament organizers agreed not to use the term “National” (Champion) to avoid any degree of confusion with the USWDGC Champion in the Open Women Division.
All previous Throw Pink Women’s Disc Golf Champions receive an automatic invitation to the 2022 USDGC.
Note: Exempt athletes must register on or before August 31, 2022. Competitors who miss their deadline automatically forfeit their spot.
You must be qualified to register for this event! Private links are sent to each competitor and cannot be shared with non-qualified disc golfers.

A total of 2 spots will be available at each of the events listed below. Competitors who participate in TPWDGC qualifying events that are already eligible will be excluded from the qualifying process. In case of a tie for the final qualifying spot, the tournament director should hold a sudden-death playoff to determine the winner.

Women and girls of all skill levels are welcome! It all starts with a disc golf instructional clinic at 1 pm that will get new players on their feet and refine the skills of those that have played before. Then, a casual round will follow on a beginner-friendly temporary course (last year's spectator course on the traditional golf course) designed by Andrew Duvall, the current USDGC and TPWDGC course designer.
