Throw Pink Women's Disc Golf Championship
Championship Week at Winthrop in 2021 will include the inaugural Throw Pink Women’s Disc Golf Championship, an event that will run concurrently with the USDGC. Forty of the game’s best female athletes will return to the legendary Winthrop Arena Course, which has hosted 27 Major Championship events dating back to the Professional World Championships in 1997.
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 2021, 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.
Registration for the Throw Pink Women’s Disc Golf Championship will open for eligible competitors shortly after the first qualifying event in Las Vegas. We look forward to seeing you there!
