ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Disc golf is growing faster than ever, and Championship Week at Winthrop University is just around the corner. 

With the addition of the Women’s National Championship (WNC), Winthrop is hosting the only Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) Majors in 2020. Competitors and volunteers are expected from all over the country to participate.

United States Disc Golf Championship (USDGC) Doubles will take place on Oct. 2-4, followed by Monday qualifying rounds on Oct. 5. Singles competition for both the WNC and USDGC will run Oct. 7-10. All of the action will be played on Winthrop’s Gold Course.

For the first time, the Championship Week pay-per-view live stream will include all four rounds of both the WNC and USDGC. Additional coverage includes the Disc Golf Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony and presentation of the Golden Rake Award for outstanding volunteer service. 

Also for the first time in tournament history, spectators will not be permitted inside the Winthrop Athletics, Recreation and Research Area. The event will operate under a 250-person maximum group size, as mandated by the State of South Carolina and Winthrop officials.
