About the Dayton Disc Golf Association
The Dayton Disc Golf Association (DDGA) is a member funded, member organized entity that exists in order to provide disc golf events, education, exploration, and awareness to the residents of Dayton, OH and the surrounding communities. The DDGA has over 400 members (current and prior years). Annual DDGA membership is $20, includes a golf disc and comes with many other incentives and perks. The dues paid by members help the DDGA run annual local and Pro tournaments, design and install more courses, as well as provide other DDGA information (like this web site) and promotions that help us fulfill our bylaws by promoting the sport we all play and love; DISC GOLF. For more information on DDGA membership please view our Membership Page.
Currently, the DDGA runs an annual tournament series called the "Best in Dayton" series (or BID series) which consists of several tournaments run by the DDGA at local area courses. The BID series schedule for the year may include several events at any of our local or surrounding disc golf courses, and/or some temporary courses set up just for us, and sometime even multi-club courses in conjunction with other local clubs. Events are competitive and designed to help players of all skill levels play against disc golfers within their divisions.
Normally, divisional structures for the BID series are as follows:
Open (Pro players)
Open Masters (Pro's at 40 years of age or above)
Advanced AM I(Amateurs below the pro level)
Advanced Masters (Amateurs at 40 years of age or above)
Intermediate AM II (Amateurs below the Advanced level)
Recreational AM III (Amateurs below the Intermediate level)
Women (Female competitors)
Juniors (Competitive or casual players under the age of 18)
Competitors over the age of 40 are not required to play in a Masters division, and competitors under the age of 18 are not required to play in the Juniors division.
For more information on the "Best in Dayton" series please view our Events Page.
The Dayton area also has a number of annual Professional level tournaments that are sanctioned by the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA).
