PDGA Amateur Disc Golf Championships Fly into York County

Multiple locations across the county welcome players

YORK, PA – For the first time, Explore York will welcome the PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships to York County in 2019. For one week, 800 players from around the world will compete on courses across the county, generating an estimated economic impact of more than $1.18 million.  

During the tournament, players from ages 16 to 80 will play in several divisions spread out at courses throughout the area. Courses will be played at Heritage Hills, Codorus State Park, Codorus Township Park, Muddy Run, Ship Rock and more. Spectators are welcome, and there is no admissions charge to watch the competitions.

Bringing this tournament to York County was made possible in part by a grant awarded in the 2017 Round 2 application process. This $10,000 grant was used as part of the bidding process for the PDGA.

In addition to tournament play, PDGA will also hold a Fly Mart, which will be open to the public, on Tuesday, July 23 at 7:30 p.m. at the Wyndham Garden and a Harley Davidson Player Party at PeoplesBank Park Thursday, July 25 from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. The Player Party is not open to the public.
