Throw Pink Announces the Inaugural Throw Pink Women’s Disc Golf Championship


We are excited to announce the Inaugural Throw Pink Women’s Disc Golf Championship. The 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.



All current, dues-paid members in good standing of the Professional Disc Golf Association are eligible to qualify for the 2021 Throw Pink Women’s Women’s Disc Golf Championship). All competitors must have a current PDGA membership and must have passed the PDGA Official certification exam in order to compete. Those gaining eligibility should register for the event as quickly as possible.
