The Women’s Global Event provides the opportunity for women from all around the world to play disc golf at their local participating Women's Global Event. Scores from the rounds of each participating tournament will be submitted and rated by the PDGA. These round ratings will be totaled and averaged to determine the player's "Global Score." The global winner in each division will receive a memorable trophy.
Disc golf is a growing sport; there is a large influx of courses being installed in the Boise area and in parks across the country. The reason for this, is that disc golf is an easy to play, low cost activity that appeals to many demographics of people who enjoy the outdoors. It is a sport played very similarly to golf in play and scoring but uses plastic discs and large metal baskets instead of clubs and ball holes.
