For Immediate Release
2016 PDGA Women’s Global Event to be held on May 14, 2016
North Plains, Oregon, May 4, 2016- Local women’s disc golf clubs, The Chick Flick and Women of DGOD, will be taking part in the 2016 PDGA Women’s Global Event this year! The Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) will be hosting the 3rd edition of this women’s event. The PDGA Women’s Global Event is a collaboration of smaller women’s disc golf tournaments being run around the world, which makes it the largest PDGA event for a single demographic within the sport of disc golf. In 2014, there were 61 registered tournaments, spanning 28 states and 6 countries which resulted in a turnout of 1,060 women competing in 17 different PDGA divisions. As of April 22, 2016, we are already crushing those records, with over 1,400 registered players playing in 62 events across 8 countries.
Our local Women’s Global Event, The Chick Flick and Women of DGOD Present the Women’s Global Event! will take place at Horning’s Hideout in North Plains, Oregon, on May 14, 2016, starting at 8am and lasting until approximately 6pm with additional fun events running into the evening.
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee®. The sport was formalized in the 1970's, and shares with traditional golf the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, least number of throws). Permanent disc golf courses are located in 36 countries worldwide – and over 3,200 courses can be found throughout the United States and Canada.
We are encouraging ladies from the local community to come play disc golf! Our event is the largest participating Women’s Global Event in the world so come take a look at what women’s disc golf in the Portland metro area is all about. Please contact Cindy McMahan at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on this popular women-only disc golf event happening right in your backyard! Our event is nearly full but spectators are always welcome. Ladies will be available after the event to answer any questions you may have. Look for us in the red shirts! While the event itself is free, please be advised that Horning’s Hideout has a $4 day use fee. Come out and watch the fun!
This event not only encourages women to enjoy some outdoor exercise, the 2016 Women’s Global Event will be supporting the global charity Right To Play, a global organization that uses the transformative power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity. Through playing sports and games, Right To Play helps over one million children learn to create better futures, while driving lasting social change in 18 countries each week.
