JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. – The Professional Disc Golf Association has announced the 2020 PDGA Professional Masters Disc Golf World Championships will be held Aug. 22-29, 2020 in Johnson City and surrounding communities.
This week-long, international competition is the premier disc golf event with professional disc golfers competing in age based male and female divisions for World Championship Titles.
The 2020 event is projected to attract more than 300 athletes with their family, friends, and fans from across the United States and overseas. The competition will feature doubles play, field events, social events, multiple rounds of singles play, and fundraising events to create an annual “take a kid disc golfing” day.
Tim Barr of the Warriors Lakefront Disc Golf Club and the Johnson City Convention and Visitors Bureau collaborated to submit a bid proposal to host the event. This marks the second time the two entities have teamed up with other community partners, such as Johnson City Parks and Recreation and Harmon Hills Disc Golf Course, to host a PDGA Major. In 2017, Johnson City hosted the US Women’s Disc Golf National Championship. This milestone event was the largest women only disc golf event ever hosted with 158 player representing six countries.
