Steve,

Could you please elaborate a bit more on where you recommend us to enter? For many of us, this will be our first PDGA tourney, and the ten zillion membership types offered by the PDGA are still a bit of a mystery.

Will PDGA memberships be sold on site, or will we have to get them in advance from http://pdga.com/membership_form.pdf ?

Pro division - $60 ($40 USD)
Amateur division - $35 ($25 USD)
Intermediate division - $35 ($25 USD)
Novice division - $35 ($25 USD)
Junior division - $20 (Sunday only)

What are the differences in these divisions? Do they all get ranked by the PDGA? What is the cutoff year-of-birth for Juniors?

PDGA memberships will be available at the tournament, however you may want to register in advance. This would definitely make Saturday registration easier.

Just received my membership in the mail, the package included:
1) 150g Leopard, PDGA logo on disc
2) PDGA marker disc, has my PDGA membership # stamped on it
3) quarterly World Disc Golf Magazine
4) PDGA rule book
5) PDGA membership card
6) PDGA bumper sticker
7) small PDGA sticker
Cool PDGA borchure

Thanks, Steve

What division should I play in?

This will depend on your skill level and competitive level, however here is a rough guide when deciding which division to play in.

Pro - this is a prize purse and will have strong golfers competition.

Amateur Divisions - these divisions don't pay out as well as Pro, plus all prizes are trophies or merchandise (no $$$)
Advanced, -3 and lower
Intermediate, +2 and lower
Novice, +2 and above *** This would be your score from the Long (original) tee pads.
