The 2016 PDGA World Championships will head to Emporia, Kansas with Jeremy Rusco and Dynamic Discs being the hosts. Rusco and Dynamic Discs are certainly no stranger to larger tournaments as they just wrapped up the 2015 Glass Blown Open with 900 competitors and played host to the 2013 PDGA Amateur World Championships. The idea of a Glass Blown Open taken to the next level for pros is exciting. Pro Worlds will be held in August 2016.

The 2016 PDGA Amateur World Championships will head to Madison, Wisconsin and will be directed by Mike Batka. The Madison Area Disc Club and Madison Area Sports Commission will also be involved. Madison is known for many high quality courses and should be a great host for Am Worlds in July 2016.

Sabattus, Maine will play host to the 2016 PDGA United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship in September 2016. Peter Ruby and the Sabattus Disc Golf Complex will be the hosts with Jason Rubito, the PDGA State Coordinator for Maine, serving as Tournament Director.

Finally, the 2016 PDGA Tim Selinske United States Masters Championships will return to Selinske’s home state of California. The Selinske Masters will be held in Stockton, California and directed by Craig “Krash” Gustafson and the Delta Windjammers.

These four tournaments join the United States Disc Golf Championship (Rock Hill, South Carolina), National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships (North Augusta, South Carolina), and United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship (Milford, Michigan) for 2016.
