2024 Vic Tour

We’re going big. More events, more points. Get Involved.

We are making a number of changes to the structure of the Disc Golf Victoria Tour for 2024.

All changes have been made based on feedback received from players throughout the 2023 season. 

  • The best change is that we are doubling the number of events (we currently have seven locked in, with three more in the works).
  • Another big change is that we are not charging you to become a member. This means that everyone that enters a tour event is eligible to score points (assuming they have a PDGA rating). You will need to have signed up to the DGV site. You can do that here
  • Registration for all tour events will be done right here on the Disc Golf Victoria website. So you will always know where to go to sign up for an event.

See more specific information about the tour below. 
We hope you are as excited as we are for the new structure.

Each tour event will be classed depending on two factors; player capacity, and number of holes. This year there are three tiers, Platinum, Gold and Silver, with different points available for each.

  • Platinum: Minimum capacity 150 players. Minimum number of holes 54.
  • Gold: Minimum capacity 100 players. Minimum number of holes 36.
  • Silver: Minimum capacity 72 players. Minimum number of holes 36.

There will be five categories for the 2024 tour, these categories are based on PDGA ratings. You will automatically fit in a category based on your PDGA rating at the time of the event (the division you have entered for the tournament is irrelevant). You will be competing for tour points against players of a similar skill level to you (regardless of the division).

There will be an additional category that is just for the female identifying players. These players will still score points in the other categories, but will also score points in this additional category.

Here is the breakdown of each category :

  • Category 1: PDGA Rating 930+
  • Category 2: PDGA Rating 890-929
  • Category 3: PDGA Rating 850-889
  • Category 4: PDGA Rating 810-849
  • Category 5: PDGA Rating < 809
  • Womens: All female identifying players

You can score points for every event you enter, however, only your six highest scoring events for the year will contribute to your overall score.

The number of points available for each event depends on the tier of that event. The higher the tier, the more points, and the more people receive points. 

  • Platinum: The winner receives 100 points, and the top 20 players score points.
  • Gold: The winner receives 80 points, and the top 16 players score points.
  • Silver: The winner receives 65 points, and the top 13 players score points.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does this mean there will no longer be 'X' division at a tournament?

All tournaments will run as normal with the divisions decided by the tournament organisers.

The system for collating tour points sits outside the tournament, we just use the data from those tournaments to calculate the tour points.

What happens to my points if my PDGA rating improves and I move up a category?

You score points for the category based on your PDGA rating at the time of the tournament. If your rating goes up or down and puts you into another category, you will score points in that category.

The points do not carry over between categories, and it is possible to score points for multiple categories depending on the consistency of your rating.

This current system is not ideal for a player whose rating hovers around the cut off line between two categories, and we are looking at potential changes that factor this in.

Do all events contribute to the total score?

You can score points for every event you enter, however, only your six highest scoring events for the year will contribute to your overall score.
