In Wisconsin, we have an active tour that tracks player’s scores for a series of tournaments. The tour provides the “most coveted” black disc for each division’s champion at each tour stop. At the end of the season, trophies are awarded to the state champion in each division at our end of the season finale.
There are 2 fees (or funds) that each player incurs while playing at all Wisconsin Disc Golf Tour stops. These extra monies are included in your entry fee for the tournament. First, we have a disc sports development fund that is collected from every player at each stop, this fee is $2. This money is made available for major upgrades on existing courses or installations of new courses here in the state. Second, we have a tour participation fee that pays for trophies and prizes/purse for the season finale. All Pro, Advanced, Intermediate and Recreational divisions pay $1 per tour stop into this fund. Juniors are not required to pay this fee.
A celebration of the WI Disc Golf Tour for the completed year.
A WI Tour Division Champion Award Ceremony and disc golf competition.
Host proposals wanted; send to the WDSA board before December of the year before the Finale you wish to host.
What are we looking for?
The host will secure 18-36 holes, parking, toilets, shelter, a plan for lunch on site, room for 4 vendors and electricity. What else can a host entice us with? No rents, the lunch plan, and added cash to defray finale costs. Or any cool ideas that the WI Tour does not need to be responsible for that will enhance the celebration.
WI Disc Golf Tour will direct the competition, the Division Champion Award Ceremony and anything that goes with those.
To be a Finale vendor: First pay - first reserve. A $30 non-refundable reservation deposit. Only 4 vendors and the host can vend as well.

Divisions recognized for black disc, points and tour champion
1. For divisions offered by the TD with 3 or more players, the tour will track points and offer a black disc to the division winner.
2. If a particular division is recognized and has participation at 5 or more events, the tour will award a Tour Champion for that division at the end of the season.
3. This is a points series meaning that the player earning the most points through the season becomes Tour Champion. (Point totals are from the player's best 8 tournaments.)
A note to players, Most TD's will be agreeable to include additional divisions if they are contacted in advance and if they are assured of having a minimum of players in that division. Also, players will only receive points in the division which they are registered. Example: In the past, if all Masters men played in the Open division, the best finishing Master would receive a black disc and masters points. Per the new rules, this will no longer be the practice. Black discs will only be awarded to divisions with 3 or more players.
Wisconsin Disc Golf Tour Division Champions & Tour Finale
In addition to the PDGA points you will earn on the tour at our stops, you will also earn Wisconsin points for your play on the tour. Participants will be awarded points based on their finish within their division. We award 100 points for first place regardless of the number within the division (3 person minimium). Points for the rest of the division will be a percentage of 100. For example if there are 4 players, first gets 100 points, 2nd gets 75 points, 3rd gets 50 points, and 4th 25 points. The intent is to evenly balance out the points awarded at smaller events with the larger attended events. These points you earn from your “best 8″ stops will help determine the divisional state champions for the season as well as who gets invited to the tour finale. We will only award spots to players based on their finish throughout the season. Make sure to play in as many events as you can to earn a spot.
Additional funds may be raised through fundraisers at any stop from the sale of merchandise. Please contribute generously to help make this a great tour that other states will look to as an example of a well-run, fun tour. We do this because we love it. Do not ever forget to keep it fun! For other specifics on any stop, contact the tournament director listed on the official tour calendar.
