May 12, 2012 is a day to mark in the history books of Women's Disc Golf. To follow in the footsteps of last year's Global Tournament, the PDGA and PDGA Women's Committee will be hosting the inaugural Women's Global Event. We invite women from all over the world to take part in this groundbreaking event!
The Chick Flick Women's Global Event will take place at Horning's Hideout both rounds on the Canyon Course.

So, What exactly is a Women's Global Event, you ask?
Here are the details: On May 12, 2012 women from all around the world will play two rounds of disc golf during their local global event. The scores for the two rounds will be submitted and rated by the PDGA. The round ratings will be added to determine the player's "Global Score."
For the rounds to qualify the event must include two rounds on the same layout on the same course and also have five players rated 800+ (male or female) to keep the ratings consistent across the competition. The global scores will be updated and ranked throughout the day to find our overall Women's Global Event Champions.
We will be offering all Pro and Am divisions and you do not have to be a current PDGA member to play, and the $10 non member fee will be waived for this event. This event has been coordinated to make it as accessible as possible to encourage more women to get out and play!!
Registration fees are $15 for amateurs, and $20 for pros. There will be player’s packs for amateurs, and the PDGA is hoping to gather enough sponsorship to provide something for the pros as well. Amateurs will be awarded prizes & pros will be playing for cash.

Also since we will be competing against women from all over the world we encourage everyone to follow the PDGA ratings to determine which division you should play in, and there will be no division size minimums. Since we are competing against womens from all over the world we may have lets say for example one Advanced Grand Master, but there will be other Adavanced Grand Masters at other events.
