The tier determines the payout for the most part... A-Tier requires 110% payout meaning you have to find sponsors for added cash. B-Tier requires 100% payout and $500 added cash. C-Tier is where you can keep money back for the club or course because it only requires 85% payout. (these are all off the top of my head)

But yes, I think sanctioned events will attract more players because these standards are known. I also the the alcohol rule is B-Tier and above if I remember by TD test correctly. And if not, nobody is gonna complain much at a C-Tier event. It's a much more casual feel in my opinion.

I'm pretty sure its safe to say that you cant drink or do drugs during play at any PDGA sanctioned event.
A-Tier is 110% payout but you also need $1800(?) minimum added cash just for the Pro side. $500 minimum for Pros for B-Tier and no required added cash for C-Tier. I see alot of events use players packs for the Pros to get to those payout/value levels.
There's also standards on players pack values, and mileage allowed between sanctioned events.

The alcohol rule is in force at C-tiers too. The TD has the discretion though as such events to issue a warning for first offense violators. Repeat offenders get auto DQ'ed.

Sanctioning keeps the drinking and drug use under control
this is important for courses in public parks and
I think this and the insurance are the benefits
I'm not a fan of the cost, payout structures, divisions etc of the pdga
however keeping Bob Marley away from a public park is one benefit of sanctioned events

LOL If it's never seen and the player doesn't act stupid or obnoxious, it never has to become an issue in the first place.
