This year marks the 5th time the European Open will be organized and the city of Nokia in Southern Finland will once again serve as the hosting city. Widely considered to be the most prestigious disc golf event of the old continent, the European Open was the first PDGA Major event in Europe and continues to be the longest running Major in the European Disc Golf scene.

This year European Open Experience consists of 3 different events, all taking place within a 10-day period in July. These events are The European Open Preliminary, Disc Golf President’s Cup and The European Open itself. Between the 3 events there’s 50,000 USD cash prizes to be dealt out to those who drop the best scores in these events.
