As some of you may know, many of us here at Discmania are also heavily involved in organizing the European Open disc golf tournament. 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.
The European Open Experience
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. You can find more information about the European Open Experience from this article at the European Open website. We here at Discmania being an integral part of the tournament itself, we can assure you that this is an experience you do not want to miss.
We wish to see many of you at Nokia this July. This will be a Disc Golf event of the highest level and we cordially invite everyone reading this blog to take part in the experience. No matter whether your a Pro level player or just interested in in the sport as a spectator, this event has a lot to offer.
