Dear Disc Golf Friends!

Welcome to Budapest, welcome to the Budapest Disc Golf Open! The tournament is the closing event of the 2018 Austro-Hungaro Tour season, the tour winners will also be crowned here. This is a PDGA tier-C event with no payouts, and as such the official rules of PDGA will be enforced.

Please find all the necessary information for the tournament on this site.

1) Registration procedure

In order to register to the tournament, please click on the Registration button in the upper right corner!

  • In line with AHT standards, we have no separate masters divisions, only open and ladies, and a junior division. There is no differentiation between AM and PRO either
  • Tournament is limited to 72 players
  • There are no different phases of registration, it is done on a first come-first served basis
  • 5 wildcards are preserved to be given in the discretion of the TD
  • registration closes on 2018 October 3, 20:00 Budapest time.

2) Starting fee, and payment of the fee

The tournament fee is 40 EUR or 12.000,- HUF (please read the note below). The tournament fee includes 1) a lunch on both saturday and sunday, 2) a contribution to the prizes and the organisational overheads, 3) a fee towards the Austrian Disc Golf federation.

Important note to payments/fees
In the recent 2-3 years we have had many issues with receiving the exact amount of fees on our bank account. As such, from this year on we are making a few changes:
1) It is no longer possible to pay the starting fee at the tournament, all fees must be paid in advance, per bank transfer, until the given deadline.
2) players failing to pay the fees from the deadline will be removed from the registration list, and will be notified at the same time.
3) the player fee is either 40EUR or 12.000,- HUF. If your bank can make sure that we receive exactly 12.000,- HUF after the transfer and after the deduction of all transaction fees on our side, then you need to transfer 12.000,- HUF (you need to specifically indicate that you are paying for the transaction fees of the receiving bank). Otherwise, the amount to be transferred is 40 EUR

3) The Schedule

Friday - Oct 5
The course will be set up for practice purposes around 12:00. It may be the case that we will not have all the baskets out, but in any case, the teepads, tee signs, OB lines will be marked, and in case of missing baskets, we will put out some sort of marking device for you to have an idea about the course. We will collect the baskets around 18:30, but it will likely be dark to play then anyways.

4) The Course, Directions

The tournament is played on a temporary course, one of the islands of Budapest. We are using artificial turf teepads.

This is the island where the very first golf disc was thrown in Budapest, and has been home to the Budapest disc golf community for years on. A large open area with endless possibilities to make holes, but for this tournament we have cherry picked the best ones. There will be small changes to the 2016 course layout, as we wanted to make sure we avoid pedestrins and dog walkers to the most possible extent.

You can park your car around the players' meeting point.

Click on this link to access a google map link for where the course is. The map also shows the way how to get on the island by car, which bridge to take.

Getting to the island is best done by car. An alternative to that is getting a taxi from town, it should cost you around HUF 4000 (~12-13 euros), tell this to the taxi driver "Hajógyári sziget - Szekércsárda".

5) Accomodation

As Budapest is a capital city, and there are endless possibilities to find accomodations, we do not really organise any central accomodation. On the other hand you can contact us and we can give you some recommendations on where to stay.

6) Food

Players will receive a lunch, the price of it is included in the tournament fees. The lunch will be served in a restaurant right next to the meeting point. There will be a vegatarian and a regular option available.
Food on saturday:
regular:roasted chicken legs with rice/peas, hungarian sour cabbage
vegetarian: vegetable lasagne

Food on sunday:
regular: pork stew with fried potatoes
vegetarian: penne pomodoro
