Where / Course
The tournament is being played on the temporary disc golf course set-up on the Hajógyári-sziget (Óbuda Island) in Budapest, Hungary.
The course is very flat (no elevations), very dry (no water hazards), it has some trees and some OB, so overall it should give a very entertaining disc golf experience. PAR is usually rated around 930-940.
Note to players who have already played this event: we have re-numbered the holes, previous #4 is now #1, previous #5 is now #2, etc.
Accessing the course
Generally you will drive to the course. Please note that parking is only allowed in designated areas, and it is forbidden everywhere else. Around the Tournament Center (Basket #18) there is a designated parking that can hold roughly 15-20 cars, but island visitors are also using it.
You can also take public transportation: the best option is to take the green regional tram H5 from "Batthyány-tér" metro stop (line M2), getting off at "Filatorigát" and then walk to the island (15min walk from the train stop).
Liabilities, island visitors
Please note that the Budapest Disc Golf Open course is a temporary one, the tournament is being played in a public park. There are park visitors, and while we are doing our best to keep them away from the fariways (information tables, fb posts, etc), we can not secure an uninterrupted playing experience for you. Plese be patient with park visitors, explain them that we have a permission from the city to run the event.
Please note that you are entereing this tournament under your own responsibility, you are lieble for your actions, the tournament organisers are not liable for the actions of players.

Food, Catering, Toilets, etc.
Generally speaking the tournament is a self-catering event, but to make this easier:
- On both days, you will be able to order a pizza, that will be delivered to the Tournament Center around 12:30. You will need to sign-up for this, and pay the exact price (please try at least) to one of the organisers
- We will have drinks (beverages, beer) for sale at the tournament center and water will be free of charge
- in lunch break you can walk to the kayak club "Honvéd" by Hole #1, where they have all sorts of warm and cold food
Unfortunately there are no public toilets on the island. One option is using the toilet of the "Honvéd" kayak club, and alternatively we are trying to organise a portable toilet that can be used by players.
