Just about anyone who arrives here is going to have their sights set on the tournaments, whether on Franz Ferdinand or Konopiště Meadows. What you might not know, however, is that we’ve also prepared some fun side events at EDGC, too! If you want to know the history of disc golf in Konopiště, head to Masaryk Square in Benešov between now and 12/8 to visit the “Czech Footprint in Europe and Konopiště in the World” exhibition. On Friday 13/8, there will be an evening exhibition of other disc sports (freestyle and ultimate) next to the tournament centre. On Saturday 14/8, a famous Czech YouTuber will be playing a special tournament in the morning. The skill competition at the beginning will be followed by a short course tournament around the tournament centre. Once you’re at the tournament centre, why not also take part in the Emil Foundation’s For Arny Tokyo charity event—it will be going on all week. We, the organizers, will also contribute a certain amount for each tournament birdie and eagle to support this talented Paralympic swimmer. You can find the whole story of Arnošt Petráček and donate to his amazing efforts here: https://emilnadace.cz/pro-arnyho-tokyo. There will also be a fan zone around the tournament centre where you can rent discs, get quick lessons on how to throw and even measure your throws with a radar gun!
We strongly urge all spectators to follow basic hygiene measures. Keep your distance, wear a face covering when in large groups, and wash your hands often. In your own interest, test yourself if you are not fully vaccinated. Spectators will not be allowed in “PLAYER ONLY” areas and around the holes during the tournament. The areas for spectators will be clearly marked. This is for your safety as well as that of the players. Do NOT approach players to ask them for signatures. NO EXCEPTIONS! Organizing an event of this magnitude with such a large number of people is not easy, so please respect all the instructions from the organizers. Thank you for your understanding and for helping us keep everyone at this event safe.
If you’d like to try the courses yourself, we’ve got good news! For a fee of 100 CZK, you can play the same courses as the pros from any day between Wednesday and Saturday, starting at 7 pm. This may be the very last chance to play these courses in Konopiště, so don’t miss your opportunity!
