COURSE:

Location: The course is located just outside of the city of Őriszentpéter, a small town very close to the triple slovenian-austrian-hungarian border. It is a 4 min car ride from the official accommodation.

Description: If you have already been to Őrség Open, then you know what to expect, the course will be the same as in previous years, maybe some smaller changes will be administered depending on how the farmlands look like. If you have not yet been to Őrség, then please expect an agricultural/forest landscape, in the heart of a national park, with tight wooded holes, long crushes, and some holes where finesse is required to score well.

Facilities: We will have tournament tents at the course to keep us safe from the sun and the rain (if any), and some benches where we can chill between, before and after rounds. Two refreshment and medical stations will help us stay hydrated and safe.

Map: The course map is almost the same as last year with some minor changes.

SCHEDULE:

August 2. Friday: Course is available to practice and for side events all-day.

August 3. Saturday: The weather at this time of the year can be very extreme, temperatures can be above 30-35 degrees celsius. As such, we will have a relatively early start on Saturday, then a longer lunch break (people can go back to the campsite, refresh themselves, eat, chill, etc.), and a relatively late start for the second round.

08:00 Player's meeting on the course by the tent at hole #1.
08:30 Start of Round 1
11:30 Lunch break
15:00 Start of Round 2

19:00 Dinner, chill, board games, card games, etc. at the campsite

August 4. Sunday: If you are staying at the campsite in a house, please make sure to pack all your things!

08:30 Start of Round 3

DIVISIONS:

The tournament will be played in the following divisions:

  • MPO - open to players of both genders
  • FPO - open to female players
  • GREEN - open to players of both genders with PDGA rating not higher than 850
  • PURPLE - open to players of both genders with PDGA rating not higher than 800
  • MJ18 - open to players of both genders with age younger than 18 on their birthday in 2024

Any player can enter the competition in a higher category, so all players can enter MPO, but players can only play in a lower category if their rating allows it, so someone with a rating of 801 cannot play PURPLE, and someone with a rating of 851 cannot play GREEN. Players who are not PDGA members and do not have a rating can play the PURPLE category only if they have not played PDGA tournaments so far, or they have played PDGA tournaments and the last 6 rounds are not worth more than 800 rating points on average.

In case the number of players in a given division does not reach at least 4, then the players registering to that division will automatically be moved to the closest matching one.

SCOREKEEPING:

We will use PDGA live digital scoring on the tournament, so please make sure to keep your mobile phones charged. The password for the tournament will be sent to all players through email shortly before the tournament. Just in case, we will also have paper score sheets (weak signal may be an issue).

FORMAT AND PAYOUT:

Rules: The tournament is a PDGA C-Tier event and all official rules and regulations, and all official tournament rules for this tier will apply.

Flights: The first round will be played in semi random groups in shotgun start. The second round will be played in groups by total scores (and in case of ties by lower PDGA number) in shotgun start. The third round will be played in groups by divisions and total scores (and in case of ties by lower second round scores, than by lower PDGA number, than by last name's alphabetical order) in shotgun start.

Prizes: No cash payout. Only prizes, merchandise, trophies, certificates and player packs (goulash). 20% of the total player fees will be allocated into the main event prize pool. The main event prize pool will be divided into division prize pools based on division sizes. Division prize pools will be distributed among the top 20% finishers in each division. The detailed main event prize payout for all divisions will be published 1 day before the event. In case of tie(s) for positions for main event prizes, sudden death playoff  on hole 1 and then CTP  on hole 1 will decide.
