The locals in Turku are busy with work while they prepare the course for The Preliminary. The course will be improved and modified for the PDGA A-tier tournament. The 18-hole tournament layout relies on the permanent 24-hole layout of the Lauste disc golf park course. Though the tournament layout, Kyy, will be even more challenging.
The course presents diverse challenges. There are tight tunnels among the woods, nearly wide open fairways where you can really rip it, and differences in elevation. Many holes combine all of those features.
KYY in numbers:
Total length: 2434 m / 7986′
Average hole length: 135 m / 443′

Players lists updated
The players lists of both tournaments, the European Open and The Preliminary, were updated today. A few players got a spot in the European Open due to cancellations. The waiting list keeps getting shorter week-by-week at a moderate rate. That should be good news for the players who are waiting for their spot in the tournament!
