The first day is over here at the European Open and what an exciting first day it was! Best disc golfers in the world came to compete at The Beast and showcase quality disc golf in front of huge crowds.
Even though the tournament had just begun, the sides of the fairways were filled by avid disc golf fans. We are expecting the number of spectators to grow each day, reaching its peak during the final round on Sunday.
