The stage of the European Open is the legendary Beast, which is an extensively modified layout of the Nokia DiscGolfPark. Located at the center of Nokia, the course offers great facilities for a professional disc golf tournament. The Beast is a diverse course, designed to challenge even the top pros on all aspects of disc golf. The beautiful area has been the stage of previous world class tournaments. It has hosted seven European Open events since 2011, European Championships 2005 and Finnish Championships 2012. The course has been slightly modified throughout the years but it has maintained its unique feel and hasn't lost its bite.
The whole course is praised by many disc golfers as one the best and most challenging courses in the world. The first half, set in the beautiful Nokia Arboretum, is more wooded. The back-9 reveals another aspect of the Beast with water hazards and tightening OBs.
2023 edition of The Beast will be published closer to the event.
