Running it Back in Sweden – How To Watch the PDGA Euro Tour’s Skellefteå Open

Disc Golf Network Broadcasting All Three Rounds LIVE!

Disc Golf Euro Tour tournament

Ahead of the Skellefteå Open, we got a chance to connect with PDGA Europe Media and Marketing Manager Calixto García who is on-site at the 5th PDGA Euro Tour stop of the season. Calixto gave us a report on how things are looking headed into this weekend’s competition

Practicing From Sun up to… Sun Up? 

There are people playing on the course at 23:00. We come back at 06:00, and there are people playing in the course.. How is it possible? First, it’s training day at a PDGA Euro Tour event, and people from all over the world are trying to improve their performance. Second, we’re in the north. Very much north! As much as 64 Latiitude North- sounds familiar? And we enjoy 21 hours of sunlight per day to play disc golf! 

A basket installed near the airport baggage claim belt gives us the first hint: we’re in Disc Golf territory! Disc Golf Terminalen in Skellefteå – that circle over the “a” is called “ring” and locals pronounce it like a very soft “o”: a training area, a clubhouse, a pro shop… and for this event they have designed a custom 18 holes layout taking the best ones of them.

Players keep arriving, and course looks great! Let’s make some final adjustments while the sun sets… (almost).

Here’s everything you need to know to catch the action this weekend:
