The Beast Course Notes for the European Amateur Open 2024 (Nokia DiscGolfPark)

Wasps nest behind hole 13 tee! Relief area, marked with yellow-red band. Play as OB, but no penalty throws added. (For hole 12.)

  • Course TD: Juho Järvinen, +358 50 593 6603
  • Course address: Hinttalankatu 6, 37100 Nokia. (Nokia indoor ice rink / Nokian jäähalli)
  • Parking in the ice rink parking lot. There’s plenty of space.
  • There’s a kiosk, info desk and toilets in the ice rink building.
  • Starter’s station at the 1st tee. Remember to visit the info at the end of the round to verify your scores. Also, remember that you must check in at the starter’s station 5 minutes before your tee time for each round! (PDGA Competition Manual 1.04 B)
  • Keep in mind that you’re playing in a public course and that some of the holes are temporary. There are also other park users. Be patient, kind towards others, and never throw unless it is safe.
  • Only use marked crossings to cross the roads when transferring between holes.
  • If your disc ends up in a private yard, please don’t just walk in and grab it yourself. Wait until after your round before acquiring. (With owner’s permission.)
  • The primary OB line is the white paint on the ground, where available. If there’s no paint, eg. paint has worn off or OB is in the rough, use the OB poles. Primarily the OB poles are just a visual aid. See the hole maps for detailed OB instructions.
  • Water available next to the toilets.
  • Warming up on tournament days (July 12-14) in the field next to hole 16. Please don’t move the baskets and only throw in the guided direction. Watch out for players on hole 16 on your warm up drives – let them focus on playing.
  • Sudden death play-off holes (for MA1): 1, 10, 16, 17, 18. (Played in a loop if necessary.)
  • Lost & found (including discs) at the info. Note that we have not organized retrieval for lost discs from the ponds.
