The club has organized PDGA Majors both in 2008 and 2010 with huge success. We had one of the biggest galleries in disc golf history following the finals, with close to 1000 paying visitors, and a few hundred every qualifying day.
Looking forward to 2015, with the help from many local sponsors and Big sponsors like Latitude 64° and Polfärskt AB, it will be even better. The course will have some small changes since the last time, but nothing dramatic. A few holes have been redesigned and reconstructed to spice up the already difficult and challenging course. The holes will have an average distance of 159,4m (523ft.), but apart from being just long, good placement and smart play is the key if you want to master the course. In Skellefteå we don't believe in manufactured OB areas. We want the player to play from the position they have put themselvs in. Of course will we have OB's as well, 'cause we have water hazards, roads to protect etc. You're not going to lose this tournament on multiple penalty shots. Instead you will win the tournament on smart game play, solid fairway shots and the skills needed to recover from bad breaks.
This year the starting field is set to 160 players, divided in two divisions (MPO and FPO). Registration is based on rating and will start with the highest rated players and we will open up more spots for lower rated players on a monthly basis.
Again, welcome to one of the hottest tournaments of the 2015 season.
