In hosting EDGC 2014, Disc Golf Genève aims to provide Europe and all participants and guests with a unique and outstanding experience. Building on the technical and organizational successes of past events, and drawing on a wealth of local experience, EDGC 2014 in Geneva aims to be remembered as one of the best major tournaments ever staged in Switzerland. It is a further goal of TOC to use this event to continue to push forward the awareness of the disc golf sport in Geneva, Switzerland and Europe.
The EDGC 2014 is managed by a specially founded association (Association des Championnats d’Europe de Disc Golf 2014) whose majority of members are part of the local club, Disc Golf Geneva. This association is completed by members of other clubs and the Swiss Federation.
EDGC 2014 will be held from August 20 to August 23.
The Tournament will be played over four days (Wednesday to Saturday) with arrival, registration and formal issues Monday to Thursday, and a double competition on Sunday. The event will be played on one 18 holes course only with one round per day and a maximum capacity of 200 players. This format offers many advantages for the players, but also for the spectators and the media.
Disc Golf Genève (club founded in 2001) has been running Disc Golf events in Geneva since many years and continues to provide the best disc golf events in Switzerland including an Eurotour event since 2006 (A-tier since 2009).
For 10 years now, the club organizes annual events for all levels of play:
- tournaments for beginners
- a tournament for schools
- one event of the Swisstour (out of 6-8 yearly events)
- one event of the Eurotour, the Swiss Open (bringing together the best competitors of the continent.)
To provide the best possible organizational platform and security for EDGC 2014, a special Association has been founded:
Association des Championnats d’Europe de Disc Golf 2014
This association will be closed after the event end of 2014.
