NBDG Fuengirola Open 2019

Welcome to The Biggest Disc Golf Event in Spain!

Hosted for the fourth time and being the biggest event in Spain, NBDG Fuengirola Open is back for 2019 and is also part of The Perfect Flight Tour!

On November of 2019 Monkeys are coming to Mijas and welcoming you to join for warm and casual PDGA rounds.

 

About the event

The story of NBDG Fuengirola Open goes back to February 2017 when NBDG members visited DGP Mijas for the first time and hosted a first official PDGA event in the course. The event was named “Monkeys in Mijas” and there was a massive crowd of 15 players in the event.

End of 2017, Monkeys returned and hosted another event, Monkeys in Mijas vol 2. This time event had grown a bit and there were 66 players.

At October of 2018, the event returned and was hosted for the 3rd time. The name was changed to NBDG Fuengirola Open, to tell people more where the event is located in. This time it was a huge success and there were 108 players from all around the world. That also made the event the biggest one ever played in Spain.

When and what?

The event is played from 31st of October to 2nd of November and holds 3 rounds for every player with tee times. All major Pro and Amateur divisions are offered.
Every player will play 3 rounds, no matter what their score or division is. Each day you will play 1 round.

NOTICE! Plan your stay at the minimum of 30th October to 3th of November to enjoy the event at the fullest! Do not travel back home 2nd of November as you might need to cancel your round and will miss the player's dinner.
