DGPT Announces European Silver Event Schedule & Points Update

December 21, 2023: The Disc Golf Pro Tour (DGPT) is pleased to release the names, locations, and dates of six new Silver events as a part of the recently announced DGPT European Tour

2024 DGPT Europe Silver Events

Name Date Location
Belgian Open May 3. – 5. Parc du Bourdon, Braine-l’Alleud, Belgium
Norway Open May 31. – June 2. Hestehagen, Tønsberg, Norway
Heinola Open June 7. – 9. Kippasuo, Heinola, Finland

Järva Open x Tyyni** August 2. – 4. Järva, Stockholm, Sweden
Baltic Disc Golf Championship* August 9. – 11. Alutaguse, Vasavere, Estonia

*The Baltic Disc Golf Championship will serve as the 2024 DGPT Europe finale and award double points for the DGPT Europe points series. 

** MPO & FPO will only play Järva

Altogether, the European swing will comprise twelve events (including a PDGA Pro Major – the European Open) taking place between May and August of 2024, with stops in Finland, Belgium, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, and Denmark. 

DGPT Europe Points Series Details

In addition to these schedule additions, the DGPT is pleased to announce the final points structure for the stand-alone 2024 DGPT Europe points series. 

As previously announced, the DGPT will maintain two points standings: a DGPT World Standings that awards spots in the 2024 DGPT Championship and a stand-alone DGPT Europe points standings. DGPT Europe will not have a separate Tour Championship in 2024 but will instead use its stand-alone points standings to award bonus payouts and 2025 Tour Cards to top finishers. 

The details of the DGPT Europe stand-alone points series are as follows. 

2024 DGPT Europe Points Series 

Event Class Points Weight Number of Events Counting Towards Points Series Total Points Available
Silver (PDGA A-tier) 50% → A win is worth 50 pts Best 4 out of 6* 250*
DGPT (Elite Series) 100% → A win is worth 100 pts Best 3 out of 5 300
PDGA Pro Major 200% → A win is worth 200 pts 1 of 1 (2024 European Open) 200

*While DGPT Europe will not have its own Tour Championship in 2024, it will recognize the Baltic Disc Golf Championship (the final 2024 Silver event of the European swing) as the DGPT Europe finale. Competitors will receive double points at this event. 

The DGPT will announce a complete 2024 DGPT World Standings points structure (separate from the European points series) in early 2024. 

DGPT Europe Tour Pass

While a full DGPT Europe tour card is not being implemented for 2024, the DGPT will make a tour pass available for European players wishing to compete at multiple European events. 

“The 2024 DGPT Europe tour pass is a lighter version of the standard DGPT Tour Card,” said Mikko Wikman, DGPT Europe’s Operations Manager. “Our focus is ensuring smooth registration for players wanting to play multiple events. The DGPT Europe tour pass will allow European competitors to easily register for all 2024 European DGPT Elite Series and Silver events in one place.” 

“Tour pass holders will also be able to participate in certain ongoing DGPT Europe development projects, submit feedback and talk with DGPT Europe staff, and receive prioritized positioning for press conferences, feature cards, and other media opportunities,” said Juha Kytö, DGPT Europe’s Media Director.” 

The DGPT will make the European tour pass available early in 2024. The following players are eligible for a pass and will receive invites from the DGPT Europe team.
