The Course

 

It is beyond doubt, that the most famous attraction of the City of Szarvas is the Arboretum, the botanical garden located on the city border. The 80 hectare large, stunningly beautiful park is the home to myriads of plant species – and in 2020 the CEDGC. Players and registered non-players of the tournament will gain free admission to the park, meaning that beyond playing the tournament, they will also be able to visit the park, and check out the sights – definitely worth a visit.

The (yet temporary) course will be set-up in the northern part of the park, with a classical Front 9 – Back 9 division. The PAR63 championship course will feature 9 PAR3 holes and 9 PAR4 holes, and players will require both precision and power to score well on this tough, but beautiful course. While there are no elevation changes, there are tight gaps, tricky OB-s and challenging wooded shots. Expect PAR to be around 960-970 in rating points.

The course gave home to the Hungarian National Championships Final in 2019, and two honoured guests have paid their visit to us for this tournament. As the CEDGC 2020 layout will be almost the same as the 2019 tournament, the scores from 2019 can be a good gauge as to where you can expect to score.

Warning: throughout the whole tournament, the park will be open for other visitors. While we will have volunteers to guide traffic, we will inform the visitors about the tournament, and there will be a lot of signs placed throughout the park, it could still come to encounters with visitors.

Arboretum Rules

Players and non-players are required to keep the Arboretum rules at all times.

  • Absolutely no littering in the park (TD may disqualify players violating this policy).
  • Cars may enter only with permission.
  • Smoking only in designated places around the tournament center.
  • Do not deliberately destroy plants (hitting trees, bushes, etc. with discs is okay), and do not play with the animals.
  • Respect the beauty of the place, and the extreme amount of work put into the design of the park.

Tournament center

Tournament center will be located roughly 150-200m from the park entrance, a 5min walk from Hole 1. This will be the administrative center of the tournament, with a lobby for players to hang out, lunch will be served here, there will be a Pro Shop here, you can leave your bags here, lost and found office will be here, etc. etc.
