2019 Zambia Open
Eagles Wings Disc Golf is thrilled to offer the first PDGA event in Zambia, Africa this upcoming January of 2019. The tournament will be a one day C-tier, with lunch provided for all competitors. All amateurs will receive at least a disc and a mini for their player pack and will be playing for a trophy. The professional divisions will play for cash. The course is currently in a 9 hole layout, but upon arrival in Zambia, our team will add another 9 holes to the course. The new 18 hole layout will add some lengthier holes to the mix and complete the original goal of an 18 hole course. The event has been approved by the PDGA, and although the baskets aren’t up to standard, they will be allowed for this tournament, so don’t be too surprised when spit-outs happen!
If you would like to play in this event, registration is currently open on Disc Golf Scene. Due to the location of the tournament, certain accommodations must be made. Upon arrival to Livingstone, you will make the 3.5 hour trip by bus/taxi to the rural community of Macha, where the tournament will be held. Macha, Zambia is a small rural + remote town with a hospital, primary and secondary schools, churches, a research facility, and a community full of hard working, kindhearted, and hospitable people.
Lodging will be in a dorm style set up and will house everyone who comes in for the disc golf trip as there are no local hotels. The dorms have both electricity and running water. The cost for lodging is $20 USD per night.
All meals will be prepared for you. It will be mostly American style food, but there will also be opportunities to enjoy local Zambian food as well. The cost for breakfast, lunch, and dinner is $18 USD per day for all three meals.
