Dross&Schaffer Schäffler Tanz International Open 2021
From August 17, the second edition of the Dross&Schaffer Schäffler Tanz International Open will take place at Golf Club Valley.
One and a quarter years after its premiere, the top-class amateur tournament returns to its origins.
Over 100 top amateurs from all over the world will compete against each other for three days in a 54 hole stroke play.
Europeantour players Alexander Knappe and Pia Babnik were able to win last year's Schäfflertanz Open with aplomb, securing the trophy.
"The Dross&Schaffer Schäffler Tanz International Open retains its basic sporting character and with it the spirit of optimism in pandemic times. We are very pleased that spectators are allowed for the event this year," said Danny Wilde, head coach of the Munich Valley Golf Club.
Originally, the Schäfflertanz was created in Munich in 1517 with the intention of getting people back on the streets after a plague epidemic. In keeping with that call, the Dross&Schaffer Schäffler Tanz Open is also intended to bring people together to watch top-level sports and dance with golf clubs, albeit still under restrictions.
54 holes in three days with a preceding practice round represents an intensive tournament experience and at the same time ensures a reasonable standard for the participants. After all, top international athletes are taking part.
If you are interested as a spectator, it is possible to register in advance at the club secretary's office.
"We are highly motivated to organize this tournament for the second time in Valley. Valley offers a unique combination of a top-class course and enough space for athletes, entourage and friends of golf or those who want to become one.", Danny Wilde
