Pro Forester was supposed to be one out of 7 tournaments of the highest European competition rank EuroTour but due to Covid19 EuroTour 2021 was cancelled so Pro Forester will be a stand alone Tier B event played on September 25 and 26.
The Lagoda Disc Golf team has organized over 60 international disc golf tournaments since 2012 with participation by more than 500 different players of 31 countries. We especially emphasize 8 editions of the Drava Forester tournament, the 2018 European Championship and winning a bid to host the WFDF’s World Team Disc Golf Championship which will be held in 2022 in Varaždin.
In addition to everything organized so far, we are especially honored and pleased to have the opportunity to organize one out of seven tournaments of the new elite disc golf tour of our continent and look forward to welcoming players from all over Europe (and hopefully from other continents) in Varaždin, the city where we live and work.
The city of Varaždin is the center of one of the 21 Croatian counties and a place with a rich history that today has a population of almost 50,000. In the middle of the 18th century, the city was the capital, i.e., the administrative center, of the then Croatia, for 21 years, and after the great fire in 1776 that burned most of the buildings, power was returned to Zagreb. Then the city was rebuilt in the Baroque and Roccoco style, so today it is the best preserved urban complex in continental Croatia, and the city center is a large pedestrian zone full of historic houses, buildings and palaces. For more information about the city, open a separate page.
The competitions will take place on a temporarily course set near Arena Varaždin - in the old park forest and on the embankment of the Drava river, which we are certain, will give players the pleasure of the disc golfing in a nice scenery, but also a challenge in solving problems that technically demanding holes will put in front of them. On most holes, a longer orange and shorter blue tee will be used, with only the MPO and MP40 categories playing orange tee, while all other divisions will play blue tee. For more information about the course open the separate page or download Course map or Tee signs in PDF from this page.
Registrations for the competition are done via the Disc golf scene page, and the categories open for registration are FPO (women), MPO (men), MP40 (men over 40), MP50 (men over 50) and MA1 (Amateurs).
The list of registered players can be found on the PDGA page of the tournament.
The official tournament program will begin on Friday, September 24th with Players meeting at 18:00 at the course. Tournament program will end on Sunday September 26th no later than 14:00.

If you arrive to the tournament with your own vehicle, you can easily get all the way to the course next to Arena Varaždin where there are a large number of free of charge parking spaces.
If you are coming to Varaždin by public transport, then you can use the Taxi service, and one-way transport in the city area will cost you 25-30 kn (3.5-4.5 €).
All players who come to the tournament by plane and want us to arrange a transfer can contact us to give them advice on choosing an airport and arrival and departure time in order to connect more people to the same transfer (e.g. transport by van or mini bus) for the transfer price per person would be as low as possible.
To players who come without their own vehicle, we will offer the option of transfer from the hotel to the course and back (8-10 minute car ride), and a Taxi service is always available to them at the previously mentioned prices.
