Pro Forester will be held as one of the 9 tournaments of the elite European competition EuroTour, from 4 to 6 March 2022.
As an introduction to the tournament, the plan is to organize a training camp Euro Tour Warm Up which would take place from February 25th to March 3rd and during which players could train, share experiences and, in collaboration with More Disc Golf video production, record their own videos to use for social networks etc. ( read more )
The Lagoda Disc Golf team has organized over 70 international disc golf tournaments since 2012 with participation by more than 500 different players of 31 countries. We especially emphasize 9 editions of the Drava Forester tournament, the 2018 European Championships, 1st WFDF European Team Disc Golf Championships and winning a bid to host the WFDF’s 4th 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 nine 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.

The competitions will take place on a temporarily course arranged on the areas surrounding sports hall 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 divisions playing orange tee, while all other divisions will play blue tee. ( read more )
Registrations for the competition are done via the Disc golf scene page, and the categories open for registration are FPO, MPO, FP40, MP40, MP50 and MP60. Registrations will open on January 3rd 2022. ( read more )

The official tournament program will begin on Thursday, March 3rd with Players meeting at 18:00 while the rest will heavily depend on the current regulations on Covid19 pandemics. Tournament program will conclude on Sunday March 6th with the Winners ceremony no later than 18:00. ( read more )
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 for advice on choosing an airport, 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 official accommodation to the course and back (8-10 minute car ride), and a Taxi service is always available to them at the previously mentioned prices. ( read more )
The official accommodation of the tournament will be published in January 2022.
