Stray Disc Tour is an event that combines disc golf, relaxing by the pools and exploring Croatian nature, culture and gastronomy what makes it a perfect holiday for disc golfers, their families and friends. It lasts for nine days, and consists of three PDGA Tier C events played on three different style courses.
The central location for the event is Spa&golf resort Terme Sveti Martin where all players are staying in 4* hotel or 3* apartments.
Following a great response from participants of the first 2-day Spa Hills tournament held in 2015, we have decided to take things to a new level and offer players the opportunity to enjoy disc golf holidays with their friends and families - that's how the Stray Disc Tour came about.
Sixteen competitors played all three stations of the 1st tour in 2016 from Croatia, Austria, Finland, Sweden and Hungary; while an overall of 43 players played at least one round.
Players from the first tour spread the word about their amazing experiences, and as a result, the 2nd Tour saw a growth in the number of players. All locations of the Tour were played by 33 contestants from Austria, Croatia, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Norway, Hungary and Slovenia, while 51 players played at least one round.
The third edition was held in 2018 from June 30 to July 8, but this time with a bit less players due to the fact that European Disc Golf Championships were to be held at the same place just a month later and that many players were arriving for that bigger event.
The fourth edition of the tour has seen new growth of competitors and a retour to the course in Varaždinske Toplice where Jupiter's Shade was played again.
In 2020 the tour will be played from July 11 until July 19 with main changes being that we will offer accommodation for players in Varaždin for the duration of first two events (for those who would prefer to stay in a city that offers additional activities and night life) and the fact that the final event of the tour, Spa Hills, will be play as a 3-day event (Friday - Sunday) with a single round per day.
There are 84 spots available for each round of the event, meaning that the rounds will be played by no more than 21 groups of 4 players.
A tournament fee is charged for each of the events and it includes two meals:
Heat of Forester (210 kn / 30€)
Jupiter's Shade (160 kn / ~21 €)
Spa Hills (210 kn / ~30€).
Stray Disc Tour events are played in two am/pro categories - Open Men and Open Women. As it is common in the region there is no payout (to keep entry fee minimal and grow the sport) and age-based divisions are not offered. Although, a Junior division will be available in the case where 2 or more players sign up.
