Frosty Hills 2024

The Frosty Hills tournament will be played on Saturday, January 20th 2024 in Toplice Sveti Martin, in a format of two 14-hole rounds.

The tournament is played at the Spa Hills Disc Golf Course which is a part of the LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin resort, so after the competition players can plan to go and relax at the indoor swimming pools or the spa area.
Winter tournaments in Toplice Sveti Martin named Frosty Hills have been played since 2017. Through the first three years (2017, 2018 and 2019), three one-day tournaments were connected in the Frosty Hills Series. After that, in 2020, only a single one-day tournament was played, and a year later it was not played due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Frosty Hills has been playing again regularly since 2022. On the last, sixth edition in the 2023, 47 players from Croatia, Hungary, Austria and Slovenia joined the event.

The event will be played in the following divisions:
• MPO (open to male and female players)
• FPO (open female)
• Red (players of both genders PDGA rated up to 900)
• Green (players of both genders PDGA rated up to 850)
• Purple (players of both genders PDGA rated up to 800).

The number of participants is limited to 56, that is, the competition will be played in a maximum of 14 groups of 4 players.
The registration fee for the MPO, FPO, Red and Green division is €17, and the registration fee for the Purple division is €10.

Players who are not PDGA members and do not have personal rating can play the Purple division only if they have not played PDGA tournaments so far, or have played PDGA tournaments and the last 6 rounds (or less if they have not played 6 rounds) are not worth more than 800 rating points on average. If those rounds are worth more than 800 then they can play the Green, Red or MPO / FPO division. A player who has no rating and the last 6 rounds (or less if 6 rounds have not been played) is worth more than 850 rating points cannot play the Green division but can play Red or MPO / FPO.

The registration fee includes the organization of the tournament, a fee to the Croatian Flying Disc Federation, a small trophy and small prize for the winner in each division, small prizes for players ranked 2nd and 3rd in the MPO and FPO divisions, Overachiever prize, CTP prize and raffle prizes.
In the Red, Green and Purple categories, only the winner receives a trophy and a small prize.

Communication with participants
All registered participants will be contacted via e-mail no later than 5 days before the tournament with basic information and news related to the upcoming competition.
For communication during the event, a WhatsApp group will be created in which all news will be published throughout the duration of the tournament, and through it the participants themselves can communicate with each other (and, for example, arrange to meet up for a practice, going out for a dinner or similar)

Tournament center
On the ground floor of the Golf House (by tee 1 / basket 14) a Tournament center will be set up where Players meeting, gathering of players before and after rounds and the Winners ceremony are held.
In the tournament center, participants can buy cold and hot drinks (beer, radler, energy drink, juice, water, tea, coffee) and sweet snacks (eg snickers).
There is a toilet in the tournament center that can be used by competitors. Due to the technical issues with one toilet, only one toilet was in operation at the last tournaments, and used equally by male and female players. Additional toilets are located in the lobby of the Terme hotel (250m from the golf course).

During the break between the 1st and 2nd round, a lunch will be organized for the players who want to preorder it. The price of lunch is €11, and it is served in the Quelle restaurant at the entrance to the swimming pools (former restaurant Vučkovec).
Lunch includes soup, two main courses and two side dishes (served on ovals on the table), salad and dessert.
All registered players will be contacted by e-mail about ordering lunch.

Concept of Play
The competition will take place in the following format:
Round 1 - groups will be formed with mixed categories and according to strength groups determined by the PDGA rating. We will try not to put players from the same clubs/countries in the same groups in the first round, so that through the game they can socialize with players they don't see regularly.
Round 2 - groups formed by result, without mixing categories.

The 14-hole layout is set up exclusevly for the tournament on the Sveti Martin ball golf course and the surrounding forests. You can download the Course map on this page in PDF format.
Disc Golf Park target model 2023 baskets are used for the game. All holes will have C1 (10m) and bullseye (3m) marked.
Teepads on all holes will artificial grass / turf carpet.

This layout was played only twice (Frosty Hills 2022 and 2023) and current course record is 43 (-3, rated 993) what was played by Tomislav Goricki at the 2023 event. Female course record is 53 (+7, rated 876 and 877) what was played twice at the 2023 event by Ana Goricki

Participants can use the parking lot at the Golf House (by the basket 14), but please note that there is a danger that your car will be hit by a disc in that part of the course (when playing on hole 1 or 14). (Google maps location)

If you want to avoid the risk of getting your car hit by a disc, park in the large parking lot near the Terme Hotel. Parking is free of charge. (Google maps location)

Ace Pool game
All players who wish to do so can pay €1 in cash, which is placed in a special piggy bank.
The player who hits an ace in the tournament becomes the winner of the entire prize fund of the Ace pool. If two or more players hit an ace in the same tournament, they share the ace pool. If no player hits an ace, the ace pool is carried over to the next Lagoda tournament, and so on until the ace pool is paid out in one tournament.
A player who wants to participate in the Ace pool must pay €1 before the start of the first round. If a player hits an ace and has not paid in the ace pool before the start of the first round, then he is not entitled to the prize.

CTP Game – Closest to the pin
On hole 5 (hazard in front of the basket) there will be an additional competition in "who threw the disc closest to the basket" during the play in the 1st and 2nd round. There will be a tape meter next to the basket post, and the player whose disc comes to rest near the basket can measure the distance from the post to the disc. The player whose disc has the smallest distance from the basket after the completion of the second round of the competition wins the prize.
For the result to be valid, the disc must be 5m or less from the basket, and you should send a photo from the distance shown on the meter to the official tournament WhatsApp group and indicate the distance in centimeters to the basket.

Overachiever Award
The award is given to the player who played the tournament on average the most above his rating (according to the current ratings on the PDGA website). All tournament participants who have a PDGA number and an active membership participate in this competition, but they need to have at least 20 rated rounds included in their rating.

Prizes and Tournament respect raffle
At the tournaments we organize, smaller prizes are awarded to the best three players in the MPO, FPO and to winners in Red, Green and Purple division, while we additionally reward all players through a raffle. The raffle is held at the end of the tournament, after the Winners ceremony. The usual top raffle prize is a disc golf backpack.

In order for a player to win a raffle prize, he must:
1. Be present at the Players meeting
2. Pay the registration fee in advance or during the tournament (no later than the beginning of the Winners ceremony)
3. Complete all rounds of the tournament
4. Register on time (mandatory check-in) if this is stated in the tournament schedule
5. To be present at the Winner ceremony

If a player is drawn in the raffle, but has not met all five criteria, he cannot claim the prize, so the next player is drawn instead.

The same player cannot win a raffle prize in two consecutive tournaments.
In the Frosty Hills 2024 tournament, the prize cannot be won by players who won it at the Merry Forester 2023 tournament.
