Spa Hills 2023

Spa Hills is a two-day tournament that will be played on July 22 and 23, 2023 in Toplice Sveti Martin, and offers all participants the opportunity to combine competition on the course where the 2018 European Championships was played with summer vacation at the Terme Sveti Martin resort. At the same time, this tournament is part of the Croatian Disc Golf League.

This will be the 9th edition of the tournament as Spa Hills has been played regularly every year since the first tournament in 2015. The last 8th edition of Spa Hills in 2022 was attended by 49 competitors who came from Austria, Estonia, Croatia, Hungary and Slovenia.

Spa Hills will be played as a two-day tournament consisting of three rounds on 18 holes plus finals for top players, and the course layout will be the same as in the earlier Spa Hills and Jingle Hills tournaments.

Concept of play
The competition will take place in the following format:
Round 1 - groups will be formed with mixed categories and strength groups determined according to 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 do not see regularly.
Round 2 and Round 3 - groups formed by results, without mixing categories

The 18-hole course is set up on the ball golf course and the surrounding forests, thus combining shorter, technical forest holes with open fairways.
Permanently installed baskets of local production are used on 9 holes (but in a different layout from the permanent course), with addition of 2-3 more baskets of local production while remaining baskets will be by Disc Golf Park.
The tee pads on all holes will be arranged with artificial grass turf.
There is a possibility that one hole (hole 2) may not be perfectly mowed because that part of the course is not owned by the resort, while all other holes should be in excellent condition.

You can download the course map in PDF format from this page.

This layout has been played in several tournaments so far, and the currently valid records are men's 50 (-8) played by Stanislaus Amann (rating 1018), and for women 62 (+4) played by Andreja Bernjak (rating 920) and Ana Gorički (rating 905).
The full list of the top 10 results in the men's and women's categories can be found in the PDF document on this page.

The official accommodation of the tournament is in the Hotel Terme, which has 151 modernly equipped hotel rooms and 6 luxurious suites surrounded by untouched nature, and in the Regina Apartment complex, which is an ideal choice for a family holiday, holidays with friends or going on holiday with a pet. Standard and family apartments are available in the Apartment complex, located 250 meters from the disc golf course.
You can download the price list in a PDF document from this page.

The apartments are equipped with the amenities that every home has, and the pleasant and warm interior is the reason why visitors feel at home.
Standard apartments consist of a living room and one bedroom. In the bedroom there is a double bed, while in the living room there is a sofa bed on which an additional person can sleep.
Family apartments consist of a living room, a bedroom with a double bed and a second bedroom with two separate beds. In the living room there is a sofa bed on which an additional person can sleep.

All players who book accommodation through Lagoda Disc Golf (contact us by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) are entitled to a reduced registration fee, i.e. a €3 discount on the registration fee for their category.
Also, all players who book accommodation through Lagoda have the option of leaving the apartment/room late on Sunday afternoon, unless this is not possible because new guests arrive in the same room/apartment that day. We will give everyone a late check-out confirmation on Saturday, the first day of the tournament.

Accommodation in an official hotel or apartments is not mandatory, so participants can book some other accommodation options themselves.

Tournament participants will be offered the option to pre-order lunch on Saturday, dinner on Saturday and lunch on Sunday. The exact list of dishes and prices will be available later.

If you come by car, you can park near the Golf House (google maps location). Keep in mind that there is a basket on hole 18 nearby and that there is a danger that players will hit the vehicles parked right next to the stairs to the Golf House.

There is a toilet within the Golf House. In addition, you can also use the toilet within the hotel (side entrance on the side of the forest).

All the photos we take at the tournament will be added to the Google Photos Album at the end of each day and you can download them and use them for social networks.

Ace Pool
All players who wish to do so can pay €1 in cash, which is placed in a special piggy bank. From past Lagoda tournaments in the Ace Pool bank on March 21st €83 is already there.
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. Ace pool will not transfer to Euro Tour Pro Forester. A player who wants to participate in the Ace pool must pay €1 before the start of the first round. If the player hits an ace and has not paid the ace pool before the start of the first round, he is not entitled to the prize.

CTP – Closest to the pin
On one track, we will organize an additional competition in who threw the disc closest to the basket, and it will take place during the game in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds. There will be a 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 shortest 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.

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

Prizes and Tournament respect raffle
At most of the tournaments we organize, trophies and smaller prizes are awarded to the best players in each category, while in addition to that, we reward all players who have earned it by respecting the rules of the tournament through a raffle.
At this tournament, we are awarding more valuable prizes for the best in each category, so the raffle at the end of the tournament will only have a few smaller prizes.

In order for a player to be able to claim a raffle prize, he/she must:
1. Be present at the players meeting (when we read your name at the beginning of the meeting you should be present)
2. Pay the registration fee for the tournament in advance or during the tournament (no later than the beginning of the Winners ceremony)
3. Play 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 Winners ceremony.

If a player is drawn in the raffle, but has not met all four criteria, he cannot claim the prize, so the next player will be drawn. The same player cannot win a raffle prize in two consecutive tournaments.
