Varazdin is located in the northern part of Croatia, and is distanced 81 kilometers from Zagreb. Players can arrive to the tournament by private or public transport. Varazdin has both bus and train connections with Zagreb but not very good connections to other cities, especially those in surrounding countries.
If you are arriving to the tournament by your own vehicle, you can easily drive all the way to the course by the Arena Varaždin, where is a large number of free parking spaces.
If you are arriving by public transport to Varaždin then once in the city you can use the Taxi service and you will pay around 25-30 kn (3.5-4.5 €) for the ride inside the city, or system of electric scooters (Bolt)
The best option is Zagreb airport as it is just 50 minute car ride and there are no risks for a longer delay as there is no heavy traffic on the route (highway) to Varaždin.
Other nearby airports that we could arrange transfer from are Maribor, Slovenia (1:00 hour by car to Varaždin), Graz, Austria (2:00), Ljubljana, Slovenia (2:30), Rijeka, Croatia (3:00), Budapest, Hungary (3:45), Vienna, Austria (3:45) but with those there is always a factor of traffic (it can be especially heavy when reaching Budapest airport) so your shuttle might last somewhat longer.
Airport shuttle prices will be determined for each airport separately, upon request, and we will try to group up several players in the same car / van / mini bus ride but we cannot guarantee that there will be players arriving at similar time to the same airport.
A shuttle by car from Zagreb costs around 70€ (equally divided among (up to 3) passengers) while car shuttle from Budapest / Vienna is around 200 € (equally divided among (up to 3) passengers). What we usually do is try and group people into van (up to 8 passengers) or mini bus (up to 18 passengers) shuttles and then the price can drop down to 30-40€ from Vienna / Budapest or 15€ from Zagreb for one way ride.
All players (arriving by their vehicle or by airplane) will have an option to book official accommodation – course shuttle option what is extra charged (approximately 20 €) for the event. The shuttle service will operate on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 1:15 hour before the first tee time, and running back and forth until the end of the competitions each day. It is expected that a shuttle will run from hotel to the course each 15 minutes, and return rides will be done on request.
If you will not book hotel shuttles then you can always use the Taxi service and you will pay around 25-30 kn (3.5-4.5 €) for a one way ride from the hotel to the course.
