From Friday June 4th until Sunday June 6th, Pro Forester will, as a 4th station of EuroTour 2021, bring together up to 140 players from up to 15 different nations.
All competitors will play three rounds (one per day) with tee times designated to their group and 5, 7 or 10 minute delay between groups (or possibly a bit longer delay before the start of the leading group).
In dependence to the number of registered players and expected length of play in a round it is possible that a 6-hole final round will be played by top 5 FPO and MPO players (as traditionally played at past Drava Forester events held annually in November), but a call on that will be made in March.
As this event is a part of top European disc golf competition the main focus is set on Pro divisions - FPO, FP40, MPO, MP40, MP50 and MP60, while players who wish to compete in Amateur divisions will be able to register only in Stage 4 and 5 of registrations and only if there are still spots available in the event.
The tournament will be held according to PDGA A-Tier standards and rules, and players must be PDGA members to be able to signup up for the event.
No consumption of alcohol is allowed for players starting at 30 minute to designated tee time, and until returning of the scorecard. No consumption of other illegal substances is allowed from the start of the event (Welcome dinner) until the end of the event (Winners ceremony).
Smoking is ONLY allowed with the consent of other players in the group, and we ask players to refrain from smoking when they are in the areas of the course where there are more spectators.
All players are expected to dress appropriately and to maintain a clean and well-groomed appearance before, during and after tournament rounds. All players must wear a shirt covering their upper chest area. A well-tailored shirt with a collar and sleeves covering the upper arm shall be considered acceptable. Tank tops are not allowed for any competitor, but women may wear sleeveless shirts with collars.
Ties for first place in any division will result in sudden death playoff starting from hole 1. Sudden death will be over, when one of the players has won a hole. TD will provide detailed information before play offs.
In case that 6-hole FPO and MPO finals are held ties for spots in the finals will be determined by sudden death playoff at holes played in the Finals, starting from hole 1. TD will provide detailed information before play offs.
Out of each Pro player's tournament fee 60€ is added to the payout while cash prizes will be paid out to top 33% players in each division. For the SpringForester 2020, EuroTour 2020 event canceled because of Covid19 pandemics, we have had 2.000 € added cash, and we hope to have that same or the same amount added to the ProForester 2021 event, but we cannot guarantee that right now as it will heavily depend on how Covid19 pandemics develops in in the upcoming months.
Out of each Am player's tournament fee 30€ is added to the prize pool and prizes will be awarded for top 33% best players in each division.
EuroTour 2021 consists of 7 tournaments that will be played in Denmark (Kokkedal, April 30 - May 2), Estonia (Alataguse, May 7-9), Austra (Feistritz ob Bleiburg, May 28-30), Croatia (Varaždin, June 4-6), Finland (Sipoo, July 1-3), Norway (Langevag, July 7-10) and again Estonia (Aegviidu, July 23-25).
For the tour final standings a player competing in MPO or FPO division, out of 7 events, 4 best results will be summed up, while to even be ranked, players needs to have at least 3 appearances. For other divisions 3 best scores count towards final standings while players needs to get at least two appearances to be included in the final standings.
At each EuroTour event 5€ per player is paid to the final tour standings payout that will be paid to top 10 MPO players, top 5 FPO players and top 3 players in all other divisions. In addition to cash prizes top 3 players in each division will win EuroTour medals.
