Disc golf Christmas Spirit 2019

Bring your discs and join five-time PDGA World Champion Paige Pierce in Croatia for holidays filled with disc golf and the holiday spirit. You will stay for 7 nights in a 4* Spa Golfer hotel at a beautiful Spa & Sports resort of LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin, play one PDGA sanctioned event, attend a disc golf clinic with Paige, and visit four European capitals that are already fully lit up with thousands of lights in the Christmas spirit.
Usually, the weather at your destination is in early December still warm enough to have no snow. Even in the case of bad weather, the LifeClass Terme Sveti Martin resort offers large indoor pools and other amenities where your hosts will organize a lot of activities. Fun times will not be missed.

At the resort, we will set up challenging and fun temporary 18-hole par 60 course that combines open ball golf course fairways and tight forest holes. At this course, we will play 2-round tournament with one round per day, but you will have free time on all other days to play additional rounds.
After playing a tournament on the first weekend of the program, we will use next four days for full-day trips to Austrian capital Vienna and Hungarian capital Budapest (it’s up to 3:30 hour ride to reach both) and half-day trips to Slovenian capital Ljubljana and Croatian capital Zagreb (it’s up to 2 hour ride to reach both). At each of these cities, we will have several hours to wander around Christmas markets and see the most famous sights. Once we are all tired and sleepy, we will sit back on a bus for the ride back to the resort.
You can find a full daily plan for this experience below.

The program starts and ends on Friday, but for those who are arriving from distant locations and would want to make it a few more days, there is an option to extend the stay, play one more PDGA event and see one more Croatian city. Additional info on that can be found at the bottom of this page.
