I love discgolf, and i would hate to see another great place been taken down by some other sport or anyone else. This game is for everyone! Let it be the great discgolf course that it already is!!!

The Tampere Disc Golf Centre is of major importance to the exploding sport and recreational pasttime that is disc golf. Removing it will potentially also reduce significant opportunities for the Tampere area including hosting of World Championship events.

Brian Hoeniger (Toronto, )

I love the course

Mattis Toverud (Trondheim, )

Down with the oppressors

Politics should stay Outlook of sport, especially when they only do it for the benefit of money and petty votes in the next election.

Tony Nyberg (Anderstorp, )

Huippu mesta!

Lauri Lehtinen (Jyväskylä, )

TDGC is way better than any shitty golf course you’ll put over it.

Jonathan Munn (Richmond, )

Frisbeegolf keskusten säilyvyys ja lajiin panostaminen kaupunkien ja kuntien puolelta, on lajin säilyvyyden ja huiman kasvun kannalta ensiarvoisen tärkeää.

Discgolf

Arnar Prøis (Trondheim, )

One of the best discgolf courses in this country. Should not be changed to golf course because a few people lob golf course.

Masi Virta (Jyväskylä, )

#5314

Love for disc golf

Brayden Yates (Kingsport, )

#5338

Discgolf should have its own place and not be replaced by normal golf or have to share a course with normal golf. The sport is different and requires different layouts.

Maximilian Wöllner (Sola, )

#5348

Im signing because ”Centteri” is an amazing course to play and very fun. The only disc golf store in tampere is next to the course. There is already a golf course RIGHT NEXT TO the disc disc golf course. It’s important that we preserve disc golf courses like Centteri so that disc golf can grow as a sport in Finland.

Nils Alfthan (Tampere, )

#5354

I’m signing because Disc Golf has significantly gained popular since 2020. It would be a terrible idea to have a golf course. Tampere will not generate more revenue providing a golf course over disc golf.

Caleb Bruce (Pawhuska, )

#5358

Maybe the fastest growing sport in the nordics atm. Would be crazy to remove a course instead of using to attract tourists!

Tommy Wirtanen (Mariehamn , )

#5364

I think it’s outrages that some people want to destroy one of the best discgolfcourses in europe to build another golf course. Discgolf need these courses to set a standard for what a great discgolf course should look like.

Victor Folcke (Norrköping , )

Tomi Hakala (Tampere, )

#5458

I’m signing here because disc golf is the fastest growing sport in the world and it would be a shame to lose one the premiere venues that showcases this sport to the world.

Jonathan Blome (Pekin, )

#5460

I'm signing because this disc golf center is one of the most highly appreciated disc golf centers in Finland and also in the whole of Europe. Disc golf is a very rapidly growing sport that is especially popular among the youth. Keeping this course at play would also be beneficial for both the disc golfers and the regular golfers since it will introduce and advertise both sports to each others.

Tuukka Sauramäki (Lahti, )

#5508

This is a beautiful course and a really good event for the sport of Disc golf.

Philip Røyland (Oslo, )

#5512

Europe really needs an arena that can host Disc Golf Pro Worlds and the Tampere Disc Golf Center is just that arena.
Don’t be stupid.. build the Golf course somewhere else.

Gustav Germann (Sävar, )

#5522

Disc golf is an important activity for communities to be involved in!

Ryan Vester (Gretna, )

#5527

This course looks awesome and should stay to grow the sport

Timo Serafin (Hüttenberg, )

#5532

I’m signing because I believe disc golf is the next big thing in sports. It is growing unbelievably fast over the past few years and no matter where you are, I believe you should be able to learn and grow in the sport.

Gabriel Desrosiers (Putnam, )

#5611

I'm signing because the success of this course and the sport in general deserve respect! It would be a shame to remove a part of the local community that delivers so much joy to it's neighbors and visitors.

Alex Abel (Philadelphia, )

#5613

Please understand this unique part of land within the disc golf community. Tampere DGC is known for being one of the most challenging courses in the world, even putting the very top elite players in the world to test. In a sport mostly dominated by Americans, Finnish disc golf stands proudly as European representation within the disc golf Community. And Tampere DGC should be held as an important factor to that notion - making a statement of what it takes to come and compete on this side of the sea. Finnish people are known for their courage, and this course is definitely putting players’ courage to the test.

I plead that you come to a solution where Tampere DGC can remain. It is a course to be proud of, and contributing to Finnish publicity and tourism. Cherish this icon - let Tampere DGC stay strong, and us fellow Europeans proud.

Kind regards from Sweden,
Petter

Petter Johansson (Uppsala, )

#5616

Disc golf is a growing sport and as one of the most visited courses in the area, giving the course away to a golf course that already exists would be detrimental to the growth of disc golf. Why don't you tear down one of the many apartment complexes?

Weston Feldman (Athens, )

#5626

To preserve a great property.

Ian Wilson (Chapel Hill, )

#5628

It would be a damn shame if Tampere would be converted to a golf course when it is a world reknown discgolf course!

Marcus Wiemann (Skövde, )

#5637

Disc Golf is awesome and I'm so excited to see it grow around the world. Having a World Championship in Finland could go a long way in growing the sport, which seems much more important than just another ball golf course.

Ben Panfil (Peoria, )

#5638

I'm signing because it is important we disc golfers have courses to play on. We are still a growing sport as where typical golf has already had its time in the spotlight. As a growing sport we who throw disc's need to be pushing for our future, you may say "oh well it's just one course" but in reality that course could mean something absolutely special to not just one but many in the community.

Nathaniel Reyes (Tucson, )

#5641

Disc golf is growing more than ball golf

Caleb Spoo (Shawnee, )

#5646

The Tampere Disc Golf Center is one of the most loved Disc Golf courses on the planet. It is a destination Disc Golf course that people from all over the world want to travel to to play. I live in Utah in the USA and I want to travel to Tampere to play this beautiful course! To this point, I've only seen it on video, and I want it to be there for generations to come.

#5689

Disc golf has helped my build a community in my local area. I’ve made friends and now have reasons to get outside. Additionally, disc golf is a great way to utilize the natural landscaping for a recreational sport that draws plenty of people. Unlike golf, disc golf has minimal barriers to entry so families and lower income groups are also able to enjoy the sport.

Devon Maslyn (Ventura, )

Will McKeown (San jose , )

#5787

I've played this course, and it's a great experience. Thousands of hours have gone into making it a special place to play disc golf and one that could attract many international visitors to Tampere. Eliminating it would be not only be a shame, but a short-sighted mistake for the city of Tampere.

Isaac Massie (Willow wood , )

#6340

It’s an outrage that politicians refuse to see the diversity of this sport. Look what happened to Järva in Stockholm. The community’s access to a wonderful recreational space was run over by the politicians decision to create a cemetery. Disc golf is by far a more suitable sport for people of all ages and economical status than ball golf. Don’t let money talk but listen to what your community needs.

Alexander Masalin (Bälinge, )

Disc Golf is bigger than it has ever been in the professional and recreational leagues. And there is nothing but room for more growth as the pandemic has ended and thousands of new players join this amazing sport daily to be outside enjoying it with their friends and families.

I’ve been playing for about a year now and I love disc golf. Never gave it a chance, but when I did I fell in love. And so have hundreds of thousands of other people. This sport is growing a ton, and this course will be a destination for many frolfers and is the future of European disc golf. Players love the course so it must stay. I’d hate to see it replaced by a ball golf course, when there are already tons of beautiful ones all over the world. When the Tampere disc golf course is one of a select few in Europe.

Disc golf is a great, low cost way for individuals to get outdoors and enjoy themselves. I personally have experienced the benefits of disc golf following multiple hip surgeries and other operations. It allows me to be active and compete at different levels of competition. If you remove this disc golf course you are taking away from the local community and the potential future prospects that could come from that region. Although I am not from the area I believe strongly in supporting this cause and know that if you remove this course you will be doing a disservice to the community.

Evan Brewer (Stockbridge, )

Tampere Disc Golf Center is one of the nicest places out there for people to practice the sport of disc golf. To have an elite level course like that where international tournaments are being held, is worth much more than making it into another basic golf course.

Daan Hiemstra (Amsterdam, )

Justin Brinkman (New Philadelphia , )

#8065

Disc golf is a growing sport, and this course is a vital component of that growth as future location of the European Open. Standard ball golf courses are historically extremely destructive to local ecosystems, a draw back that does not exist in the majority of disc golf courses. For politicians to interfere would be a travesty.

Emil Strömberg (Espoo, )

#8254

Disc golf is an emerging sport with a bright future. It is growing at a faster rate than golf, and the Tampere DGC is poised to become a premiere destination for international disc golfers. It already serves a large local population and is an integral part of the Prodigy Disc Pro Tour. Furthermore, disc golf courses are more compatible with nature and more environmentally friendly than golf courses. Finally, the course itself is still relatively new. It seems hasty to scrap such a large project without giving it more time to prove its worth. I urge local government officials to preserve the Tampere Disc Golf Center in order to give the venture a real opportunity to flourish following COVID.

Patrick Aubyrn (Oak Park, IL, )

Jonathan Thomforde (Crystal, )

#8286

Signing because this would be terrible for the city of Tampere. Not only because it would take away the cities main disc golf course, but also because it will mean that there will never be a WORLD title event in your city. 10000 rounds played a week. At least 5000 people will have to travel elsewhere to play and shop. I know I always fuel up at a gas station and grab some snacks and water wherever I am playing. Businesses will suffer nearby.

Attila Gaal (Szeged, )

#8701

The idea of closing a world class course like this where thousands of people play every month so that another golf course can expand a bit makes no sense. This is one of the premier courses in Europe, I’m pretty sure this wouldn’t be a discussion if it was one of the top golf courses and someone wanted to expand into it. Don’t do to this course what you wouldn’t do to a ball golf course.

Phoenix Delaney (Louisville , )

#8703

I'm signing because an institution such as the Tampere Disc Golf Center should not be transformed into a ball golf course. Considering the growing popularity of disc golf as a sport, I would consider it in the communities best interest to maintain the disc golf center as a disc golf center.

Tampere is currently a premier disc golf destination--folks in the states such as myself are hoping to do Finnish disc golf trips once it is safe to travel again, and Tampere is at the top of our lists. Courses here in the states are trying to emulate what you've already created--it would be a horrible shame to see such a groundbreaking facility no longer be available.

Dan Frost (Standish, Maine, )

#9004

Disc golf is so important to the community to get people active and outside. It’s an easy sport to get into and do something as a family or use it as exercise. I used disc golf over a three year period to lose almost 150lbs.! I’d love it if this course could be apart of someone else’s el weight loss journey or used as family bonding time. Please don’t get rid of this course!

Adam Dorn (Arvada, )

There aren’t enough great courses in the world!

Bill Westmoreland (Empire, )

Because Disc Golf should be respected like any other sport and it feels incredibly disrespectful and belittling to hear that a city would willingly allow a Disc Golf course be removed for a ball golf course expansion.

Josh Edwards (London, )

#9192

I love watching the professional disc golfers on this course. It is one of the most beautiful courses in the world and is unique and special to our sport. It has the chance to be the scene for a Major tournament because it is one of the best in Europe if not the world.

Brian Dean (Bolton, )

Ethan McKee (Chillicothe , )

#9230

A primary reason I am visiting Finland is to play this amazing course in Tampere. Ball golf is a dying sport that caters to the retired crowd. Disc golf is played by families and young athletes in Tampere and around the world. Don’t lose this course just to EXPAND a ball golf course. This location will someday be host to the Disc Golf World Championships.

Dylan Courtney (Troy, NY, )

#9234

Disc golf is evolving and I love this sport

David Smith (Seabrook, )

#9235

I am a disc golfer in the United States, planning to come to Finland for vacation, which would include disc golf. I love the nature areas Finland has. I see Finland as having the potential for world class disc golf courses which would draw tourists to play in the summer months, taking advantage of the long days of sunlight.
Disc golf courses don't require as much maintenance as ball golf courses and are better for the environment.
Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter.

Carsen Brunn (NEW KENSINGTN, )

I believe in and appreciate how disc golf is accessible through it's affordability and intricacies in movement. Money seems to often be preferred... I love golf as well, but let's be honest, you builders don't care about enriching people. You're making money from start to finish. Do the right thing for people sometimes. More young eyes, and old, will see this disc golf course, over your chemical filled track

Aaron Eickhoff (Saint Cloud, )

Vaikka perinteisen Golf-jäsenmäärät ovat nousseet viime aikoina, on frisbeegolfin suosio sitäkin kovempi ja kunnon ratoja ei ole liikaa varsinkaan isoissa kaupungeissa, joihin Tamperekin taitaa kuulua. Frisbeegolf on edelleen kasvava laji, joka kiinnostaa kaikenikäisiä ja huomattavasti helpompi ja halvempi harrastaa mitä perinteinen Golf. Ei viedä Tampere Disc Golf Centerin Frisbeegolfin puitteita Golfin takia. Moni nuori ja vanhempi tarvitsee rataa.

Tampereen frisbeegolfrata on tunnettu kansainväliselläkin tasolla. Sen sijaan Tampereen golfkentät eivät nauti kansainvälistä mainetta. Kenttä tulisi säilyttää kotimaisen frisbeegolfin keskuksena, ja siitä on varmasti iloa ja hyötyä Tampereelle nyt, ja jatkossa kun laji edelleen jatkaa kasvuaan.

Petteri Laamo (Helsinki, )

#9761

Discgolf is a fast growing sport and many courses are crowded. It is insane to destroy existing courses when we need more of them! In contrast to ball golf, disc golf is an inexpensive sport with a casual culture, suitable for families and people of all ages and all skill levels.

Peer Törngren (Sollentuna , )

#9998

Disc golf is one of the most growing and expanding sports in the world right now, especially in the Nordics. It would be an absolute disgrace to redo this as a “ball-golf” course. Finland is one of the pioneers in this beautiful sport, please don’t change that!

Jonathan Fahlén (Tampere, )

#10072

Im signing because Disc Golf is a very inclusive sport that deserves a home in every city, especially a course of this caliber! If a Golf Course already exists it shouldn't need to take over a Disc Golf one as well....the use of land alone should be an environmental factor.

No one should lose a disc golf course all the kids that play there maybe its the closes one for them and if its shut down think of how many players its going to be harder for to get to a course and all the memories made there by familys and friends its gonna be all lost because a golf course is gonna wxpand for more grass area that only the golf players will walk on not all the familys that could enjoy that space

Kevin Buys (Boom, )

#10847

Championship Level Courses in Europe are rare, how can such an idea even come up? This is a place where thousands of disc golfers over the world would like to play. What's that compared to a local golf course for a minor group of people. I would have propably never heard of Tampere if it were not for TDGC and the great coverage from there. If I go to finland in the future I will definitely play there and a lot of disc golfers around the world feel the same. Or they will go to finland only because they want to play that course. I think Europe has not nearly enough courses near this level, how can you even consider to take it away again.

The politicians in Stockholm made a similar fuck up when they started to destroy Järva Disc Golf Course this year. It would break my heart watching Tampere making the same mistake without realizing and appreciating what a unique course they are blessed with.

Alexander Falck (Umeå, )

#11479

I wish to travel from Australia to play on a world class course such as this. The option to travel to Finland instead of America is a huge bonus. If the professional level courses are not there, then it would have to be the us instead of Finland and Tempere.

I've been many times there. It is the best disc golf course in Europe.

Joakim Eriksson (Porvoo, )

Finland is the epicenter for the growth of disc golf as a sport. Tampere would be throwing away an opportunity to grow with the sport and instead hurt the growth of disc golf in Finland and Europe as a whole. I hope seeing the support for an amazing course will change the minds of the Tampere City Council.

Disc Golf is growing rapidly. It's a beautiful sport which can bring people from around the world to various locations.

Krzysztof Sadomski (Warsaw, )

#11560

I'm signing because the disc golf community is amazing. I was devastated awhile back when I saw Changes at a local course on a college campus that completely changed the course and diminished its character. I cannot imagine completely removing a course, especially one that is used so frequently and by families and youth. That is unreal and absolutely absurd! How do they not realize that it holds value for so many?! I'm assuming it must be a big city, or this probably wouldn't be an issue with a community being involved. Hope this petition accomplishes its goal. Disc on!

Alex Ellair (Jonesville, )

I’m signing because disc golf is fantastic, new sport for everybody: rich and earning so much money, young and old, all genders! You should love it and support it! Peace

Piotr Kordaszewski (Warsaw, )

This is the fastest growing sport on the planet. Not only would destroying this beautiful course be a disservice to the thousands and thousands of players that frequent it, but it would be a poor move to take away Tampere's chances of hosting a World Championship!

Sixten Strandell (Stockholm, )

#11712

Disc golf is growing much faster than ball golf. I haven't used my ball golf clubs since my first game of disc golf 3 years ago. Disc golf doesn't have the elitist stigma that ball golf has. Removing one of the world's best courses would be a ridiculous thing to do.

Paul Donnelly (Leamington Spa, )

Having visited Tampere when it hosted the World Ultimate (Frisbee) Championships in 2004 I would love to come back and play disc golf there. This course is the perfect reason to visit.

Without the course, we would choose another destination.

I’m an avid Disc Golf enthusiast, and though living in the States I am a fan and supporter of the European scene. Finland being on a bucket list that when travel has returned to a before Covid condition I would love to go visit and play the courses there. Also when this course hosts the Worlds competition it will come with massive amounts of exposure in disc golf and mainstream media.

Justin Killillay (Jacksonville , )

#11900

Tampere is such a rumored destination for disc golfers world wide. Removing the course would be a huge disrespect not only to the local community who put blood, sweat and tears into th3æe course but also to people like myself worldwide who are passionate about the sport but haven't had the means to experience this world class destination yet.

Andreas Bjørke Sollien (Oslo, )

I love the sport of disc golf and this course is a beautiful place for the growing sport

Chris Carlson (Minneapolis, )

#11913

I love watching YouTube videos of disc golf when I’m not playing myself on my big screen TV and Tampere is one of my favourite courses to watch being played. There is no course quite like it. Ball golf courses are on the decline and require a lot more money to maintain than a disc golf course. The world needs to give the #2 fastest growing sport a chance to see its impact on the community’s these courses border. Given time disc golf will be in the Olympics mark my words.

Eric Jageman (Ford City, )

I love disc golf and believe it provides an awesome alternative to regular golf in that the price to get into it is low and it is more affordable to play. It is great for people of all ages.

Thommy Marklund (Piteå, )

#11992

I’m signing because I love disc golf and I would hate to see a course taken by a golf course when there’s way more golf courses than disc golf courses in the world and it’s much easier to find terrain for a golf course than a disc golf course. Also playing golf is much more expensive than disc golf.

Jason Knowles (Kent, )

I run sport programs for disadvantaged population groups. I have seen first hand the benefits of disc golf and the positive impact that it can have on a person's mental, social and physical health. The disc golf course needs to be protected, it is a sport for the future and as the growth of this course continues it will benefit a larger proportion of the community and the greater disc golf community.

I am lucky enough to be able to travel to other countries and play and really look forward to playing this course in the future.

Douglas Endy (Barto, )

Disc golf is one of the fastest growing sports and needs more high caliber courses in the world. Because there are so few, disc golfers will travel all over the country or even world just to play them.

Disc golf is a great sport that gets people outside for fun and competition.

Nathan McAnelly (Houston, )

#12239

Disc golf is an easily accessible sport to the general public while golf requires a much more specialized and expensive set of equipment to participate. Public land should not require the high entry barrier that is associated with a traditional ball golf course and is much more suited to an activity such as disc golf which can often be designed in a way to allow multi-use walking and hiking trails in conjunction with the course.

Aaron Senchuk (Petoskey, )

#12253

disc golf is a significantly more family and new player friendly sport than ball golf can ever be. It is FAR more environmentally friendly and can be enjoyed by far more people in a day than ball golf could ever be.

Best of all, the cost to play is hugely lower than ball golf could ever be.

David Heath (Doncaster, )

#12278

I have been looking forward to visit Finland with friends, and that course in Tampere was the first one we'd visit. Championship level courses for disc golf are few and far between, and Finland is a world leader in the sport. It can help support your economy far better than just another run-of-the-mill ball golf course. Save quality and actively promote it. You've got a gem! Keep it.

Don Lane (Ottawa, )

Let Tampere Disc Golf stand!

Seth Krueger (Overland Park, )

#12338

Disc golf is a family-friendly sport that’s not as cost-prohibitive as golf and is easier to play casually (no required tee time scheduling, no golf cart rental fees or insurance on golf carts, many people have thrown a frisbee before).

Benjamin Baxley (Atlanta, )

#12345

You can't give land for a business to expand at the expense of thousands of disc golfers and the general public who continue to discover this great outdoor activity. Tampere is on of the best courses and draws in many tourists as well.

Paul-Andre Lemieux (Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, )

My wife and I plan to eventually take our honesymoon to europe, and Finland, specifically Tampere, were on our list of places to check out, simply because of the disc golf course. If that is gone, our tourism dollars will go to another town, or country. I hope you reconsider and realize what a gem you have created in your town.

Jamie Escudero (Cincinnati, )

Being an American who has lived and traveled abroad and played disc golf in 8 countries, there are only a few special properties as great as Tampere.

David Andersson (Mjolby, )

Disc golf has an amazing ability to bring together all sorts of people from different walks of life. The time, money and energy that the local club has put into building Tampere Disc Golf Center cannot be overlooked. It would be an absolute shame to lose such a wonderful facility.

Ezra Hapner (Santa Cruz, )

it appears this course has already proven itself of interest to the world community of disc golf players. To deprive the people of a place where not only can they play disc golf, but they can also enjoy nature is a crime. Woods beat lawns any day.

Brian Earhart (Vernon Hills, )

Disc golf is not expensive and is something the whole family can enjoy. Golf has a steep learning curve and cost barriers for people looking to enjoy an outdoor activity. Aside from the cost, disc golf is growing at an incredible rate and the demand for courses has never been higher.

Joe Roaden (Portland , )

#13128

I believe this disc golf course to be the ultimate location for the first Disc Golf World Championships held in Europe. Please do not take this course away from the disc golf community. Instead I hope you would try to help this course and our disc golf community to Grow The Sport and bring the Disc Golf World Championships to Europe.

Disc Golf is the people's sport - it's free and accessible to all who want to play. It has changed my life and many others who have caught the bug.

Douglas Allen (Waco, )

I support the growth of disc golf and firmly believe that any disc golf course is better than a ball golf course. Ball golf is a sport as old as time and is starting to die out, why put up a new course if it’s very possible that in the near future it will be dying.

Connor Jensen (West Bend, )

#13189

The volunteers that have built and cleaned this area up are heros. Blood sweat and tears have been put into this disc golf course. I'm in America and I can see how devastating this would be to the disc golf community around the world.

Jeffry Tate (Lincoln, )

#13208

I will one day travel to Finland and play the Tampere Disc Golf Center. For that to happen the center needs to still exist. Also hundreds of people have put in a ton of work to make that place spectacular for the sport they love, Disc Golf. It would be extremely rude and backstabbing to go and make it a Ball Golf course when those people worked to create it into a piece of land for a sport they feel passionate about.

I'm off Finnish heritage, there are still Runnakko's in Finland, and am an avid disc golfer! I'd like to visit Finland and this course someday.

This is one if the best looking courses in the world and has provided a high level of entertainment watching premier pros compete on this track. It would be a horrible disservice to the local club which has put their heart and soul into this course over the past 3 years.

#13460

I'm from California, so maybe my words don't weigh as heavily as local citizens, though the fact that I'm taking the time to write this from across the world shows how special this place is for the sport of disc golf.

The sport of disc golf is verifiabley growing at a rapid pace around the world and the Tampere Disc Golf Center would become the #1 destination for disc golfers outside of North America. It's potential could easily go as far as hosting the first World's outside of the US, which would result in Tampere truly becoming a holy mecca for all disc golfers on earth.

If preserving one the unarguable top 5 discgolf courses in the world for the sake of locals and the sport itself is not enough, then think of the monetary gain from tourist that the TDGC will undoubtedly bring in one day very soon. The potential of this disc golf course is limitless, so please don't destroy it in its infancy. Let it grow and become the world famous destination its meant to be. EVERYONE WILL PROFIT FROM PERSERVING THIS COURSE!

A limitless amount of money, legacy, and culture is in Tamperes future with preservation of the TDGC. Thank you to anyone who took the time to read this.

Eric Bronson (Ensenada, )

#13539

This particular course is a major asset! The hard work and Commitment put into creating courses, mostly by volunteers should be highly valued, appreciated and supported, especially by the community ut serves! I've seen and experienced the powerful and beautifully positive effect the Discgolf community has to offer all people! Age, gender, etnisity, wealthy or not! This game like any sport or maybe more so has the potential to help you become a better version of you, for yourself and the people around you! Still Discgolf strongly relies upon having great courses dedicated to the sport and those are not only hard to come by but also hard to establish and maintain. Before pushing on I would urge you to look around you and assess what kind of impact it has had on your community over the years. See if there might be more than just some middle aged men screaming at the trees....look in between them and discover the subtle but constant influence it has had in connecting people effortlessly!
The growth rate is unmatched by any other sport and any player from any country would take pride in setting foot in Tampere Disc Golf Center. I believe this sacrifice is too big even to ask for but then again, you don't need to do you!

Ball golf is not as inclusive or cost friendly as disc golf. Disc golf allows literally anyone in the world to play. The amount of work and planning that went into the disc golf course is way too much to just throw away and put another run of the mill ball golf course in.

Disc golf is a quickly growing sport, easily accessible, with many economic benefits.

Jussi Meresmaa is one of the greatest gifts to the sport of disc golf, in the entire world! Discmania and Finland have been one of the most influential forces in the sport for the last 10 years! I know and love the country of Finland more because of disc golf and have every desire to explore Scandinavia and all the gifts you have to offer our global community. Please reconsider your position on Tampere as the eyes of the disc golf world are focused on your beautiful city and absolutely gorgeous courses! I believe you would already be seeing many disc golf tourists visiting if it weren't for the pandemic. We were just introduced to your beautiful city before anyone was really able to make plans to visit! Please give it more time to play out! Thank you!

Tampere is a bucket list disc golf course for many people in the community. Even over here in the states we see pros playing the course and it’s truly a world renowned course. This value proposition this disc golf course creates much rivals whatever a traditional golf course could bring in and that’s coming from a person who plays golf and disc golf and probably lives in one of the hot beds for golf tourism worldwide.
This disc golf course brings people in worldwide to play and this course is always ranked within the top five globally. Instead of creating a golf course just leverage the popularity of this disc golf course and keep the beauty and amazement of this disc golf course.

Although I am from the United States, I strongly believe that Baltic disc golf is the best in the world. I and my wife have watched many rounds from Tampere Disc Good Center on YouTube, and hope to visit when travel is available again. It would be sad for Tampere to waste the remarkable good will it has gained from the International Disc Golf Community on more ball golf which is generally elitist, hard on the environment, and epically oversaturated. Please trust the many young families that use Tampere's Disc Golf, and support this growing sport.

Disc golf is an affordable, family-friendly activity that is growing exponentially in popularity. The city of Tampere just built this course in 2018. I traveled all the way from Portland, OR, USA to play this course. There is demand for disc golf venues, and they have their place alongside golf venues. Removing this course will be a devastating blow to the international disc golf community.

Conner Williams (Portland, OR , )

The work that went into this course will continue the explosive growth of a sport which has been growing faster in Finland than anywhere else in the world.

Disc golf is a sport for all ages. Quick to play & inexpensive to play. It's a lifetime sport that families can play together with friends with only a disc as equipment.

Disc golf is one of the fastest growing sports and needs more high caliber courses in the world. Because there are so few, disc golfers will travel all over the country or even world just to play them

Disc golf is an incredible sport that deserves every chance to continue to grow. The destruction of the Tampere course is a massive detractor to those wanting to get involved in the sport. It’s a beautiful course that is a staple in the disc golf community.

Disc golf is spreading across the world, gaining attention at a very rapid pace. Destroying the best DG course in Europe could prove to be a huge mistake in the long run. Not to mention the immense amount of work that has gone into it.
