The
2025
Professional
Disc
Golf
Association
Professional
World
Championships
will
be
held
in
Nokia
and
Tampere,
Finland,
the
sport’s
governing
body

announced
today
.
It
will
be
the
first
time
that
the
PDGA
World
Championship
outside
of
North
America.

The
tournament
will
be
led
by
Jussi
Meresmaa,
the
long-time
TD
of
the
European
Open
in
Finland.
It
is
set
to
be
held
at
two
courses:
The
Beast
in
Nokia
(the
usual
home
of
the
European
Open)
and
the
Tampere
Disc
Golf
Center.

“Bringing
the
PDGA
World
Championships
to
Finland
has
been
my
goal
for
over
a
decade,”
said
Meresmaa
in
a
statement.
“To
facilitate
that,
we
have
developed
the
European
Open
in
Nokia
as
a
premier
annual
Major
event
and
created
a
new
championship
level
course
to
Tampere.
Combining
those
two
has
given
us
an
opportunity
to
bid
for
the
most
prestigious
disc
golf
event
in
the
world.
I
can’t
describe
how
excited
and
proud
I
am
to
be
able
to
arrange
the
first
ever
PDGA
Worlds
in
Europe.
It
is
an
honor.”

There
have
been
years
of
speculation
about
a
European
Worlds,
and
a
Meresmaa-led
Finland
bid
fell
short
for
the
2024
tournament,
which
will
be
held
in
Virginia.
The
timing
of
the
2025
Pro
Worlds
has
not
been
announced,
though
the
PDGA
said
that
it
will
be
held
close
to
the
European
Open
on
the
schedule
to
“maximize
travel
efficiencies
for
players.”

2025
European
Open
Headed
to
Estonia

Estonian
disc
golf
is
booming.
The
country
will
play
host
to
a
DGPT
event
in
2024,
the
Estonian
Disc
Golf
Festival,
and
will
now
host
a
Major
in
2025
at
the
same
location.
With
Worlds
heading
to
the
traditional
host
venue
for
the
European
Open,
the
latter
will
be
held
in
Tallinn,
Estonia,
in
summer
2025.

“We
boast
an
exceptionally
strong
and
experienced
team
at
Team
Disc
Golf
Estonia,”
said
Silver
Leetma
in
a
statement.
“Speaking
for
everyone
on
board,
we’re
profoundly
grateful
for
the
chance
to
host
a
Major
tournament
in
Tallinn
come
2025.
The
European
Championships
in
2023
marked
our
ambitious
beginning.
The
European
Disc
Golf
Festival
in
2024,
a
jewel
in
the
DGPT
elite
series,
is
set
to
double
in
magnitude,
paving
the
way
for
an
even
more
spectacular
Major
in
2025.”

US
Women’s
Disc

the

disc
golf.
The

which
features
FPO
along

extensive
amateur
divisions

is
set
to
be
held
across
four
courses:
Silver
Creek
DGC,
Rollin’
Ridge
DGC,
Cato
Falls
DGC,
and
Indian
Creek
DGC.

“Our
enthusiastic
crew
has
been
working
since
2020
bringing
U.S.
Womens
Disc
Golf
Championships
to
the
Eastern
Coast
of
Wisconsin,
now
it’s
time
to
really
get
to
work,”
said
Jim
Van
Lanen
in
a
statement.

Thank
you
