Introducing the European Disc Golf Festival 2024 in Tallinn, Estonia!

This year marks a monumental occasion for Estonian disc golf scene, as Estonia hosts its first-ever DGPT elite event from July 26th to 28th.

The Tallinn Song Festival Grounds will transform into a disc golf haven as 140 top players from around the globe come together to take on the challenging Rockstar course. But the fun doesn't stop there – we've got a bustling vendor village, late-night performances, and an abundance of delicious food and drinks to keep the energy high throughout the festival.

Located conveniently in the heart of Tallinn, the Song Festival Grounds provide the perfect backdrop for this event. Whether you're arriving by ship or plane, getting to the venue is a breeze. It's just a 5-minute drive from Tallinn Harbor and a 10-minute drive from Tallinn Airport. And if you're in need of travel or accommodation deals, check out our homepage for more information. 

We're also already looking ahead to next year, where we're gearing up for an even bigger event. It’s a Major event with even bigger names, and even more excitement. With only four Majors worldwide, this is like the grand slam of disc golf – an absolute must-see for any fan.

Now, let's talk about where to play disc golf near Tallinn because we know the feeling of watching an event all day long and then itching for a round yourself.

Sportland Kõrvemaa Hiking and Skiing Center: Just 55km from the Song Festival Grounds, this center boasts well-maintained disc golf courses suitable for all ages and skill levels. With its hilly terrain and expansive forest corridors, it's a true disc golf paradise. Kõrvemaa has both a professional and an amateur layout. 

Buen Kiiu Park: Located approximately 40km from the festival grounds, Buen Kiiu Park offers a diverse range of challenges, from open fields to dense forests. Keep an eye out for the notorious out-of-bounds areas (OBs), and brace yourself for anything – especially when the wind picks up.

Männiku Disc Golf Park: Nestled in a beautiful pine forest, Männiku Disc Golf Park is a haven for accurate players. With its water hazards and stunning surroundings, it's a nice blend of fun and challenge, just 20km from the festival grounds.

Kurna Disc Golf Park: If you're seeking a more relaxed round, head to Kurna Disc Golf Park, located in a charming old manor park just 20km from the festival grounds. While the holes may be shorter, don't be fooled – there are still water hazards and OBs to keep you on your toes.

Oh, and are you wondering what else to do while in town? Albert 'Bazooka' Tamm, a multiple-time Estonian champion who has been touring the USA since 2019, shares his top recommendations:

Tallinn Old Town

The Old Town is very versatile, with all of its restaurant, pubs, parks, beautiful buildings and sights to see on every corner. During the daytime, my favourite place would have to be Šnelli park, but I usually prefer Tallinn at night – I’ll walk up to Toompea, find a sightseeing platform and just gaze at the lit up Tallinn. And I must admit – it usually takes me two tries to find an escape from Toompea. You’ll see what I mean when you get there.

Haven Kakumäe

The best sunsets in Tallinn happen here! Since it’s a bit further away from the city, there’s less people and a slower pace there, which I really like.

Vesivärava Café

Vesivärava Café might be just as well known as The Old Town. The café is right next to the Kadriorg Stadium, so you might be able to do some celebrity spotting and run into Johannes Erm. I love to have breakfast here, I’ll spoil myself with some pastries as a side for an omelette and might even grab some for the road. Beware though, the saleswoman in the café know what their job well and you might end up with more than what you came for. But there’s never too many pastries, am I right!?

Balti Jaama Turg (Balti Jaama Market)

Balti Jaama Turg is my usual go-to place for lunch or dinner – the street food vibes keep a chill environment and it’s a nice place to have a chat with friends. Everybody will definitely find something to their taste there!
