Sad business, really.

I played it once only, and it really is the best course I have ever played. A true gem.

To make it into a graveyard, a travesty (even before when I didnt know about the landfill business).

Say what you will*, but in my books, mortal remains are best cremated and scattered. Its nice to have some place to reminisce, but a whole park with tombstones is not just in line with modern times anymore. Problem is, many immigrant religions into Sweden do not allow for cremation, adding more pressure for having huge land areas for old fashioned burial.

*About afterlife, though, there may be something on the other side but I am pretty sure it doesnt hinge on what happened to the previous vessel when used up.

Disc golf course to graveyard.......why can't it be both? Honestly, I think this every time I pass a cemetery.

One of the best courses on the world may literally end up in a graveyard? Not quite proper use of the word ironic, but that's the word that comes to mind.

Not that I was planning to play it any time soon, but it suxxorz.

Nothing new regarding information. I am interested in Jarva's outcome. The article was a bit too wordy for me.

I think we need a compromise to save this course... https://www.capsulamundi.it/en/

Just put all the dead folk into tree-seed-nutrient-pod-thingies, and put those trees around the course. And... um.. when people come to pay respects make sure to yell 'FORE!' in a very reverent and deferential manner.

Put me in a pine box in my backyard the way Clint Eastwood’s undertakers used to do it. In a few years I’ll be good compost for the yard.

We have 2 50,000 gallon manure ponds on the farm- i want to have my ashes dumped in one and spread on the fields. I would also like my memorial service to be pond-side.
