Awesome! Thanks, I would really love to go on those long summer days so that we could play a course in the morning, sight see a bit during the day and then play another in the evening. That would basically be ideal for 7-10 days and 15-22 courses.

Sounds like an awesome trip. You can play up to 10-11PM around summer solstice. God, can it be summer already??

I have submitted few dozen corrections, mainly courses that have been redesigned or upgraded from 9 to 18+ hole course, but there are still a lot of them and especially further course details are missing on most.

Kuopio area is strong contender if you want to play plenty of quality full lenght courses within 10-20 minutes of drive from each other.

The Finnish directory is fine for finding them and rating them. Also many visitors get onto a group on Facebook for some hive mind suggestions for itineraties. Frisbeegolf Suomi is the largest group by far.
The benefit would be that we have a single, consolidated source of information for disc golfers worldwide. Rather than having to go to hard to find country specific directories, each with different layouts and containing different information, having a uniform data source would be ideal.

I know there are hundreds of people, like me, that like to track their played courses and having all the information already there makes it easy. I love being able to see and share my global course map on my DGCR profile. This way users could also build out their wish list.

Back in 2011-2012 when I was 'studying abroad', I spent a significant chunk of time updating the German directory on this site and I had numerous people message me saying that they were grateful that I did so.

Additionally, having a single source of truth allows for data analysis that would be incredibly difficult to do if you have to scrap data from various data sources. You could easily gather data in a single place and understand trends and changes.

I'm sure there are plenty more reasons, this is just off the top of my head.

Fair enough. I just dont see it happening because theres not much incentive for it. If the Finnish site didnt exist, then maybe yes, but personally I dont have the time to punch in the data that I feel so marginally useful. \_(ツ)_/

I'm trying to keep up with you to transcribe all the hole data from the maps to the course pages. You're giving me a workout over here!

My wife just came into the office and notified me that it's 2:45pm and I haven't talked to her yet today.

On the plus side, up to 686 in Finland!

Smile through the pain!

Next year should be easier since, ideally, we'll just have to sift through 2020 additions.
