An emerging force
Finland as a nation is not often considered a golfing destination to go to in Europe. While it is true that golf in Finland is still an emerging sport that’s not to say that the courses here are not worth visiting. There is so much to see and do in Finland, the nation is known for its marvellous historic and cultural sites and with up to 18 hours of sun in the summer there is plenty of time to see and do everything both on and off the course.
Treat your senses with a golf trip in Finland
Finland is truly an emerging force to be reckoned with, in regards to golf. The country is following a similar trend to Sweden pulling more focus onto its golf infrastructure and as a result, there are many outstanding courses for aspiring visitors to take advantage of.
One of Finland’s best courses and certainly one to look out for on your next trip to Finland is the Linna golf course at Linna Golf Resort, located an hour north of the capital Helsinki. The course is a Tim Lobb design, incorporating a spectacular pine forest into its many twisting holes, as well as some well-placed water features and rocky outcrops. The course also has the honour of being a European Tour property which it owes to its fantastic quality.
Beautiful landscapes, long summers and more
Golf in Finland often raises eyebrows, but as the sport grows in the country, the appreciation for the great courses on offer does too. The ideal summer climate means golf can be played 24/7 with the sun never fully setting, perfect for any golfers looking for more than one round.
Lina Golf Club is often ranked as the best in the country and has got the backing of the European Tour, becoming one of their ‘destination’ courses. The Tim Lobb design is set among a spectacular pine forest and provides a range of challenging and enjoyable holes. The courses in Finland are kept in immaculate condition with fairways boarded by rocky outcrops.
