European Tour Destinations’ two most northern venues in Finland and Estonia, Linna Golf and Estonian Golf & Country Club respectively, have extended their long-running affiliation with the network.
Located 100 kilometers from the Finnish capital, Helsinki, and ranked 60th in the Top 100 Resorts in Continental Europe, Linna Golf is home to an 18-hole Championship golf course and a clubhouse with three restaurants. Great practice facilities are complimented by other outdoor pursuits which can be enjoyed throughout the long summer days.
Esa Honkalehto, CEO of Linna Golf, said:
“Linna Golf has been a member of the European Tour Destinations network since 2005 and renewing our partnership is testament to both the work they do and support they provide. As we enter another phase of our relationship, we look forward to continuing to grow Linna Golf and showcasing our venue on a global scale by being part of the European Tour family.”
By the Baltic Sea.
Estonian Golf & Country Club (3rd hole pictured atbove) is situated 25 kilometers from the capital Tallinn in a rural, coastal environment beside the Baltic Sea. Home to the 18-hole Championship centerpiece, the Sea course, and its sister, the 9-hole Stone course, the venue has been a constant in the European Tour Destinations network for over a decade.
The Sea course meanders more than 7,000 yards through virgin forest which reaches out to the beach and along the Jägala Rive. The Stone course lies on a limestone plain between junipers, restored stone fences and a protected national heritage site. During the winter season when the golf courses are closed, a 5.3km ski trail which weaves through the Sea course opens to guests.
There is also a variety of exclusive and distinct real estate opportunities available at the resort. Each development is divided into ‘villages’, where a different architect has designed a unique property cluster.
Hanno Kross, CEO at Estonian Golf & Country Club, said:
“For a young golfing nation like Estonia, we are very happy and proud to be part of the European Tour Destinations network. Estonian Golf & Country Club has hosted the World Cup qualifiers twice plus multiple individual and team European Championships, and working with the European Tour has given us the chance to get the knowledge and expertise required to achieve our goals.”
