The Saras course at Keimola Golf is something of a composite layout as holes 1-4 and 14-18 were part of Pekka Wesamaa’s original design before Kosti Kuronen then added holes 5-13 in 2003 to fashion the course that’s in play today.
The initial layout at Keimola was designed as three 9-hole loops, with “A” and “B” completed in 1990 then “C” opening a year later. When the fourth circuit was added, the new holes connected to the old “C” loop to create the 18-hole Saras course and the other two loops combined to form the Kirkka.
The Saras extends to just over 6,200 metres from the back markers, playing to a par of 72. Water features only occasionally during a round here, most noticeably at the 395-metre 5th (where a small pond sits in front of the green) and at the 352-metre 16th, which has a small lake running along the right side of the fairway.
