I was privileged to play four rounds at Linna while staying at a lake house on the very beautiful Vanajavesi, back in May of this year. Linna is a beautiful and very hilly woodland, parkland layout. For so early in the season (I was told that the course just opened the week prior to my visit), the fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The course plays to 6500 yards from the men's tees, though often the approach was quite uphill to a green well guarded by front bunkering. Quite a challenging layout! I was pleased to see very few power carts; almost all players were walkers. And cool to see Mikko Ilonen's locker in the men's locker room! I would be very happy having Linna as my home course; it's one I could play over and over again. Fun golf, lovely setting, and friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommended when in the area.
