Members at Viipurin Golf Club play their golf at the 18-hole Etelä-Saimaa course on the small island of Tuosa, some fifteen minutes from Lappeenranta. This course, which first opened for play in 2007, is the latest in a long line of golfing layouts that have served several generations of golfers since the inception of the club in Helsinki back in 1938.

The club was forced to move from its former location due to bomb damage during World War II then, in the early 1960s, the expansion of an adjacent airport caused the club to set up a 9-hole course at Kahilanniemi, close to the centre of Lappeenranta, with fairways laid out along the shores of Lake Saimaa. This 9-hole course is still in use, offering members a 27-hole facility that’s spread over two sites.
