About

Estonia is mystical and perhaps a little old-fashioned in a magical way, with its well-preserved medieval cities, so if you fancy stepping back in time to a bygone era, Estonia will tick the box. Estonians have a rich heritage of folklore and tradition along with a culture of music in the forms of songs, verses and chants, which are celebrated during the various festivals throughout the year. Watch out for the witches and ghosts, especially during the White Lady Festival where Estonia’s most famous ghost is said to appear… quite fitting for a country with such fascinating eccentricity.

Estonia is a not yet a popular European golfing destination but according to the Estonian Golf Association, they currently have nine courses and plans are afoot to extend existing courses from 9 to 18 holes and build new ones. Clearly golf is at the beginning in Estonia but the sport is starting to interest the nation.

Niitvälja golf course, located 30 kilometres southwest of Tallinn, is one of the best courses in the country and host venue for the Estonian Open. However, the 18-hole Sea course at Estonian Golf & Country Club, which opened in 2005, raised the golfing bar in the Baltics, but the 2015 opening of Pärnu Bay Golf Links has rocketed the bar into a higher stratosphere.

Our Estonian golf course rankings were last updated in January 2020.
