About

Finland is a country of contrasting seasons, crisp clean air, forests, lakes and thousands upon thousands of saunas. During the long summers months when the sun never sets, Helsinki is alive with performing arts festivals whilst the vast countryside remains largely undiscovered by tourists. During the long dark winters Finland is paradise for cross-country skiing… becoming a snowy wonderland.

Naturally if you want to sample some wonderful Finnish golf courses you will need to visit between the months of May and September. The Finns were late in realising their love for golf and in the early 1980s they had just a mere handful of courses to choose from. Today there are 125 courses and around of 140,000 affiliated Finnish golfers. Remarkably, Finland has the 10th highest number of registered golfers in Europe.

Our rankings of the Top 50 Golf Courses of Finland were last updated in March 2022. Click the link to read the story.
