Aland Islands

Åland is an autonomous, Swedish-speaking region of Finland and the Aland Islands are located at the mouth of the Baltic Sea between eastern Sweden and southwestern Finland. Åland is made up of more than 6,000 islands covering more than 500 square miles. The Åland Islands are mainly uninhabited and less than 30,000 people live here. In fact, only 65 islands are inhabited and 40% of the population live in the only town, Mariehamn on the main island. If you are looking for peace and quiet and dramatic landscapes, this gorgeous archipelago will fit the bill.

There are only two golf clubs on Aland and both are located on the main island and one can boast 42 holes. The Åland Golf Club consists of the King’s course, Castle course (closed for renovation until May 2020) and a 6-hole short course called the Princess. Eckerö Golf Club in Godby, close to the harbour, has an 18-hole par 73 course.

When we next re-rank Finland in 2020 we will consider all Åland courses for the Finnish national rankings – previously, and incorrectly, we did not incorporate the Åland Islands within Finland.
