Estonia Golf & Country Club (Sea course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Estonia Golf & Country Club (Sea course) Est. 2005

Where2Golf says: 

Estonia Golf & Country Club, home to the 18-hole championship Sea course and 9-hole Stone course, is located alongside the Jägala River, a short drive from Estonia's capital city of Tallinn. Rated amongst the top 100 courses in continental Europe, the Sea course occupies a wonderfully natural setting, with many of the holes played through pristine woodland.

The signature short par-4 3rd hole, played downhill from an elevated tee, serves up a glorious view out onto the Gulf of Finland's Ihasalu Bay. This more open part of the course is revisited as you play the also stunning par-5 15th, which starts alongside the Jägala River before expansive wetlands take-over as you near the Bay.

Did you know?

The clubhouse at Estonian G&CC was designed in the form of a large modern barn-dwelling, situated on the edge of a limestone bank.

The country of Estonia declared and fought for its independence from Russia in 1918, during the time of the Bolshevik takeover in Russia and German advances into Russia during the First World War. Ethnic Estonians have historically shared close cultural ties with their northern neighbour, Finland. Estonian, the official language of Estonian, is closely related to Finnish.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
