Pärnu Bay Golf Links


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.

Where2Golf says: 

Pärnu Bay Golf Links: Just two kilometers from the city of Pärnu is Tahkuranna, a place where the forest meets the sea and home of the Pärnu Bay Golf Links. Tahkuranna takes its Estonian name from the area's sandstone substratum. On this easy-draining sandy sub-soil, this wonderfully natural "true" links (rather than "links-style") course is laid out.

Tilanders' well-crafted design occupies a wonderfully diverse environment of sandy terrain, coastal lagoons, meadowland and forest. The course is relatively flat, characterised by gently rippling terrain rather than towering windswept sand dunes. Here you'll find wide fairways, expansive sand areas, fescue grasses and multi-tiered greens that are home to mesmerising slopes and borrows.

From the course many scenic views can be enjoyed overlooking the Gulf of Riga's Pärnu Bay, especially on the immensely scenic closing three-hole stretch. The same enchanting views can also be enjoyed from Pärnu Bay's ultra-modern, glass-walled clubhouse.

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...
