Pärnu Bay Golf Links

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2015

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