Where2Golf says: 

Ålands Golf Club is located in the far southwest corner of Finland on the largest of the Åland Islands. Laid out on a cape between two inlets in the region of Kastelholm, you will find two 18-hole layouts, the lakeside Castle course (Slottsbanan) and more forested King’s course (Kungsbanan), as well as the shorter 6-hole Princess (Prinsessan) course.

Did you know?

Most of the Castle course offers views over Slottssundet Bay, across which you can see Ålands only castle, Kastelholm. In the 16th century, King Eric XIV of Sweden was imprisoned in the castle's tower. The King's course is named after the famous King Gustavus Vasa, and is located in the ancient hunting grounds of the Royal Manor of Kastelholm where Swedish kings used to hunt elk hundreds of years ago.

The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
