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.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted.
