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.

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.

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...
