Kytäjä Golf (North West course)

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

Est. 2004

Kytäjä Golf: Designed by renowned Canadian golf course architect Tom McBroom, the South East and North West course at Kytäjä Golf are often ranked the No.1 and No.2 best courses in Finland.

Completed a year after its sibling South East course, the North West layout features ever-changing topography that ensures a challenging and absorbing layout. The first five holes are located in an expansive and open landscape, while the rest of the course plays through diverse and rugged terrain with significant changes in elevation and some tree-lined holes.

Although there are no directly lakeside holes, as on the South East, there's a great view of Lake Kytäjä and the clubhouse complex from the back of the 17th tee.
