9 km SE of Hämeenlinna / 74 km W of Lahti.
Linna Golf is home to one of the best championship golf courses in Finland. This predominantly tree-lined parkland layout, located close to but not directly alongside the Katumajärvi lake, provides a excellent test for your all-round game.
Tim Lobb's design weaves through an expansive and undulating environment, with plenty of elevation change, and tall birch and pines defining many of the holes. The good-width fairways are not overly troubled by water, but plenty of attractive bunkers and sometimes penal rough also line the way as you journey towards the extravagantly large greens. There's many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy in the Linna championship layout.

Linna Golf is laid out in the grounds of the Vannajanlinna Estate and the historic Äikäälä farm, which dates back to the Middle Ages. The baronnial castle, which now serves as Linna's onsite hotel, was not constructed until the late-1910s, when Dr Carl Wilhelm Rosenlew bought the Äikäälän farm. In 1998 Vanajanlinna was bought by Mika Walkamo and Pekka Vihma, who set about developing the Stay&Play concept that Linna now offers.
