Where2Golf says: 

The Cooke course at Vierumäki Golf Club is one of Finland's well-rated championship courses. This tree-lined parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted and pleasantly testing design. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

At this Stay & Play venue, the on-site accommodation is located close to the golf facilities.
