Play golf in FinlandDuring summertime it stays light for quite some time in Finland; that's one of the reasons why a lot of people play a game of golf after work. Sometimes people play until after midnight. Certainly further to the north there is plenty of daylight during the summers. Playing a round of golf in Finland under the midnight sun is an unprecedented experience. The Finnish golf season lasts from May to September and often even a bit longer. During the summer temperatures usually lie around 20-25 degrees Celsius during the day. A great temperature for playing golf. In the south of Finland the summer sun shines 21 hours a day, with a few hours of twilight after sunset. That means you can play golf for almost 24 hours a day. This also means that the golf courses are not busy, because the number of players can be spread over almost 24 hours. There are dozens of tournaments every summer. The Midnight Golf Tournaments usually start or end at midnight. Playing in the late evening and night in 'normal daylight' is unique and you have to experience it once.

Linna Golf
Fantastic golf club, top notch golf course. Fairway are fairly open and forgiving and some holes are really long. To me this course will satisfy the long players. Greens are absolutely perfect and bunkers (and the sand) are so beautiful and well maintained that it is enjoyable to be trapped in one of them from time to time. The clubhouse is very relax and staff is very …

Tapiola Golf
Tapiola Golf is a well designed golf course built on a piece of land that used to be a municipal landfill. There wasn't too much space to build the course, but the architect has done well in creating a course that offers a lot of strategic golf holes with interesting green sites. The playing surfaces are "linksy", that is firm and often fast, too. The course is by no me…
