The golf season is long in Åland – from the beginning of May to the end of October. This is thanks to the sea, which warms Åland in the autumn and keeps the greens in good condition for much longer. The favourable winters also mean that the golf courses are ready to be played from the beginning of spring. In Åland you’ll find all the challenges a golfer can ask for. The atmosphere at the golf establishments is pleasant and familiar and the courses offer varied play both when it comes to the type of course and landscape elements.
