Eckerö Golf with its 18-hole golf course offers great opportunities to play golf. Eckerö Golf opened for business in 1995 with a 9-hole golf course and driving range and the 18-hole golf course was opened in 2014. There was a change of ownership before the 2015 season: the course was renovated and new bunkers and beautiful water hazards were put in to make the playing experience more interesting and challenging.

The driving range is centrally located and has ten tees. Eckerö Golf’s services include access to changing rooms, showers and toilets. The club is also able to offer light refreshments. There are gloves, balls and other equipment to buy. Golf clubs and carts can be hired.

Four tees

The ‘front nine’ (holes 1–9) have an open feel and are located in the Åland agricultural landscape. The ‘back nine’ (holes 10–18) are a forest course, framed by pine forest and marshland. The going is easy.

The course has four different tees so that everyone can have a good golfing experience. This means that beginners, juniors and other short-striking players have a golf course where they can get to the green with the right number of strokes. Equally, the course is suitable for intermediate golfers as well, and it even provides a challenge for elite golfers, especially the last nine forest holes.

On the sunny side of Åland

Eckerö Golf is situated only 10 minutes by car from the ferry harbour in Eckerö Berghamn and 30 minutes from Mariehamn.

Eckerö is surrounded by the sea on all sides – this is where three horizons meet! It has both stunning sandy beaches and smooth red granite rocks. If you want to watch the sun go down over the sea, you’re in the right place. Eckerö has the most sunshine hours in the whole of Åland and Åland has more sunshine hours than Gotland.

Activities round and about

You can trace the history of the Viking voyages, the Postrodden sailing and rowing race commemorating the risky postal service over the Sea of Åland when Eckerö was at the frontier between Tsarist Russia and the Swedish mainland. Visit Eckerö Post and Customs House, which is open from the beginning of May till the beginning of September. Entry is free. 

Around Eckerö Golf there is also a wide selection of restaurants, hotels, guest houses, camping sites, cafés, holiday villages and cabins where you can stay overnight. For example, Anderssons Gästhem & Gårdsbageri is located a stone’s throw from the golf course. Alternatively, if you would prefer to stay right by the sea, there are camping sites, hotels and cottages in Käringsund and Degersand. Are you going to Åland in your own boat? Then you can stay overnight at Käringsund guest marina. More accommodation options.

Eckerö also has many activities that are suitable for all ages, such as Leklandet adventure playground in Eckeröhallen, Käringsunds Game Safari, Åland Hunting and Fishing Museum and the Smart Park family park on the other side of the road from the golf course. Take the whole family with you on your golfing holiday – in Eckerö everyone will find something to do!
