120 top international golfers in the Ladies European Tour agree: Slottsbanan at Ålands Golfklubb is of the highest European standard when it comes to golf courses. Golfers ranked it as one of the best tournament courses in 2022.
Last year, the Ladies European Tour chose to hold one of its subtournaments in Åland. For three days in the beginning of September 2022, some 120 elite international golfers competed for the prize pool on Slottsbanan at Ålands Golfklubb. Anne-Charlotte Mora of France won the subtournament.
High quality greens
It isn’t only the professionals who hold Slottsbanan in high regard - it is equally popular among recreational golfers. In the summer of 2020, Slottsbanan reopened after a comprehensive renovation, resulting in a very popular course that follows the seashore even more closely. Golfers praise the new course for its absolutely lovely stretch along Slottsundet Bay, where you have a view of the sea from all 18 holes. After three played seasons, thousands of rounds and a European tour, it is also clear that Slottsbanan is maintaining its high standards, especially on the greens.
In addition to Slottsbanan, the Kungsbanan course is also available to guests, offering them a beautifully hilly, forested 18-hole course. The Princess short course, with its six par-3 holes, is perfect for anyone wanting to try golf or work on their technique.
Even more golf
Eckerö Golf on Åland’s west coast appeals to golfers of all skill levels thanks to its four different tees at all of the course’s 18 holes, even those with excellent greens. This gives everyone a chance to finish the hole within their handicap. The first nine holes of the course are a bit easier, but the last nine are longer and more challenging.
Book well in advance!
Golf is a sport that is growing in popularity, and golf clubs are receiving a large number of satisfied guest players each year. One tip is to plan well in advance and book your accommodation already now and tee times for the whole year. This applies especially to bookings for large groups.
