Why golf in Estonia?

It is a new and exiting destination

Been there? Done that? Why not surprise yourself with a novel destination that will show a side of Europe you've never seen? It will keep you talking for months. Estonia is still a relatively undiscovered country. Golf in Estonia is even less known. That means you will get your first glimpse of an exotic, new destination that's chock full of surprises, from the historic, fairytale charm of Tallinn's Old Town to the natural beauty of the country's primeval forests and rugged seacoast picked with some fantastic golf venues.

Estonia is a considerable golf destination and a great alternative to other much visited destinations – new, diferent and very interesting indeed. Currently there are six golf courses around Estonia, although very close to each other they are very different from each other and have their own unique look, well maintained and offering at least average or superb quality.




With the short golf history starting from 1993, Estonian golf has already gained a remarkable attention in the world:


Estonia is closer than you think

estonian-airGetting to Estonia is easy. Most major European cities are less than two hours away by air. Tallinn is only one hour from Stockholm and Copenhagen and two hours from Amsterdam, Brussels, Berlin and Frankfurt.


White nights

Imagine playing golf at midnight? In summer, there can be 19 hours of daylight, known locally as the "white nights". The long summer days may offer a lot of fun playing golf from 5 a.m. until the midnight enjoying up to 19 hours of good light. Check out the „white nights" and „midnight golf" packages.




Compact - everything within walking distance

Size matters, and when it comes to hosting events for large groups, smaller is definitely better. Distances in Estonia are conveniently short. After landing at any of the international airports, you can be in your respective city centres in just ten minutes. The cities themselves are built on a very human scale, with major hotels, sights, restaurants and shopping concentrated the same central area, all within easy walking distance.


Brand new hotel facilities, low rates

Estonia's major hotels are all either newly built or newly renovated, so they're as modern and high-quality as they come. Nowadays it's hard to find a guest room or conference room that's more than five years old. Better still, prices are reasonable and rates for 4- and 5-star hotels are easily among the lowest on the continent. In the centre of Tallin you'll find a good mix of hotels all within walking distance from the Tallinn Old Town, restaurants and other entertainment facilities.


Medieval and Modern - a blend of old and new

tallinn_medievalmodernFirst-time visitors are amazed by Estonia's historic ambience. Imagine strolling past Medieval walls and gates, Gothic churches, curious little lanes lit with old-fashioned lamps and a man in 16th-century merchant's garb selling his wares from a cart. At the same time Estonia's cities are surprisingly modern, with the latest high-tech conveniences always at hand. It's this combination of old and new, Medieval and modern, that gives Estonia its unique flavour.


Tallinn – European Capital of Culture in 2011

The capital, Tallinn, is best known for its unforgettable, UNESCO-listed Medieval Old Town, a fairytale neighborhood of cobblestone streets, gabled houses, picturesque lanes and Gothic churches that was built up from the 13th to the 16th centuries. Here culturally-minded visitors can explore a vast range of museums, churches and handicraft workshops, or visit the KUMU art museum, named Europe's best museum in 2008. Next year Tallinn will be packed with events as it takes on the title of European Capital of Culture. In 2011, Europe's best stories will be told in Tallinn.

This is, after all, where Skype was invented.


Other pluses:

Hassle-free borders

English widely spoken

English-speaking visitors will have no trouble communicating in Estonia. As residents of one of the smallest EU nations, Estonians have embraced the international language and proficiency levels are quite high.
