Parnu Bay, Es­to­nia

Golf World (UK) - - New Destinations -

We’ve not long re­turned from this new course on the edge of the Baltic Sea and can con­fi­dently state that spec­tac­u­lar im­ages like the one adorn­ing this page are not mis­lead­ing. How­ever, it’s not just Parnu Bay’s coastal lo­ca­tion that makes it so spe­cial. In­vig­o­rat­ing as it is, that might not even be the course’s main at­trac­tion. As en­joy­able are the firm, tightly-cropped fes­cue fair­ways that make strik­ing an iron so pleas­ing, and the width off the tee that gets ev­ery­one in play but of­fers so much choice and strat­egy to bet­ter play­ers. So, too, are the funky greens that mean the en­ter­tain­ment doesn’t stop un­til the ball is in the hole.

If you’re think­ing ‘it’s a long way to go to play just one course, even if it is great’, we’d counter by re­veal­ing Parnu is a fa­mous Baltic hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion on ac­count of its pris­tine white sand beach. So it is very easy to cre­ate a terrific long week­end for cou­ples or groups. There’s a sec­ond Top 100-class round at Es­to­nian GCC near Tallinn if you wish.
