Book your summer golf trip now! With two 18-hole courses, Slottsbanan and Kungsbanan and the short-hole course Prinsessan, Ålands GK is the optimal golf course for everyone.

For two years, Ålands Golfklubb has been rebuilding there 18-hole course Castle Corse (Slottsbanan), and in the summer of 2020, the completely renovated course opened.

Water plays a bigger role
The club hired Danish course architect Philip Spogárd who developed a new master plan for the course.

  • Spogárd stated that they should use the bay Slottsundet, which the track runs along in a better way. He planned the course so that the water gets a much bigger part in the game than before, says Åsa Nordström at Ålands Golfklubb.
    As an example, Nordström mentions new holes 9 and 10 which are located right next to Slottsundet. There you can - if you dare - cross the water to shorten the distance to the flag.

  • Another big difference is that you can now see the sea from all 18 holes. There are also many places on the course where you have an absolutely fantastic view of the medieval Kastelholm Castle on the other side of the bay. We really benefit from our unique environment to 110 percent after the renovation, says Åsa Nordström, former club director at ÅGK.

Tactics become more important
Only one of the 18 new holes on Castle Course is located on land where there was no golf course before. The other holes have been planned where the old course was, but still the change is huge.

  • In some cases, two old holes have been merged and become a new longer hole, and in some cases an old long hole has become two shorter holes. In some cases, you play the holes from a different direction than before. New tees and more undulating greens have been built and the opportunities for tactics have become greater. You can play the same hole in several different ways depending on how good you are as a golfer, says Nordström.
