About the course

Pärnu Bay Golf Links is a links course in the true sense of the word: a coastal stretch of land with sandy soil and fescue grasses – a true test of every golfer’s abilities.

The course was designed by architect Lassi Pekka Tilander with Mick McShane as the lead shaper, best known as the lead shaper for famous St. Andrews Links’ Castle Course and Kingsbarns Golf Links.

The course is the first links course in the Baltic region and features wide fairways and expansive sand areas, as well as multi-leveled greens with bold movement. The par-72 course plays from 4,500 to 6,200 meters.
