Linna Golf, Finland, opens luxury clubhouse including ultra-modern golf suites featuring saunas with views over the course

(Vanajanlinna, Finland – June 18, 2007) Linna Golf, Europe’s best new course and a member of the PGA European Tour Courses group, has announced the opening of its new, luxury clubhouse, with ultra-modern golf suites, holiday apartments and spa.

The striking, rustic-style clubhouse, beautifully converted from 80-year-old farm buildings, includes 18 golf suites, each with its own private sauna offering views over the acclaimed golf course on the historic Vanajanlinna Castle estate, only an hour1s drive from Helsinki.

Mika Walkamo, President of Linna Golf, said: “Vanajanlinna is Finland’s only country house hotel and offers a unique experience amid historic surroundings. Now we have a fantastic new clubhouse with modern, luxury accommodation and spa facilities to complement the hotel.”

Taking a sauna is a national pastime in Finland, which is why there are private saunas in all our new golf suites. Some of the saunas even have views over the golf course, so you will be able to relax, unwind and enjoy watching the golf.

The new clubhouse also features a top class restaurant, professional’s shop, and locker rooms with more traditional Finnish saunas, Turkish steam saunas and Jacuzzi. The Linna Golf clubhouse spa is available for use by guests and visitors and offers health and wellness treatments, including Asian, Swedish and herbal oils massage.

While the clubhouse houses 12 of the 18 golf suites on its second and third floors, six grand apartments are located in a separate building adjacent to the clubhouse. All suites feature a living room, kitchenette, bedrooms, bathroom and sauna.

Linna Golf suites are for sale and the owners are able to use them on an unlimited basis with the option to rent them out through the Vanajanlinna Hotel, with agreed profits forwarded on to the owner.
