The course was designed by David Jones and is a challenging GEO-certified 18 hole par 72, measuring to 5797 metres from the yellow tee. Hirsala Golf was opened in 2007 and is situated in Jorvas, 29 km west of Helsinki city centre (30 mins by car).
In Golf Digest’s 2009 course ranking Hirsala was listed among the 10 best golf courses in Finland and in 2011 and 2015 we had the honor of hosting Finnish Open, one of the biggest international competitions held in Finland. In 2007 the magazine Golf Digest rewarded our caddiemaster service as the best in Finland.
We have a 250m driving range and a practice area including a putting/chipping green and a bunker. Golf lessons and green card courses are provided by our experienced PGA Pro Ville Kalliala (tel. +358400467466).
David Jones’ comments on Hirsala: "When I first saw Hirsala I felt it would be a wonderful challenge to fit a golf course into such a classic Finnish landscape. "The course is now complete, and I am delighted with the result. We have preserved almost all of the features which made this area so beautiful, and have created a natural and fair course which is built to the most modern of standards, but still respects the tradition of golf. Courage will be rewarded, but the course can also be played with caution… In this way everyone will enjoy it… which is the true spirit of The Game.” "I believe as it matures Hirsala will be one of the great courses of Finland.”
