Estonian Golf & Country Club (EGCC), member of European Tour Properties chain, was opened in 2005 and is chosen to Golf World Magazine’s prestigious Top 100 European Courses. The venue comprises the 18-hole Championship Sea Course and 9-hole links-style Stone Course, both designed by professional golfer Lassi Pekka Tilander.
EGCC golf courses lie on a limestone plain by the sea between junipers, restored stone fences and protected national heritage where each hole has a story to tell. Holes built among unspoiled forests reach out to the beach and to the Jägala River. The elevation changes, oak pathways, old boulders and natural ponds have given the EGCC a chance to create a golf course like few others in the world. With its length and complexity, the Sea Course is a real challenge even for low-handicap golfers.
EGCC golf courses are located 60 km from the Manor (50 min by car).
The Manor’s reception desk is glad to set up the projection room for a cozy movie night, with a selection of more than 250 films.
