Santa Claus Golf is a beautiful and interesting golf course with northern characters, just a few minutes from the city center.

The summer golf season starts in May and continues until the beginning of October.
Experience golf like never before at the 9-hole winter golf course of Santa Claus Golf. In winter there are no greens but whites, trolleys are changed in to sledges and white golf balls in to bright orange ones. On the snowy fairways some of the whites are situated on the frozen lakes of the course. One also has to note the rules of snow golf that for example limit the number of the clubs to max 3 irons and a putter. The game is familiar, but the experience totally new!
