Green Card courses provided by Viipurin Golf Club
Courses for beginners (individual and groups) are organized in both golf courses in English by SF PGA golf professionals. For further information, please visit:
Maintain a Good Pace
Keep your round of golf moving by being prepared to hit your shot when it is your turn. You probably don’t like waiting on other groups – don’t make other groups wait on you.
Playing time is max. 4,5 hours. The Marshall is entitled to force slow groups to move up. In the pro shop you can buy a stroke saver with accurate and clear hole-by-whole information and tips, which helps you to orientate in fairways. You can make a break for 8 minutes after first nine fairways if your round is moving with good speed.
Golf cars for two persons can be rented from Caddie Master with certain restrictions, such as weather conditions and large amount of golfers at the same time in the course.
Keep It Safe
Do not swing your club until you know that others in your group are at a safe distance. Likewise, keep your distance when others are swinging.
If your ball appears headed toward another player or another group, give them a warning by yelling out, ”Fore!”
Keep carts away from greens and hazards. The wheels on carts can damage these sensitive areas. Repair your divots in the fairway and your ball marks on the green. Always rake sand bunkers after hitting to erase your footprints and damage to the area where your ball was.
On driving ranges, golfers are allowed to use golf balls specially marked and meant for practicing in the practicing area. You can get range balls from ball machine by using chip cards (sold by Caddie Master).
The driving range is open daily from 08.00 to 20.00. Golfers are allowed to hit range balls only to the certain direction; it is not allowed to take range balls away from the range area. The driving ranges will be closed for picking up range balls from the practicing area.
On practicing greens golfers use their own balls. Please, keep the practicing safe also on practicing greens!
