The 18 hole golf course in Himos has gained praises for its beauty and facilities since the opening of 2013. Although the course is still relatively young in “golf course years” summer grows it to its future success.
The Himos-Patalahti Golf course (HPG) has been designed and landscaped for the surrounding terrain by taking an advantage of the existing natural height differences. The values of nature have been honoured when sculpturing the course. The natural wetlands of the site have been utilized and the watering system uses the lake water for the growing lawn. Total area includes 118 hectares, of which the course is 64 ha.
The landscape around the course is beautiful around the year. In the summertime the green rolling hills with rugged ski-slopes in the background make it hard to believe that you’re still in Central Finland.
