100 years old Royal Minigolf course in Finland


Finland 01 Apr 2012 at 11:05 | Published by: Hans | Views: 6579 | News search

100 years old Royal Minigolf course in Finland In the history books of Minigolf its usually said that the first courses where built in 1912 in London UK. Now it seems like there can be that Minigolf was played also in east Finland by no other than a Russian Tsar a Swedish King and an Emperor of Germany as long back as 1912.

The history of golf (and Minigolf) in Finland was started by noble holiday makers in Virolahti already 100 years ago, when The Grand Duke of Finland and Emperor of Russia, His Royal Highness Nikolai II Romanov ordered a small putting and chipping area to be built for his royal family and noble friends.

The Emperor built golf and tennis courses on the mainland Virolahti for their private "amusement park" in 1912. One of the features in this "amusement park" was this putting and chipping area that was actually designed quite like a minigolf course. The visitors of the Grand Duke and Emperor during his summer vacations included Emperor of Germany, Wilhelm II Hohenzollern, and the King of Sweden, Gustav V Bernadotte.
