Estonian Golf & Country Club has hosted a unique tournament at their Stone Course last Saturday which attracted some of the best long drivers’ in the game of golf. So we had Dewald Lubbe from RSA and the current Guinness Record holder Maurice Allen from USA with us whos ball was flying with the record speed of 339,56 km/h back in 2012 already …

Still it wasn’t enough to take the 2nd leg of LDET as Dewald Lubbe from South Africa was fighting hard for the second win of his career. Although Allen who had just taken the trophy from Sweden week ago and holding the personal record of 414m long drive, Lubbe got it by a 359.4m  drive only to claim the 1st prize. Whats more, the guy was out there in his red short trousers with some +5c and jumped to the pond of the first green for the celebrations :)

The amateur winner was  Ville Kivini from Finland and by seniors Marko Mustonen also from Finland. The only 1st prize which remained in Estonia was claimed by our lady golfer Anete-Liis Adul. We also had two of our pros Torel Neider and Priit Jalasto out there to cheer the growd ; ) Photos were taken by Estonian Golf Blog & Urmas Kamdron. The third leg of Long Drivers European Tour will be held at Golf Arboretum in Slovenia from 12-13 June.

Autumn is a great time for nightgolf ! Photo by Priit Jalasto at Tallinn GC.

Our golfing season is nearly over now. All tournaments are done and afterparties will be followed. It has been a great year in Estonian Golf life. We had the honors to host the Rotary 37th European Tournament and also the Omega Mission Hills World Cup European Qualifiers.

As in total we got 8 courses , 42 tournaments and  2088 active golfers in Estonia today and these numbers are growing. Good news is also that Golf will be the Olympic sport at Rio 2016 , where Estonian Golf Team will compete also.

But now as the weather is still quite nice and mild, you can well enjoy a great round of  autumn golf at most of our courses. Daytime temperatures are around 12c, which keeps your mind clear and gives you nice red cheek on the top of that  :))
