Sand Valley has been named as the 68th best golf course in Continental Europe, once again cementing our place as Poland’s best golf course, the list which selects the Top 100 premier layouts in Europe has placed us ten places higher than two years ago. We are delighted that the investments in the course & the fantastic work of our greenkeeping team during the past two seasons are being recognized.
This design by Lassi Pekka Tilander, with later input from Tony Ristola, is now a fixture in our Top 100. Some of Ristola’s greens are funky to say the least, but we love the routing and the old-style architecture of Poland’s No.1. The 2nd hole would sit among the elite of this list. – Chris Bertram, Golf World Top 100 Editor
The accolade was awarded by Golf World UK which is the original, most respected, and trusted golf course ranking guide in Europe. The competition in the category was immense so congratulations to Morfontaine (FRA) on their 1st place and all other courses making the list.
It is a great honor for Sand Valley and all those who have worked tirelessly over the last 12 years to make it such a special place. The credit of course goes to Lassi-Pekka Tilander, Tony Ristola, and Kai Hulkkonen for their vision that was clearly ahead of its time. Also, this is a very proud day for Polish golf where we will continue to be at the forefront in spreading the word that Polish Dream Golf really does exist – said Antti Pohjonen CEO of Sand Valley.
