Härkälinna Disc Golf (Frisbee)
golf course has received a lot of praise both for variety of terrain
and length of the course (21 disc pole holes). Even the most advanced
disc golfers can get a thrill with the challenges on offer. The disc
pole holes 1-3 and 16-21 are suitable for beginners also, as the terrain
is a combination of grassland and meadow. There is also a practice net
for throws and warm up. In the forest, by the pole hole 10, you can
enjoy a well-deserved break in the BBQ hut.
Disc golf is much like traditional golf, except that instead of a ball a disc (resembling a frisbee) is used and instead of aiming at a hole, baskets are the targets. Please ask for the disc golf rules for recreational play from the owner.
You can either rent discs, use your own or purchase discs from thew owner (Finnish Westside brand).
Welcome to play and to enjoy the nature!
The Grassland “Game Arena”
Between the wooden castle and the lake there is a 2,5 hectare meadow in which there are medieval style equipment and constructions for competitions, that you can use with proper instructions. There is for example a Trebuchet-catapult, war of tugs, knives and axes to throw and other stuff for medieval games. Please contact the owner for specially arranged games, just for you and your party (at a fee).
