Golf Inc. Magazine recently reported that ground was broken on a golf course designed by Tim Nugent, ASGCA, located in Helsinki, Finland. The course is Nugent’s first overseas project.

According to the article, Nugent designed the 6,600-yard course at Tapiola Golf Club but is also personally shaping it. Nugent told Golf Course Architecture magazine, “I hope Tapiola will be a good example of the direction new courses should be headed—fun and playable for everyone, but with just enough to keep good golfers interested.”

Tapiola Golf Club is taking shape on a 135-acre, city-owned landfill in Espoo and is expected to open in the summer of 2012.
