At the Virttaankangas of Alastaro, real golf is played on sand bottomed lawn. Sand bottomed lawns are appreciated for their play qualities; as the course is built above sand the ball bounces and rolls as it should do in all kinds of weather conditions.
The course has been designed by respected architect (DA SAFA) Kosti Kuronen, who invested in the quality and diversity of the course. The course is suitable for both Sunday players and pros.

The greens of Alastaro are big and in very good shape. Most of them have been formed to have two levels, at the back nine, and some are even three leveled.

Behind the fairway 15, at the bottom of the deep sinkhole the Kankaanjärvi lake can be seen through the woods. The lake’s surface is 20 metres lower than the fake ponds’ in front of the club house.
