Hole 09 – Kotiinpaluu
means homecoming in Finnish. As the evacuees of
Kuusamo returned home at the end of 1944 they discovered their hometown almost completely destroyed. The retreating German Army had also burned several small villages and bridges nearby. Despite difficulty and penury the reconstruction work advanced little by little. Over the years and with hard work the town centre was resurrected from the ruins and life returned to normal. Today Kuusamo is a vibrant city whose economy is based on tourism and forestry.
A successful tee shot rewards the player with a possibility to approach the green on this short par 5. There is a fair chance for a birdie. However, the slopes might easily cost the player a couple of extra shots. Two bunkers guard the green.
