It is a beautiful day today:
Play a game at Ozo Golf Course in Riga in the morning. Then there’s 320 km / 4 h 30 min of driving ahead. And you have two must-see sites en-route and this is the magnificent Rundale Palace (1 hr drive from Riga) and the Hill of Crosses (after driving another hour). After the two you will reach Klaipeda in 2+ hours.
Day 3. Golf in Klaipeda, afternoon on the Curonian Spit
First go to the National Golf Course for a game. And you have the whole afternoon to spend on the Curonian Spit, a World Heritage-listed narrow sandy peninsular which is worth every minute there. In fact this detour is mainly dedicated to it.
Day 4. Golfing at Capitals, reaching Vilnius
After driving for about 3 hours you will reach Capitals Golf Course, play a game there. Later drive to Trakai (30 min) to have a meal and spend some relaxing time admiring the lakes and an iconic red-brick castle. Then continue to Vilnius (30 min) for the night.
Day 5. Golf Vilnius
20-30 min drive to a golf course. Then enjoy the rest of the day in the beautiful baroque Old Town of Vilnius.
Day 6. Departure home
So this was the original plan. Fancy more?
Day 1. Arrival in Vilnius
Arrival in Vilnius, a car, a room, a beer.
Day 2. Golf Vilnius
Start with a 30-min driving to a golf course and play a game there. Our suggestion is that you dedicate the rest of the day to see Vilnius, maybe also Trakai.
Day 3. Golfing at Capitals, reaching Klaipeda
Drive Capitals Golf (under 1 hr), then proceed to Klaipeda in western Lithuania, which is your base for the next day.
Day 4. Golf in Klaipeda, afternoon on the Curonian Spit
Drive to National Golf (15 min) for the morning game. Then use the afternoon to explore the Curonian Spit – it is worth every minute there.
Day 5. Driving to Riga
There’s 320 km and 4+ hrs of driving today. Probably you could postpone the last game for tomorrow and rather have some cultural stops on the way to Riga. Hill of Crosses and Rundale Palace are the most obvious.
Day 6. Departure home
There’s one more game today before you leave to the airport and this is it as originally planned. Alterations are possible, no doubt.
