The Lilla Vik course, or Little Bay in English, is a delightful parkland layout where you can see and taste the Baltic Sea. With for holes set on high ground above the coastline this is the seaside gem at Österlens Golf Club. 

Österlens Golfklubb was established in 1945, when members played on a 6-hole course that was expanded to a 9-hole layout six years later. The 18-hole Lilla Vik course didn’t appear until the late 1970s when architect Tommy Nordström was asked to double the size of the old track.

In 2012, Pierre Fulke began a course renovation programme which completed in 2014, improving Lilla Vik beyond recognition.

Österlen, the eastern part of Skåne is a favourite vacation region for many Swedes. The golfers among them also seem to have a long-standing love affair with Lilla Vik. I can understand; the course has nice views over the Baltic, although without being a links course. It is not overly long either and consequently demands more of your golfing brain than your driving muscles, especially after the recent renovations by Pierre Fulke and Adam Mednick (disclaimer: I played the course before). Another great plus in my book is that you can stay at the course. There are few things that inspire to “just another round” like waking up to birdsong mixed with the soft sound of balls hit from the driving range!
