Sweden

Sweden conjures up images of blonde, gorgeous people, long summer days and enduring winter nights. Of Stockholm, the country’s capital and one of the world’s most beautiful cities, of Swedish massages and, naturally, but not necessarily in the same breath, Jesper Parnevik’s wacky dress style. And we mustn’t forget Annika Sörenstam, perhaps the greatest lady golfer of all time. Of course, the nation's current golfing hero is none other than Henrik Stenson, following his brilliant victory in the 2016 Open at Royal Troon when he held off an incredibly strong challenge from Phil Mickelson to claim his first Major title.

It used to be expensive for foreigners to visit Sweden, but since the devaluation of the Swedish crown, things have become more affordable. With around 500 golf courses serving more than half a million affiliated golf club members, there’s plenty of great golf to choose from. If you’ve got the stamina you could play more than four rounds during the long warm summer days. If that has not tempted you, we should close by saying that Sweden has more golf courses in Europe’s Top 100 than all other Scandinavian countries combined. So what are you waiting for?

Halmstad (Norra)

3rd Sweden Ranking

Sweden has some fantastic golf courses and the Norra (North) course at Halmstad Golfklubb is one of them. It’s a surreal setting where you can smell the salty sea air and you can hear the sea, but you can’t see it.

Ullna

5th Sweden Ranking

"Water, water everywhere" could easily be the slogan of Ullna Golf Club where there are many holes set hard beside Lake Ullna (which doubles up in the winter as a huge skating rink).

PGA of Sweden National (Lakes)

8th Sweden Ranking

The number of bunkers on the Lakes course averages four per hole, the same as the Links course, but the traps on the Lakes occupy an area three times that of the other course at the PGA of Sweden National.

PGA of Sweden National (Links)

It’s reckoned the Swedish PGA complex just outside Malmö took over ten years of planning and construction before the new 18-hole PGA National Links course emerged in the summer of 2009.

Bro Hof Slott (Castle)

10th Sweden Ranking

Robert Trent Jones Jnr designed the Castle course at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club and it opened for play in 2009. It’s kept from the limelight by the stellar Stadium course, but the Castle should also be sampled when visiting Bro.
