Aalborg (Red & Yellow) - Denmark

Aalborg Golfklub,

  • +45 983 4 1476

Aalborg is the second oldest golf club in Denmark with members celebrating its centenary in 2008. Starting out with a course on the eastern city of the city, the club then moved to Sohngaardsholm in 1929 but when this site was earmarked for expansion of the local university thirty years later, the club decided to move to its present site.

One of the club’s leading players at the time, Graham Lockey, is credited with enlisting Commander John Harris to design a 9-hole layout that first opened in 1968, with a further 9 holes added eight years later.

Henrik Jacobsen updated the layout in more recent times and Chris Haspel added the Blue circuit in 2006 with the assistance of head green keeper Jesper Milthers to expand Aalborg to a 27-hole facility with three loops of nine holes.

The club hosted the European Girls Team Championships in 2010.

Had an enjoyable day at Aalborg in perfect golfing weather. The greens were quite good, true, held the line well, and with good speed. Fairways were surprisingly good considering a 3 week period with hot weather and no rain. The course itself is a pleasant parkland stroll, quite flat, but with some interesting water features adding to the enjoyment. There are 3 nine hole loops at Aalborg and I played the Red and Yellow loops which as I understand it is considered the most challenging. The red loop starts with a shortish par four, quite wide, so a nice, soft start to the round. The red 3rd, 4th and 5th are a Aalborg Golf Course - Photo by reviewersequence of holes of particular playing interest, the 3rd is a long par five, nicely bunkered off tee, and with some well positioned bunkering challenging the second shot. The 4th a nice dogleg par four, where a pond guards the inside bend and bunkers the outside, interesting choice off tee to get to a short approach position, carry the pond but the teeshot needs just the right length, a bit long or short and some well-placed trees might block your approach. The 5th is a short par four, with water on the left, and marshland on the right, from tee three birches angle in to the fairway obscuring the landing area, go over, left or right? Particular mention on the yellow loop would be the 4th and the 8th. The 4th is a short par five, reachable in two with a good drive, but at a huge risk, as the green is protected by water to the front and the approach is quite narrow. Played safely as a three shotter, the second shot is tricky as there is a large tree left of the green, so too much left or too long might require some delicate wedgework to reach the green in regulation (I hit the tree, and it bounced into the pond! what a waste of a good drive!). The 8th is a stunning par three, beautifully framed by a nice little pond in front of the tee, and trees creating a corridor to the green area some 160 meters away, quite a little gem.
