Review for Barsebäck (Masters)

Reviewer Score:


Will you like Barsebäck?

I think it very much depends on what kind of golf you prefer. Most Swedish golfers are brought up on parkland courses, or woodland courses which play as parkland rather than heathland. Most pro golf tournaments are also played on parkland courses, so many tour pros tend to prefer this kind of target golf, where they feel more in control than on windswept links or heathland courses where a bogey is just a poor bounce away.

However, for those of us who love nothing better than firm and fast turf, Barsebäck tends to disappoint as it does not really offer the heathland/links golf the site looks capable of. Therefore, if you plan your first outing to the region and your golfing taste is close to mine, put Falsterbo and PGA Links on top of your list instead.

All that said, it is a very capable championship layout which often is in very good condition. If you watch the European Tour regularly you may want to see to how the pros tackle the course 1-4 June, 2017, when the Nordea Scandinavian Masters comes to Henrik Stenson’s home course.
