Tommy Nordström is credited with the layout of the modern day Borre course in 1991 but his design underwent a major makeover in 2005 when nine new holes were added to form “New Borre” with nine holes of the original course becoming “Gamle Back-Nine” – the Old Back Nine course.

The new 6,891-yard par 72 course is set in a gently undulating park and forest landscape around the Semb Manor House beside Lake Borre – and the halfway house at the 10th tee is a great place to stop and take in all the beautiful surrounding scenery.

There’s a fine stretch of par four holes from the 5th to the 7th beside the lake. Hole 5 “Fergemannen” plays from an elevated tee with water threatening the drive on the left all the way to an island green with a very narrow entrance. Hole 6 “Borrevannet” only measures 325 yards and has water 60 yards in front of the green to catch any underclubbed approach shots. Hole 7 “Sandodden” is a slight right dog leg to a raised green with a protecting bunker on the front right hand side.

Very nice parkland course. The club added 9 new holes to the course in 2005 and changed the routing. Well maintained and with excellent facilities, clubhouse, practice and on the course. Has hosted several European eventsOne of my favourite courses, however I have to admit that I miss the old routing a bit, I havent quite gotten the hang of the new holes, and thought the old backnine (now a full size 9 holer) was quite nice, liked the contrast between the parkland front 9 and the woodland back 9. Notable holes. 2, 3, 5, 9, 12,14,15 and 18. Personal fave is hole 15, par 4 263 meters, not particularly difficult, but it simply is a beautiful hole.
