The opening of the Stadium course at Bro Hof Slott Golf Club was subject to intense coverage in the golfing press. The Castle course however seemed to slip below the radar when it opened in 2009.

We think the members quietly count their lucky stars as they get to keep the Castle as their little secret. What luxury to have such an interesting counterpoint to the splendid Stadium course at your home club. The Stadium course might be the tougher of the two with its massive length and demanding design, but the Castle course is no pushover. It’s a thorough challenge for any player.

The Castle course is a mix of forest and open country with a distinct heathland feel. It’s visually pleasing as it rolls along in gentle swells with crisp green fairways surrounded by wavy golden fesque. Unusually for the Nordic region, large waste areas have been incorporated in the design. Some might argue that this is unnatural, but it works well as the waste areas are festooned with humps of grass similar to those found on grazing land in the Nordics – interesting visually, but probably not appreciated should your shot find one of them.

A common statement from members and visitors alike is that the Castle course is more fun to play than the Stadium and although the Stadium is a superb challenge and very enjoyable to play, we can relate to the statement. As a former tour player said, "on the Stadium I think par, on the Castle I can go for birdie".

If you visit Bro Hof Slott Golf Club make sure that you leave room for both the Stadium course and the Castle course on your itinerary, you will not be disappointed.

Av. Reviewers Score:
Description: 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. Rating: 5 out of 6 Reviews: 2

i wasnt expecting much as we were there to play the stadium course, but how wrong i was.. this is a great course and i would say as enjoyable as the big brother course. We played it off the back tees but it was a manageable 6700yds, you need to play it twice though as some lines are not obvious, and there are some blind shots. It has more of a tighter feel than the stadium, which i actually prefer, so maybe be biased of course. The opening hole is excellent par 5 late dog leg going uphill to a raised green, it sets the scene perfectly for what you have in store. I would say a typical RTJ course, lots of water and risk reward but also very easy on the eye, take your camera! See my review of the stadium course for some negatives on the site in general, but overall a great experience i would gladly go back.

A very good course in excellent condition, as you would expect from the reputation of this place. The best is that it can be yours - all yours - for a lot less than most people expect that it costs (we paid 700 SEK). Played it for the first time in early June - supposed to be peak of the golfing season in Stockholm - and it was empty! I counted to less than 10 booked players all day so we effectively had the course to ourselves and could play at our own pace, a luxury you can normally forget on most highly ranked courses!
