After an hour’s drive out of the capital, Copenhagen, you cross the bridge to the island of Falster where you’ll eventually find Falster Golfklub, built on land belonging to Skjørring Gods.
At Falster the fairways cut their way through the forest and you get straight into this experience when you hit your second shot at the 1st hole. From here on, the majority of holes are surrounded by forest. The first nine holes are on high land, and the last nine are lower and built on moorland. Many of the holes on the back nine are narrow, with trees lining the fairways. Additionally, there are streams running across the fairways, making club selection vital.
But golf at Falster is also a pleasant walk with nature. The surrounding lakes and forests makes the course a good place for listening to the surrounding birdlife and, if you are lucky, watching deer crossing the fairways.
Most holes are laid out on flat land, but it’s two of the more hilly holes that stick in your memory. The 8th is a par five with a blind second shot over a hill and crossing a natural fence. It is followed by a short par three that goes steeply downhill with bunkers guarding the green.
