An hour’s drive west of Stockholm, the 27-hole Frösåker Golf and Country Club is a safe haven from the hustle and bustle of the busy Swedish metropolis. Here you will find two modern courses (the 18-hole Stora and the 9-hole par three Links) laid out in idyllic surroundings, adjacent to Frösåker nature reserve.

Opened in 1987, the Stora course is situated on the northern shore of lovely Lake Mälaren and, because of its location on low-lying land so close to the lake, small ponds come into play at more than half the holes on both the front and back nine.

Two of the most memorable holes on the Stora's outward half are the par five 1st and 8th holes. They each measure 565 yards and are double doglegged, bending first to the right and then left with water threatening the drive on the left of the fairway at both holes.

Hole 17 is stroke index 1 on the scorecard and for good reason. With out of bounds down the left off the tee, the hole kinks after around 265 yards, leaving an approach of approximately 145 yards along a tree-lined section of fairway to a pulpit green set into the side of a raised area of ground. This potential card-wrecker is a really tough hole to tackle so late in a round.

What a fantastic course! I have played the majority of 'top 20' courses in Sweden and this is defintely on my top 5 list. So underratted! Particurarly for low handicaped golfers, the course is elegantly designed and in great condition. Greenfee is more than reasonable! I will be back.

Although somewhat flat for my taste from time to time, the good layout, well conditioned fairways, greens and tees, beautiful holes close to lake Mälaren and the fact that I made an eagle on the par four 18th compensated well enough to make me enjoy this golf course a lot. Will definitely be back sometime in the future.

Great views over Lake Malaren, thanks to which the wind is often a factor. Pleasant off the regular tees, difficult off the back tees. Excellent practice facilities with a newly created "links" course to complement the main course (great conversion of an empty field!), nice club-house in a barn. Highly recommended as an excursion for Stockholm-based golfers, lots of value for money (500 SEK), at least in the drier parts of the season.What could be better? The perfectionist would argue that the "wrong" grass is taking over on the greens, slowing them down and that the revetted bunkering style is not consistently applied. Finally, most of us think water is pretty to look at, not everyone enjoys lots of it in the line of play and on the back nine you get that here, so keep you irons sharp and your yardages too!

An average course that has been renovated and improved over the last years and now has a high standard and is quite challenging. However, the course don't cope with rain that it could be plenty of any time of the year. Nice restaurant and club.
