Situated just north east of Oslo, Hauger’s 18-hole golf course is yet another modern classic from the drawing board of Jeremy Turner, the golf architect with an ever-increasing portfolio of first class Scandinavian courses.

Turner laid out Hauger in 1988 on rolling parkland, incorporating some exciting elevation changes into the design. Comparatively tight initially, with trees lining the fairways of the opening few holes, the course then opens out over the gently undulating terrain for the remainder of the round. Ponds come into play at a handful of holes but not to an overbearing extent.

Thrilling elevated tee shots at the par four 1st and par three 5th holes are highlights on the front nine – the opening drive is across a small pond to a fairway which kinks right to a green with four guarding bunkers whilst the short hole on 5 has a pond in front and sand to the left for added protection.

On the inward half, the hardest hole is the very long par four 13th – all of 480 yards – which plays uphill all the way from tee to green. The drive must be threaded between a large grass bank on the left and trees on the right of the fairway before approaching the elevated green. Two mighty blows are required here to have any chance of par!

It’s says «rolling parkland» in the article above, I would probably describe it as “fairly hilly in places”, not necessarily bad as it leaves some interesting shots, and some healthy exercise. There are a number of fun holes to be experienced at Hauger. The short par four 2nd hole, a dogleg with a pretty little pond guarding the inside, for the long hitters it’s straight over the water and then a half wedge to the green to set up a birdie chance, however for the more cautious a tee shot away from the water should still only leave a short iron to the green. Then the 7th, a 190 meter long par three, nice little pond to the front of the green which is some 20 meters below the tee, always an interesting exercise of uncertainty when it comes to picking the right club, particularly in windy conditions. And then the monster 430 meter par four 13th, a proper belt is required, and if the drive is not quite perfect there are some bunkers guarding the front of the green, and on one side of the green it slopes down towards a scenic little brook, I’ve learned my lesson, good drive, go for it, not so great drive, lay up! Hauger is well bunkered, and offer in my opinion good variation of shots, so a good experience with some good exercise thrown in.
