Designed by architect Line Mortensen, the seaside course at Hans Christian Andersen Golf Club, which was known as Gyldensteen until 2013, lies close to the small market town of Bogense, where its fairways are set out on sandy soiled terrain near the marina and the beach.
Highlight holes on the front nine include the 342-metre par four 3rd and the 505-metre par five 9th whilst the very long (560-metre) 7th is regarded as the toughest hole on the outward half. On the back nine, golfers who can fade their shots are at a distinct advantage as four of the holes (12 to 14 and 17) dogleg right off the tee.Measuring 3,138 metres, the inward half is configured somewhat unconventionally as it features three par threes, three par fours and three par fives. Another unusual aspect to the course is that it end in front of the clubhouse with one the short par three holes, allowing golfers a decent chance of a birdie and a fairy tale finish!
H.C. Andersen is a well laid out course, it is a course that requires accuracy off the tee. there are beautiful views from many of the holes on the course and it is a great layout, the maintenance though is a little below par, especially the greens were in poor conditions in early June.
