Helsingør Golf Club was founded in 1927 and is one of Denmark’s oldest courses. It enjoys a wonderful parkland setting and is highly regarded by members and visitors.
Many trees flank the narrow fairways, making accuracy at Helsingor the order of the day. Forty bunkers, lakes and streams provide for interest, variation and excitement during a round in this lovely parkland setting.
Anders Amilion originally laid out the course at Helsingør, which was later modified in the 1960s by Commander John Harris and more recently by former European Tour player Anders Sørensen, who left his mark by refashioning the 13th hole.
In 2006, Helsingør hosted the Scandinavian Senior Open, where a number of former Ryder Cup players featured at the top of the leaderboard, but it was Katsuyoshi Tomori from Japan who came through to claim the title. Professional golf returned to Helsingør in 2007 in the shape of the Ladies European Tour Nykredit Masters which was won by Englishwoman, Lisa Hall.
Just really pleasant. A parkland members course on the northern part of Zealand about an hour from Copenhagen where everything seemed very nice but not forced or over the top.
The course was interesting but natural and was routed through mature forest so used trees creatively, including as 'vertical bunkers', requiring thought about how best to approach greens . Very lush but not overwatered and probably near perfect condition for the area and time of year. Although it's definitely a parkland course, there was a hint of the coastal nature in the natural undulations of the site and the apparent sandy base.
The understated clubhouse was definitely a lovely place to sit with a drink in the late afternoon sunshine after the round and looked out beside a number of the holes. As I said, very pleasant.
