The original course at Hillerød Golf Club was a modest affair when inaugurated in 1966, comprising of only six holes though within ten years, it had been extended to a full 18-hole layout. It is not the longest of layouts by modern standards – measuring only 5,780 yards with a par of 70 – but it does have the luxury of a complementary 6-hole par three course for those developing their game.
Situated in North Zeeland, around 25 miles from Copenhagen, the Hillerød course is a very pleasant combination of gently undulating parkland and woodland golf, laid out on either side of a railway line. The first four holes are tackled before crossing the tracks to play holes 5 to 12 then returning to complete the round on the east side of the line.
With length off the tee not an issue here, keeping the ball out of the trees and in play will help develop a good score. Many feel that the layout is suited to those who can fade the ball as six of the eight doglegged holes bend to the right. The par four 2nd hole and short par three 17th are feature holes on the card, played alongside the Torkeris Lake.
