Hjarbæk Fjord Golf Club is located on the eastern side of the crescent-shaped fjord from which the club takes its name. With 27 holes, configured in three 9-hole loops named North, South and West, this is a popular golfing facility that comes highly regarded by many Danish golfers.
Even the Danish tourist board sing Hjarbæk Fjord’s praises, stating that the course “more or less built itself”. That may well be true, because we’re not sure from which architect’s drawing board Hjarbaek Fjord was created, but we do know that the North and South loops represent the sternest challenge.The Nord (North) and Syd (South) nines are routed around the perimeter of the property with the West loop sitting more or less in the middle. The North starts with a par five where out of bounds lurks to the right. When the wind blows hard from the west toward the OOB this opening hole scares most golfers. The par five 3rd plays straight toward the fjord where the green sits on a plateau close to the water’s edge. This is a genuinely challenging three shotter and the hardest hole on the scorecard.
