Laesø is the largest island in the area of Kattegat off the Jutland peninsula and a ferry service operates the 12-mile route between Frederiskavn on the Danish mainland and the port of Vesterø Havn.

Laeso, along with the island of Anholt, is sometimes referred to as “the Danish sand belt,” but the terrain is more lichen heath than desert sand owing to the deforestation that took place many years ago.

Course architect Henrik Jacobsen laid out the 18-hole course on the island of Samsø just three years before he created Laeso Seaside so his Danish design skills had been finely honed before tackling the crisp, springy turf here.

The course lies to the north east of the island – where half timbered houses thatched with seawood lie along the coast – and holes are routed on either side of the road that leads to the clubhouse (3 to 8, 16 and 17 to the south).

Tree-lined fairways are generally tight and many of them (the 7th in particular) are doglegged with small inland lakes to negotiate so many golfers keep the driver in the bag when playing at Laesø.

Læsø is an interesting course with quite a few good holes, but, you need to be able to pull off a long fade off tee to gain reward. Laeso Seaside Golf Course - Photo by reviewerThere are 10 doglegged holes on the course, and 8 of them favour a fade. Off tee one need to consider club selection quite carefully as there are water in play on 11 of the holes, and one need to consider the roll quite carefully to avoid a runout into trees or getting stymied on the wrong side of the fairways for your approach shot. Læsø is located on the seaside on lovely sandy soil, and the few, but well placed potbunkers adds to the linksy feel of the course. Walking the course is a pleasure for the eye as it is laid out in a tranquil seaside forest, sadly the sea is only part of the views on three of the holes, but, then again, maybe that's actually a benefit as the seaside forest offer some protection from the ever present wind.
