Larvik Golf Club is set on the edge of Larvik Fjord and is naturally influenced by sea breezes. The 6,868-yard course opened for play in 1993 and Swede Jan Sederholm designed it. 

666 may be the Number of the Beast according to the Book of the Revelation but in Larvik’s case it represents an equal half dozen par threes, fours and fives on the intriguing scorecard. Host to a European Challenge Tour event in 2006 and the SAS Ladies Masters in 2009, Larvik can represent a fearsome test when it is set up in its championship livery but from the forward tees the flat and links-like Larvik remains playable for the handicap golfer, except perhaps when the wind is up. 

Key to scoring well is to find the smallish greens which are generally narrow and well protected at the entrance. With plenty of water and numerous bunkers in play, Larvik is a demanding course and with its unusual 666 configuration it’s not only one of Norway’s finest tracks but also one of great variation and interest.

One of Norway's finest courses undoubtedly. Parkland with a links/seaside feel to it, not overly long but as it tend to be a bit windy, and mostly from the wrong direction, some of the holes tend to play long. I particularly like holes 5,8,9,10,13 and the 14th. Personal favourite on this course would be the 13th, quite long par 5 at 530 meters, frequently plays in to the wind, ok, you need to be a bit long off tee, however it's the 2nd shot thats challenging as it needs to be long and precise over the blind dogleg left to give you the right approach to a long green.
