Ljunghusens Golf Club dates back to 1932 and there are 27 holes to be sampled here on this unique maritime heath of the Falsterbo Peninsula. The main course comprises of holes 1-18 (par 35 out and par 37 back) and the third nine is the shortest loop, rated as a par 35.
The book True Links by George Peper and Malcolm Campbell has this to say about the course: “A ten-minute drive from Falsterbo is the 27-hole facility at Ljunghusen, which might best be described as a heathland links - in fact, Ljunghusen means ‘house of heather’.
There aren't many trees, but large, dense clumps of heather and crowberry come frequently into play, especially on the front two nines. It is the third nine that provides the true links experience, on flat, sand-based land with the last six holes running along the Baltic.”
The club has held a number of national and international championships like the PLM Open in 1984 and 1987, the Telia Tour Grand Prix on the Challenge Tour from 1996 to 2004 and the European Men’s Team Championships in 2001, when Luke Donald set the course record with a score of 63.
The wind can play a major part in proceedings here as it blows in off the Baltic and with a total of 80 bunkers, 12 water hazards and large areas of heather on either side of many holes, Ljunghusen can be a very challenging course and a tough one on which to play to handicap.
