The charming little Danish settlement of Stege lies on the Zealand island of Møn and the local golf course can be found on the shores of Stege Nor, a lake that connects to the sea beside the town.
Møn Golf Club was formed in 1992 and within a couple of years a course was available for play, laid out on wooded, hilly terrain to the east of Stege. The opening eight fairways and home hole are set out on the north side of the lake with the remaining holes on the other side.
Water only comes into play at two holes on the card, the par four 10th and par three 11th, which are played around a smaller expanse of water away from the lake. Holes 15 to 17 are routed along the edge of Stege Nor but sufficiently far away to avoid aquatic contact between tee and green.
There are five par threes on the scorecard and they are all “proper” short holes (varying in length from 135 to 165 yards) that don’t require the sort of monster tee shot favoured by so many modern designers.
The course is open all year round but a particularly good time to visit might be during the annual “Stege Festival” which takes place every Tuesday in July and the first Tuesday in August.
