Nordvestjysk is an unusual golf course, firstly it's situated in a nature reserve and dune plantation area, secondly it is quite hilly, which most would consider a bit unusual for Denmark. Both added to the enjoyment of my round at Nordvestjysk. Got my course guide and perusing the overview told me that this would be a round on some interesting terrain, the front nine is more or less a fairly common out-in routing, and the back nine a huge circle! On the front nine, the 3rd offer a splendid
exercise in elevation change, a short par five, but it plays uphill all the way, it looked like an easy par on the card, but it wasn't, but the nice view from the green offered some consolation. The 5th, a long par four with the tee elevated about 15 meters above the narrow fairway, quite tense, but somehow I got some friendly bounces and ended up with a regulation par. The highlight of the round was undoubtedly the 8th, a short par three, just 134 meters, but, it plays uphill over a gully to a quite lumpy green which is located at one of the highest points of the course, so most likely some influence of the wind needs to be included in the considerations, left of the green is a steep hill, and right some of the 8 meter tall rough, simply a cracking par three. On the back nine, the 10th and 12th offer variations of the same theme, well positioned specimen trees offering interesting lines of play for the timid. The 15th must be the tightest tee shot on the course, but at 220 meters the fairway falls away and offer tempting roll to a wedge-flick into the green. The course closes with a beautifully framed short downhill par three. Walking of the green I had to admit that it had been sheer fun and an interesting challenge.
