There are some fine courses in the Stavanger area, but Stavanger is undoubtedly the finest. The location is quite special, beside lake Stokkavann and close to the city centre, but still quiet and tranquil. Walking the fairways lined with pine and fir and watching the squirrels go about with their daily chores should calm even the most highly strung player. The course itself is a fine challenge for the precise hitter, not particularly long but quite demanding in terms of placement, on many of the holes the ability to shape the ball should give an advantage in the match, should you find yourself off the fairway the rough is kept short, so you should find your ball quickly, but, don’t be surprised if you find yourself stymied behind a tree and have to bring out some of that recovery magic. On those occasions I have had to play Stavanger the condition has always been immaculate. If you fancy a fine test of your shotmaking abilities, Stavanger is the course for you.
