Gustav

Love links golf, have played 80+ of the Top 100 Links Courses of Britain & Ireland, but I enjoy almost any course which facilitates the ground game. Also love playing without having to wait and try to choose courses and tee-off times to achieve this.

Ullna 19/09/2015

5th Sweden Ranking 58th Continental Europe Ranking
There are two ways to write about Ullna. You can either describe how it was once the uncontested no. 1 in Stockholm and how the creation of Bro Hof left it far behind. Yo...
