Course Information

Look at pictures of Barseback’s Masters course and you think it should be higher than the mid 70s of our Continental European Top 100.

Gorgeous seaside holes, late afternoon sunshine peeping between towering pines and immaculate greens surrounded by white sand bunkers.

Well it is all of these things but the Masters course just lacks a little of the excitement that the top-50 courses provide.

It’s good, really good even, but not indisputably great.

It is enjoyable whether playing among the mature trees or on those alongside the Öresuns strait that sits between Sweden and Denmark.

The first nine holes here opened in 1969 and referred to as the Old Course, with nine more by Ture Bruce being finished the following year.

Its location has been lauded by Jack Nicklaus and its fairways walked by everyone from Annika Sörenstam to Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie to local hero Henrik Stenson.

In 1989 the Donald Steel course opens, giving Barsebäck access to two 18-hole courses – the first in the Skåne region.

In 1992, the club held its first Scandinavian Masters and created a composite course from the old and new courses. The hybrid course was well regarded, so the name Masters course was adopted.

Its location has been lauded by Jack Nicklaus and its fairways walked by everyone from Annika Sörenstam to Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie to local hero Henrik Stenson.

Thirteen European Tour events as well as the Solheim Cup of 2003 have been held on the course. Chris Bertram
