Course Information

This is the premier course at this easy-to-like modern Swedish resort on the outskirts of Malmo.

There is not too much to choose between the Links and Lakes, but we are confident it is the Links that has a bit more quality and definitely a bit more character.

Both were designed by Kyle Phillips and you would certainly play both when you came to play the Links, and would also be stay toon the neat on-site hotel whose first floor bedrooms offer a splendid view of the courses, with the Links’ undulating fairways looking temptingly good when bathed in late afternoon sunshine.

There are mature trees around the perimeter of the course but otherwise the Links is wide open, it’s fairways and its challenge defined by impressively shaped ridges.

Phillips is a master and getting the most from modest sites – see Penha Longha for further details – and the construction was clearly top quality because the sand-capping has left well-drained playing areas that get enjoyably dusty in summer and firm in Autumn.

There are mature trees around the perimeter of the course but otherwise the Links is wide open, it’s fairways and its challenge defined by impressively shaped ridges.

A ditch that meanders across the priority in a Y shape crosses or runs parallel to seven holes across both nines.

The front nine is notably distinctive and high class with a myriad interesting green complexes and strategic holes.

There are some blow-out highs as well as cerebral tests, mainly via downhill par 3s that include a classic 30-yard long Biarritz green at the 7th.

The Links ends on a memorable par 4 tiger classic undulating terrain with the chance of a fine finish under the eyes of the hotel/clubhouse guests.
