Great Northern


4+ (4 gold): one of our top-rated 4-star courses, worthy of 4½ stars.
   Great Northern Est. 2017

Where2Golf says: 

Great Northern, one of the newest golf courses in Denmark and the first by Nicklaus Design, is also one of the country's best and most challenging layouts. Built with top level tournament play in mind, this big dimension parkland course exudes an open and linksy character, albeit with plenty of water hazards in the mix.

As with most Nicklaus designs, an abundance of stylish bunkering threatens should you stray too far from the invitingly wide fairways and good-sized putting surfaces. But it's probably the water hazards that will get your full attention. They come in the form of large fairway hugging ponds (at 5, 6 and 18), meandering streams (at 16), fronting greens (at the par-3 9th and 17th), cascading past the green (at 15), or creating an island green (at the very demanding par-5 18).

Especially from the higher elevations of the west side of the course, you'll enjoy many panoramic vistas out onto the Great Belt Strait, a channel that divides the Danish islands of Zealand and Funen. Straddling the strait are the impressive structures of the "Great Belt Bridge". The layout's lower sections are where you'll find most of the wetland features and intimidating water hazards.
