The Skovbanen (Forest course) at Holstebro Golfklub is one of the best championship golf courses in Denmark. There's quite a heathland feel to this predominantly pine tree-lined layout, which provides a wonderful test for your all-round game.

Heather lines several of the fairways, while grassy fescues play their part in the more open areas. A much admired northern outpost for heathland golf, which benefitted from the attentions of Robert Trent Jones Jr in the mid-2000s.
