Where2Golf says: 

The Silkeborg course at Silkeborg Ry Golfklub is one of the best championship golf courses in Denmark. This 27-hole tree-lined parkland layout, comprising the original West and South nines, and newer East-nine, provides a wonderful test for your all-round game, with many attractive, skilfully crafted and challenging holes to enjoy. A must play if you are in the area. Also owned and managed by the club is the Kildebjerg Ry course, which is located 17 km south-east of its grander sibling, just outside the town of Ry.

Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
