Simon's Golf Club

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1993

Simon's Golf Club is home to one of Denmark's top-rated championship courses, and the first one in the country to stage a European Tour event. Occupying predominantly open rolling parkland, the 27-hole layout comprises the original A and B nines, with the also Hawtree-designed C-nine having been added 14 years after the original 18-holes.

Water doesn't threaten too often on the A and B nine-hole loops, but does put in a few telling appearances on the C-nine. All three nines benefit from attractive bunkering and typically large undulating greens.

The installation of a top-quality drainage system allows the course to be played year-round, including after prolonged periods of rain. This system also allow play to continue on the regular tees and greens in the winter months, unless snow, frost or freezing rain are present ... not entirely unheard of in Denmark! One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
