The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

The Scandinavian Golf Club (New course): like peas in a pod, both the Old and New championship courses at The Scandinavian lay down a thorough test for your golfing skills in a wonderfully natural golfing environment. The Old may be a little more open, the New a tad more tree-lined, but their DNA is essentially the same. Both courses are rated in the country's Top 5, and both are supported by excellent practice facilities, a fully-equipped academy, and a fabulous award-winning clubhouse.

The rifle-straight short par-5 opening hole on The Scandinavian's New course provides adequate confirmation of what you may have heard from members ... this is a tighter and more tree-lined test of golf than the more open and expansive Old course. That said, the New also offers many wonderfully crafted and stylishly bunkered holes. Water is in play on about half of them, not least at the short par-5 18th, played to what is virtually an island green. There's several long and at times intimidating drives to be made. Some require good length carries, others need to navigate past threatening water hazards, not least at the very testing long par-4 6th.

Within the New course's two nine-hole loops, you'll find an excellent variety of holes, mostly tree-lined, but some in more open rolling terrain. The layout includes a wonderful collection of short holes, arguably more varied than on the Old course. Whereas the par-3 9th seriously brings water into play, the short 2nd and mid-length 13th are wonderfully photogenic par-3s ... as handsomely crafted as you'll find on the property ... or elsewhere in Denmark come to that.

MOST MEMORABLE HOLE: Amongst the more "characterful" holes, the par-4 11th takes a sharp dogleg left, before demanding an accurate approach along a gun-barrel fairway and onto the two-tier green. A little gem of a hole, provided you get your tee shot into the right position.

In and around The Scandinavian's award-winning clubhouse, which spectacularly combines several pitched roofs, you'll find many and various works of art. These have been collected by the club's owners, and are displayed to provoke thought, discussion and the opportunity to take a step back from your golf round ... good or bad as it may have been.

European Tour professional and leading Danish player Søren Kjeldsen has made The Scandinavian his golfing home. Søren turned pro in 1995, qualified for the European Tour via the Challenge Tour in 1997 and has been part of the Tour ever since. In 2016, he and Thorbjørn Olesen became the first Danish winners of the much-prized World Cup of Golf.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
Golfbaan Stippelberg: located 25 kilometres north-east of Eindhoven, this relatively new addition to championship golf in the Netherlands has fast become one of the country's "must play" courses.
