Båstad Golfklubb (Gamla/Old course): If there is an old windmill on your right at the 1st tee, then your in the right place to play the Gamla Banan (Old Course) of Bastad (pronounced Bo'stad). This very pleasant, open parkland golf course was established in 1930, but in fact feels much more recent, with a mainly open aspect, good bunkering and several multi-tiered and undulating greens. The only water you'll encounter is in the distant Kattegat (the sea separating Sweden and Denmark), there is no water on the golf course, and with lightish rough you should be able to have a field day with the big timber and score quite well (the wind may alter that plan however). Combined with the very good Nya Banan (New course) Bastad can be thoroughly recommended for a 36-hole golf outing.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance (visitors can book 5 days ahead of day of play). Maximum handicap: per player 36; total per tee-time 100.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
Soft spikes only. Players generally walk this course.
The founder of Båstad Golfklubb was Ludvig Nobel, nephew of Alfred Nobel, the founder of the Nobel Prizes for services to humanity.
