Bro-Bålsta Golfklubb (Championship course)

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

Est. 1978

Bro-Bålsta Golfklubb (Championship course): this excellentlyl presented golf course occupies pleasantly undulating terrain in an attractive and natural forested setting. The landscape gave course architect Peter Nordwall an opportunity to craft an absorbing design to test all facets of your game.

From the many elevated tee-boxes it is important to find the right spot to provide a good line into the often large and undulating greens. Careful course management is essential to building a good score here, something not lost on the club's two most famous members ... Annika and Charlotta Sorenstam.

The front-nine arguably has the most attractive holes, while some of the back-nine journeys into a slightly more open and rural landscape. Several holes, like the par-5 1st and par-5 6th are very easy on the eye. An excellent golf course, which revels in its quiet woodland setting.
