Bro-Bålsta Golfklubb (Championship course): Most of this very well presented golf course occupies undulating terrain in an attractive and natural forested setting, giving the opportunity for course architect Peter Nordwall 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 - to score well good course management is essential. The front nine, in our opinion, has the most attractive holes with some of the back-nine going into a slightly more open and rural landscape. Overall, all the holes are well-designed and some, like the par-5 1st or the par-5 6th are glorious to the eye. An excellent golf course, within a quiet woodland setting - no wonder the young Sorenstam's were inspired to achieve greatness.

Annika won the women's championship in 1985, '87, '88 and '89, with Charlotta winning in 1986 and '92. Annika's mother Gunilla won the championship in 1990. The well known Swedish golf course architect, Peter Nordwall, who designed Bro-Balsta, won the Bro-Balsta men's club championship in 1984, '85 and '87. In the clubhouse there is a room displaying many items of Sorenstam memorabilia.
