Where2Golf says: 

Falsterbo Golfklubb: here at the southern end of the Falsterbo Peninsula you'll find the Oresund strait on one side of you, and the Baltic Sea stretching out on the other. You'll also find one of continental Europe's true links golf courses. Falsterbo occupies a strip of relatively flat sandy links land, pure links indeed, but not endowed with towering sand dunes or energetically rolling terrain.

Tee it up at Falsterbo, and there's no doubting you're at the seaside. There's a large lighthouse (dating from 1795) in the centre of the golf course, small lakes and reed beds flanking several holes, and sea views in abundance. The best of those views come on the back-nine, culminating at the par-4 17th tee, which sits farthest out on the tip of the peninsula.

Although quite flat, Falsterbo's layout keeps you thoroughly absorbed and revelling in links golf from start to finish. Characterised by superb greens, and dotted with a rash of revetted pot bunkers, the layout also retains its rustic qualities ... as all great links courses do. Make no mistake, this is one of Sweden's golfing crown jewels ........ worthy of its place on any list of great links courses.

Did you know?

Falsterbo Golf Club was formed in 1909 on the initiative of keen golfer Erik Schweder, whose father was head of Malmö’s cycling club and also imported bicycles from England. Erik was sent over to learn the family business, and took the opportunity to play golf while in England.

Back in Sweden the duneland of Falsterbo was the obvious place to look for somewhere to continue playing. Erik and his friend Adolf Faxe started their search in the spring of 1909, and by October of that year had founded the golf club. Many members were recreational cyclists.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

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...
