Kungliga (Royal) Drottningholms Golfklubb

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

Est. 1959

Kungliga (Royal) Drottningholms Golfklubb: In close proximity to the Swedish royal family's summer palace, in the quiet environs of the island of Drottningholm, this very pleasant parkland course has often played host to the top tour professionals of the European Tour. Following a recent renovation project completed in 2012, the course has regained much of its original strategic challenge and natural feel, which had been eroded over time.

The outward nine still plays over relatively open country, with a slightly more testing and tree-lined back-nine. Several elevated tees give you a good view of where the hazards lurk. There are not too many obvious water hazards, but check your yardage book for the location of several fairway hugging water ditches. The back-nine contains three excellent par-3s, among them the beautifully crafted 18th, which demands a water-crossing from tee-to-green. Here on the island of Drottningholm you have the chance to card a good score on this not excessively long, but tranquilly "royal" and (moderately) "ancient" golf course.
