Kungsängen Golf Club (Kings course)

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

Est. 1993

Kungsängen Golf Club (Kings course): There is no doubting the European Tour credentials of this purpose-built championship course. A great golf course to play, even if the proximity of the Stockholm - Vasteras motorway provides a small distraction (although not a major issue). The mainly tree-lined holes have been created for tournament professionals and amateurs alike, with a mix of tight-ish dog-legging par-4 and 5's that require skillful course management to score well. The short par-4 6th and par-3 7th is a classic lake-hugging combination, while the par-5 18th is one of the great closing holes on any European Tour course. Much of the forest still has some way to go before reaching full maturity, so the towering firs and birches, of say Halmstad or Barseback, are still a few years away. The overall feel here is maybe one of creating a golf course and letting it mature over time, rather than sculpting something out of a ready-made natural forest.
