Kungsbacka Golfklubb (Gamla/Old course): Short par-3s open and close proceedings on the Gamla Banan (Old course); in between is a real pot pourri of golf experience. Until the par-4 5th things are pleasantly parkland, but nothing too remarkable. The wind usually freshens at the par-5 6th as you head towards the sea, which can be glimpsed from the tee. From the 6th through to the 11th the terrain remains flat and offers picturesque views along an inlet and out to sea. Things change dramatically at the par-3 13th, where a hilly journey ensues through a craggy and rocky landscape, with the requirement to hit tee shots with pin-point accuracy. Course management combined with local knowledge will assist the building of a good score, so don't expect to set the course record on your first outing (and with a membership that includes Fredrik Jacobsen and Sophie Gustafson, you may be hard pushed to do it on your second or third visit !). Kungsbacka is a very busy golf course and often difficult to get a tee-time - but well worth it if you can.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
