From the E18 (Orebro - Karlskoga highway) take exit Lanna and Golf sign. After 600 metres golf parking is on your right.
Lanna Lodge Golf Resort (previously known as the Örebro Golf Club) is home to an excellently designed, wooded parkland golf course. Surrounded by forested hills, the layout understandably contains its fair share of tree-lined holes. There is generally enough space to hit the fairways (or semi-rough) safely, while ball finding between the trees is not too problemmatic should you occasionally stray offline. But don't cut too many corners on the gently sweeping dog-leg par-4s, of which there are many fine examples. Water hazards are scarce, and only a significant factor on one par-3. A few slopes, particularly on some of the earlier holes, will loosen the leg muscles, but overall this is not a tiring course to walk. Although the E18 highway separates part of the golf course from the rest, the road is not a sufficient distraction to spoil your enjoyment of another of Sweden's inland gems.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance (visitors can book 3 days ahead of day of play). Maximum handicap: 36.
Players generally walk this course.
Orebro Golfklubb was forced to file for bankcruptcy in 2010 and was subsequently sold to Lanna Lodge, the company that ran, and continues to run, the onsite hotel facility.
