Österåkers Golfklubb (Västerled/West course)

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

Est. 1988

Österåkers Golfklubb (Västerled/West course): The L-shaped layout of Österåker's Västerled (West) course, as distinct from the shorter Österled (East) course, provides a challenging golf outing which is played in two contrasting environments. One side of the L runs alongside a fairly busy road, where the layout projects an open, links-style quality. From the downhill par-3 4th to the even better island green downhill par-3 7th, you play along the other side of the L, in a charmingly picturesque woodland valley. The valley, with forest on either side and a wonderfully natural water hazard running through the valley floor, is home to the middle section of both the front and back nines. Arguably your toughest challenge comes at the par-5 1st, with water and deep rough awaiting any wayward drives, as you journey towards the first of several well-protected and elevated greens. On-course upkeep here is generally first-class. Combined with the slightly shorter and more straightforward Österled course, as well as very good lunch facilities, Österåker has all you need to enjoy excellent golfing day out.
