Rya Golfklubb: A real mix of seaside and parkland golf lies in wait here at Rya on the shores of the Oresund. The first four holes are next to the sea and catch the worst of the wind - get round these in par and your luck's really in. A short (stiff) climb takes you up to the main part of the course where a classic parkland landscape is interspersed with spectacular views across the Oresund to Denmark and the island of Ven. The par-5 8th and par-4 10th both require good drives in a seaward direction from significantly elevated tees. The golf course is well presented and the terrain rolls up and down before the par-3 16th drops you back down to clubhouse level for the closing two holes.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Official handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].

Rya was originally established in 1934 as Helsingkrona Golfklubb and changed to Rya two years later in 1936. Looking north from Rya golf course you clearly see the top part of the Oresund, where the sea between Sweden and Denmark narrows to just 4 kilometres - the closest these countries come distance-wise.
