Danderyd, nr Stockholm, Stockholms län S - 182 57
18 holes. Tree-lined & open parkland. Undulating terrain - several slopes to climb.
Residential and lakeside.
Current course at Kevinge designed in 1932 by John S.F. Morrison* (of Colt, Alison & Morrison) together with Rafael Sundblom (of Stockholm GC, the first modern golf course architect in Scandinavia). *It is possible Harry Colt did the design work himself, but it is more likely to have been his partner John Morrison.
10 km N of Stockholm
Take the E18 out of Stockholm heading north-east (direction Norrtalje). Leave E18 at exit 169 (Dandryd Sjukhus). Turn right with hospital in front of you, and climb gentle hill. After 150 metres turn left direction Stockholms Golfklubb. After 150 metres golf is on your right. Park in undercover parking.
Stockholms Golfklubb: The second oldest golf club in Sweden can boast a pleasant parkland course situated a few kilometres north of Stockholm's city centre. Although apartment blocks beyond the course come into view on parts of the front-nine loop, the back-nine gets you alongside the Edsviken waterway, for a few scenic lakeside holes.
As a par-69 the course is inevitably on the short side and quite compact in places. Shouts of "Fore!" are not too uncommon here. Some of the best holes in the layout, especially the par-4 1st, 2nd and short doglegging 11th, make good use of a small steep hill, around which the course flows. The show-stealer is the par-3 14th, played directly alongside the Edsviken.
Accuracy versus length is at a premium throughout, with a combination of attractive bunkering, trees and occasional rough providing good definition to the holes. Always presented in excellent condition, this is one of the more interesting golf courses to play in and around Stockholm ... and one of the closest to the city centre.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance (visitors can book 2 days ahead of day of play). Maximum handicap: men 24; women 30.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
