Varbergs Golfklubb (Östra/East course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1976

Varbergs Golfklubb (Östra/East course): This very peaceful and picturesque setting may well remind you of golf in the highlands of Scotland; the small rocky outcrops are trimmed with heather; there is a good sized lake, firs trees abound, but there are no mountains to speak of.

As you survey the heavily forested surrounding hills from the first tee, you may think a tree-lined round lies in wait - you'd be partly right. This shortish golf course is quite compact and uses the undulating terrain to excellent effect.

You'll find many drives require accuracy rather than length, not least at the par-5 17th, where the fairway winds its way snake-like through a corridor of trees. Another of Sweden's little gems.

Did you know?

The Varbergs Golfklubb dates back to 1950, however the two courses currently in play were created in 1976 (Östra/East) and 1992 (Västra/West).

Although part of the same Varbergs Golfklubb, the Östra and Västra courses are located 13 miles apart; the former in a forest environment just south of Rolfstorp, the latter just north west of Tvaaker and south of Varberg, close to the E6/E20 Malmo-Goteborg motorway.
