Vasatorps Golfklubb (Classic course)

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

Est. 1973

Vasatorps Golfklubb (Classic course): Following a considerable revamp of its facilities in the late 2000s, Vasatorp Golf Club now offers 54-holes of golf, with two 18-hole championship courses and two nine-hole layouts. Although pride of place now goes to the Arthur Hills/Steve Forrest designed Tournament Course (TC), the original Gamla (Old) course still puts up an excellent and enjoyable golfing challenge.

With its mix of tree-lined and open parkland holes, the early holes of both front and back-nines on the Old course are accompanied by an abundance of water ditches and small ponds. Careful course management is required from the get-go. After these watery beginnings (for which the acquisition of a yardage book is highly recommended), much of the rest of the golf course is laid out on slightly higher ground, where it meanders through a pleasant woodland of oak, birch, silver birch and various conifers.

There are a couple of snaking par-5s to contend with at the 5th and 18th, as well as several testing and curvaceous par-4s, all adding up to a testing course for the local Helsingborgers and visitors alike. The par-5 11th runs parallel to the Malmo-Gothenburg highway, which should not unduly bother your concentration on the golfing task at hand.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
