Best golf courses: Denmark

Golf in Denmark: The southernmost Scandinavian country, Denmark also has the mildest climate. It can sometimes be very wet in this part of the world, receiving enough rain to ensure lush landscapes and thick grass, ideal for the golf courses. Denmark is one of the countries with the lowest green fee in the entire European Union, and offers the perfect golf holiday with over 200 golf courses plus many quality accommodations opportunities in connection to the courses. Denmark boasts both inland and coastal courses, sometimes nestling on the country’s many islands, or again close to seaside resorts. The North and Baltic Seas are never far away. To make the most of your golfing trip, and to help in your planning, you can look up the location of the best courses in Denmark on our customised maps.

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.
