The breeding ground for the extraordinary advancement of Europe’s most northerly inhabitants is Scandinavia’s fine selection of championship golf. In fact, in Halmstad, Scandinavia boasts continental Europe’s 4th best course!
It may only be suitable for golf during the warmer summer months, but Scandinavia should certainly not be discounted as a golf holiday destination. The majority of avid golfers will continue to head for Spain and Portugal, but if you are in search of a departure from the norm, then why not consider Sweden, Denmark, Norway, or even Iceland?
Sweden naturally dominates the golfing landscape, and there is one particular stand out; around Malmo, across the strait from neighbouring Denmark, there are golf courses of an astonishing quality. In addition to the aforementioned Halmstad, Falsterbo, Barseback and Ljunghusens combine to form one of the best golf tours to be enjoyed outside the United Kingdom and Ireland.
