Playing three golf courses in one day can be a fun and challenging experience. In the southern parts of Sweden, there is an area that holds 3 great courses with only a 20-minute drive separating them. The place is called Näset – some people call it a golfer’s paradise and I´m not arguing on that statement. Falsterbo GK, Flommens GK and Ljunghusens GK are fantastic courses with costal scenery and provides the closest to links golf you can get in Sweden.
But before you decide to take on three courses in one day here are some tips to help you make the most of your day that I wish I thought of before doing this:
Falsterbo GK is a historic course that's been around since 1909. It´s one of Sweden’s best golf courses without doubt. The course is set against the backdrop of the Falsterbo peninsula with some amazing coastal views and sand dunes. There is also a lighthouse that adds to the experience. You will face tight fairways, deep bunkers and undulated greens so placing your shots is the recipe to a low score. My favourite hole is no.11 – a short par 3 with water on both sides guarding the green. If anything – my experience is that the course is sometimes too tight so be prepared to yell Fore!
Flommens GK, a beautiful course situated along the coast of the Baltic Sea. The course is most famous for all its water hazards. There is one on each hole I think so bringing an extra pack of golf balls might not be a bad idea.
The course starts with a par 3 which is kind of unusual but it gives a bit of extra character to the course – don’t be short or you’ll end up in the water. As you make your way around the course, you'll encounter a variety of different holes, including long and narrow fairways, doglegs, tricky greens and water hazards. Overall, Flommens GK is a great course, offering a fun and challenging course with stunning coastal views with coloured bath cabins.
Ljunghusens GK also offers stunning views of the sea and the surrounding countryside. A recommendation is to stay away from the heather plants. If you end up there it´s hard to find the ball in there and if you do it takes some luck and skill to save par. You need to be somewhat strategic, and laying up sometimes might be the best approach.
My favourite hole is no.18 – great view of the ocean and the clubhouse in the background. With water all along the right side up to the green, it's best to keep an eye on your slice - otherwise, you'll end up in the water.
If you play Ljunghusens GK as the last course – take the opportunity to try out their restaurant. Great food and the restaurant provide stunning views of the golf course and the surrounding landscape. Whether you're a golfer or not, it's definitely worth a visit.
