South­ern Swe­den

Golf Asia - - ESCAPE INTERNATIONAL -

On a spit of land in the ex­treme south-west of Swe­den are three fab­u­lous cour­ses so close to­gether you could cy­cle from one to the next! The star is Fal­sterbo, as close to a GB&I links as you’ll find in main­land Europe. The back nine is full of strong holes but the best is the 4th, a strate­gic two-shot­ter of rare cal­i­bre. Then there are 27 holes at Ljunghusen – a 1932 sea­side heath­land that oozes qual­ity – and Flom­mens, set on flat wet­lands. The area is a pop­u­lar hol­i­day re­treat, which means there are many charm­ing restau­rants and bars to en­joy in the evening. For a longer stay, the Kyle Phillips-de­signed duo at PGA Na­tional (which has rooms) is just 20 min­utes from Fal­sterbo and if you keep trav­el­ling there are three more Top 100 cour­ses within an hour: mod­ern Vasatorps plus two Sol­heim Cup venues; wood­land­sea­side hy­brid Barse­back and Halm­stad.
